Well opening weekend has come and gone and things were really slow.  I had a friend of mine and his daughter come down from Crawfordsville, IN and hunted with me Greg has a young Brit named Ben.  We started across the road from house and Gem pointed a pair of woodcock and no shots were offered.  Ben later bumped another woodcock again no shots.  We never did find the quail, after a great lunch from Tina Hillary took the afternoon off and Greg and I hunted another piece of property that held a large covey last year but when only found one small covey with 7 or 8 birds Greg took on bird and we decided to call it a day.  My dog Jet pointed the covey and I had a nice back from Ammo.  Didn't get to hunt Saturday as my son and his family came up from Evansville for a visit.  I went out Sunday with Kate, Morgan and Patch ran along for the experience.  I did not take a gun as Patch has never been properly been introduced to the guns yet.  I just wanted the other 2 dogs to get some time in the field in.  I put tape over the beeper collar and put it on Patch so I could start conditioning her to the beeper.  She did great after about half hour I put a slit in the tape to rasie the volume and she never even blinked by the end or the trip I had taken the tape off and it was running full volume and she never even noticed.  We never found any birds but the dogs had a great romp and Patch got some time in the briars and sticks and she did really well.  I have attached some pictures of Gem on point on the woodcock and Jet on the small covey of quail and one of Patch running in the field.
