Shakes

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

Creeps in this petty pace from day to day…

— William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Tomorrow we begin again. This off-season has seemed longer than others for some reason. Maybe I can blame it on Peat, who continues to exemplify quintessential puppy-hood mischief by stealing and bolting with whatever he can get his chompers on, causing me to embed in my brain what is probably the worst movie theme song of all time (“To Catch a Thief“).

Or maybe I’m getting younger and time is passing more slowly.

Nah.

Or maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been finding chukar in unexpected numbers and in unexpected places.

In any case, I’ll try to figure out something to do to make today pass faster, and try not to get my hopes too high for tomorrow.

But we’re ready. Are you?

This is what good bird dogs are reduced to during the off-season

  2. Waiting patiently wishing I was in Idaho. Have the grandkids this weekend anyway. Will have to settle for grouse hunting til chuckar season opens here. I be waiting to here about your weekend. Good luck

  3. Am I? I have packed and repacked my bags, exercised me and the dogs,read forecasts and now figuring out what to put in my new hunting vest. My vet said to carry benedryl (1ml per pound) to treat snake bite and bee stings: Doc says bring aspirin for my companions (he’s been chukar hunting). Mole skin helped get an old buddy off the mountain one day. Stiff soled boots. Can’t wait, good luck and safe hunting,
