Clyde the Glide's first pheasant limit with pics.

Recommended Posts

Lots of corn still standing in western MN but it's been a gas to see my new pup work on pheasants. I can tell he's starting to get the hand of things after a few weekends. I shot my first two over him last Friday. It's been great to see him in action...he holds his head high and whiffs the air when he's getting on one, has his nose to the ground when he's getting closer...and he even had a few sweet first points. I just thought I'd share a few pics from the last couple weekends.

Uplander-When are we getting out grousin?! He's still got a lot of work to do in that dept!

Clyde and me with two birds from Friday.


His first bird from opening weekend.


My brother with his first rooster of the season last Sunday. Clyde locked up on this young bird at 9:05am.




Again, just thought I'd share some pictures from his first two rooster hunts. Can't wait til this weekend! Man, I forgot how fun it is hunting and watching a young dog work and get the hang of things. Hope everyone's getting out and having safe and fun hunting trips. Can't wait til this weekend!

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
