Oops, I got to my hunting spot, loaded the vest, water, gps, pliers, camera, hmmm no shells. Start fumbling all thru the truck and darned if I didnt drive to the woods and forget shells and the cell phone. I can live without both, but usually if the dog is doing her job its nice to have a loaded gun. Well, I had the dog and camera and carried the gun to fool the dog? So off we went. At least the colors were great, but finally I got a point. I set the gun down and went for the picture. It was a non productive point, I suspect a grouse had been walking around but at least I got a few good pics. No birds heard or seen. At least this cover was very close to home, and I did have a camera to "shoot with" so I felt productive.. The cover was pretty close to home, so I stopped by the house on the way to the next cover.
