Funny you should as. Yes, yes I do. I hunt them as much as 190 days per year.
Often my season starts in September in the Dakotas, head over to Idaho, Montana, occasionally Washington state and then work my way back down through Nebraska, Kansas, and finish the season here in Texas up on the last day of February.
We hit a few field trials in between.
Duke pictured above is one of our younger shining stars.
His father Bullett (above) was our first Field Champion, and he has utterly mastered 11 species of upland birds across 13 states.
We've had German Shorthairs constantly since 1969 and in all that time I've only missed 4 bird seasons and those were due to overseas deployments.
Whenever I could though I'd always take leave during bird season as it was a great "mind wash" and a chance to just relax and have some fun.
