Hunting before Christmas week

We got a late start traveling out to the Hunting Lands.
You can tell that Cody is pretty concerned about it.

We arrived at the trailer about 7pm.

On Thursday we started our hunting adventure about 9:30 am.

We went to our favorite spots and started out really good, 3 birds in 4 stops.

For the day we ended up with 3 roosters and 1 quail. Quail are really fun for us, it is getting rare to find quail, when we do Libby turns into a statue when she finds them.

We stopped in the little town of Palisade Ne. for lunch

This is the only restaurant in town and is run by volunteers from the town to keep a restaurant open for the folks. they have very good food.

We started hunting of Friday morning about 10 am. ( My hunting partner Gary got a late start, his mother, 97 years old now, has been admitted to a nursing home, trying to heal from a fall, nothing broken, hurt her back, docs think she will recover and be able to return home)

I attempted to get a picture with both dogs standing next to each other but, it became impossible with Cody never stopping .

At this point we had not had any luck getting close enough to the birds for a decent shot.

We decided to do a little "road " hunting. cruising very slowly down the country roads, Libby has to get as close to the windshield as she can, she even will leave nose marks on the windshield.

Cody stands between the seats, waits for us to stop.

about 2:30 we went to one of the spots we tried yesterday,.

We shot two birds, called it a day.

Cleaned the birds

Later that night we went to McCook Ne for dinner with Jeff, (his wife was having a girls only Christmas party, so we went and had BBQ)
