Thank you sir for the welcome message, I need to check post more often. Went out west of Plainview Tx last week to hopefully chase a few birds and get my shorthair to burning some energy. Walked 6 miles hunting corners and got up one pheasant did not even try to shoot,,,, I says to myself and Hank the tired shorthair.if this is the only rooster in the country he deserves to live Amen... dry dry dry out west. I pray for all of us to hear one more quail whistle. Yall have blessed day.
