The birds have been running a LOT more than normal this year. It has been pretty routine for me this year to have a dog go on point in a thicket at the bottom of a draw and when I walk in the covey will flush 40-50 YARDS away at the head of the draw. Part of it is that the cover is thinner than normal due to the dry summer. Anybody that talks about "Gentleman Bob" standing politely in the cover doesn't hunt the same birds I do. Their survival instinct never fails to amaze me.LOL, that looks like pheasant hunting. Roosters don't stop, they like to run and a good pheasant dog like mine no longer with us will keep you in good shape running after them while the rooster is running.
