Brian and Michael, Upland Bird Hunt

Michael Galvin set up an upland bird hunt for his buddy Brian Miller, in honor of Brian’s upcoming wedding, where Michael will be the best man. It was another hot dry afternoon when I set out some pheasant, quail and chukar in the Clubhouse Field. Sol and Mac got to come out first finding most of the birds. This was the first upland hunt for both of them and after the surprise of the first pheasant rise, they started knocking some out of the air. Curly and Ava came out next to get into a few more chukar and picking up the quail singles. They hit some birds hard that kept going, including a chukar that they drew feathers with 3 shots and still ended up across Sandy Run into the timber.
