Charlie Diecker came out with his brother Ron, son Brad, and friend Soap Chan for a pheasant and chukar hunt. Brittany, Reagan and English Pointer, Lincoln worked the north end of the Tinkerfarm field hunting the birds. The first freeze of the year burned off early and the day turned warmer and windy, keeping the birds on the run. The dogs hunted the prairie and milo strips hard and found nearly the birds as well as a few quail. This was Soap’s first pheasant hunt and he was able to knock down his first pheasant as well as some chukar.
