Keith Criner, Tyler Ginn and JW Catt stopped by on their way to their annual duck hunting trip in central Illinois. They left home a day earlier to enjoy some upland bird hunting and a night’s lodging at Sandy Run. I stocked a mixture of pheasant, chukar and quail in the Clubhouse field and headed out with Curly to hunt them up. They picked a beautiful warm and sunny day, so the birds were up and on the move. Curly along with Mac and Sol found them all and a couple extra pheasant, some good shooting and the boys had a benchful of birds at the end of the hunt.
