had about a foot of snow dumped on us in central ND, is now crusty enough for birds to run like mad, and both hunters and dogs get to plow through 3' drifts. even tree rows are hard to walk, but we managed to surprise a few roosters earlier today. still can't get to many of my favorite spots - don't want to bury my 4x4 truck. sleds would be useful these days!

The snow line seemed to be at Amidon. We were able to get a few pointed birds in the snow east of town, but the quality dog work was west of there.

We brought home a cooler full of pheasant, sharptail, and a few Huns. I didn't take any pictures, except of Sophie with a cone on her head after surgery Rolling Eyes , but I would have been smiling too. Sophie pointed a limit of Huns last Sunday before she ripped her armpit open on something in an abandoned homestead.

BTW, I don't have any gray hairs yet.

was going to go west towards MT this weekend as they had no snow 30 miles from here, but had to help 'decorate the house'... tis the season. next weekend! good to hear of your successful hunt. the nat'l wildlife refuge opened last weekend and had more than 300 hunters on it the first day - it is tough going with snow, but a nice place to spend a day and lots of birds cacklin - might need to get a day away from work to see it once again.
and i do have a few grey hairs : )

probably 雪鳥 "yukidori" coz
"yukitori" doesn't sound right to us japanese
since it almost sounds like "yakitori"
which means "grilled chicken."
