Yep and very few in the mountains, too. My 17 year old says we're hunting ghosts half the time, but, it's addictive. About 5 more weeks and it's my time of the year.

Hopefully there will be a few this season...I've been trying to get the dog in shape and if the weather cooperates will try to go to the woods around the first of October and then wait on the Glorious 12Th........

Ruff, I run a Setter sometimes, but, my Brittany all the time. Maybe we can meet up sometime in the next 5 months.

I really like the ghost analogy. It really feels that way when you hunt areas that used to always produce birds and there is none to be found. Its the dogs I walk behind and memories of the golden years that keep me going back in the thick stuff.
