BIFF's Hunting Log

As fly fishermen, our respect for game and nature extends beyond the river,
into the field ...

Over Presidents Day weekend, I was joined by my dad and nephew Coby in the Virgin River Gorge section of the Arizona desert for some "yard work" with Gillie.

Mike & Troy - Gillie's New Fans

Mike, Scott, and Troy spent a beautiful sunny winter afternoon in the field with Gillie, and she worked hard finding us some pheasants.

Mike and Troy made some great shots on some tricky flushes. And, we learned to let Gillie hunt - it's now very obvious that she actually knows where the birds are better than we do (duh!).

An Excellent Birthday Hunt

John, Ryan, and I headed to the field for a "birthday" hunt. Some fine roosters and a surprise chukar made our day, and I'd like to shout out a special "thanks" to John and Ryan.

Gillie gets exponentially better each time in the field, and at 9 months old she makes me proud. All that talent, and a great friend & companion - love that girl!

An Impromptu Outing

Sometimes the impromptu outings are the best. John and I took Gillie for a walk, and she found us some pheasants.
