The limit here is 3 birds per day, so lest you think this photo shows illegal activity, these five birds were acquired over the Thanksgiving weekend. Good job, guys!

Born to hunt
From late October through mid-January, it's pheasant season here in Iowa. That means every Saturday (and sometimes other days, too), my husband and our springer spaniel, Reggie, head into the fields. As Eric says, Reggie was born to hunt. I wish you could see how excited he gets when he discovers he's about to head out! Reggie has a keen sense of smell and is adept at "flushing" the birds and then retrieving them. Trust me, by the end of the winter, we'll have a freezer full of meat.
