Will Pennington with his pointers, Riley and Lizzie.My friend, Cmdr. Will Pennington, Spent a week with me in Montana. We found the bird populations down a bit from previous years, but we had plenty of dogwork, including a classic find by Will's young pointer, Lizzie, on a covey of Huns. Will collected a double on a perfectly handled find. Impressive.
Unfortunately we had some very troubled weather the week Will was there - the Airstream froze while I was in Michigan and we had some work to do before it was fully habitable, and we had some very cold nights and rain/sleet that kept bird hunting more about hunting than birds. Still, we did find enough birds to enjoy each day. I think Will had a good time - I enjoyed his visit and hope that we can repeat again in the future.
