It's here! The arrival of the "two month itch"...55 days and a "wake up" and it's bird season! I succumbed to the itch at 9:00 pm last night and thought I should spread it to my dog...I grabbed a frozen pheasant from the freezer and dragged it along the fence and placed it in a nice over grown area of the lawn, and went inside to go get the 'mule' a.k.a Libby (at 19 months she has become a horse of a female choc. lab!...she's push'n 90 at least!). I hadn't gotten five feet from her and she picked up the scent on my hands and immediatly went nuts! Let her outside and, had her heel and sit and commanded her to HUNT! As if she was connected to wires above she followed the exact scent line right to the bird...after at least a 6 month hiatus she still has IT. Man I can't wait!
