Hiked into a distant canyon in the deep snow in search of birds. Found an elk trail which made the going a lot easier. Dog had a heck of the time in the deep snow but adapted. Jumped a lot of birds and stopped at 5. Tried to only shoot males

Finding and retrieving was hard work .Look closely and see my dog's tail tunneling under sage brush Shot birds landed on top of the sage. (See dog's nose). Too high to retrieve. While one quail managed to hide 3 feet under snow and a big sage brush

Great photos Tom-it looks like our group had less success than others this weekend! I love hunting in the snow, and maybe we should have headed up toward the Winthrop cabin and hunted in the snow. Our season is just about done! Rick

Returned in search of more birds. The crust that developed and deep snow necessitated that the dog be left at home.

Improvised with XC skiis to access area. Let me tell you not easy to jump shoot on XC skiis!

manage a few quail and chukar
