    Still lots of snow here, but today we did see some migrating red-winged black birds and we also found a couple of Easter eggs

    I was out crow hunting on the weekend with my GSP on retriever duty. I let her run between blinds, no woodcock where found but we did get a nice point on a grouse which was nice to see(breeding stock). I am getting reports that the woodcock are starting to show up in Pennsylvania, so they are right on are door step. Bird dog enthusiasts, get them ready. Its almost time.

    Deer camp between Flesherton and Durham is more or less snow free in open areas but still some decent snow in the shady areas. Cottage in 47 though between Powassan and Restoule still has 18 to 24+ inches everywhere. OFSC sled trails in the area are still open as well although some are showing yellow status - usually means some of the low wet spots might be muddy/open.
    Bring a compass. It's awkward when you have to eat your friends.

    North of Barrie. Flushed 7 WC today in my usual first-of-spring spot.

    Moved 3 birds today. First 2 were horrible busted birds got me thinking Nova's got the terrible 2's. Granted the area is not conducive to steadying a young. Too much scent distraction from deer, coyote and a bunch of other dog walkers. Did make up on the third bird with a nice solid point. Got to find me a cleaner area with more birds.

    Sorry about the picture not much of a photographer but you get the idea eh?

    Our last 3 days - 2 otters, 2 ruffed grouse, 1 woodock and 13 deer. Perfect points on all the birds. One grouse the cagiest I've ever seen. Dog locked up and resent a couple times and the locked solid before I got to her. I got to her, walked around her, there was a pine tree top down and dead...lovely tangle. I literally kicked it....nothing. Dog worked the area. Moved on and came back. Only then did the grouse flush. I suspect it had tucked deep under the downed tree and was holding REALLY tight. Incredible.
