Yup, he was a nice looking rooster. His mistake was cackling to give the girls an idea where he was and then flew over out of the safety zone and landed in the thick stuff in the middle of the field. Wasn't long after that "The Girls" found him and we had a flush.
Nah, they were wearing their camo and trying to hide on the dogs. NOT!
The second one was a real pain in the butt. Saw him as the dogs were pointing and tracking. He went one way so I got into the hedgerow so I could shoot when he went out the opposite side. He then runs between both dogs and back down the hedge. I step back in and he goes back towards the dogs and then figures he better scoot out the other side. Of course I'm in the worst position to get a shot at this point. But I manage to break a wing and he no sooner hit the ground and Reba was running him down. No contest.
