Well, first hunt of the December Moon tonight. Went and did one stand. Figured a “throw away” that has never been successful would be a good place to start. Set up, looked though the scope thought... “this might work but it’s probably a bad idea. Should probably wait. I did drive all the way here through... 30 seconds in, owls start screeching... 3min in Owl attacks the call... comes and sits directly above my head in the pine tree... 5min in a second owl attacks the call. 7min in.... a blur, but what the h3ll is that? Both Owls now going completely ballistic... Scope.... dog just barely identifiable coming at a trot, 200yds out... can’t see him and the cross hairs at the same time. One or the other.... try to zoom in, just make it worse... loose him in the contours of the field.... I never saw him after that.... and he actually circled up wind of me not down... Hard to say if he’s been educated or not as I don’t think he saw or smelled me. Just didn’t like getting molested by the owls. His tracks were inside my tracks on the way back to the truck. That’s what you get for going when you probably shouldn’t. All the years I have been calling that farm I have considered the spot a throw away as I have never called anything there. It will still be a first stop location, but with the Oat stubble still on the field and not much snow it needs to be a bit brighter. No lights on Rifles here and no lights at all until after the first of Jan.
