HUNTING -- It was cold and dreary Saturday and my friends all had excuses for not going chukar hunting.

But my English setter was more than ready.  With temps in the teens, the footing was good and a dusting of snow helped in the search for birds.

It's good to have a friend willing to go any time, any day ... especially a friend who runs his butt off finding birds and lets you do all the shooting!
