HUNTING -- The frosty hard Palouse farm field beckoned me and my two bird dogs deep into the rolling hills and eyebrows this morning.
Then it got a few degrees warmer and nasty.
Hunting pheasants and keeping up with an English setter and a Brittany pup is significantly harder with a couple pounds of wet Palouse topsoil clinging to each boot.
But I was raised around Montana Missouri River Breaks clay "gumbo." Palouse topsoil is minor league misery compared with gumbo.
