With every ring of the telephone, you are never really sure what it will bring.  Noon on Friday a friend calls me and asks what I'm doing Friday night and Saturday.  I respond, nothing, why?  He had started working for a farmer and they had both rented some ground west river SD.  He tells me that they have some dog towns and if I wanted to go shooting Saturday and he was leaving Friday night.  HECK YES I WOULD.  Get my stuff packed, have supper with the family and take off. 

Saturday was perfect.  High 70's with 5 to 10 mph breeze, full sun and the town we shot at had not been hunted for 5+ years.  We started by just leaning on the gate to the pasture and none of the dogs ran or went down their hole when we shot.  We would shoot a while, move ahead 25yds and shoot some more.  It got so bad that we had to double check to make sure the dog in our scopes was alive due to all the deceased ones.  It was truly amazing.  I had a pair of dogs come out of their hole 10 yds, yes ten yards, from me while we were shooting.  Do you know how hard it is to turn down you AO and the power ring while a p-dog is just sitting that close waiting to be picked off?  I wish I would have filmed it.

Helo, if the phone had not rang, I would not experienced the day.  But I am glad that I did get to go.  Saw something interesting on the way home when we crossed the Missouri river, an Elk!   He was big!  Had about 3' of antler on each side.  It was about 11pm, glad the brakes worked.
