Spent the past eight days going to and coming back from and hunting in South Dakota; Pheasant hunting. It was cold but we had a pretty good hunt. Lots of small birds from second hatches due to the wet earlier this year and many places are still flooded. Our host and farming partner did not plant this year because of wet. Wonderful hosts and always a great time. nice to have such caring friends. Don't know why they put up with me, I swear!

Beginning preparing for my trip to Florida for the winter. Wonder what I'll forget this year? Had a message that it cooled down there over night. May be a long chilly one this year.
