Just back from a cold & icy hunt in Maine. This is my buddy's dog, Lexi. This may have been her last hunt as she is going on 11 y.o. and has hip problems. The second photo is Lexi retrieving the bird that my dog, Darcy, pointed earlier that day.

Nice! Good for a dog to have a nice successful hunt before she retires.
My friend and I are planning a week in Maine next October. Remote 'camp' with no cell service but several cabins and a lodge with meals. Supposed to be great grouse country and some good brookie and salmon fishing as well.
