    The wife couldn’t wait to get some pictures of him after his first “hunt” if thats what you wanna call it.

    First thing this morning the wife and kids were singing happy birthday and giving him homemade doggy cupcakes including helping him blow his candles out. For dam sure that kinda hype won’t happen on my birthday. Guess I take a backseat to my own darn dog now. Lol. I think they are inviting the neighbor dogs over tonight to celebrate more. SMH.

    Well if you ever come back to a locked door at least the dog will have the new key.

    It was a fun weekend with the self proclaimed "geezers"! My dad (60) flew up from florida and my uncle gary (73) drove up from missouri for a long weekend of hunting. We only put on 4-5 miles everyday as the uneven ground from logging makes for some tough walking for them. Still had a ton of fun and saw 20-30 birds both days. My dad did lots of missing, my uncle is a sharpshooter!
    Our group selfie with some birds from day 2. 40608.jpeg 40612.jpeg This was a moment of yooper ingenuity. I had bought sirloin steaks and had promised a first class lunch (a good backup incase the hunting sucks!). No lighter? No problem!

    It was cold with inconsistent weather. The birds were fairly spooky and in sucky places to hunt them, but we had a great time nonetheless!

Bought the wife her own shotgun for our 9nth anniversary and got her out on her first pheasant hunt Saturday. Can anyone identify these eggs, the wife spotted them out in the field. She noted they were larger than chicken eggs. Closer in size to our duck eggs.

    Huh, I would have guessed pheasant eggs to be a bit smaller than chicken eggs. Thanks.

    Pheasant eggs in late October? I'm surprised - never seen that before.

    I see egg shells on occasion this time of year.Every year I went to North Dakota I would find a nest with shells.Ofcourse it was a huge density of pheasants in that area.
    This late summer I have found a few nests with shells.Many were turtle,a goose nest,turkey nest,and noticed swallow shells at my friend's place.
    Egg shells don't really decay.
    It has been a long time in Michigan since I've seen a pheasant nest.
    I don't believe anything has a nest this time of year.Pheasant,turkey,or a mallard are the only possibility with the size of the clutch.From what I have seen in my life I say pheasant but I could be wrong possibly.

    Pheasant eggs are smaller than a chicken egg.
    Ends get a round hole cut in them at hatching.
