Shags Run Visit and Dove field Report

       Louis and I took advantage of our day off and headed down to Shags Run to visit with Billy Gerwin, check out the new puppies, and take a look at the dove fields. Shags Run has been our gracious host for September dove shoots and upland hunts the last few years.

       The dove fields looked great with tons of sunflowers and buckwheat planted.  Billy has planted more fields with more food this then year any previous years.  He will be starting to cut hay soon which he says always brings birds in.  Even just hanging around the barnyard, I noticed birds working the fields and hanging around the farm.

 Of course we really went to see the puppies. They are approximately 6 weeks old. Click "read more" to see all the pictures.

The older dog is "Savannah". Billy is grooming this one to be a great house dog and field dog. She is about 4 months old and looks like she could my dogs twin.

She was super playful with the pups.

"Lulu" is the black lab. Billy is training her to flush and retrieve birds for bird hunts.

My dog, Rye, had a pretty good time with the pups as well. The pups are actually from the same mother and father as Rye.

This one really took a liking to my new Filson boots.
       Billy has seven pups left at this point but I think they will go quickly. You can contact us for more information.

       We also have spots available for dove shoots. $175 for a day of shooting, barbecue, and good company. These are a good time every year.
