Tex turns 3 today . . . Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!

It is hard to believe that Tex turns 3 years old today. Time has certainly flown by . . . all the more reason to hunt often and hunt hard! Hopefully we have a decade of hunting together in front of us.

Colorado Walk-In Area Bird Hunting

Yesterday was a picture perfect day to visit one of Colorado’s many walk-in hunting areas. Colorado does a nice job trying to provide hunting opportunities and has enrolled about 215,000 acres in this program that allows hunters to access private land at no cost. In addition to free hunting we had perfect weather – highs in the mid-40’s, partly cloudy with a slight breeze.

Spring at the Dog Park

Tex begins his third spring romping at the dog park. He has that German Shorthair drive to run and swim like he is in a race. The park is the perfect place to let him burn up some pent-up energy and wear him out for a while. At 94 pounds, he is our big moose GSP.

Two Pointers

Here are two wonderful dogs sharing a point that will never happen.

The dog in the back is Rio, a true hunting machine. She was the dog I learned to hunt with and was my hunting buddy for 6 years. We loved that dog but she was a tough animal to have in the house. At times, she was like a wild horse and did more than her fair share of damage. All things considered though, the mischief and cost were worth it. A good dog can get away with quite a lot.  Sadly, we lost her to cancer in November of 2011.

Tex, in the foreground, is the sweet boy who is with us now. He is a solid hunter (but not the maniac that Rio was) and is our beloved family dog. With Tex, we get the best of both worlds. Tex was born in February of 2012 so he never got to hunt with Rio. They would have made quite a team.

Hopefully this is a glimpse of heaven.

Doggy Pics

When you get old, Santa looks exactly like a UPS driver. A beardless skinny dude who wears shorts no matter what the weather is. This year Santa delivered a full frame Nikon D610 FX camera. This is an upgrade from the DX format camera that took all the pictures in this blog up until now. To test this thing out, Tex and I went to the dog park today and I snapped these shots.

This truly is a phenomenal camera. You can find plenty of reviews on the internet that tell you why this camera is awesome . . . almost as good as you can get. After a couple of days messing around with it, I believe them!

18 Months of Tex

Tex turns one and a half years old today and is celebrating at doggie day care with his pals. We have had a great summer and very soon Tex will be into his 2nd hunting season. Last year he hunted well and this year we expect him to come into his own. If the stars align, he might get to hunt 6 states this year. No matter what, it should be a great year!

The small Shorthair is a 6 month old bitch named Roux (pronounced [roo]). This is one of the puppies from the earlier post “Cajun-German Shorthaired Pointer Pups Available” where you can see her as a newborn pup. This was her first time hunting and she was astoundingly good!
