Latest Lexi. Some shots from the weekend…

Warmer weather has come early to New England, and Lexi and I have been out taking advantage of it. Here are some shots from the weekend.

  1. That dog has grown up real nice. Good looking point!
    So far so good. Your work is paying off!

  2. Good to see some fresh photos of Lexi. Thanks for sharing! I lost my EP to cancer this year. Before she died I put down a deposit on a pup from a litter due at the end of this month. Grief stricken, I came very close to canceling. These simple pics of Lexi are a reminder of why I love EP’s so goddamned much and why I won’t let the recent heart break keep me out of the grouse woods.

  3. Joey-

    Thanks for the note. I’m sorry to hear about your EP. I think the best way to get over the grief is to get a pup. I’m sure your new pup will be a joy. Which kennel is your pup from?

  4. The new pup is coming from Doug Tweeto (montanapointers.com). He’s hidden away up in the Flathead Lake area of Montana. He’s not much known outside of the Rocky Mountain West, but in the last decade he’s been quietly crossing elhew and fiddler blood. In our neck of the woods he’s garnered quite a loyal following of full-time, dedicated bird hunters.

  5. Excellent. Sounds like a great mix. Do you hunt in MT? I’ve hunted up in the northeast corner a couple times, but that what a while ago. Before the big oil boom.

  6. I’m actually in the process of moving to Missoula right now. I’ve barely scratched the surface when it comes to MT bird hunting. (Most of my hunting has been in Northern CA, Oregon and Nevada.) Last Fall we found the greater Missoula area just loaded with Ruffs. Crossing logging roads, chillin’ by trout streams, feeding in the tall grass and roosting in the pines. They were everywhere. Oh, and nobody else pursuing them. Call it “an embarrassment of riches.” Montanans really don’t care for them because of the incredible big game hunting the state has to offer. And the “serious” uplander takes to the eastern plains in search of huns, sharps and pheasant. The western grouse woods are indeed a lonely place.
