Both Kent and I love to hunt pheasants. Our dogs have a natural ability to hunt upland birds. They seem to enjoy it as much as we do. We pheasant hunt almost every day that they season is open both the early and late hunts, but because there are not as many wild birds any more my husband goes on a trip to Canada every year. They shoot up to 100 birds in a 2 day hunt 80% of the birds are flushed and retrieved by our dogs.
