woodCock are amazing upland birds That little is known of, on the east coast. They give hunters the most unique ShoTs. This is the seCond time this year we have been able to see the woodcock the dogs were Pointing and take photos of this wonderful camoflaged migratory bird. This year, 2018, per my journals i was blessed to flush 144 woodcock and we took 29 over my dogs while I was blessed to personally harvest 14. My good friend Robb moore harvested his first two wild game birds and both were woodcock. Justin Madron another good friend harvested his first woodcock and I harvested my first virginia woodcock.
James River Chapter RGS Woodcock Camp December 2108 near Richmond Virginia. First wild bird harvested for my good friend Robb Moore (@A Man and His Bird Dog). First woodcock for Justin Madron @jmadronwvu. My first Virginia woodcock. I could not be happier to have such good friends. Special thanks to Darrel Feasel President of the local chapter and who organized the event.
Woodcock Hunting in Virginia new years day 2018. We flushed 20 woodcock and kona pointed 13 of them. The furthest away he found one was 139 yards from us and he held until we approached and flushed the bird. Many people say they want a close working dog. For a french brittany in woodcock woods, I want a dog working within 200 yards of me and finding lots of birds, that will hold until i arrive!
