Hey, Tim, where’s yours?
Today marked a milestone for our Golden Retriever pup, Phanny – Saturday Night Redtail Phantom. We took her for her first pheasant hunt. Initially, she thought we were just out for a stroll, enjoying a pleasant December day. To her surprise, there was a nice rooster pheasant in the grassy cover.
