Slow start to the season

So far this fall there's been many changes in our lives. We have finally moved to eastern Idaho I now live on the north side of Idaho Falls. With the new move came challenges of where to find game.

West of Idaho Falls is some of my favorite country in the whole world.  As you can see in the first picture it is like a sea of sagebrush.  It goes on and on and on. 

In the second picture you'll see some sage grouse poop that I found a top of a cinder butte in the middle of nowhere.  Rising up from the desert floor gave me this beautiful overlook.

I have been fortunate enough to find sage grouse on every trip to the desert.  I'm looking forward to bringing 1 of these big beautiful birds to the bag.  One thing I love about the desert is being able to watch the dogs do their work.

Recently I had the chance to take Taron Keaton my older boys to the NAFA meet in Vernal Utah over the week of thanksgiving.  It was a good experience for all of us, But I'm afraid we might have to take a pass on future ones until the younger boys are old enough to go.

Thanks for looking and have a great hawking season.
