Standing on a corner east of Winslow, Arizona. Desolate landscape. 3 hours in and dog needed a break! Dogs traveling better than I thought!

I'm heading to NW North Dakota to do some work and huny birds. My family farms and ranch there. Great hunting for just about everything.

Usually I fly, but don't like sending my dog on the plane. Did it once, never again.

Stopped a couple time to let her run a bit. Must have worked she's sacked out.

Bad moon rising Las Vegas, NM. Biggest damn moon I've seen. Doesn't look so in this picture, but it was actually darker out and the moon looked like the sun.

Bird hunt a lot, all over the Midwest and West, North Dakota has been good to me…actually founded Hunt Redi, a very small (me and a few dogs 😅) upland gear company a many number of years ago. Best of luck, nothing like wide open spaces following the hunter with the longest nose. Sage travels.

Yeah, nothing like a good bird dog. I hunt quail in Arizona.

I'll be hunting with my boy's brittany, Buck, too. I shot his first birds for him last season in ND. Fun to see the dogs work.

First night in motel manners! May ad well take advantage of pet fee.

I've never traveled with a dog without a camper. Sucks!

I spent 6k keeping my GSP alive before she turned 1, and 300/month for medicine. She has Addison disease. She is now 7 and yes she lives the good life, hence the princess comments from my wife.
 
My first one was a handful! She was bullet proof and fearless in her mind. Lots of vet bills from going too hard all the time. $2500 for a rattlesnake bite after she had avoidance training twice. I'd give another $10k to hunt with her again this weekend.

Kya found a small herd of antelope that I didn't see. First time she's seen anything like that and the race was on, she must have hit 25 mph to catch them. She blew rright through the ecollar on max and put about 1 mile on before she managed to turn the herd right back towards me. I wasn't sure I was going to see her again. She slept for 300 miles after that.

They are some crazy athletic dogs.....more than a handful sometimes.

Looks like you’re having a great trip. I had the family out that way last summer.

That's a good trip. Moab is awesome. I mountain bikes some great trails there, would like to do some offroading there.

I understand completely. I was at my hunting land a couple of years ago and Breez came almost eye to eye with a whitetail. As you said it was on. I spent the next 2 hrs trying to find her in the woods. Thought I had lost her, but she eventually came back. She was just a very tired girl when I loaded her up.
 
Windy as hell in the plains of NW Wyoming. BIG country up here you can see for miles.
