Mahogany Smoked Meats. After sampling a few we ended with the elk and wild boar jerky. We started our way south stopping a few locations. I managed to jump another pair. After missing the first shot I carefully aimed at the second. Clearly missing even more. I completely stopped my swing and shot under him as he was raising. Eventually we flushed another pair, I connected and saw the drake mallard fall on the opposite bank in the reeds. I had to navigate a way for the dog and I to cross. When we did we looked for the bird only to lose it. I can't believe we lost it. We looked for at least half an hour or more. I marked it well but it either dove or somehow swam away while we were trying to cross the river. The wingshooting season ends this Sunday and it is unlikely we'll head out again but at least Kaiser was able to do what he loves at least once this year. I think in the future I will forego cast and blast type trips. For me it's too distracting, either focus on fishing or focus on hunting.

mycelium. When conditions are right, the mycelium forms a fruitbody, pushing the mushroom up in order to disperse spores.

It was a rough last few weeks of 2015 as Kaiser was taken to the emergency room in the middle of the night and operated on for bloat. He has since recovered with the staples and Elizabethan collar removed but now is treated for heart arrhythmia. Looks as though the hunting season is officially over. It ended before it began.
