Well, it’s been a while.  I headed over to the John Day on my last hunt, back in mid-December.  Two friends and I stayed in Fossil, then hunted east of Fossil, near Service Creek and near Twickenham.  I actually only participated on the last day; I came down with the flu on the first day and was down for the count for days one and two.  I did go out with them, but spent the first two days sitting in my rig.  Pretty pathetic.  Actually, by not hunting, I only got one fewer birds than my two friends.  They only saw one covey each day and got a couple shots each.  Though I hunted the third day, I never saw birds at all.

Nice weather, though, and I covered new ground.  Saw some bighorns pretty close, too.
