Information on working terriers, dogs, natural history, hunting, and the environment, with occasional political commentary as I see fit. This web log is associated with the Terrierman.com web site.
The great game bird, woodcock. They wait until you almost step on them, then explode directly upward past your face at great speed, while you drop your 20Ga. in the mud. Great fun!I had a Springer Spaniel years ago who was a wonderful woodcock dog, but you had to be right on him and watch his body closely and them BOOM! up goes the woodcock! Great eating, their main diet is worms and their habitat is wet lowlands.These are also the guys that get caught in between your headlight beams if you drive right at sunup. Picture brings back many good memories of days afield and old long gone dogs. Thanks for that!
