It's shaping up to be a really busy Colorado bird season here in just a couple weeks.  Next weekend is the CO State Fair and I'll need an entire season in the mountains to walk off the calories.  Good thing there are so many species to chase!

Thank god the pheasant season opens soon, this was the last one in my freezer.  Had to give it a fitting end.  Braised in @moabbrewery beer with fingerling potatoes, leeks, and brussels sprouts with a little kosher salt English butcher's rub and garlic powder -- a meal fit for a king.

45 minutes at 425 in a covered dutch oven and it was heavenly.

A throwback Thursday to my first grouse in the Alleghenies!  It was 2011 and my dad had just gotten Luci our English Setter not six months ago.  She was unproven in the field but had so much instinct and raw talent we knew she'd be an unstoppable force.  Do I look a little old for my first grouse?  Either I needed time to hone my aim or grouse hunting really is one of the most humbling experiences even for a marksman.

What are some of the essentials you carry in your bag or vest on your Upland Adventures? A must have for me is a Valley Quail call, extra ammo and a small sharp knife (or three)! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #NoDogNoProblem #Ithaca37 #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #QuailHunting #ChukarHunting #DoveHunting #RuffedGrouseHunting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #UplandLowlife #QuailForever #PheasantsForever #RuffedGrouseSociety
Now, ain't that a sight?

Sometimes... you gotta get a little wet to find the birds (or not). And yes, snipe hunting is an actual thing. And no, I didn't see any. Still had fun!

Time to prepare and start scouting locations for this coming Upland Season! #UplandJitsu #Ithaca37 #GunsDaily #gunsofinstagram #gunsofig #shotgun #shotty
Summer is a season of upping up preparations and scouting for the upcoming upland season. Early reports seem to be promising due to a mild California winter and late spring rains. Time to start scouting!

After getting shut down on my hunting draws I decided to cook up some wild pheasant. It's funny how I watch shows and read books on the process of cooking wild game but I just fry it up in a pan with some cajun spice, chop it up, toss it in a tortilla with some cheese and then throw it in the oven. Works every time. #uplandjitsu #pheasanthunting #fajitas #meateater #wildgame #eatwild #uplandhunting

Now here's one you don't  see everyday! My work buddy @blackwoodraybjj just inherited this old Marlin Model 24 in 16ga from his Great-Grandfather (whom he never met)! Isn't it awesome to see a legacy passed down from generation to generation like this? This old hull-shucker just needs a little TLC and some range time! Wouldn't mind taking this one out in the uplands going after some quail!

Not an expert on Marlin myself, but doing a little research for my buddy. Thinking this one might be from the 1920s or 1930s! Experts feel free to chime in!

Here Lily is demonstrating a basic skill of being an awesome gun dog.  Taking drinks in the field from a water bottle!  It took tons of practice, and what must have looked a little like waterboarding to the untrained observer, but we finally got her to take water from the bottle on a hot day.  That way we could do without a collapsible water bowl in the field and just pack a couple different water bottles, one for humans, one for critters.⠀

Albus had his first AKC hunt test pass on Monday. This means a great deal to me since he was the first dog I have trained and handled myself. He did great, worked well, and most of all he had fun. He was so happy to be in the field and it was absolutely amazing to watch him work his birds! I’m glad I was given the opportunity by @aprilsyers to train her beautiful pup. He’s got a bright future and I can’t wait to get back to it for his Senior and Master Hunt tests as well as NSTRA! #gundogs #gundogsofinstagram #germanshorthairedpointer #germanshorthairedpointersofinstagram #uplandmonster #uplandjitsu #akchunttest #juniorhunterpass #gspofinstagram #solidblack #itwashot #puremichigan #huntemup

Time for some TLC and some new laces! Upland Season is just around the corner afterall.... 😉

A good pair of boots is a must in the uplands. They need to be rugged. And they need to be comfortable! Nothing is worse than a bad pair of boots. A good set will keep you in the field for miles/hours and will last you a life time (save for a few new soles/laces). #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #NoDogNoProblem #QuailHunting #UplandHunting #Wingshooting #UplandTradition #UplandLowlife #Pheasantsforever #QuailForever #Filson1897 #RedwingBoots #IrishSetterBoots

#tbt Last season's unsuccessful solo spring-turkey hunt... still had a great time! Hope some of you were able to fill your freezers with turkey meat this Spring!

Explored our own "backyard" and took the family out to Irvine Regional Park! It was great learning some cool historic facts that happened right here in Southern California. I think it is easy to forget how rich of a history we have here... as well as the hunting heritage that came with living in California back in the day! It was great to learn of old local pioneers who probably enjoyed hunting some quail as much as I did right here in SoCal! By the way... any guesses on the dog breed or what type of shotgun Mr. Irvine was using?

Spring is here. And finally we are getting some rain. It was a mild winter here and if we continue to get these favorable conditions... we should see another decent upland season!

Nice run this morning... spring training on woodcock and a bonus water retrieve on a long island bobwhite that flew up and didn't make it to across the pond.  No I didn't have a gun... guessing it was wounded.  One quail...one woodcock point.  Love running dogs

I have been playing with ideas for new ammo in the Ithaca 37. By 2019, California is adopting a Statewide ban on all lead ammo when hunting or taking game. California has already implemented this lead free transition on much of the legal taking of many species already, however, some species like quail, have until 2019 to comply. Steel shot is not a great option for my old vintage Ithaca, so I am looking to try out some other options like Bismuth. It is pricey, but is very similar to lead and seems to be vintage barrel-friendly. My goal is to keep this old gun in the field for as long as possible. Has your State implemented any bans on lead shot ammo for upland hunting? How have you managed and what ammo have you used in your old vintage guns? #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #KentAmmo #Bismuth #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #CaliforniaQuail #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #MountainQuail #UplandLowlife #Filson1897 #FilsonLife #OrvisHunting #FindYourWild #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #QuailForever

This is how it all started for many of us. No gun. Not even licensed yet. But determined to keep up and put in the work. The seed was planted for many of us this way. Keep our heritage and traditions alive by taking someone who is new to hunting out with you! I can guarantee you there are a ton of people out there who want to hunt... they just need a mentor or helping hand. 
Regrann from @bigazadventures -  Probably my favorite picture from this last bird season. He didn’t shoot the bird, but he’s old enough to start tagging along and to join in on the adventure. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail

Some may look at this and say...gloomy..cold.. lifeless..grey.  I see it in a whole different light.  Heaven to me.  Great morning out with Grouse buddy @jimmycrf450  and Fatso.  Birds were there...they had our number.  That's why they call it hunting and not killing.  Fatso had a great run.

⬅️⬅️⬅️ Swipe for all of the birds! ⬅️⬅️⬅️. Some of the birds from this past season. Started off getting my first Grouse, followed by Gambels, Mearns and Scaled quail. Some of these pictures I have posted before, but think they look a lot better after some post production in Lightroom. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail #grouse

Probably my favorite picture from this last bird season. He didn’t shoot the bird, but he’s old enough to start tagging along and to join in on the adventure. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail
Here’s a good morning hunting up in some AZ high deserts. Beautiful countryside and some gorgeous birds.  Been cleaning up some pics from over the last couple of months from some bird hunting trips and fishing trips. Helps pass the time while my little girl recovers from surgery and take my mind off of everything. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail

Earlier this past season, we ran across a field that was littered with empty shotgun hulls and boxes that were used for target practice. There was no way to describe the mess that was made, other than just plain gross. This was clearly not an "aw shucks... I didn't see where that empty hull went" scenario. This was a blatantly disrespectful act against our public lands (that we share) and prime quail habitat. It took two full vests to haul this stuff out. These are our public lands. If you use it, take care of it. If you see a mess someone else left behind... as a steward of these lands, pick it up and know you are appreciated! Special thanks to @soypepinoriick and @key_air_uhh for taking the time to stop their hunt early to help me pick up after these slobs! You are both great examples of the future of conservationists and advocates for our Public Lands! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandHunting #BackCountryHuntersandAnglers #BHA #QuailForever #Pheasantsforever #RuffedGrouseSociety #Filson1897 #FindYourWild #UplandTradition

Two #frenchbrittany on point, @axioma7ic approaching from the side. The dogs worked up another 50 feet to find the single that I missed. Should’ve kept the shotgun down and just kept recording.  Off camera is @jonprawitt. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail
