Ok, this one may not be that unusual for game, but it is for me due to my location. All the pictures are from 2008. I attempted a grand slam on all 4 of Colorado's Grouse that year. Though I did not connect with all 4, I had a great time trying, so not all the pictures will be "with" game. Each lives in such a different habitat and elevation from each other, having a versatile dog was a huge plus. I can't wait to do it again.

John,
You keep posting some great pics and stories... thank you.

These 3 shots are great. I have to admit, 2 & 3 are a fantastic.

Thank you.
That picture of Blaze standing in the golden Ferns at the edge of the Aspens is one of my favorites.

One more from the mountains.

Fiona,

There actually are several brands of hunting dog boots. Texas where I mostly hunt there are so many things that stick or cut you. Grass Burs, Cactus, flint chips, broken glass on lake shores, mesquite thorns, etc. As well other places I hunt such as Kansas and western Oklahoma where grass burs can kill a hunt without dog boots. And in these pictures Colorado Sage Desert where the ground is rock and little cholla cactus is everywhere, hunting a dog is not possible without boots. Fortunately, my V loves to were them.

This one was actually kicked up off the ground and stuck.



And the Grass Burs. On me, but imagine a dozen of these stuck between the toes of a Vizsla.
