Junior Hunt Weekend

Hello =) Junior Hunt Weekend was a great success! Saturday we changed the beagle hunt from Yutan-too many crops were still in the fields-to The Farm at Butterflat Creek.

Welcome back! After a LONG hiatus from hunting, we came back with a BANG ! Burwell never lets us down. Always beautiful, challenging and exciting.

Hunting at the kennels

We Came. We Viewed. We chased. We cool Omaha is apparently the new Canada. Another week of sub freezing weather and ridiculous winds.

We started at 2:30 and headed home […] Continue Reading
