My main spring activity from mid April through the end of May is taking my pointing dogs to the woodcock covers in search of hens & their chicks as a volunteer bander in Michigan. This morning my youngest pup Trace finally found his first brood!

To all who hunt woodcock, be sure to check any that you harvest for leg bands and/or GPS trackers and report any found.

I flushed a woodcock while turkey hunting this morning. We don’t have many residents, most are just passing through but this time of year every spring I see them.
