Bird Introductions to Maks

This was Maks first bird introduction. He may had some exposure to pigeons at his breeders kennel but I wouldn't know that. I think things went well. He showed no fear even when the bird fluttered its wings.

Maks



Maks is a Vizsla. This pointing dog is originally from Hungary and is said to be an old breed. Maks (pronounced mox) is six months old. It is sure a different change to have an almost puppy around. His basic commands are good, I have to reenforce them. Soon, will be an introduction to birds.

Tropical dreaming


Located off the coast of Puerto Rico is "La Isla Nena". The first time we went there, my wife and I fell in love with it. The second time we went there, my kids fell in love with it. This where I also caught my first bonefish. Our next trip is not soon enough for us.

Gentlemen's Game Dinner


Once a year a few of us get together to have a dinner from the game we took during the year. This year's star role was the crane one of our hunting companions took during the year. I also suppplied pheasant breasts and another person, supplied slow roasted whitetail deer. One person brought about six bottles of wine so we can taste with the meal. The meat was cooked on a grill; the crane had a rub on it and the pheasant breast were marinaded. The crane was superb and if anyone had the opportunity to hunt or eat it, I would highly reccomend it. The pheasant wasn't too shabby, either. The roasted deer was as good as expected. I brought the leftovers home and everything disappeared the first night.
