First bird hunt with Mov’alon Rouge

First bird hunt with the new Ford Ranger pickup, nicknamed Mov’alon Rouge. Abbey expresses her displeasure with taking photos rather than getting to the business of pheasant hunting. The first snowstorm of the winter of 2021-22 is descending on the North Country today, so our first bird hunt was more symbolic than real, but Rouge provided good service for the morning and I am liking this pickup. Abbey, however, was ambivalent about riding in the back seat of the crew cab rather than her usual perch in The Catbird Seat. We will have to see how that works out. Looking forward to many years of hunts with Rouge.

    When I looked at the photo, I mistook your gun leaning against the grill as a tow strap and thought this post was going in another direction! Good to hear you are pleased.
