Day 4...A Blast From The Past

Travis Frank

The winter storm and work obligations today kept me from sneaking out during daylight hours to get my shot.  I'm not about to let the day slip past without a picture, so I wanted to introduce you to a new hunting companion from this past fall.  On our trip to North Dakota we experienced many incredible hunts, adventures and laughs.  This is nothing new if you know my hunting crew and I.  While on our hunts I like to capture everything that is happening around us, the act of hunting isn't always first on the agenda.  Meet Bella, she's a young lab on her first North Dakota hunt.  There is just something about watching a dog react to the sky when it is teaming with ducks.  Bella wasn't always sure what was going on while we were hunting, and many times she just took it all in.  Isn't that a dogs life anyway?  This was my favorite shot from NoDak this year.  The colors of the brown on brown just seemed to jump.  I hope you enjoy it too!
