Mike Moncado, my Facebook friend, owns Bear Creek Kennels and a small business Hunt Test Organization called, Upland Gundog Association L.L.C., (Facebook) and http://uplandgundog.com/ (Website). His Bear Creek website can be seen at http://www.iowabirddogs.com/. He lives in the heart of Eastern Iowa's farmlands where he trains, guides and raises pups for hunting and companion homes.
This morning he took his son Noah on his very first pheasant hunt on the river bottom in Iowa County. With one shot...he had one kill! It was retrieved by the dog that started it all, 11-year-old girl "BEAR." She still has it! This is his very first rooster. Mike was so proud of his accomplishment.
After a 20 minute search, their 11-year-old lab, BEAR, found Noah's first rooster which was shot on public land near Marengo, Iowa. Mike said, "Way to go son! Dad's proud of you"!
A great picture of Noah with his first tail feathers in the bag!

My congrats to Noah on his first pheasant hunt today and they can't wait to go again this afternoon and all of tomorrow. Wishing you guys the best of luck!
