Post Hunt Recovery

More: Doug is my best friend and he came into my life right after I came back from deployment from the Middle East (Active Duty USMC). He's my first gundog and has really helped me get through some very difficult times in life. This photo was taken right after we finished our last of the 2019 season. It was out first hunting season together and we attained our limit of California Quail this day. I let him spent as long as he wanted cooling off in this mountain stream, while he was relaxing I was taking it all in, because I knew there would never again be another day like that.
