Season Opener Caption Contest

What's your caption for this photo from the 2013 Minnesota pheasant hunting opener?

What’s your caption for this photo from the 2013 Minnesota pheasant hunting opener?

Like many Pheasants Forever members, I celebrated the 2013 pheasant season by hunting a newly re-opened Waterfowl Production Area in central Minnesota on Saturday.  My group of five hunters and six dogs were lucky enough to bag nine roosters on the opener; including the pair I’m displaying at the end of the day’s “golden hour” in the photo above.

As you can see in the picture, my shorthair’s eyes are aglow in the fading daylight, so I thought it’d make for a fun caption contest.  And to coax participation, I’ll be awarding my favorite three captions with a a four-pack of dog supplements courtesy of SportDOG brand.  So have at it, post your creative photo caption in the comments section below.  I’ll pick a winner this Friday, Oct. 18, 2013.

The Pointer is written by Bob St.Pierre, Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever’s Vice President of Marketing.  Follow Bob on Twitter @BobStPierre and listen to Bob and Billy Hildebrand every Saturday morning on FAN Outdoors radio on KFAN FM100.3.

    The shorthaired laser pointers were introduced in 2013 when a furloughed government employee accidentally inserted the glowing jellyfish gene into the GSP’s genome rather than the one meant to “strike fear into the heart of every politician”.

  32. Robbie Byrne says:

    As dusk the Shorthairs eyes became aglow
    Why this was happening, his dad did not know
    But in situations like this one does not ask questions
    As like superman, this dog was obviously born with x-ray vision
    Gazing on at the band of birds walking stealthily behind the cameraman
    As this photo was taken
    Watching what his hunting buddies are obviously missing
    In his own way saying “look behind you, you idiots!”

    Trammel St. Pierre, pointer. A dog barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic dog. Trammel will BE that dog. Better than he was before. Better… stroger… faster.
