Archival Field Trip – Eastern OR

I got to spend a few great days out in eastern Oregon with a longtime friend of Archival. While we didn’t have the most productive hunt, we chose to see it as a scouting trip. After a cold, slow day outside of Hermiston, we went down to the Deschutes and hiked around looking for grouse and chukar. I managed to get a rabbit, and lost a mallard drake to the fast river (bad karma).

A cold morning on Cold Spring Reservoir.

Got into more fruitful duck land a few days later with friend Will. That’s not all my bag, I only got two!
Hopefully I’ll continue the hunting streak back on the East Coast with the William Brown Project.

    Two wood ducks, a green winged teal and something else. Larger duck like a mallard?
