Spring says that he began hunting pheasants in the early '90s, roughly fifteen years after the bulk of the wild ringnecks disappeared--just about the time most of the die-hard pheasant hunters around had given up altogether. The ringnecks he does find are wild and raucous and smart. So why, if these pheasants are so hard to come by and even harder to kill, does Spring deliberately take the last weeks in October and the first weeks in November year after year, expending precious vacation time and yet knowing he will end each week frustrated and tired without any guarantee of a single bird making its way to his freezer? Spring tells us that if you've ever seen an exhausted dog drop a giant rooster at your feet, you'll understand. Spring's prose and his talent for evocative descriptive phrases actually pull you along with him and his dogs on those glorious fall days in pursuit of the regal pheasant.
