Default For love of the hunt.

Team Sampson continued our pre-season training with a game against Team Pheasant. With a little sadness we started our hunt today without one of our veterans. Jay’s English Springer, Piper, graciously gave way to Jay’s rookie a German Shorthair named Yogi (right). Our yellow lab, Great Bay Babe, in her second season played our backfield. Our returning veteran was Cory’s German Shorthair, Rose (left). The cool weather at the start of the game was in our favor. We squeaked out a win this year with two bonus chukka partridge. The final score was Team Sampson 8 and Team Pheasant 6. The most valuable player award again this year went to our returning veteran, Rose.



Great Bay Babe brought the bounties from her namesake to today’s game. After the hunt we had a tailgate feast.

Our cook, Jay.



We started with fresh clams and oysters.



After the appetizer we ate all the birds we won from Team Pheasant.



We finished off the feast with some Great Bay Bugs.



It is time now for the regular season. The Coalman and Bay are playing away against Team Grouse on October 1.

Thank you Rose and Yogi for helping Bay see the light.
