Les Gibiers

Yesterday Jazzy and I went for a walk with Joseph and Leo (our neighbor and his ancient German Shepherd) in the vineyards that were completely blanketed in snow. Suddenly, Joseph stopped and excitedly pointed out a flock of birds hidden in the vines. He said he wished he could go hunting which is allowed on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays in season. I asked why he couldn't if we were in full season and he said that it is strictly forbidden as it makes the hunt unfair to the wildlife as they are unable to escape or hide as well and gives too much advantage to the hunters.
