a good day

Postby harvey1b » Tue Dec 06, 2005 2:31 pm

I took my dog out goose hunting over the weekend and it went really well. We had a flock of ~12 fly right by. She was steady while 3 of us unloaded our guns on 'em. When I released her she started the round up with a 40 yd water retrieve on a wounded bird. She ended up making 4 retreives all large birds (11+ pounds). This was her second goose hunt, first around water. I wasn't sure how she would do but was pretty proud and just wanted to share.

Nice to hear about a dog doing that well. Sounds like a great dog.

I live in NY as well right down the NY State T-way. We have done well on geese this year too.
