Hey Krazy , thanks . Are you using lining drills for water work , just like you would on land . This really helps the dog gain confidence . Use a white pole straight across a water way at first , mark the pile and send the dog on it's name the first time , then dead bird -back . Do this over a couple of days , then without marking pile send like a blind . Next step take pole away and repeat . Then do angle and of course longer land to water / water too longer land blinds . If you can after he nails it without help , move to another pond and waterways . It's a good transition to cold blinds that worked well for me . Hope this helps .
Thanks Dan . If you are having the spring hunt test there at Mossy Pond , pretty sure I'll make it . Also I would like to really say thank you for holding back my title ribbon until you guys made sure I went swimming in that cold lake ,lol . Really was a great time . Oh , and Gumbo won't sit in the mud !Esylivin wrote:Congrats Dogyak, glad you had a good time. Adding a new seasoned titled is a great bonus. We're starting to make plans for another one in the spring hope you will be attending.
