twenty five inches. Biggest I've got I think. We worked a swale and nothing was in it. About 50 yards further was an old irrigation ditch. We came up the ditch and the dog pointed two hens. She went about 20' further and pointed again. It was that rooster. Surprised the heck out of me that he didn't flush with the two hens.


25 inches - that's fantastic! I am stuck on 24" and man...those inches sure get hard to come by after that. :rolleyes:

Glad YOU were paying attention in a similar situation with the hens. :yes: :thumbsup:

When isn't the wind blowing in Montana? :lol:

Is that a Draht or Wirehair?

These lab owners better watch out; gettin' to be a lot of these "brillo pads" on this forum. Must be catching.

Nice lookin' pooch. I always figured you had to hunt those sharpies while riding man o' war and carrying a 30.06. My usual view of them is a flock of 80 flushing at 300 yards.

Good job.

Seems to always be blowing when I'm there but I thought it might just be me. I figured as soon as I left it would stop :no: Makes the upland hunting a little challenging. He's a GWP.

Nice lookin' pooch.

A). I wouldn't want to be in between that dog and whatever bumper or duck it's going after. I have a feeling it would bowl over anything in it's path both going and coming back. The look on its face says it all. Intense.
B). Where can I find Max-4 flip flops? (sorry, couldn't help myself)

Here's a pic of my first dog Tyler about an hour after sun-up in "da wood duck hole", although I shot 3 gadwalls that day(hanging in the picture).. a triple no less.

Bourbon with a banded mottled duck. We shot 8 mottled ducks that day in a place we call the "hell hole"... it's a 300 yrd. walk through gumbo mud up to yo crotch. but the birds are usually there b/c no one messes with 'em.

Hunting has taken on a whole new meaning for me this year. I have my first dog and my oldest boy is starting to hunt with me (and LOVING it!).

I was kidding right up until you mentioned they had built in bottle openers. Now I'm definately going to have to get a pair.

they make them with built in flasks too!!!! Don't hold much more than a good shot per shoe but still it could be handy to sneak something in someplace!!!
