For those who enjoy duck hunting in Georgia this is the place to discuss everything from Georgia duck hunting outfitters to hunting pintails, mallards and canvasbacks on lake Seminole.

In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.
Received this from Evan Graham today and thought it very thought provoking for those who are into the relationship of hunting with a Trained Retriever, more later.
Going Hunting without a trained retriever is like going on a honeymoon without a bride!

My browndog and I are one! Sometimes I swear he reads my mind and vice versa. Lord knows we are both a pain in the tail at times. I share mister Graham's sentintements, because to hunt a Bay dog you have to be in his head, cuz he simply ain't gonna conform to the drill and kill techniques used in normal training regimes. Not putting down any other breeds intended! As I have seen beautiful work done by all. But I do believe you have to mutate a little to really hunt with a dog, and not just have him as a step saving device!
Thanks for the thought provoking post.

This maybe the only post I'll agree with you on.
