Man it sucks not being in Montana during hunting season. I was there for a couple of days and got to hunt over my one year old. She brought in a couple of limits and her first band. Everywhere I took this dog she was running around finding other peoples dead ducks and a pigeon. Birdiest dog I've ever seen and high but containable energy. Mega props to my trainer Butch Higgins of Parkdale Kennels in Rainier OR. He made my dog a machine.
I also took my 11 YO out one day.She's dying of cancer and probably doesn't have too many more hunts left in her. She ran down roosters like she was 5 and brought a tear to my eye over all the good times we've had together.
