Training the Mutt

Postby rjbadfish » Wed Aug 10, 2011 11:05 am

The season is just around the corner. I started working with Ice from the boat and also started with some decoys and other distractions. I was very pleased with his response. He showed no interest in the decoys at all.
He did some long blinds today and is getting better at doubles each time out.
coming along well for 7 months.

I hope no one minds if the proud papa shares some baby pics:

Nothing wrong with bragging about the kids-I do it alot :thumbsup: Pup is looking good. All you need to do is set him down in front of the new hunting video, and he will be good to go :wink: If he needs some pointers-send him Belles way.

Yes it is a mature Drake Bluewing teal. I planned on mounting it but it had been pretty well shot up.
I do freeze other birds as well
