No all ducks are already dead. The only live birds that are actually shot are in the field test hunts with the pointers which they use chuckers. 75% continued to leave from what I saw, its a good thing the guys were not marked for missing :mrgreen:
Most cases the ducks are launched and shot at (pretend) with blanks for the dog. And some blind retrieves have people set the birds out for the dogs to find.
Everyone must believe in something and I believe I'll go hunting. When men bond something must die.
