I got a invite from my son-in -law to hunt down Fresno way Sunday afternoon , it was a old Fig grove and the birds wanted it.
We shot limits with his GSP retrieving so , it was great . My BLF ,has done well this year too ,but early opening morning she
had a hardtime finding the first bird shot . This bird hit the ground out 45 yds in 14 to 16" weeds , she marked it fine and I
casted her on the line , she went to the area hunted around but , found no bird . I called her back . Then , 3 birds came , my
son killed the first bird and broke the wing on the second , she marked it and as she got to it ,it flapped away as she grabbed it.
Sent her back for # 2 bird , no problem there ,used her nose and went right to it . After retrieving those 2 , I lined her up on
the # 1 birds again , gave her a back command , she went short of the fall so I stopped her and gave her a back again , as she
ran down wind of the bird , she got a nose full , spun around , picked it up with no problem . I guess at first light , she didn't
know what she was after but , now she does !
