Whats your longest retreive?

Thought we could share some quick stories as the season comes to the end. I had a fairly long retrieve this past Saturday at just over a half a mile. The bird was belly up by the time we got to it.

Closing weekend I had a goose that just wouldn't die and I I didn't have my dog that day. Paddled the boat down creek about a mile chasing him. Had a hole in his head too. When I'm alone I have a point that I won't go past. I got to that spot, covered in sweat. Turned around and fought the current to head back to the blind. Unfortunately I never got
Him. Sad to say.

I have been there. It makes me sick thinking about it.
The bird that I am thinking was a 11 pound bird. It was hit pretty hard in the back third and sailed 200 yards and dropped on the other side of a river. We dropped everything and paddled.

Had one recoverd over a mile. Shot the goose and watched it fly then sail all the way to the other end of the farm. Farm is 1.6 miles long. On the way out we saw it laying by the road , stopped and picked it up. :)
