Turned out to be one the nicest hunts I’ve had in awhile, just me and my dog and few ducks.

Went under and came up with a boot and a side of salad

:thumbsup: Days like that when the stars seem to align are few and far between. Sure is pretty out your way, think our mud holes would bore you both. :rolleyes: The beast is looking good, seems like yesterday you brought him home.

Thanks brother. It’s flying, beanhead will be 3 February 1.

The entire wolf pack. The black chunks surrounding the blanket are the pieces the puppy chewed off in the 2 minutes I walked away. :no:
The lil gal is coming along nicely. Have been working on reinforcing sit and started using the whistle, started traffic cop, been having her wear the collar, but haven't turned it on yet. Introduced her to live pigeons last week. She'll chase bumpers down with gusto, but needs some work on 'here.' Really been a lot of fun thus far.

I must have a poor memory because I'd forgotten all about those razor sharp puppy teeth and claws! Puppy growth is quite amazing. Doubling body weight in a 4-week period is impressive. I'm anxious to see what her weight is at 16 weeks as some of you fellas have said that 16 week weight X2 has been a fairly accurate estimation of adult body weight.

Archer and I had a fun trip to Nebraska for a day of pheasant and waterfowl hunting. The pheasant hunt went well and Archer is picking up the upland hunting quickly. It was awesome to see him figure it out a little more each walk. By the end he was covering ground and working the wind like a seasoned pheasant hunter. Our group was able to get 37 birds despite a really strong wind making for some very sporting shots. Unfortunately, the waterfowl hunting didn't go nearly as well. Woke up to a blue bird day with almost no wind. Plenty of birds in the area but they wanted nothing to do with us. On the bright side, heated pit blinds are amazing and it was still better than sitting in Texas not seeing many birds anyway. The guides were great and Duck Haven Outfitters is a great operation. Never felt like they weren't working as hard as they could to get us on birds. Already looking forward to hunting with them again next season.

That’s a cool pic, doc. Sometimes I miss the puppy days and some I don’t. Sounds like you’re on the ball with the little terror.
When you’re sitting in your boat and she’s out in the muck fetching that bird, it’s all worth it.

She's been a good little pupil so far. Maybe it's because I've become accustomed to having an old, fat slow dog, but the term 'high-energy' isn't a strong enough statement for this lil gal. :eek:
Looking forward to next season!
