And that's it for even halfway decent working dog shots from this past season. Going to have to start recycling from 2007-2008 (farthest back on-hand files go) toward present next Monday. And try to think of the camera more often next fall.

Not a chessie guy, but that damn coyote sure was a photogenic beast.

That's the bug and one of his "good sides".

Head on, he's dippy looking no matter what you dress him up with:

Now, the coyote, he was photogenic from any angle:

Thanks brother, we both know the Choco's are the best looking. :grooving:

Hard to ever pick a "favorite" shot but for me this is up there. There was a long story on this but the short one is the Rooster he's after here gave him quite the hunt.

My apologies. Honestly, they’re both nice looking pups

Well, fudge: let another Monday get by. Being fresh out of this past season's working shots and having to recycle, I believe I'll start with Peake, aka: the coyote's, very first working retrieve:

(In the "Don't try this at home." column: the seven-month-old worked for nine guest guns who shot 36 blue-wings that afternoon. One controlled break.)

I'm sure you anticipated the break. Gotta know...at what point in those 36 birds was it?

Peake was my third steadied-from-the-git-go pup that had played our sit-to-flight game with dozens of homers tossed at his face, so he made it longer than you might think. We were in the middle of a firing line of guys spread down a levee, and I'm guessing that one of the end guys chipped a fast passer that skipped in crippled right in front of us. Peake made it into the water before I got him stopped, but returned to heel when bid before being sent.

In my defense, I'd hunted a big, gator rich marsh pond, shot my day's allotment and retrieved by boat that morning, and had asked the big cheese for a small afternoon rice field party to start the pup on. Ended up, instead, with a big group he wanted to impress after they'd scratched with another outfit that opening morning. (This past, COVID, teal opener was the first they haven't returned for since.) But my primary focus was the pup.

And in the interest of full disclosure, I took six guys (from a different crew) on this past teal opener's afternoon and made the mistake of letting my current veteran paragon, Marsh, get loose and then go "to save time" when they chipped multiple long fly-off crips and paid for it with a hot, breaking mess until physically restraining him with a lead we'd not taken out of my shell box/seat in...well, forever. S'posed to be for sorry guest dogs. Got him squared back around, but holy, moly did years of good manners unravel fast.

Funny how the mind works - or doesn't. Was out working Marsh in driving water when it came to me that I'd written that and left poor Blue, who cancer took two months shy of his second birthday, out of that count. Peake was actually my fourth such pup.

I gotta admit though, I made more money on the Yellow than I did the Chocolate. :grooving:

My picture is one of those "instagram vs reality" type photos. As I recall it was snapped right after she stopped barking at me for holding a bumper and right at the moment she broke 'sit' before I told her to do so. Trying to take a good photo without the e-collar is a biaaatch.

Something most will never see in the field actually hunting, including me.

Have seen a very few at hunt tests and expect to live out my life without seeing one hunt.

What's even harder, even at tests, is seeing one wet.
