Dublins first hunting retrieve. I staked/leashed him, which eliminated the shot show that was last week. I couldn’t keep him in a 50’ circle last week. I doubled on the first group but one submarined away in the early light. Dubs brought this one to shore and then just played with it. But we’re on the board. Should have had at least 5 today.
At what I thought was a slow point in the hunt, I decided to run a drill with the goose. Set it out 20’, heeled the dog, sent him. He grabbed and started violently shaking it amongst the decoys just as a 3 pack was coming in hot. I laughed about it. It would have been great to have on video. Back at the shop we did drills, fetch and hold.
