Been a few weeks. I wish I could say I hunted a lot but I only got a few days in before the closer on Sunday. It’s always bittersweet. Given how most people are bitching about how poor this year was, I think I came out in pretty good shape – and for that I feel lucky.
I also was lucky to start a young dog that is showing a lot of promise. It’s amazing what a well bred dog will do naturally if you don’t force it. Great nose, great instincts, she stays in front and stays put on point till the shots ring out. She needs some check cord training to stay put after a shot, but other than that I can’t complain.
Hopefully the spring will be kind and we won’t get a freakish dump during the hatch like last year.
I’ll be slowing my posts till the fall, but I’ll try and keep it fresh.
Thanks for reading so far, blogs only a couple months old and has a few thousand hits.
Till the leaves come back and turn again,
