    Cass, I'm sure you've seen a hit bird carry itself a long way before dropping. I had multiple geese go down at 200-300 yards this year. I sure was glad I didn't have to walk out to get 'em.

    Fromms was really great for puppy. Really wish they made a performance blend. I switched to Nutrisource Performance, and Super Performance for hunting season. No complaints.

    Teaching a dog to carry a goose

    Is it possible? And how to?

    I spoke with an older gentleman once and he told me he taught his lab how how to carry a goose properly. Was he pulling my leg or can it be done?

    Thanks,
