    Went back and fixed it. Good hunting. Be careful. As I said, I mostly hunt alone.

I don't care how long someone has been hunting doves, but I don't even let my dad talk to me that way.
    I mostly agree with you, but sometimes you have to listen to what's being said and not how. I've trained with a couple folks who really knew their stuff when it came to dog training, but they have forgotten that at one time they didn't know a dang thing about it either. And they are somewhat flabbergasted that any reasonably intelligent human being would NOT know what they know.

    No one mentioned this but take a bottle of rubbing alcohol with you (or a couple). If he gets too hot, poor it on his belly and chest. It evaporates faster than water and will cool him off quicker. Be careful, whatever you do.

    Well guys I made the decsion to take the dog with me and it was a good one, Temps stayed in the mid 80's and we killed a four man limit. Not once this my dog show signs of getting over heated. I kept a water buck right next to me. He retrieved 70 percent of the birds and even retrieved his first double and blind. Everyone was really impressed, and I couldnt be any happier. Man it feels awsome to see the hard work pay off, I am one happy fella!!!

    Glad it all worked out. It makes a man proud when his dog shows off his training in front of his hunting partners. You cant buy that feeling !

    Sounds like a blast and a great way to start off. A couple more hunts like that and the pup will be recognizing dove in flight as far away as you do.
