    Default First official retrieve

    I've had a blast training my first duck dog. And its great seeing it all come togeather in the blind. She even swam 50+yards for a crippled on the 2nd shot bird. Its the most fun I've had hunting for sure. So just wanted to say thanks to you knowledged sharing fellas and ladys. Searching through posts on here and the dog forum on DHC I found most answers I had following my program. Planning on running some tests in the spring and add some titles. Work didn't permit any this fall as I had planned. The pic of her holding the drake in the boat was her first retrieve. Whats a story without pictures??

    That is great! I like to see the hunting pics. Are your hunting buddies from "Dog Killer Ridge"?
