    Default 1st duck hunt w/new pup!!!

    Had my first duck hunt with my 10 month BLM on monday and all went very well. I kinda figured it would but you just never know. The only thing I was worried about was getting him to watch the sky but it didnt take long and he was looking up. Put a couple thousand ducks in his face and he's going to look at them. All birds that fell he retrieved most between 30-40 yards in front of us. One sailed on me about 200 yards and we walked about 100 yards and I saw it laying dead. Lined him up and ran a 100 yard blind got it with no whistle stop or redirection. Lets just say I'm a HAPPY DAD we've been working since Feburary and now I know that's its coming togeather!!!!

    Just wanted to share only got these pics cause the batteries I put in my camera were dead Dont know why I had dead batteries in the charger!!!!!

    That's what it's all about in my book! Don't you just love it when a plan comes together(plus all the hard work in training!)? Congrats!

    Yeah at 10 1/2 months we're weighing between 77-81 lbs (depends on the scale) I wanted a big framed dog his dad was in the low 90's. Titan still has alot of growing room too skin and bones except for his legs.
