    Add three more retrieves to Dixie's total! I killed 2 woodie drakes and 1 hooded merganser this morning.

    I needed this hunt really bad today!

    Our season opened back up on Saturday. Me and a buddy went. We got a mallard, a coot and two limits of bluebills. Dixie made 5 blind retrieves for the day. We had an awesome day on the river and we're getting back at em tomorrow.

    Maybe this time I will remember to put a lighter in the boat so we can cook breakfast...DOH!

    This is Niko's ( 1 Y/O BLF ) first season and she is closing in on the 200 bird mark. She has been flat amazing.

    Opening day......bad pic, it was raining. Her first "hunting retrieve" was a double of drake pintail that I dropped.



    Day two. Got her first shot at some geese. Found 3 birds that we'd lost for sure without her in some nasty grass that day.



    Opening Wen's. Got together with fellow RTF'r 7pintail for a hunt. We had a great time and Niko got to do her thing some more.



    Here's a 3 man limit we took on my birthday. She made a 150+ yard blind on a pintial that sailed and fell dead in some open water. That was a proud moment.



    Another good one. Got to watch her bring me my 1st drake Redhead.




    I could go on and on. Needless to say I am very proud and can't wait for every chance I get to spend with her in the field. She really loves hunting out of the boat. It's something to see to watch her get some serious air off the bow when she's sent. There's no denying her love for what she does.

    I notice you harvest quite a few spoonies. Are they good eating out there? I used to put them in our bag until after getting several clunkers last year. They didn't seem to be feeding in the grain fields like they did in the past...preferring too much pond scum, and it really made them taste bad.

    That was an awful large sprig in the 2nd to last pic. We never get them to full maturity during the fall hunt around here. I know the west coast...Pacific Flyway...has by far the largest migration of pins in the country. We see beau coups of them in full plumage during the spring migration. Have always wanted to get one for mounting...they are a beautiful bird.

    Continued success. Your lab is having the time of her life, which only amplifies your fun.

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    I tend to try and hold off of shooting the spoonies early in the year because they don't taste all that great. Late season after they have been in the rice for a while they are'nt bad. They mostly get ground into pepperoni. But this being the pup's first season I am shooting as many birds as possible to get her working.

    We do get a good ammount of Pin's here. I am fortunate to take several big bulls every year.
