    Default First pheasant hunt for Moose

    Its been 17 years since i've had a bird dog and boy have i missed it! Here is Moose on opening weekend here in Idaho with his first pheasant. Moose will be 13 months this week. Once the 8 birds flushed, Moose sat down and waited for the command to fetch. The bird wasn't totally dead and was on its back flailing and kicking....Moose was reluctant to grab it lol. I'm very happy with his work and after that first retrieve a light seemed to have clicked on in his thick head and he hunts with more vigor now.. like he knows what he's smelling for now.

    thanks for looking.
