    Default we're done!

    The waterfowl season ends tomorrow, and trap and I are gonna stay home.
    We have had great fun and learned alot about each other.
    Today it rained all day and bird traffic was low.
    We did manage to get 2 ducks and a goose to finish traps total retrieves to 112 ducks and 39 geese.
    Thank you lee of wrl.
    He is a wonderful, smart dog.
    Today the mallard drake went down by the big tree on the other side of the white fence.

    I sent trap and few hand signals and he disappeared over the other side of the fence into the brush.
    Next thing I know here he comes with the drake.

    Next fall senior is in the bag!

    Its been fun and a great learning curve for he and I.
    I love my buddy.

    How refreshing to hear such enthusiasm and joy! Doesn't matter which game you play, if you come out of it feeling like this, you have been successful!
