Deer sausage should be a requirement to enter a test.
I think Drake and Zach had a great weekend, but Zach out ate him!
See you at North Alabama's AKC test in 2 weeks.
Fixed the date on the title for you

Training is not science, it is art. A blend of this, a measure of that, a deep breath at the appropriate moment and always a loving touch.
Looks like we will be working on holding blinds, waiting your turn and walking to the bucket. Maybe a pheasant flyer walkup as a 2cd series if I can get some birds. No off it & run a blind. Then another single before they are allowed to pick up the flyer. Would love to train with the North Alabama crew but am trying hard to keep Mama happy

We used to hunt the river and would always be buzzed by hooded mergansers. Ocassionally someone would shoot one either on purpose or by mistake. The group always wanted to know "Who shot the fishduck?". Of course the guilty party would eventually have to reload and admit to his sin. The excuse was always "I shot it for the dog". Seemed like a good enough handle for me and I stuck with it . Put my real name in my signature to keep the janitor happy
I just hope I still have a bed at the white house!!
