I love love pheasant hunting. Waterfowl hunting comes in a close second.
This is a picture of Fin in Saskawhen, Canada.
He was 10 weeks old. I Did NOT have him in the field but in a crate not to far away (up there a mile is close) until after the hunt.
I threw a goose and duck out there just to see what he'd do.
I think the exposure can only help. You can see he got the fact these are his. Can't wait for this waterfowl / pheasant season. He will be ~13monthes old when early goose opens.
