Got to duck camp Sunday afternoon. Been there about 1/2 hour when a truck pulled in and guy was asking if we had seen a black lab with black collar. Been missing for 36 hours. Our camp is near a very popular and usually crowded public hunting. Dog was last seen within 200 yards of the road, many camps within 1/2 mile.
Consensus in camp is that the dog got after a cripple, raccoon, deer etc.and got disoriented.
May have made it to the road, got picked up and stolen.
May have wandered into the camps and same deal. This was the last weekend of the duck season. Just conswervation kight geese from now on, so the dog is probably gone for good.
GPS tracking collar would have solved the problem.
Several stories like this this season.
