What could be better than a duck for dinner? - Two ducks!

Today was a perfect day for duck hunting, after many days of the heavy rain we finally had a blue sky in a morning, so got our limit in two hours. We brought home 6 mallards and 2 teals. Oscar is very proud of himself, he retrieved his first cripple this morning. At first he circled couple times around the flipping duck, but than managed to grab him and successfully brought to shore. Yay!!!

Some USA hunters expressed their concerns about dusking, but in Canada it's lawfull to hunt migratory game birds from 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset.

Discoverer, great job for you and Oscar. Pleases ignore those who want to diss your success. You played by the rules where you hunt. Those who do not know the rules in Canada should just worry about where they will shoot their next limit.
I know about hunting in Canada after visits over the last twenty five years. The last in Saskatchewan last month. You have the best hunting bird hunting in the world.
Congratulations on your hunts with your dog, dogs do make hunts that you always remember!!
Jim

I'm actually envious of your regs. Probably the concerned USA hunter had the idea it might be legal in Canada.

It starts getting cooler here and already frost on the grass in the morning. Hopefully we'll see more ducks soon. Yesterday's hunt wasn't bad, we managed to bag 6 ducks, 3 of them are big fat mallard drakes. Oscar did a great job retrieving them all. 2 cripples dropped into high grass and he found them both. Nicely done!



More of Oscar's pictures from that day available in the thread (Oscar's life in pictures)

We went with a friend this morning and limited out in less than 2 hours. Oscar did a great job retrieving them all, however couple times he broke the sit right after the shot and took off on his own before I sent him. He was too excited to go after the dropped duck, so I didn't correct him. Next time I will restrain him to make sure he doesn't develop the bad habit.
