I'm green with envy...nice work Oscar!!! Great pictures!

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

I am using this thread as a photo diary for our hunting trips, so prefer to keep it in one place

Dec 30, 2012 - Last hunt of the year!

The place we went has tidal waters and the tide was really high this morning. I was waist height in the water in my waders and had the hard time to find anything for Oscar to stand on. Finally found the floating log that;s big enough to fit him, but it was a challenge as log was turning with any dog's movement and he's falling from it, but Oscar quickly figured out if he's stay still, he will be out of the freezing water. I shot few ducks and Oscar swum out and brought them back in a professional manner. There were long retrieves, at least 80 yards and after three long swims he started shivering and barely could catch his breath, so back on a rolling log to keep him out of the water.
When sun raised couple swans landed about 300 yards from us, they were absolutely gorgeous!


And here is the picture when water fallen about 2 feet and the log finally touched the ground and stopped rolling.


Oscar is getting better and better with every hunt. What a great hunting companion I have! I couldn't be happier with my dog and speaking of the happiness - Happy New Year everyone!

Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend.

Today was the last day for hunting geese, so we went out to get a chance.
There weren't many birds in the sky, but we managed to get one teal and a nice Canadian goose pictured below:
