Barb, will you and your hunt-in dog be bringing home the Christmas Goose this year?

The very tall, very heavy cover is what freaked me out. Once he was literally 10 feet from me, I couldn't see him. Heck, I couldn't even see over the cover myself.

You know, just talking to Tito when he is in heavy cover will let him know exactly where you are. Talking without giving a here command just to give him info as to where you are. You also will not feel like he is blowing off a here command. After all, you don't know what is holding him up.

I stood in one place and just blew his come-in whistle several times. I figured if I moved, he might get disoriented. Better for me to be where he last saw me.
But when he exited stage left, he had all the afterburners on heading after a pheasant that didn't get shot. Since I couldn't see him, I have no idea how far he got before he turned back. He came back from a totally different direction than that in which we last saw him headed!
Dan asked me what I had the e-collar set on. I said....oh....collar....I forgot to use the collar.....(which Tito did have on, and it was turned on!). But then Dan said that once the bird was up and Tito was gone, I should NOT use the collar. Tito might have already been heading back in, and would have no clue why he was being nicked. I should only use it initially with a sit whistle and a light nick to get his attention off the bird and back onto us, not after he has taken off on the golden retriever 100 yard dash!

My opinion---I wouldn't use the collar unless the dog were in view anyway. Again, you don't really know what's going on.

You will be more at ease with the next hunt, maybe even fire a shot followed up with cussing if you miss.

Now there's a thought....teach Tito that, whenever he hears a cuss word, he needs to come on back, it means the shot missed .

Are you sure he won't "SIT"?

We will be working Continental Style Shoots at the shooting preserve this Thursday and Friday. I hope my son can come with me on Thursday and work Buffy a bit. I expect Buffy to get 80 to 100 retrieves in two days. That might make her mellow for the weekend.

If I am free I also plan to also hunt this week. I just love getting out there.

We went training w/ one of our group buddies a couple weekends ago, we did some walking singles and pattern blinds, then some close up singles where if somebody creeps, I go pick up the bumper.

It's dark before and after work now, so only training on weekends. This weekend I was sick :-(

We have 4 weeks left of field class where we've been working on lining and casting drills. I didn't do any homework this week :-(

We only went hunting once - Gladys put up 2 birds - I missed the first one and was tying my shoe for the 2nd one :-(
I really need to practice shooting.
Stocking ends in 2 days. I can't believe the season went by so quickly :-(
(Addendum: I found a Rod and Gun club that has trap shooting Sunday am to 3pm, website says if you're a new shooter don't be shy to ask for help .. sounds like fun Sunday projects)

Looking forward to next year :-)
It's been exciting to follow each others' progress.
