Too early to get back in the woods with the dog?
Read on another forum some guys are getting their dogs back in the woods on grouse. I have some great grouse areas right in my back yard. The guys on the other forum are saying that the grouse and wood cock chicks are of flying age as of now.
I was wondering what you all think of this? I was under the assumption that it would be better to wait until the fall to get the dog back out in the grouse woods.
Would it be a bad idea to get my dog back in the woods now? If I do take her back out in the woods, is it bad to hit up the areas I plan to hunt in the fall?
I am of course watching the temperatures most of all as my lab is on the bigger side, and I would not want to risk her overheating or anything like that. What are other things that would make getting you dog out now a bad thing? Again, my idea is to just hold off, but just wanted to get your oppionions on this.
