The dog beat us again!!

So I had another successful day. So far this season, I have "bagged" 4 birds this year without ever firing a shot. My dad shot one today. Jake went 3 for 4 today. Not bad for a 12 year old Pointer.

Picture from tonight.

Even the pumpkims look happy! Does the dog catch them for you? Just curious, we are just getting started and I'm fascinated by how people use dogs for hunting.

He points before the flush. If the bird flys straight up and not run, he catches it. Two of the birds last night were already wounded and couldn't fly, he just ran them down.

Re: The dog beat us again!!

While I'd like to brag about my awesome shooting, the fact is that my dogs have run down 3 pheasants this season. Two were presumably shot in the wing by other hunters. The other was shot by my friend and it was flying but not well as my GSP/whippet mix grabbed it.

So far my dogs have 3 and I have 2. Just like how my season total of woodchucks was 5, beaten by the GSP/whippet's 6. Fast little bugger.
