Went out tis afternoon and Finn my 5 1/2 mo DD got his first bird. He pointed at it once and when I flushed it it took the exact right escape. Couldn't shoot through all the trees. I saw where he flew over a pond and we walked around and Finn locked up on him again.
This time I had a clean shot and dropped him about 25-30 feet into the pond.
Finn's first retrieve was in water to boot.
