Going Bird Hunting

Postby Dave » Fri Sep 19, 2008 4:19 pm

I spent today with Hooch at a training kennel where he's getting some professional training and me too . I know how to use/ work an already trained dog , but am a dedicated Bowhunter .

I leaned some terminology and helped work Hooch . He had a switch turned on and I will probably work to finish him and train Levi also . I was invited to hunt with Eric tommorow over two field champion dogs Huckleberry and Jammer . These dogs have me in awe . I have to borrow a shotgun as I only own rifles and bows . :roll:

I owned a rescued Hunting dog "Amber" and hunted with her till she couldn't anymore . When she retired from Bird hunting so did I . I took up being a State coordinator for ABR . If I get the fever , I might even field trial .

Oh well it's fun to dream . I get to see poetry in motion . Let's hope I can shoot staight . I'll take pictures . :P Dave

Sounds like you have some fun times set up for you both. How's the bowhunting going this year :?: We still have two weeks to go before it starts here.

The bowhunting has been awsome :) . I haven't drawn my bow yet , but had 15 deer feeding around me tonight before dark .

There was 6 bucks and 4 were shooters . They were over 100 yards most of the time though . The Rancher was hauling and stacking hay. He kept driving by with his hay wagon . The last time two of the biggest bucks decided to trot right at me :shock: . I stood up and waited ready to draw . I hoped they would get right out in front of me , stop to look at him then I would drill one . Nope they trotted right under my stand not 10 feet away from the base of the tree I was in :? . Darn it was exciting :P .

Now I'm going to hide out where I've watched them jump the fence to enter the field . Then they will come out by my stand :roll: :lol: . I'm having fun . :P Dave

Sounds like a lot of fun. Are you hunting whitetails or muleys?
In about five weeks I heading to CO. for mule deer and maybe elk depending if they are anywhere near the ranch I'll be at. I can't wait.

My bow has gotten dusty since I got back into hunting dogs ten years ago, too bad the seasons are concurrent and not nearly long enough.

Good luck and yes we will need to see some pictures 8) .
