    Default Dukes first retrieve!!!

    Well not the way I wanted to happen, but I will take it as it comes. Flushed a couple birds from a small puddle of water.
    Duke couldnt see the birds due to the high growth of grass and bushes.... Once the bird was down I pointed to the bird and he did he job. YES he did drop the bird on the bank, but thats ok. The was no real bank there(muskage) water was deep....
    But overall I'm tickled on how he did!!!!

    good job with your pup Gray, how old is he now. And good job shooting the bird, really difficult to teach fetch when you miss all the time like I do. Bud

    Man, I don't know how you did it. Shoot a duck, handle a dog, and got it all on tape. I've been hunting over labs since about 76, had my own labs since 78, and I don't think I have any video of them hunting. I still get too darn excited and focused on them while they work. I guess I need to take somebody to be the videographer. Fun to see a young dog starting out, I love these posts. Thanks for sharing,

    Duke is very good in stayin next to me.
    We were trying to leave when we came across this small puddle full of ducks...
    After the duck was shot. I had time to get my phone out and film.
    I had to point the duck to duck. Once he saw it . He did what he learned.

    I did keep repeating hold, cause he just learned that few weeks ago and I wanted to be sure/re enforce it to him.
