I finally got Molly out to the local hunting preserve yesterday. (She’s been out in the field, but not with good opportunities for birds). She loved it, and was a champ. She found all six of the birds we put out, bagged and retrieved three (one flush out of range, one flush behind a tree so I couldn’t shoot, and one I just plain missed). It was a good start…she clearly has the instinct and the drive, and stayed pretty close most of the time. The big gun didn’t bother her a bit …in fact, when a hunting party in another field let loose a volley, she went crazy looking for a fallen bird. She loved it! And didn’t even mind the bath and picking out burrs afterward. Rosemary came along and took the pictures, and really liked how mellow (i.e. tired) Molly was the rest of the day.
Hope your trip to South Dakota was good…
