copper's first hunt tips????

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have any tips or things for me to remember for Copper's first hunt? It has been 11 years since I hunted with a different dog than Boomer.

Thanks

If you are not alone, you may want to just handle the dog and let the others do the shooting until he appears comfortable with the whole thing. Training can break down pretty fast when the real thing starts to happen, so be patient and remember that it is his first time and anything you get out of him will be a bonus. I hope things go really well for you and good luck with the hunt.

PS - bring a leash. You may need it.

Copper and I had a great time and he did a great job. He went after every bird and found them all. he had a little trouble and was mad at us when we missed but he will figure that out.

We had soem big swan come over us low and he could not figure out when we didn't shoot. He had a major lip curl. wink.gif

The only thing that was tricky was the fact that he like dto screw around too much. The puppy in him. So I got a shock collar and he was much better.

It was a great hunt in two mornings we shot about 15 ducks and 10 geese.

Thanks to all.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
