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.

Let him have fun and don't expect perfection.

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.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
