Live Bird Retrieve

Recommended Posts

LuciandTim

It's kinda weird....my dog retrieves anything, except live birds. In the past couple days I dropped a couple roosters that didn't die. The dog grabbed the bird and put her mouth on it but just stayed like that. It was sort of like she pinned the bird down and didn't know what to do. She doesn't bite the bird hard enough to puncture it but just mouths it. I'm not worried. She is just a puppy and is probably a little weirded out by this. Thought it was kinda strange though. We didn't loose the birds, I just have to walk over and grab it and ring its neck. Hope she grows out of this.

Tim will Luci retrieve a dead bird? If so I dont think you have anything to worry about. She will get used to live, moving birds with age.

Tim if I remember right your Lucy is about a year old, and has not had any profetional training.

It really isn't uncommon even for experianced dogs to not retreive a squrming, fiesty bird.

I think it is as BDR said ,it will just take some time for her to mature and get used to the live bird.

She might have been spured and is shy of the bird now, seen this happen to a Brittny once.It took a couple of outings to get the Britt back on retrieving after that.

Lot's of bird action will get her going, just keep at it.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
