My 8 month old Brittish Lab on point. The tail feathers were there but the camera was slow, I also missed the bird as I had to first stow the camera.
I have not been working hard on pointing as we do not have many of those fancy birds around hear, but she is doing good on water retreving. Roasted Green-Head comes to mind.
You had to do what? Stow the camera?! Are you training or hunting? j/k
Reminds me a little of when we were kids, and a guy we knew got a beautiful new O/U for his birthday. We invited him to bring it out hunting with us. We knew where there were some pheasants. He shows up, fills his pockets with shotgun shells, and as we’re heading for the field he picks up the box with the unassembled shotgun in it and proceeded to walk out with us! We asked what the heck he was doing. He didn’t want to get the gun all scratched up and dirty, so he figured he’d carry it in the box!
She’s a real beauty and looks like she’ll become a fine hunter. Congrats!
It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
