Bella's End of Season
« on: January 29, 2017, 09:04:52 PM »
We hunted hard and produced some solid birds for a Snohomish county end of season hunt.  Below you'll see a picture of Bella.  She was patiently waiting for us to drop some more birds.  She made a couple dandy retrieves.  One on a diving wigeon she just wouldn't give up on and a 2nd on a mallard that was dead but locked his wings and went a couple hundred yards with my girl in hot pursuit.  There's a couple glory pictures too.  Not a bad weekend All mallards, wigeon & pintail.

Very nice!
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

  Yep, the main reason I still bird hunt is to watch my pup do her thing.  When your in the blind, I think she's watching the sky harder than I am at times.  I've had several labs over the years.  They've all been good hunters, but each one has their own unique personality. 

  I agree with you BD1, Warren has some good bloodlines.  I think Bella has about one more solo season coming before I bring home a new puppy to get the next generation started.  Then it begins again...

Sounds like a great plan Goldeneye  :tup: That truck doesn't look right without two dogs in the back. Unfortunately life took up all but about 4 trips into the field this year. Going to really put in the work with Cedar this off-season...going to build a blind by the pond and really work on etiquette. She is young but now is the time to get it right. Don't be a stranger.
