Early Goose Season Video

Postby HUNT 24/7 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 7:59 pm

Got some video of a few of our 2016 hunts, this was the first hunt of the year in 2016. As usual, we can't shoot, can't call & the dog was to wound up to focus! Gotta love it!!!!

Very nice man.

Said it before, I'll say it again...you gave me hope that a DD could be a goose/duck dog.

Thanks! I honestly think they make an awesome waterfowl dog, can be handled, their search & nose is second to none, pretty solid combo.

24/7,
as a retriever guy and someone that has always advocated that Vdogs could do good retriever work, I will say very nice work!

I suspect that whoever was handling the dog had some good influence from the ret side of things.

I would suggest the vdoggers here look closely at this.

Dog was Very steady. didn't break on birds or shot. Dog was whistled trained. Handler was able to control dog and send him to the bird if the dog needed help.

Retrieves seemed to be fairly short judging by camera and amount of time it took dog to get to bird. I would love to see this dog handle a long cripple.

What we saw was a result of a good dog and good training. Maybe very good training.

So Kudos to you!!!

Wow! Thank you!
I am the owner, handler & trainer, I followed a modified version of Smartworks, for the retriever side of things, it took a little time to get the control & not lose his natural drive. I train with a good friend, his lab Otter is a grand master hunter & is in most of our videos, so, Yup! Ive been influenced for sure! Haha

Yes these were all pretty short retrieves & ill take it on the first hunt of the year! Lol! I didn't get much film last season as Id have liked to, so unfortunately I don't have any video of long blinds, but he handles them great! My idea of a long blind in hunting conditions is 200 yards, he ran several between 100 - 200 yards & a few out to 250 with 1 over 300, (I run a GPS collar). He doesn't line perfect but will take a cast no problem, angle backs as well, usually gets to the bird with 1-2 casts, sometimes none.

Even field trial dogs don't always take perfect lines. Its the ability to give corrections and have them followed which is critical.

Keep up the good work!
