Find a tamie killing operation near you and go let her retrieve some ducks for there clients. I think they can start shooting on Oct 1st. I am sure there is one near you. If not I can point you toward one in Molena, which is probably an hour away. This is where you will get the best work done, IMHO.

I'm just thinking that most of the time I'll be hunting by myself more than likely so I never thought about not taking a gun. Not even sure she'll be ready this year, but I'm hoping that she will be.
no i mean no guns duck or dove. thats my opinion. be ABLE to help, hold back, assist your dog the whole hunt. a fast paced 2 or more guns blasting wood duck hunt is tough for a puppy to handle. trust me.

Any connections you have would be great! Molena is actually only about 35 miles from me. I'd be more than happy to go over there some weekend mornings and let the pup pick up birds.

Gotcha. I get what you're saying. I had never heard that before but it makes sense. We'll play it by ear and limit her woods time this year for sure then if I'm going to be hunting and not handling.

A breaking, loud, dog can mess up a hunt. And if you hunt with others youre gonna piss them off and likely they wont want you or your dog back. And in hunting its hard to correct and hold to same standards youre trying to teach. Ask piggie about his brothers lab and the issues he got in trying to hunt the dog before it was ready and the problems it caused with his buddies. Im just in the camp of hunting is not good training time.

Just train the dog to track a deer and get some real use out of that critter. You can get up to 150 for every deer it tracks

I think she would do that without training. She scent trailed a fox for a long ways the other afternoon when we took her for a walk.

I think that may be part of why they're saying to leave the young dogs at home

I like to shoot doves with a dog. But personally, on a good shoot I'd rather not have to fool with a dog. Get a kid to pick up your birds.....
