That'd buy a arse load of steaks and charcoal.

I'll see what I can find out for ya tomorrow, Steven. Use to be really reasonable but it's been a couple years.

Oh and Steven...You will find that Barnesville has got to be the driest effing county in GA after you plant for doves.

Don't put that dog on doves until you have him fetching ducks for a season. He will eat every damn bird he picks up. Trainers tell you not to do this!

Really? Never heard that before. Heck I could throw a day's worth of ducks out of a winger and she'd pick up more than I'll kill in a season probably.

Like Gator said those feathers are thin, and when they can taste meat they will swallow them when they don't know better. I mean swallow them whole, not chew on em. Ducks have much thicker feathers and they cant taste the meat on them. But, once they figure out their job you wont have a problem.

Gotcha. That makes sense.

I didn't really expect much out of her this year, but I was thinking I would take her hunting as much as possible to get her used to hunting, sitting still, being quiet, etc.

steven...

take her hunting if you want. my suggestion and i think that the trainers on here (dakota, mr donald, heath) would suggest you probably NOT carry a gun very much if you take her.

i took drake 3 times last year. 1 time with jb and i didn't pick up a gun. 1 time by myself and i tied his butt to a tree and sat next to him.

1 time with farr and i didn't pick up a gun.

most definitely you need to give her your attention.

I thought thats why you start em out retrieving pidgeons while they are young, to get them use to it and teach them not to chomp down on the bird.

I havent read yet not to take a young dog on a dove field but I will certainly take you guys word for it

I love to watch Allie swim and retrieve but Im gonna have a lot more opportunities to hunt dove than I will ducks Im thinking if for no other reason than the accessiblity issues.

Im perfectly ok with waiting to 2013 though if thats what everyone recommends.

I would have no problem with that.............I just want to expose her to the environment of hunting.

your dog will be force fetched, somewhat steady to shot and in a little different position.

like all dogs and all people that train dogs will tell you- they're all individuals and you just gotta see how they are doing.

I'm just speaking from experience with my lab, and from what his trainer was saying the problem was. I was told to keep mine off of the dove field until he got a duck season under his belt. I am by means no expert, and didn't mean to come across like one.

Mack was both of those, but that was all.

What is the reasoning behind this? Is it fine to duck hunt with them and take a gun or are you just talking dove field shoots?

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.
