First bird of the year
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:30:12 PM »
Took my oldest daughter on opening morning, she actually woke me up 15 mins. before the alarm went off. Got to freshin the dog (Goose) up too! It was a great hunt even though we went home short a limit. Lol I think I need to go freshin up myself, I missed some birds that should've been in the bag! Goose even looked at me stupid!

Awesome photo!  A great day and great memories for you and your princess!

Your comment about your dog looking at you funny reminds me of my first lab, Zeke.  A great dog who loved dove hunting.  When he was 4 or 5, I took my wife with us on an opening day shoot (she enjoys it, but only goes every few years).  Well, the birds were pretty scarce, but my shooting even worse.  After some long waits between opportunuties and a couple misses that should have been easy hits, my wife (sitting 50 yards up the treeline) dropped one between us.  Zeke retrieved it, surprisingly took it to her rather than me, and sat with her the rest of the afternoon.  Didn't even give me a look.  Shameful!
