Training pics - Ginger is Gun Broke

Post by gar-dog » Sat Sep 20, 2008 7:27 pm

We got into a mess of quail today down at out training club. I brought one of my boys with me and had him bring his 20 gauge. We flushed a few quail and I used the primer pistol as a warm-up, because it had been a few weeks since we had been down. Then I had my son stand about 40 yards away and fire the 20 gauge when we flushed birds, and move in 10 yards each time. By the end of the session I would fire the primer pistol and my son would shoot his 20 at the same time and the dog was fine.

Ginger is not steady to wing and will give chase. One time she didn't give chase, but just kind of shifted about a foot and locked up again and I put up two birds. I was mighty proud! The ragweed was thick and held a lot of birds and they were really pinned in. Ginger screamed through the cover and really wore herself out and hunted with her nose in the air. It was a great day.

Here are a couple of pics of her along with my "swamper." (I think I'll have a new avatar now)

Thanks everyone! I think I can definitely hunt over her at this point - we're only 3 weeks away from our NH trip. I am pleased to have a decent photo to retire that wimpy avatar I have been using.
