We are having a tough time in an old standby of an area. Not finding many birds. Emily Dickinson said that "hope is the thing with feathers." Here's hoping that tomorrow will bring us things with brown feathers. One bird today. Sadie and Pop with Floyd:

A fine day in the rivercane with Floyd, Ben and Billy escorted by Abby, Pop and Sadie. Willa rode the bench due to having to safeguard stitches. She’ll be up and at’em soon. We had 15-20 flushes and bagged six. Good day with friends and dogs.

One flat worn out dog, Abby. Note the rivercane camo pattern on Floyd's dog box.

Pop surveying the tailgate, Floyd, Abby, Sadie in the right box, Billy and Ben.

Top to bottom, Billy's 20 gauge Superposed Midas Grade (equivalent); Ben's 28 ga. Marocchi; My 16 ga. MF Ideal 302 Clunkerette. Floyd's Ithaca SKB 20 ga. was camera shy.

So now we know. You hide in the river cane camo dog box and shoot the incoming.

David, the dog box is a huge decoy. Doodles can't resist rivercane. The secret is out. Gil

Hunted today briefly with worn-out dogs. The land bordered a swamp and the birds were on the hill adjacent to the swamp’s edge “nooning” in straight as an arrow sweet gum saplings of about an inch and a half diameter. I tried taking a photo, but it must not have happened. We found at least a dozen birds in about an hour’s time, but of note, four got up from one spot and three from another. We often have pairs get up but never more than that previously. We ended up with 5 but gave the landowner one before we finished.



Abby, Sadie and Pop—all three in need of a rest after Pop and Sadie hunted three days in a row and Abby, two.

How do you think a lab would do on woodcock ? I live in front of a Creek & some bottomland and would like to give it a try if tangible. Thanks.

P.S always wanted a English cocker. On the dog breed checklist lol.

Jacob, I know a lot of Fellows that use Labs on snipe and woodcock but the key is training the Lab to NOT range more than 15 yards from you or they'll flush the bird out of gun range. Drake never goes out gun range. I do not get in the entanglements I stay where when I send him in the thicknesses I have a shot, seem to work for me
