FitDog Friday~Pheasants For Marks

First off to our host at FitDog Friday Blog Hop:


This past weekend we decided to use all our pheasants we had left in the pen. This time we didn’t let the dogs hunt’em up like they did all winter (which is what pheasant hunting is about). This time we set up a mock hunt test and used the pheasants as live flyers. Once again John was out in the field shooting a double with the pheasants, there was a blind set up also. I was handling the gang. All three dogs got to have some training.

Nellie was first:

Second was Glory:

Third was Gambler:

They all did very well. I was super happy with Gambler as he had his double then John shot a single which I let go as a poison bird (he was told no bird and wasn’t able to pick up that bird) and ran a blind, after the blind then he went back and picked up the mark.

Whatcha doing Gman?

We had a great training day. If the weather would just say nice and warm so we can continue getting some training in for the upcoming hunt tests.

Stop back tomorrow to find out what one of Norman’s daughters accomplished.

  1. What a great way to keep them fit, and love that they’ll drop the “poison” bird when you tell them to. They look quite proud of themselves in those last photos. 🙂


  2. Very cool that you got to do a mock test with birds. 🙂 Sounds like the dogs did great and you sure got some nice pictures. All three brown dawgs know all about those poison birds because we have been working those a lot.
