FitDog Friday~Saskatchewan Day 2

Day 2 of our Saskatchewan hunting adventure was actually Day 1 of hunting. Saturday was getting to the farm house, unpacking, visiting with the folks we rent the farm house from and then scouting to find a field to hunt on the next morning. When you are scouting at night you are looking for field that have snow geese in them. Usually when you find a field with snow geese in them at night the geese will head back to that same field the next morning to feed. They feed morning and night and in the middle of the day they spend their time on the water.

Our day starts out at 3:30 am. We get up, feed the dogs, feed ourselves and then we are off. We get to the field and set up our decoys in the dark. The decoys we set up are mostly silo socks and some shells. The silo socks are in the high hundreds we put out. We then park the trucks a long ways from the field so they don’t spook the geese and we walk back to our hunting spot. The dogs get a ton of exercise twice a day as it can be at least a mile walk to the field and back to the truck. Plus they get exercise with all the retrieves, so they stay fit while on vacation.

  1. It all sounded fun until we read the getting up at 3:30 part…we find our usual 5am difficult. Great job with all those birds and a great way to have a fun and fit vacation! Thanks for joining the hop!

  2. WOW! Such a rare moment to see GMan so “calm” (sleepy). He must get a TON of exercise hunting. It’s so great when one can get exercise doing something they love to do! What a great hunt!

  3. There’s a 3:30AM?!? Just waking my dogs up that early would wear them out- no fit dog time needed. That is quite the haul. Nice hunting everyone!
