I have included some pictures of a hunt we did yesterday at a Controlled hunting area just outside of Pueblo. We got 10 Pheasants and two chuckers.
It was a great training exercise for Bodie and for Springer. Both dogs did fantastic.
The guy who owns the Pheasant Farm still has over 400 birds left over, and will do these hunts until May. So we will be able to get both boys out their several times before the next season.
I taught Bodie how to retrieve two bumpers in three tries. I now have him doing double bumpers at long distance with one of them being a blind retrieve. He is a hunting machine, and again I couldn't be more pleased with him.
I know my dad really likes Springer and he is going to be an excellent bird dog. Thanks again for everything you guys, and take care of yourselves. The Thomas'
