3 year old Emma is having her first waterfowl season with us here this year. She's already retrieved a number of ducks but hasn't had an opportunity on a Canada Goose yet ... until this morning. Emma, her big sister Ria and their Daddy Dave Benton were in a pit blind about 60 yards down the shore from us.
Shortly after LST a lone Honker came sailing towards our floaters about 35 yards out when I nailed it with a load of Kent Fast Steel 2s. Cappy was in the blind with me and marked the Honker's fall. He cried and whined and carried on when I called Dave on the radio and told him to send Emma on the retrieve. Here she is on her virgin flight! ...
We ended up with 6 drake mallards, a drake Pintail, a Ringer and the Honker for a 9 bird hunt. Each of the three dawgs had three retrieves.

I think Remi was still sleepy from the looks of that picture she is yawning.
Looks like the 3 dogs that hunted had a blast.
