Today was the opening day of the 2010/2011 waterfowl season. It is a milestone in Rusty's 10 month young life as this was his official first hunt. He did very well and we are proud of him. He will continue to improve with time and experience and by the end of this season should be an accomplished duck dawg.
Rusty hunted with Carol ... after all he is her dawg! They got three ducks all by themself with no help from Remi or me at all. Remi hunted out of another blind with me and we ended up with four.
Cappy stayed home with Gramie but of course he had the traditional duck "planted" for him about 75 yards from the garage as we were pulling in. He was very proud of his retrieve too and, as you will see, grateful for it.
The very last pic in the slideshow is Gramie telling Rusty "Don't be kissing me with that bloody duck mouth of yours, little boy!"
