Dogs.
Good day everyone. Been enjoying reading through the different topic subsections. Could not find one with duck boat dog pics. Started taking the two dogs out on the boat. I think they're as ready as I am to return to the hunt.

Here is my brown fuzzy handwarmer in action. I call her a handwarmer because that's about the extent of it, has absolutely no interest in retrieving ducks in cold water. But she loveable and a great companion for my daughter.

That's great Carl. Companionship is what dogs are all about. If they retrieve, bonus. Sometimes I wish mine wouldn't retrieve because I worry about them, especially when it's really cold.

Morning Scott,

Here are my beagles (Jack and Izzy) enjoying a summer time boat ride.






And then of course Pearl, who works on the boat....

That brings back memories. I ran beagles on snowshoes in Alaska as a boy. As long as the snow didnt get too deep. We have a few here in North Idaho. Maybe I need to go get a few and reminisce over a dish of snowshoe n gravy over rice...

I was going to ask the same question! Great to see someone running rabbits!
Growing up in northeast PA, my uncle had great beagle, most October and early November Saturdays were spent chasing rabbits all over Wayne & Susquehanna counties.

Great picture Troy. If a person doesn't know the snowshoes are white in winter, they might wonder why you're posing. Smile I have a little bit of experience hunting rabbits, but not like you guys. And my silly labrador gets pretty excited when one moves when we bird hunt, quick as lightning when they want. I think there's gonna be birds this fall, my wife saw plenty this summer.

I don't blame your fuzzy brown handwarmer for not wanting to retrieve ducks in cold water. Geez....it's COLD!!!!!

Thanks Stuart. Some of those pictures are mine and some are Steve's. I do continue to work on my photo skills

Just spent a week in the woods on a stream restoration project and they were scarce in an area where I've seen a lot in past dry years. It would be hard to beat last year for partridge. Woodcock were only so-so in the covers I hunt.

Great post. Scott, we have a lot of beach ftont type land here in the high desert of New Mexico. Land developers swear that "some day" it will be really valuable when the water comes! So in the meantime I take my dogs for some training which of course is on the waterless beach for retrieving practice. Took these about three years ago of Sonora, our black female teaching a younger Belize how to go after a bumper. Bev's grandson, Michael, was helping me.

Come on, early teal season which starts here on Sept. 11th. There is still some water that hasn't evaporated yet in the pond. Fingers crossed.

Thank you for that wonderful offer, Scott. It just got through raining here and that should help the pond. I will patiently wait to see if the teal buzz through this area. I'll be ready for them and will have Chip in the blind with me.. Not only that but my wife is a darn good cook and I look forward to our meals.

Good luck when your season starts.

Hi Al,

Good to hear from you. I hope all is well with you and Bev. Pearl will be going into her 10th season in another month. She turns 10 in Feb 2022. It doesn't seem possible she'll be that old, she has brought so much joy in those years and still has so much enthusiasm. Just a great dog. Thanks for asking. Have a great upcoming season. All the best.

Kodi and Otter are/were very different dogs... but you can always tell a CBR by their posture.

Think she was asking why I didn't shoot something for her to retrieve or was wanting a bite of my breakfast. Can't remember which but those are the most common options for that look.
