Freighter had a great afternoon last Friday hunting at Fish Point. He waited on his dog stand for the birds.
He had one nice retrieve. Unfortunately he and Sunny hunted and hunted for a couple of cripples and just could not come up with them. The experience they get this season should help them out for next season.
The weather was good for hunting.
Saturday was the annual MICBRC Duck Hunting Tournament. Freighter’s Mom Smokey was tapped for the hunt. She did a great job. The hunter’s had six birds, but it wasn’t enough to win. The trophy remained with John who was also last year’s winner. Congrats to him!
Sunday was windy and cold. It would have been a long swim for the dogs to the hunting area. It seems the DNR has been busily pumping water into the hunting areas, so the areas that had been dry are now quite deep with water. Both Freighter and Sunny don’t have much coat yet so they got to stay home and snooze. Hopefully they will get out to hunt again before the season is over.
To all of those in the path of Sandy…be safe.
