Beau, another of Thunder and Tule’s pups recently hunted the Outer Banks. Joe reported that Beau did a great job. The count from the first day of hunting was four Green Wing Teal (one banded), six Greater Scaup, a Black Duck, and a Gadwall. From the second day the count was a dozen ducks consisting of Pintail, Gadwall. Ringnecks,Scaup, and Widgeon. A successful hunt!
Many thanks to Beau’s owner Joe for these fabulous pictures.
Heading for the bird.
A long swim.
Good boy Beau!
Nice pile of birds!
The Michigan Chesapeake Bay Retriever Club is having a friendly hunting tournament tomorrow. The morning weather is supposed to continue fair with calm winds and rain expected in the afternoon.
Here’s hoping for lots of
so the brown dawgs of Team Duckbusters can have a lot of
GO TEAM DUCKBUSTERS!
Here’s to fun and safe day for all participants and dawgs.
Storm was able to try out her new hunting vest right away on her weekend trip to Fish Point.
Storm is ready to go!
Storm has never been duck hunting from a boat or on such big water before. It didn’t take long for this Chesapeake Bay Retriever to settle in to watch and wait for some ducks to fly by.
Shouldn't there be some ducks flying around out there?
It was a beautiful spot on Saginaw Bay, but the weather was so fair, there was nothing flying around. I guess the ducks didn’t care that Storm was all dressed up and wanted to try out her new vest.
Decoys are out.
It looks inviting to me.
The day continued to be warm and fair with calm winds right through the evening. This time Tule got to ride in the boat.

After hunting Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday evening and Sunday morning, one Redhead duck heard the calling and spotted the decoys. Storm finally got her first retrieve!
Storm is demonstrating her retrieving technique on land.
She is a proud, but tired girl.
Even with only one duck, there was a lot of fun to be had for a brown dawg. There were other dogs to chase, lots of things to smell, and marsh to be explored.
Storm had a great weekend at Fish Point.
Next weekend the Michigan Chesapeake Bay Retriever Club is having a friendly duck hunting tournament.
Team Duckbusters will rule!
(Provided the weather cooperates! )
Storm and Jim thank Cindy, Gary and Chris for a great weekend!
Well actually not a new pair of shoes, but a new hunting vest.
Storm is modeling her new vest.
She had been sharing with Thunder, but his vest is way too big for her so she now has her own.
She is ready to go!
She is hoping to put it to use this weekend up at Fish Point. Here’s hoping for a lot of ducks for Storm and her hunting partners.
