I thought that title might raise some interest, but truth be known my standard poodle, Sasha, hunts. Now, she's had no real training so most of what she is doing is instinct. Granted those instincts are not top notch but she gets better each hunt. This hunt started like any other, she runs ahead ranging rather far, runs all around like the goofball that she is, and then settles down into scenting and being more methodical. When she does get some scent she gets a bit more focused and starts working the cover better. She's not real big on plowing into the heavy thorny stuff and some birds would burrow in and hold there. Sasha raised 3 birds in about 2 hours and I was able to get two of them. The last bird caught both of us just crossing a creek, I was still mid air jumping over it. Of course my safety was on and I missed the last of that picture perfect trailing away shot. Sasha slept most of the ride home and most of the evening too. I was reloading and she was at my feet. Great close to a great day in the field.
