Looking ahead...

Postby Rick » Fri Feb 09, 2024 7:00 am

Our wildest-ever child, Call, celebrated his 5-month birthday yesterday with remote whistle sits, waiting without creeping until sent for his (hand-thrown single) marks and retrieving them to hand.

May blow up and run off with his bumper and eat it today.

So it's gone with our manic little man. He's well behind our past pups his age, but solving the riddle Call poses has been a fine way to ease duck season's passing.

Perfect time to hone those skills too :thumbsup:
Does Cherry Ridge do any of the Spring goose hunting?

Wild child!!--- That what we have as well. She is slightly behind some of her siblings from what I've seen in videos but we're getting some things accomplished. She's finishing her 13th week of life and I need to keep reminding myself to be patient. I'm beginning to see some mental changes taking place, for the good. It's awesome when things begin to click.

Patience is my biggest struggle training one.

Reckon I have plenty of patience, Moe is 4 years old and he still isn't trained... :lol:
But we might be getting better?

"Riddle" I like that, and what a great attitude... :beer:

I guided Rick Olsen on three of the e-caller hunts he had the grant to run around the country studying prior to the institution of the so-called conservation season - and haven't made one since. Just not for me, even back in the days when spring hunts were far more viable here. But, no, Cherry Ridge doesn't even hunt September teal (aside from guides' friends and family play hunting), just the regular duck season.

Someone elsewhere requested a current Call photo, so we went out and shot this one that I may as well include here. Call at 5-months:

Am delighted to also report that the little alligator finally lost the last of his puppy daggers today.

He is getting bigger, and quite the identification mark...

That's his "power on" indicator, and the dang thing never even dims.

(Tried to sneak in the push-up portion of my every-other-morning routine while he was off getting a drink a bit ago and finished with our version of a monkey on my back. Lucky we finally managed his introduction to having his claws dremeled just yesterday.)

Seeing that picture reminds me that Remi is still a tiny pup. She is a handful, to say the least.
