    Not the best flight around here on opening day, but you just can't beat September 1st! Took my Weim Bandit out, I love to see a good birddog work. Check out the trailer for this upcoming full-length film... Haha

    Pretty cool. Looks like you had a good time.
    I hunted AZ. Limited about 7:30 with 8 WW, 7 Mornings and 25 Euros. Euros were pretty thick, wouldn't have been hard to shoot 100 of them. I quit shooting them to concentrate on the others.

    Nice trailer. Would like to see the whole movie. Cool you mounted the camera on your dog.
    Have you tried under the collar mount, maybe a chesty mount? I noticed all the camera work was done by the dog. Move the camera around will make a great video.

    Cant wait to see the final production.

    Thanks guys. Just testing out the go pro dog mount. I been shying away from filming most of my hunts because sometimes it feels like I'm too worried about getting a cool shot rather than appreciating a day in the field. Dog mount is a good compromise. Throw it on the pup and forget about it. He does all the work anyways! Haha

    My GSP is hard to keep close, but my old Ghost won't leave my side. Forget he's there sometimes.

    Very cool. Yeah the camera can be a distraction, but we really appreciate your efforts on recording your hunt!

    I took my 11 year old daughter on her first dove hunt as a licensed hunter and not just a bird dog...

    we hunted the Brawley area and had exceptional shooting we had limits of WW and 5 MD each before the shadows disappeared. We had to be patient to get our MD because the WW were so thick.

    My daughter shot a 410 O/U and would have put most of the guys i hunt with that shoot a 12 gauge to shame... she missed the first 3 birds, but not by much and that was about it sierra.jpg sierra 3.jpg sierra 4.jpg

    That's awesome. As a dad and grandfather I love to see kids out hunting. My 8year old granddaughter is studying the book and learning the 22 as well as getting good with her bow. Kids are great especially the girls. Be proud of her and yourself.

    Wow a limit with a 410 at her age ,you might have an Olympic shotgun shooter on your hands. I'm no expert but you might want to get her into some competitions and see if she has a shot at world class shooting competition. That's impressive !
