Friday was probably my final bird hunt of the season, giving Mia her first goose retrieve and Doc a long water retrieve. But I’ll let the videos and photos chronicle what was intended to be a short hunt but turned into a 6-hour marathon that left us all stiff and tired. The fog was so thick that you could often hear the geese and ducks flying overhead but couldn’t see them.
On the way back to the truck we encountered a hunter who had dropped 2 geese, and while he was able to find the first, he gave up searching for the second goose. I offered Doc and Mia’s services and we were able to find his second goose which made him quite happy; in searching for the goose, he had walked within 5 feet of it without knowing it.
