Mia and Elettra together again

Elettra’s been doing very well with her refresher training so I figured it was time to reward her with a short 3-hour hunt at the nearby Wildlife Management Area (WMA). I braced her with Mia and was once again out in the field with the two little huntresses.

As for hunting, Elettra was about where I expected her to be – overjoyed to be hunting but still needing a little more conditioning and training.

Mia did a great job of hunting and tracking but somewhere she forgot the part about pointing and bumped most of the birds we found. I did have several opportunities for easy shots on rooster Pheasants but passed them up; if Mia wasn’t going to point them, I wasn’t going to shoot them.

Maybe it was because the birds were runners, or maybe it was the excitement of being braced with Elettra, but in any case, she will need a little refresher training as well.

In any case, it was good to get Elettra back to hunting again.

Nice point and honor

  1. Always training to do. It is just nice that you are seeing so many birds.

  2. Thanks. I’m pretty much guaranteed to find birds at the WMAs, but for experience, I like to get the guys on truly wild Pheasants, which are more difficult.
