My partner drew a marsh blind at White Lake for today. Ducks and Specks galore, all over the place. Came home with 2 specks, 6 grays, 4 teal, and 1 widgeon. Knocked down but could not find 3 more specks. All blinds scored today, mostly with specks, mallards, and teal.

For those who claim the ducks are not down, they may not be where you hunt but they sure were where we hunted. The old saying that the sky was black with ducks was seen more than once today and the specks were very, very plentifull

Thanks for the report. I always wondered how the youth hunt went but never had a kid to take. I will pass it on to my friends.

Also, the info on the Mojo was about what I figured. Same with geese and ducks. I got some of those thingamajigs or whatever they are called. Want to try them.

Nothing better than a you and your dog.

In addition to a book, I would suggest joining or at least going to a hunting retriever club day. There is normally years of experience there, other people (along with you taking your turn) can throw dummies for your dog and you can handle him, and you can get some experience that you just cannot get out of a book.

Dog people are good people and most remember when they started and are not uppity, well, there are always exceptions but for the most part you will be helped.
I am not too familiar with where the groups are now, been out of it for some years but there used to be groups in Houma, Baton Rouge, Bonnet Carre spillway and quite a few other places. Go to United Kennel Club or AKC and look up hunting retriever clubs.

Just go check them out, it will be worth it and it will make for a better partnership with your buddy.

If you have a doubt, leave the dog home. Check it out and see for yourself how it looks. Better to have a dog at home than see him be lost and not be able to do anything about it. Bad feeling, I know.
