Another Manitoba hunting trip has come and gone. I was joined again this year by my good friends Doug and Robby along with my dog Bella and Rob’s dogs Cali and Drake. All Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and all are related to each other though various parents. Although labs have been on previos trips, Chessies are becoming the breed of choice among my closes hunting friends.
Opening morning, September 8th, found us in a cut wheat field waiting on Mallards and Canada Geese. God was kind to us this morning with a beautiful sunrise leaving me this view from my blind.
The morning was picture perfect and it rained both mallards and geese at times. The dogs worked well and the hunt was over quickly leaving us the rest of the day for scouting, exploring new areas and generally enjoying ourselves.
