Three of us got together for a Snipe hunt this weekend. Dave Speer, DoubleB20 and myself. Lots of birds, lost of shooting, and lots of exercise. DoubleB20 left before we got around to pictures. And sorry to Stinkbelly who was unable to make it last minute, we missed having you and your DD on this years THF Snipe rally. A great time was had. I was proud of Dash making some difficult retrieves.





Been quite an experience for Dash Rip Rock this month. Going from hunting one of the largest game birds in north america



to hunting one of the smallest.

New meaning to a double. Dash thinks he is so smart.

I agree. up

Now, allow me to ask a serious question based on the pic of sandhills. Is it common practice to allow a dog to retrieve a downed crane? On a guided goose hunt many years ago, we downed a crane and the guide held his dog and asked the shooter to retrieve the bird for fear of the crane injuring the dog. As well, not having a dog myself, I always just go pick up any downed cranes myself anyway.

Any opinions? Is this a real threat or not really something to be worried about?
