Okay so I have a question. I know that all hunt tests use dead ducks for retrieving. I introduced Buck to birds when he was younger (during duck season) and we worked on marks and steadying, and again during force fetch for a brief period. Lately, all he has been working with is bumpers.
I would like to get some live or dead birds (frozen) to work him on before going to his first hunt test. I could possibly trap some pigeons around my office area... but are there any other ways you guys are aware of to get birds legally?
