I took my 2 GSP out for their afternoon walk yesterday. One took off chasing a deer and when we returned she had a dove in her mouth. She dropped it by my side and went on about her business. At first I thought she had caught it as there are many dove that feed from the neighbors bird feeder. But after I picked it up and noticed it was missing its head and had a 2-3 day old smell that she had not caught it live. Never the less she appears to be ready for dove season as well.
