Short version of the story ------ let out some pen raised birds for my dog to work --- they flew off ---------- about 400 yds across a fence --- is there some trick to keep this from happening ?? I"ve never used pen raised birds before.

Get or make a recall pen. Keep some in the pen with a recall door they can walk back in the pen with out getting back out.

You can spin their head and plant them.

All good advice. Use them one at a time and put a ribbon in them if they are not yet trained for recall.

If I’m going to be running the dog on them right after planting, I put them to sleep.
If they are still sound asleep when your flushing, use the toe of your boot kind of like kicking a football. Just not as hard.
If it’s going to be a little later, I slightly dizzy them, and toss them into heavy cover.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.
