Its been quite while since I touched base. I think Dory (official name Drummer) is now 6 and has quite a few miles and birds behind him. He’s been a great dog and the only one left in my kennel after I put down the other 2 I had at the time he joined us.
Anyway, Dory has hunted a great variety of birds over the past 6 years including ruffed grouse, woodcock, snipe, Sharptailed, Sage, and Blue grouse, plus pheasants , huns, and chukars. This September we flew to AK and I shot all three species of ptarmigan over him as well. He is a driven bird finder and I’d have to say that his specialty is covey birds in big country – he is absolutely death on chukars.
Anyway, thought you might like a couple of pics, so see attached.
