Hardest thing to get Ruby to do is recall. Can use an e-collar but be careful!

I've trained a few. I recommend Richard Wolters books, especially "Gun Dog." His methods are practical and anybody can do it. Just takes some time and consistency.

 Lots of discipline to work in the backyard for the basic commands. The Gun Dog book mentioned is good. Then she went to bird dog camp, mostly for interaction with birds.

Headed out to chase some pheasants this weekend with my brother and will bring Milo along (and Lady). I've been taking Milo for some nature walks along Indian Creek and some flood plain fields around it trying to get her warmed up as she is still pretty timid in new environments...took her off leash one time and she decided to trot behind a cyclist for about .25 miles while I chased after her.

I got a 40ft check cord to make sure that does not happen again and will let her run around some fields to try and find some birds but will not be shooting over her.  She will stay inside when I am actually trying to shoot birds.   Tentative plan is to introduce gunfire from about 50-75 yards away while she is eating to see how she reacts.

My cousin texted me this on Christmas Morning when he was checking the cows

Try banging pots and pans over her head when you feed her. She'll associate loud noise with good stuff.

Also do you have a trap/skeet club nearby? Take her there on leash and walk around the parking lot with a pocket full of treats to give her when they are shooting.
My lab pup, Mojo, had zero issues with guns after that.

All sound advice.  Slam doors, bang pans, any abrupt loud noise that can be done in day to day activities around the house will help desensitize her to anything that resembles gunfire.

Appreciate the ponters guyz. Popped off some shells twice while Milo was eating today, she was startled but not terrified like lady. Also let her run through some CRP and Milo and play with a pheasant we shot.

Having snow on the ground is a game changer. My brother and I hunted yesterday and probably shot at around 5 roosters but didnt hit any.

It snowed about an inch or two overnight and we had much better luck today, each got one before noon. No dogs, just two bros who have no idea what they are doing walking around in some CRP.

Ive been hunting the windbreak a couple times a day and this morning I missed a golden opportunity. There was some brush up next to the tree line with a road and field on the other side.

Apparently there was a "chute" through the brush to the tree line, birds kept flushing 2 or 3 at a time from the same spot. First 6 or 7 were hens then at the end 3 roosters flushed!

I was expecting more hens and panicked, missed the first two roosters, clipped the third but it took off running when it landed in the field across the street. I tried to follow it but lost it.

Which leads me to another question.

Lets say Im hunting the edge of my land, shoot a bird and it lands about 20 yards in the neighbors land, im assuming im good to grab it right?

But what if you clip a bird and comes down in their land and it takes off running, how far can you pursue it?

(Assume its private land, no WIHA and you have not met the people)

Heard the pelts fetch a fair price. Don't you have to have a license or something?

Its open season 24/7 365 with no limit but only the winter pelts are worth money, go for $50-$100 each.

I meant a license to sell the pelts. I thought there was a catch.

You have a legal right/obligation to retrieve wounded game.  However, you must still have permission to enter someone else's property.  If they will not grant you permission, you can contact your local game warden and they will come out and assist in the matter.

This may be South Dakota only, so may not be the same, but you can go into someone else’s land to retrieve a downed bird, but cannot take your gun with you. Obviously this doesn’t help much on an active runner without a dog. AFAIK, there isn’t a provision to go hunt someone’s land without permission, just because there is a wounded bird there.

Thanks bros, kinda what I was thinking...grab the bird off the neighbors land but you cant pursue it. Not an issue I have run into yet but just wanted to make sure that was the standard practice.

Got another rooster this morning. Spent most of the afternoon walking milo around the windbreak/fields and letting her play with the dead pheasant.

She did find a live pheasant under a tree and flushed it out, no point just went in after it. Thats a start I guess!
