I had Nigel and Glenn in the field this morning for some New Year’s bird work. Here they are Pack Hunting some quail. The only rules are, nobody flush the birds until I say, nobody chase, and everybody share the kill. I had to put the camera away to shoot but all did well. I’ll get the GoPro going so I can film the shot, fall and retrieve.
The video is a bit long but I think it shows that when it comes to stalking birds, there is no hurry. Let the stalking strategy develop. Patience, for the dogs and the handler, pays off. It’s also a lot of fun to watch.
The dogs are wearing GPS collars. No e-collars are used.
