Puppy Bird Intro Days

Getting ready for puppy, bird intro days. Time for the youngsters to learn important associations from the real trainers (the birds).
In order:
*That great smell (scent) is a bird
*Scent is cone shaped and flows downwind
*Ground scent is not dependent on the wind direction
*The shot (loud bang) is a good thing associated with getting the bird in your mouth.
All we have to do after this is change their hunting strategy to include us and the gun. Success will now come from stalking and pointing, not from chasing. Piece of cake.
