3/3/12 - Non Snow Goose Report

Not much to report today. Not many birds flying and those that did didn't show much interest. Sailed one that flew over about 60 yards high, but other than that nothing doing.

It was however a successful day on a couple of accounts. Today was the first day I brought my lab out hunting. He is only 7 months old and has been picking up the training very fast, but it is always a little nerve racking to see how they react their first time in the field. He passed with flying colors today and although he did not get to retrieve, he was very good around the gun shots and was calm in the pit.

The second successful part of the day was when we quit hunting in time to make it to Helen's Sausage House for their famous sausage sandwiches. My buddy who was devastated last week when we showed up 10 minutes after they closed was very relieved when we pulled up and they were still open.
