(Bo and Me in AZ at Coon Creek)
I do NSTRA field trials and I put out birds on my farm to train my dogs. But, my focus is always on my dog(s) on wild birds. I'm always training with that in mind. Many think the field trial or preserve hunt is not merely a training tool for or a pleasant interlude until the hunt- but is the end itself. My friends, look to the hunt on wild birds! Want to get your dog excited again? Try it.
