PSR, it's what we all strive for. Point, Shoot, Retrieve. As I was on a 3 hour cast today, with my pup Cap, I got to pondering that. Point, Shoot, Retrieve- all the rest is details. I suppose you could write a book about each event and we all know the "devil is in the details", but PSR is really what it is all about. Do you ever get dissatisfied after a hunt? I find myself thinking of the finds we had throughout the day and critiquing my dogs and even myself. If I'm not careful, I will start getting too critical and then it becomes a competition. I laughed coming in yesterday when I realized I'd worked myself up and what was a really nice day in the field, I was turning in to a disaster! "Hey", I reminded myself, "you are hunting and living your dream. Get your head together and enjoy your dogs and blue sky and your friends, for crying out loud!" I laugh as I remember how I really had to jerk my own chain! If you are like me, start every day with the realization it may your last day behind a dog. Enjoy it!! Also, like I tell my hunting friends, "Try to be the man your dog thinks you are!"
