Jake, Bacon and I just got back from our South Dakota spring snow goose hunt. We did 2 solid 14 hour days, hunting dawn to dusk. Bacon did absolutely amazing, marking each bird, and several times chasing after crippled birds.
First day, 25 birds, 3 of which we are thinking about mounting!
Second day, slower migration day, 13 birds.
We did shoot a goose with a band on it!
Bacon got to stay in the kennels during our hunting trip with the rest of the hunting dogs. Every morning I got to go wake him up (very early!) and I was greeted with this cute little nose

Love the nose peeking out, that's too cute! What do you do with all those birds? (Obvi, I'm not a hunter!)

What a great hunt. We also make pepperettes from goose breasts. Went to a meeting last night and the fields were just full of Canada geese returning to the area. There must have be a couple of thousand by the marsh but still not as many as the snow geese populations you get out west. We have been lobbying for a spring goose hunt but can't get the ministry to pass it.
The ast picture of Bacon on the flop could pass for M.
