The One That Got Away

October 15, 2011
Jersey, GA

I planted this bird for Tessa and it turned out he gave her a great workout today. He flew well, he ran well, he hid very well - in the roots underneath a tree surrounded by briars - Tessa right there with him until we forced him out. Repeat. And repeat again. Since we had no gunners, he eventually escaped. Not very rewarding for the dog, although I suspect she enjoys the hunt more than anything.

Unfortunately, she still flags a lot. Click here for a good example of bad flagging (tail wagging while on point).

After about 30 minutes of hard hunting, she settles in, and then we finally got points with no flagging.
