We wish all our Weimaraner and hunting friends a Happy New Year!
Young Evert, 1 yo,(Ottercreek & Southpaw Jack of All Birds), is learning fast how to find and bay the wild boars to the shooters. Only this week he has 3 boars shot for him. He is focused and persistent, getting the boars on move. Great job!
Rainy day. Thelma and Ray did good, bringing out the game to the shooters. Moose was not allowed to shoot and the wild boars did not pass a shooter in a good range today. Torbjörn got to shoot a roe deer for Thelma.
This weekend we had an opportunity to enter SBnK (Breton Club) field trials and our young Myra was rewarded with 1st prize in both days! Saturday was sunny and offered perfect conditions for bird hunting. We had good amount of birds in the hunting grounds, both partridge and pheasants, 4 dogs out of 12 were rewarded with prize. Sunday was dark and rainy with very little wind, we still found some birds in the cover of high grass and trees, also 4 dogs rewarded. I’m very pleased with Myra’s energy and hunting drive, at the same time she is so focused and handles her birds in very nice and calm manner. It’s such a pleasure to work with her!
The hunting season is always too short and this year especially busy with field trials. Every day hunting is a good day, everything else is a waste of a hunting dog’s life. The pheasant season is now open, we had a lovely day with all our dogs, regardless age – hunting togheter.
