What a fantastic season we had! The Ruffed Grouse number’s this year were up so we were able to have great dog work and shoot allot of grouse. The attached photo is of Timberdoodle Silver Trigger just shy of 5 months with her first pointed ruffed grouse. I was in a position down a hill and could see her come in and lock on point! I was able to get a shot and down it came, somehow that first bird shot over a puppies point that you bred makes you smile all day! We were able to hunt quite a bit this past season with pups out of our spring 2012 litter and we were thrilled at the bird work that we did see. We were also able to shoot a sharptail grouse over Trigger a month later on our Manitoba hunt! We sure were proud of that pup!
Our bird numbers were wonderful over all and we were able to hunt over quite a few of the pups we have bred over the years. Now we’re into guiding/breeding season and soon we’ll be chasing puppies all over the place again! I am very excited about welcoming such fantastic new Timberdoodle family members to our team! I’m sure I’ll be posting news of their hunting adventures and also of their NA tests! Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful bird/waterfowl season!
