friday i took a former student to shoot moorhen. he has been asking for years to go hunting with me. he is now in college and finally got his hunter safety and hunting license. i told him that moorhens were not very sporting but he still wanted to go. he plans to go duck hunting with me this season. he shot 13 moorhen with one really nice shot on the wing. birdie did great. my highlight of the morning was when she marked a bird down jumped in without a push and retrieved the bird. last time i had to show her where the birds were and give her an extra push out of the boat. seems she is putting together gun shot with bird down. she made two retrieves like that and several more that i tossed for her. she loves watching all the birds fly in the morning.
