~ On Watch ~ I shot this image several years ago after my buddy Greg and I dropped this brace o' Mergansers as they were swinging into our decoy spread. My gun dog TRAD made quick work in retrieving the pair and was soon back on watch for any other birds that might give him a chance to work retrieves. His eyes scanning the skies, TRAD is all business when working a hunt with us, his intensity for birds is focus defined.

Nice hoodies.

I only took one once and it tasted delicious compared to common merganser. I don't know that the hoodies even eat fish, pretty sure I read they mostly eat crayfish and nymphs.

Nothing beats a good dog but you sometimes need to beat a bad dog.

Even tho I don't shoot Mergansers as I don't have a taste for them , I believe you could make
Scotch double shots more often than , not , if you honestly tried ? I Love this picture as it reminds
me of a dog I had in the past , yep , he also was "one of a kind" , with his ability to mark and obey
commands from far away . He was all business once we were in the marsh as , I would remote
sit him , he was very steady to the shot and knew where his place was on command . He only
lasted 10 1/2 yrs , even tho he was ALL heart , his body just wore out before his time . Years
have passed and 4 dogs later , those memories are like it was yesterday ! But to tell you the
truth , I would have never commanded him to put a fish eater in his mouth , a Coot would
have been better .
Beautiful Dog , Great picture......Thanks
