Hunting Dogs: Train for the Retrieve with the Right Gear

Use a better imitation "dead bird" and you'll get faster, better results when training your hunting dog.

Buddy's mentor Yankee first got me thinking about how we introduce birds in the retrieving training process, and how it is often too much, too soon. Unfortunately, when this revelation occurred, it was a classic case of timing being everything.

At our first field trial, Yankee followed the scent track like a laser to the dead duck. It was the biggest, heaviest, limpest mallard ever grown in the Pacific Northwest, more than a mouthful and ungainly to boot. Try as he might, he simply couldn't pick it up, let alone bring it to me. Didn't know how, hadn't had any practice with anything that uncooperative.

A second lesson came during a rainy bird hunt on the rocky slopes of Oregon's Steens Mountain. My friend Dave and I were sheltering under a rock overhang when kee-kee-kee, a chukar erupted from just above us. The bird was tumbling before my gun was even mounted, Dave being both a great shot and always at the ready. His bird dog Missy was out of the starting gate in a flash, pouncing on the bird as it rolled down the slope. She was a big dog in a small body, so the partridge was more than a mouthful but she gamely brought back that chukar - by Braille - a wing covering her eyes so she had to home in on us by voice commands.

These days, Buddy and his nephew Manny get plenty of practice with ungainly, limp, heavy, odd-shaped objects so there are no surprises at the end of a (hopefully) superb track during their next field trials. Maybe you've used the usual assortment of rigid white plastic cylinders, or hard foam-bodied "dead birds" for the same reason. Tennis balls, hammers, thawed frozen critters, you name it, they've all been mouthed, chewed, nibbled and dropped in pursuit of a blue ribbon. But there has always been something lacking in those better-than-nothing compromises.

Ultimately I found more success with home-made versions that had more "floppability." If you reload shells, you've got the raw materials in laundered shot bags. Filled with dry beans and tied or taped closed, they present excellent challenges to hunting dogs as they learn to get their mouths around them. Their limpness simulates a just-shot bird, with its own carrying challenges. Add "wings" of empty bags, actual feathers or wings and you're on your way to a great hunt test. And the fabric is pretty tough, too.

Those more realistic bodies weren't pretty, but they worked. But friends soon tired of my nagging them to return my "borrowed" bumpers, so I designed a better one they'll eventually have to actually buy for themselves. It acts like a real dead bird in all respects except that annoying stink that results from too many freezing/thawing cycles. It should be on the market soon, which might save my friends from more pestering, and help your hunting dog make masterful, prize-worthy retrieves.
