In other news today, we finally took Mariah back in the woods. she had been doing great out in the field and keeping track of me as I zig zagged across the field so we took her out into the pole timber where she continued to be responsive and keep track. Towards the end of the session we got into some thicker cover and had to give her a little tap to get her back in and get her to the front. We’ll keep working her by herself and keeping her close throughout the fall which should give us the opportunity to handle her into birds and kill some for her.
Mariah getting her first go back in the woods.
