Young Gage, Kevin and Jeff had a good day watching Betty point and pursue 4 healthy coveys of quail. Jeff and Gage’s primary interest are duck hunting, but on this hunt, Gage was able to get a nose full of quail, make a couple retrieves and work on the “Whoa” command. Hopefully, we’ll see much more of Gage in the years to come.

First retrieve (Jeff broke down after that and bought a new pair of chaps!)
Second quail hunt
Each bird and every day in the field is a big step in the right direction for a young hunting dog.
