    Boys have gotten too big to take both of them and the dogs at once so I took the oldest out on Friday night and left the dekes out overnight to take the younger out on Saturday morning. The dogs were a little rusty but quickly picked up on the game and we all shot relatively well with the younger starting slow and then starting to connect later in the morning. All told, 4 limits of ducks and 6 geese. 21 Gadwall, 5 mallards, 5 BWT, 1 pintail and 6 honkers.

    What he said. My buddy just bought a toller pup this spring and it is being trained up for ducks and pheasant right now. Cool little dogs.

    That is a toller. It is her second season. She is working as both a retriever and upland dog.
