    No it doesn't. My dog is absolutely worthless finding upland birds and honestly worn out by the time we get into chukar. She's a duck dog. Fantastic duck dog.
    I just hike around in known spots where I've always busted upland. They flush, I shoot.
    My dogs only purpose is to find after I shoot. Sometimes that's the hard part for humans. 80# Lab. She struggles.

    She looks like a duck and goose getting machine. My Lab just turned 13 last week and although he has the drive and loves going out he just can’t make many retrieves before he is beat. He gets to stay at home with the wife and listen to all the shotgun blasts from the local areas. He hates being left but loves hearing everyone shooting according to the wife. Opening weekend he really perked up.

    Just got back from an elk hunt around the eagle caps. Grouse numbers were good.
