I have a new pup that will be 1 year old in Feb. I carefully selected the breeder to get a smaller dog, hopefully 55 - 60 pounds full grown. Due to her size, ducks were more her size then geese. So this season I focused on ducks. It’s been a warm dry winter and in the 30 years I’ve lived in MT. I’ve never had such a difficult time finding birds. I’ve gotten similar reports from friends. Thank goodness the season is over, now I can get back to work. I’ll be buying some pen raised birds to plant for this young retriever. Does anyone know of anyone with birds to sell, chukar, pheasants, pigeons.
