Default Introduction of New Member





Hello all,
I just found this website and since it is all about Waterfowl Hunting, Water Dogs, and all the things I love I had to join.

I am a man 67 years old, retired with two adult son's, both who love to hunt! Personally, I hunt only animals with feathers, but my boys hunt anything that can be legally consumed.

30 years ago I started buying field bred Golden Retrievers and learning how to train them for waterfowl hunting. At that time we lived in Memphis, TN. Good goose and duck hunting all around that area. My oldest son ended up going to Mississippi State University where he earned a couple of degrees in hardwood forestry. He also went from being a kid who enjoyed the occasional waterfowl hunt to a man who lived to hunt!

Meanwhile I was learning how to use retriever hunt tests to test my training and get lots of good feedback from other retriever owners/trainers that watched my dog run. In time I learned how to train and my Golden's started to shape up as field companions. I currently have 3 Golden's all field trained including a Senior Hunter. I train for hunting not for titles, so SH level is all you need as those dogs are finished hunting dogs.....

I now live in the KC area and belong to a waterfowl club. My son's both live within 3 hours of the KC area. Again lots of hunting all around so we get out often. One thing about having kids and adult kids. Neither of my boys have trained dogs, so anytime they go hunting guess who gets an invitation to come along. So if you have kids, as they become independent living on their own, get a well trained gun dog and you will see you kids a lot more...

Looking forward to participating and learning and hearing more.....

I don't have a problem with Labs, Chessies, or other water dogs....I just prefer Goldens as they suit my personality and where I hunt best...!
