How do you make a dove shoot better?  Make sure you have a couple labs in the field!

I never grow tired of watching a good dog work – whether it be bird dogs, hounds or retrievers.  These labs are duck dogs first and foremost –  hunting out of duck blinds and making retrieves in frigid water is what they live for!  However, in early September they adapt well to sown wheat fields and making retrieves in warmer conditions.  A good lab will not only add to the enjoyment of a dove shoot, but also to the success as they recover crippled birds and those difficult to find in thick cover.
