Winchester-Mosher at almost 1 year old
I'm always telling people where I got Winchester from when they ask; which is very often. I just came into work for a few minutes today after duck and goose hunting this morning. I sailed a goose across a corn field into a huge patch of standing corn. I figured I'd never see that goose again but I took Winchester over there to see if he could hunt it up anyway. About 100 yards in to the standing corn, he picked up the scent of something and started working it. I let him go for a minute but figured the goose made it to an orchard, which I thought was much closer that it really was so I made him get out ahead of me again. After a few minutes of walking I realized that the apple orchard was still a few hundred yards away yet and maybe Winchester new something that I didn't so I doubled back. Sure enough, when we got back to around the same spot he picked up the scent before, Winchester starting working again. I walked right past the bird by about 3 or 4 corn stalks and never saw him but when I looked back to see why Winchester was lagging behind, he was sniffing the goose. I never would have found him although I'm not sure if Winchester could have picked the bird up if I hadn't been close to him. It was probably at least 15 pounds. He's not crazy about picking up geese in the fields from what I've seen so far. That'll change with time though, I'm sure. He did make a beautiful retrieve later this morning when we jump shot a 15 acre pond near where we were goose hunting earlier. I dropped a nice Gadwall out in the center of the pond and Winchester looked like a pro retrieving it. I wish I'd brought a camera with me. I honestly think that's the bird that'll put him over the top from now on. He knows his job and has a lot of fun doing it. My hunting buddies love his antics and my son Jeff still says he's the happiest dog he's ever seen (and he's seen quite a few). Winchester carried the duck all the way back to the truck which was around a half mile walk. Proud as a peacock out in front of everybody the entire walk so we could all admire his prize. He's a character for sure. Got to get back home now so we can hunt the swamp across the street from my house. Winchesters had a good anough nap by now. Take care Pam and keep it touch. I'll send any good pics of Winchester when he's hunting if I can remember to bring a camera. I wouldn't take a million bucks for that pup, (Honest)!
Hi, Pam; how's things? Thought I'd pass on some pictures we got from Winchester's first fishing trip this past weekend. He loves riding on the boat and gets pretty excited when we're fighting the big ones. The bass were hitting pretty good also. In th Hi Pam. How's things going? My fishing buddy took this picture of Winchester a couple of months ago up at the cottage so I thought I'd share it. I'm still waiting for a good picture from this season's duck hunting but so far, the action has been really

Here's one my buddy took a couple weeks back on a cold windy hunt across the street from my house. Winchester looks like he's about ready for a nice hot breakfast and a snooze in dad's bed. Nov 2008 Winchester's hen Gadwall from yesterday's hunt (11-9-08). What I failed to mention in yesterday's note was that he was so proud of his prize that when we got within a couple hundred feet from our trucks and he knew he was going to have to give up his tro
