Duck Opening Water Practice Day





The traditional WGAA Duck Opening Water Practice Day, held on the weekend before duck opening, once again proved a highly popular event for tuning up before the big day. 40 people and 30 dogs once again enjoyed perfect weather and the opportunity to give their dogs some training over a variety of runs, some challenging and some straightforward, on both land and water. L’Epagnuel  Bretons, German Shorthairs, Labradors, Viszlas, Springers and Pointers all participated.
Responsible, sustainable hunting requires that all shot game be retrieved and the handlers in attendance were making certain that their gundogs were ready to fulfil this requirement.
