How to deal with a gun-shy dog

By David Mazey.

THE shooting season is over and if you’re as lucky as I’ve been, you’ve at least had some sport since October. Avian Influenza put paid to our September partridge days, but we’ve been extremely lucky to have some lovely birds after October as well as pheasants, though the unbelievably wet weather since Christmas made shooting more problematic.

One has to admire the ingenuity of the keepers who go to such lengths to provide a decent day for the Guns in the most unfavourable conditions. On our last two shoot days the valley had become a lake with incredibly fast-flowing currents of water running through every gateway so that there were only certain places where it was possible to navigate one’s way across the flow.

However, despite the odd wet wellie, we had a couple of really enjoyable days.
