We’ve heard a lot of reports that Woodcock have returned to breeding areas in the northeast and we’re envious. Working dogs on spring Woodcock is a real treat, not to mention being a great opportunity to give the dogs more exposure to birds. Older experienced dogs also enjoy working birds in spring even though you aren’t shooting at them. We thought it would be fun to show you what it’s like here in spring. These photos were taken in our yard on March 19, 2011. Obviously we won’t be working dogs here for a while.
