Yard Hopper series a GO
It seems the annual, 12th season, Yard Hopper series is a go as least for this season as the property is up for sale. I just spoke with the current owner and he stated, "yes as long as I own it."
I will start again just before Christmas and until mid Feb, when the goose season ends.
Chase the wonder dog will be missed but Teal, now 6 months old, will be in the passenger seat this time. Will be interesting how he will associate with the geese at this young age. Hang on to your hats, Goose hunting with the bow is coming soon.
my best, Paul and Teal
Your ability to bounce back so quickly after your loss is admirable for sure. Good luck and thanks for posting.
Charlie, Tricia and I bounce back quickly, just by purchasing another Labrador. I would expect Teal will be my last one, in my life time. Dogs, they keep us young. Paul
Looking forward to the hunts!
I really enjoy following your goose hunt. Thanks for sharing!
A new chapter. Looking forward to it, Paul and Teal!
Can't wait & good luck with that new dog, he looks good.
I wondered when I saw the For Sale sign. You should do well. There were 1000 geese on Long Pond a couple days ago when I drove by. Looking forward to your thread!
That's good news Paul. Maybe you and Tricia need to move a short distance so you don't need to worry about permission in the future. ;)
Looking forward to reading about the goose adventures of you and Teal, the Boy Wonder.
Can't wait, always looking forward to your goose hunting story.
It was nice to pet Teal yesterday when you stopped by, I think you're gonna have your hands full for a season lol
Yea Brad, he is FULL of piss and vinegar for sure. But like all teens, he will grow up one of these days. Paul
Glad to know we will be seeing more of your yard hopping adventures! I was afraid we had seen the last of it, but I’m not surprised to see your turning the page. Chase will be missed on the thread for sure, but it will be good to see how Teal takes to it. Best of luck!
Very exciting! Good Luck Paul and Teal!
Looking forward to it!
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but can an Old Dog teach a young dog new tricks.
I'd say good luck Paul, but I know you don't use luck, so I'll just say enjoy and thanks for bringing us along!
Bring it Paul... looking forward to it!
Looks like a great pup, good luck!
Chase will be watching Teal work from above. Teal is a lucky puppy.
Looking forward to the new chapter!
Good to hear Paul ! I’m sure you and Teal will do well.
Awesome. Bring it on. Paul and Teal the wonder pup!
Good luck, Paul and Teal!
Always enjoyable thread Paul.
Teal will learn fast no doubt
Good luck, Robb
Maybe you should just buy the place and then you can keep us entertained for a long time! :) Good luck Paul!
Looking forward to it Paul!!
Looking forward to you and Teal's hunts Paul!
Awesome news Paul. Looking forward to watching Teal progress with you!!
Congrats Paul I guess I better send you a supply of Dot's! Ha ha...if you ever need some more geese to shoot they are in my backyard most days!
I went out to the goose field this morning with Teal to do some training and lot of geese came over between 7:30 and 9 am. Heading down south to the Arkansas River near Lamar Co to check out the duck hunting for three days. This will be Teal's first hunting trip. He will be 6 months old tomorrow, Dec 6th. Thankfully, all of his baby teeth have been replaced with adult teeth so he is now picking up and holding retrieved items including a few dead and frozen ducks. Having fun as usual. my best, Paul
Good luck and I hope you and Teal have a great time.
One of my favorite posts ever year. Thanks for taking the time. Hunt
Teal is a handsome fella Paul! Good luck to you guys this winter, looking forward to following along!
