    Default Hunting ditches

    So after my first trip to South Dakota I am wondering what did I miss by not hunting any ditches. I was wary of hunting my dog along fences knowing full well he would try to make it retrieve by going through one. The reason I ask is one evening when we were done hunting we witnessed a vehicle doing about 70 miles an hour down the Gravel Road. We witnessed a lot of pheasants jumping out of the ditch that were spooked by the vehicle. Seems like there may have been easier hunting and we did not take advantage of it. I will be heading out there to South Dakota this weekend just to hunt for two days by myself so I'm wondering if this is something I need to pursue.

    Ditches can be great hunting for sure. A lot of times I’ll use hunting ditches as a way to get the dog some rest. Just depends on the situation. Good luck on your return trip this weekend.

    Hmmm....might be another use for a check cord, have better control over dog, they are not to wide, bad part, there might be some tangles, but better then something terrible occurring.

    Yeah, I untangled him from one fence and the skid plate he was wearing definitely save him from a trip to the vet for stitches.
