Here it is – my third attendance at the Hunts Game Preserve (semi-annual) Tower Shoot! AND I love every minute of attending these events. I always remember my very first reaction the first time I came to this semi-annual event…seeing a Ford truck pull up with Standard Poodles. Thinking to myself “you have to be kidding me – this guy is really bringing his poodles to a bird hunt!” WOW was I wrong. First, these poodles were simply amazing – they tore the field up – retrieving every bird within range; and second, I fell in LOVE with them (esp. my favorite two Walker + Beam, their owners are pretty sweet too!). I would have never thought poodles would be such outstanding hunters – as a matter of fact – most people that I share this story with, have the same unknowns about these amazing dogs. The labs in attendance were also so fun to watch – from the masters to the pups in training. They all did such an amazing job. I have truly enjoyed being a part of this semi-annual event at Hunt’s Game Preserve in Southside Virginia with Story’s Game Birds. And when I leave each time – I look forward to my return in 6 short months.
