Ritka Training – First day with no launcher & no check cord

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

This afternoon, I decided to try Ritka on chuckar without using the launchers. I’ve slowly been working to teach Ritka to be steady on her birds. Usually we use bird launchers which lets me control when the birds flush. But someday we need to graduate to loose birds. I put out 3 chucker. I put […]
