Bird Dogs and Pheasant Taxidermy
I took the photo above during my new shorthair pup’s first day in the Pheasants Forever office. While she spent the majority of the day focused on a fresh rawhide and catching some Z’s in her plush kennel, by afternoon she fixated on a pair of mounted pheasants I’ve got hanging in the corner of my office.
Although in a perfect world my new pup would have locked up steady pointing these roosters, she did exhibit strong “prey drive” as she barked while jumping up and down at the stuffed lower rooster. My older shorthair has also shown a strong desire to “retrieve” the same taxidermy.
I’ve gotta believe there are some funny stories out there. How does your bird dog act when encountering taxidermy?
