Took Maximus out yesterday to do some Pheasant Hunting at Bong State Recreation Area. Max is not really that good of a bird dog, as he doesn't go more than 10-15 feet away from me usually. It would be nice if he ventured out a bit to kick up some birds. At least I don't have to actually shoot anything. I always bring my G9 camera just in case there is more action behind the lens instead of the shotgun.
