Tracking....that's the word that I'll take away from CO 2012 Pheasant Opener. To be exact, Abby's ability to track a running pheasant. I first saw Abby's talent on last year's pheasant opener. While hunting Abby runs a quality wind pattern and when she hits a scent cone she'll usually flush whatever enticed her nose. But when that bird is on the run, her gate and pattern changes as she puts her heads down in pursuit of those wily birds. It's a distinct gate that puts a stamp that she's on a runner. It truly is a sight to be seen. This past weekend was different from last year. The change? When she went off on a track, she stayed honest and produced a bird 100% of the time. Trust your gundog? You bet!
