I was unpacking after a day of coyote hunting when I noticed that my seven month old yellow lab pup had made a bed out of my rifle case. Hopefully her adoration of firearm storage is a sign of good things to come this duck season!! -gbourgeoisiii

I snapped this photo of my dog Remington when we were on a camping trip in West Virginia. it just proves that even the most dedicated pheasant dogs need a little vacation. -deerslayer34
This is my dog's first night running a live coon. We were just scent trail training Trigger. Like most times he is an overachiever, and just wants to make me happy. -CDN420
Even a future hunting pup know to take time to smell the flowers. -Kody
That's me and Pokey discussing on where the largemouths were hiding that day. -fasted
This lion put on a heck of a chase through some steep, brushy, rocky country. When it was all said and done we had some bloody, tired, but proud hounds. What a chase! Brennan on the left and Jim on the right. Jim harvested the lion. -ironjoe
This is Merl the dog with an elk antler I found last season while shed hunting. I set the antler on my bed while cleaning and Merl jumped up like he wanted to pose for a photo. He was with me when I found another shed in the same area. -coelk
This is our versatile hunting dog retrieving a pheasant Pam shot in Lincoln, Nebraska. He is a NAVHDA Prize 1 Utility Dog, a UKC/HRC Started Retriever, and a certified school therapy dog. He is owned and trained by Pam and Mario Robinson of Lincoln, Nebraska. -P. Robinson
scamp, my beagle, hunting in 16 inches of snow. -SakuraJedi
Here is a picture of my first Lab-he was a natural in the field with some God given talent---sadly he is gone now; but I've still got a lot of great memories. -the decoy hunter
This was my son's first pheasant hunting trip. He loved it so much all he wants to know is when we are going again. We hunted in Osborne County, Kansas. -RWilliams
My two male labs, RB (3) & Jager (1), did wonderful again! Even Jager, who has a broken back left leg, made some great flushes and retrieves. His cast didn't slow him down a bit. Our group opened up with 27 roosters and 13 quail. It was a great morning. -Kelli Shearer
Taking a photo break after the big morning hunt. Mo, Buddy and Mick. -Lloyd Lawless
This is Moby or "Mo". He is an 18-month-old Labrador that was rescued from the southwestern coast of Oregon. He spent his days in the Humane Society. I adopted Mo just five weeks ago with ribs showing and looking pretty sad. I gave him a good home and lots of love and now he is my hunting partner. -Lloyd Lawless
Here's my dog on a south Georgia squirrel hunt. Our group took 26 that day. -Ga squirrel dogs
I got this duck while we were walking back from our blind during the 2008 youth waterfowl hunt. -upfisherman96
Sue and I had one of those days when we actually limited out on these evil little critters. -Brett Richardson
Our hounds on a coon hunt. -jlipe
My uncle's dogs were trailing a wounded deer that had been shot on a nearby property. My uncle and another hunter both waded into a beaver dam to get the dogs and the bayed deer. The hunter shot the deer and most of the dogs scattered. After retrieving the deer, my uncle tracked his dog and found her tired after a long days hunt, and being a loving dog handler, he helped out by giving her lift! -outdoorchic
Oscar is a GSP and is 4.5-months-old in this picture. This is his first quail hunt. Oscar showed us he had a great nose and could find the birds. His retrieving needs a little work, but so do my shooting skills! -revsr
While working with Nana, our 6-month-old yellow labrador, in the Shenandoah Mountains this spring, she allowed me to take a break from throwing the bumpers to snap this photo. It is a photo my wife and I will treasure forever. Not only has she learned to retrieve, she can even pose for photos. -alovorn
My 14-year-old son Ethan shot his first buck and we had to track the wounded deer with our lab Ramsey. The deer crossed a quarry lake but our lab cut him off and forced him back into the water. He managed to drowned the deer. He then pulled the deer while swimming back to us on the bank about 75 yards. -ToddBible
This pic is of my stepson's first duck a young drake woody. He bagged it with his single-shot 12-gauge and the family dog brought it back to him. He was so excited about his duck he didn't see the next two ducks come in. I think he is hooked! -piker
