Lexi and I made it down to Addieville East Game Farm yesterday to chase some chukars along with some friends of this sight.

Lexi had never seen a chukar. She’s hasn’t done much hunting in fields, either. So I was a little worried about how she¬†would handle things.

She bumped two, but overall, she handled the chukars like a champ. I even has my first retrieve-to-hand from her.
