5:30 am in a large wash near my house. I had my 12 gauge semi-auto shotgun, shooting sticks, Wildlife Technology electronic call, portable chair, and starter’s pistol. And I wasn’t wearing camo clothes. He did good for about the first 10-15 minutes until a cottontail ran into a bush about 25 yards in front of us. I made him sit still for about a minute; I then fired the starter’s pistol and released him. He ran over to my right side where I fired the pistol and then to the bush where the rabbit was. When I fired the pistol it didn’t appear to scare him in any way. He just seemed to be curious to where the noise came from. I can tell this is going to take some time to get him trained to sit still through a stand until I release him.

7/3/12

5:30 am in large wash near my house. I had my starter’s pistol, portable chair, electronic call and no camouflage clothing. After about 5 minutes of playing a baby cottontail distress a coyote came into about 40 yards of us and stop. Tucker stayed seated until I fired the starter’s pistol. At which time coyote ran off and Tucker stood up. I released him and he chased the coyote until the cover got too thick, which was about 50 yards. He did very well on this stand.

6:00am in the same wash about a ½ mile away made another stand. We were on the stand for 20-25 minutes and didn’t call anything in. The whole time Tucker either sat or was lying down.

7/13/12

5:30am went to the same wash as on 7/3 and did two stands. The only difference this time is I had my 12 gauge semi-auto shotgun. Didn’t call anything in and Tucker did good. He either sat or was lying down. Both stands were about 20 minutes.
