|Young dogs can teach new tricks|
By Will Maines
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but no one ever said a young dog can’t teach an old hunter new tricks.
It’s a good thing there is no such saying, because a couple weekends ago, this old hunter learned a couple of new tricks while hunting behind a young dog named Gabby.
Gabby is a German shorthaired pointer, and she is very, very proficient at what she does, which is hunting up and pointing ruffed grouse — partridge — and woodcock.
Gabby and her boss, Bruce Drew, met me for a Sunday morning hunt which was far different than any partridge hunting expedition I’ve ever been on before.
