Woodcock are a blast. They hold forever for a pointing so they are great for Yogi. He once held point for over 20 minutes on one. Wish they tasted better. Wisconsin has great grouse and woodcock hunting.
 
p.s theres nothing you can do about a dog getting hurt it happens. I've seen nut sacks rubbed raw and bleeding, feet bleeding, eyes hurt, cut chest and bellys. Best you can do is know when they have to be done cause a good hunting dog ain't going to stop hunting no matter what.

guess  your glad junior broke that flock of gobbler for you while poor old buster sat home licking his wounds ...seems like everytime you hunted him he got hurt....you need to keep him and yourself in shape....so you can hunt next season....try taking him for some walks or to a park where he can run....

Fetching is one area Yogi needs the most work but he does fetch woodcocks most times. He fetches pheasants I'd say 3/4 of the time and the other 1/4 of the time he stands over the dead one.

You are what you eat.  Woodcock tastes like worms.
Why be good when you can B-Mobile or Spin & Strut.

Woodcock breast have some of the darkest meat I've seen and they live off worms they taste like shit. Turkeys eat a much more balanced diet.
