Post Dead ducks for off season training
Where do you get your dead ducks for training? I saved a bunch of dogs last year as well as all of my wings and am running out now. Just short of raising a bunch of ducks, what do yall do for training purposes?

I just save a bunch during the season for the dogs bro. Not sure how you would acquire them other than that during off season

Occasionally when I go on vacation I will take my dog to the trainer. He's actually only about $20 more for a week then the local Kennels. At the end of the week usually gives me one of the dead Ducks to take home.

If you have a dog trainer somewhere local maybe he would sell you some. They usually have some dead and some alive.

Craigslist, or go to a local retriever training group. They use dozens for their training sessions and hunt tests.

local HRC clubs normally give away the not so good ducks at the end of a hunt test on sunday also if you are a member of a club running a hunt test they will save some good ducks for the members that work the test to take home. also if you have a big field trial trainer near you and you volunteer to shoot fliers at a trail or for them on a training day they may give you some ducks if you ask nicely, also the field trial trainers that shoot lots of fliers have a flight pen and you maybe able to buy ducks from them (if your in the south talk before they go north to train and vice versa for the northern guys). the local guy near me will have 30-40 ducks before he goes north he doesnt want to feed all summer so i will get 10-15 every june.

tip for making ducks last as long as you can during the summer, when you get home is to put them on your outside ac unit to dry them out fast and keeps the ants and flies off of them and throw them in the freezer when they are dry.
