Best. Gundog Retrieve. Ever.

Today, in celebration of the opening day of the Minnesota gun deer hunting season we bring you this gem via Outdoor Life:

Displaying the kind of obsessive focus and drive that can turn this popular breed into the Pet From Hell – a labrador retriever named Ramsay successfully retrieved his 14-year old owner’s first antlered deer. Across a lake. In January. Read the whole thing here.

Unfortunately it’s illegal to use a dog to track deer (even injured deer) in Minnesota. Dog owners can be fined up to $500 if their dog kills an animal – and a dog can be shot by police or conservation officers if it is caught chasing deer.

    What a great story. Having spent more than a few hours tracking a blood trail myself, I really wish tracking injured deer were legal in my state as well.

    Goldens at Guisachan were used to trail red deer that had been shot.

    One of them, named Mars, did a similar retrieve of a shot stag!

    The deer got stuck in a marshy area.
