Q:
Any tips for making my dog stop whining in the duck blind when no ducks are flying? It's like he thinks I have the power to make it rain ducks, and if he begs enough it'll happen. And if I miss, he just can't handle it.

Whack him and say knock it off. Do you let him be noisy around the house? One thing leads to another.

My dogs start the whining chorus in the Jimmy when we approach the area where they're used to hunting. I often let them get away with it to help get them going and up for the hunt. But I also let them know when I've had enough. I don't let them make any racket when we're hunting in the field.

No, he's a very quite dog around the house. Only barks when there's a knock at the door. He's a very calm natured dog in general really, but he's a different dog in the duck blind. I sat there sunday morning whipping him with a switch everytime he did it. It didn't phase him. Guess I need to move to a bigger stick.

With regard to the second part of your problem, I suggest you hunt with a companion who is a better wing shot that you are.

Give him a bone or a dead duck or something to occupy his time while your aeriating the sky!

Check with the vet and see if it's okay to give him a bit of gravol before you head out in the morning. It might help settle him down.
