Our boys were good hunters! We had a friend who said our last lab (Drake) was like a tank the way he would push through any underbrush... They were better duck & goose dogs than upland bird...don't get me wrong, they were excellent at flushing out pheasant and quail, getting them to drop them after retrieving was the hard part...they would drop the waterfowl as soon as they brought them to you...we decided they must not have tasted as good...lol. Our first lab (Hercules...Herc for short) loved diving in the water...I could toss a rock in and he'd go after it & bring one back...it wasn't always the same one...but he didn't care I miss them both tremendously...Labs are such great dogs! Hubs had a working lab when I met him and we played with bumpers and hid his cookies in the house so he could hunt between seasons lol.
