Hey Jeff! Where'd you get that Red Dog? Is he a good one? I live in MN also and have a 10 yr old red. Got him from Berg Bros. Great dog. Maybe a little too high test, but super dog in the house and just a great all-round dog. I live too far from good bird country (SE MN and pheasant hunting sucks here) to get him out enough though or he would probably be better. How's your fall hunts been going? Enjoy!
