    Downsized Vehicle

    Thomas and I came out one year in his Toyota Rav4. We had everything we needed, one large and one small kennel plus so all our gear. The new Chevy Blazer is sharp. Have you looked at the new Bronco's? You looking at new or used? My wife has a Subaru Crosstrex which I think would work well...

    Favorite Habitat to Hunt

    I like to hunt dog hair thick Aspen stands, living in northern michigan that is where our game birds are, grouse and woodcock. When out west I like any habitat other than brome fields. I like habitat where you can work towards pinch points that might get a rooster to hold rather than to the...

    Tell me this isn't smokin' hot

    My wife and I both had covid during Turkey day and xmas holidays and we both got our shots in Feb and March. I would say we both had more side effects following the first shot then the second.

    EVs for hunting?

    I'm sure every state will work that tax in either at the charging stations, but not sure how that would work when charging at home. I dont think the self reporting would be that effective. Michigan we have to self report to our on line purchases so the state can capture sales/use tax. Of...

    Vehicle Purchase

    I've had everything and think the crew cab pickup is the best way to go for both the family need and hunting. You still get crew cans with 6.5ft beds but the shorter with a cap you can haul anything you want plus the family. Hunting wise if you have a pickup and a skunked dog on a hunting trip...

    SD Open Fields Doctrine soon to be gone.

    We have similar legislation being proposed in Michigan as well, must have been a topic at a national meeting. would be interesting to see if other states are seeing the same thing and who is introducing the bills.

    Question for anyone who has ever bought a pup from a breeder

    Joel, I have began the search for a new Brittany Breeder so I will give you my 2 cents. 1 - I look at their website as whole, do the parents have bios and pedigrees easily accessible, are there pictures of puppies other than just in the kennel or nursing. Does the website talk about their...

    Season Wrap Up
