    Bird Numbers - Trail Camera Pictures

    I found a nest about 2 weeks ago. Be careful feeding wildlife, it really isn't needed other than being able to take pictures. Corn can be hard to digest for rabbits. Nature provides everything that wildlife needs. The only intervention that man should do is habitat improvement. Leave...

    E-collar help!..

    We have all experienced it, some just have a different way of correcting and teaching. So get yourself some pigeons and shackle one. While the bird is moving in the yard, do your obedience with a lead on the dog. Reward the dog with a treat as he does things correctly. When he disobeys, give...

    E-collar help!..

    Not really he asked for advice and I gave him some great answers. Even attached a link. If I did, I apologize.

    E-collar help!..

    OMG I hope not. It takes several weeks for the dog to settle in, let alone start bbqing him with an ecollar. If so throw that collar in the trash.

    E-collar help!..

    Great advise. The older I get, I am transitioning away from the collar and using more positive methods of training.

    E-collar help!..

    Well if the 3 year old is ignoring you and you have to yell, your 3 year old has not been taught correctly either. Part of teaching your dog commands is introducing distractions. Like teaching a dog to sit. He gets the treat and sits for second as a 8 week old puppy and gets a treat. Next he...

    E-collar help!..

    He should be doing all of this without the collar before you introduce stimulation with the collar. Sounds like a confused dog to me. From what you have described, it appears you are trying to teach with the collar and that is not what the collar was intended for. It is a tool to re-enforce...

    Winchester Super X High Brass 20 Gauge

    I am down to 4 boxes of 20's for pheasants. I have a case of Kent Ultimate Fast Lead #6 in 12 gauge but I don't really want to carry the 12.

    Winchester Super X High Brass 20 Gauge

    I am going to pick up 2 boxes tomorrow due to the fact I am afraid I won't be able to purchase any this fall. I know some of the stores here say they have had shells on order for 1.5 years. Not exactly what I want but it may be all that I can get. The sporting good store limits you to only 2...

    Winchester Super X High Brass 20 Gauge

    Anyone shoot these shells? Found a store that has about a case and a half. Little slower than I generally use.

    What do you feed your Hunting Dog

    I feed Pro Plan 30/20 2.5 cups for a 57 lb female and 4 cups for a young 65 lb male. Personally I like Eukanuba better and find I get better coats with it but with another price increase from Chewy's I switched back to pro plan. Feed Euk for many many years.

    When to start field walks

    I start getting my puppies acquainted to the outdoors at 8 weeks by taking walks, bird intro, etc. I would be skeptical about sending a dog for formal training at 5 months though. Generally 6 months minimum and 7 months more ideal.

    Hunting in the heat

    Short hunts in the morning, quit by noon. The wind wont bother my dog, but the heat will.

    Hunting in the wind

    I kill more pheasants on windy days than I ever do calm days. Can't figure you guys out. The wind allows you to get close as it covers the noise of your approach. Now on extremely windy days, it isn't much fun but a 25 mph is just that, windy, but it is a great opportunity to get more shots...

    Hunting in the wind

    I always hunt into the wind. I don't know that I would call 25 mph a wind condition, just an average day in western Kansas. Its those rare days that there is no wind that makes hunting difficult.

    Water intro specifics?

    Put on some waders and have the pup follow you in. Your a team, that's how all intro's to new things should happen. When the pup comes in with you, toss a bumper out and make it fun.
