    Older retriever

    All dogs are stiff and sore the day after a hunt, especially when they do nothing 360 days per year. He said the dog was fine the next morning. Sounds like every hunting dog I have ever known. Water and high quality food are all that is needed for recovery, along with a good nights rest.

    New 2020-2021 WIHA map is out

    I believe they can take their land out of WIHA anytime they want.

    New 2020-2021 WIHA map is out

    The KDWP has no control of that. You could enroll a rock quarry into WIHA. I would think those WIHA that are full of cattle will have the signs pulled by the landowner before season.

    New 2020-2021 WIHA map is out

    A lot of the WIHA is still WIHA but the CRP expired and is now full of cattle. I saw several CRP fields last night that have been sprayed and is ready for the plow. Many have been scalped and hayed. Some of my favorite patches are history.

    Older retriever

    It does have side effects and I would use it on an older dog that had an underlining health issue such as cancer. But not on an 8 year old dog with a lot of life left. I can't figure out why some on here are suggesting giving Rimadyl for a dog that doesn't have any known problems other than...

    Older retriever

    Well good luck. Do yourself a favor and look at Dr. Tims. You shouldn't need supplements with a quality food like that. I disagree with 8 being old for dogs provided the dog has been cared for properly. At 8, my dogs have hunted as hard and had as much energy as they did at 3, matter of fact...

    8 is not old. I always considered a dog in it's prime between the ages of 5 and 8. Try some Dr. Tims and I think you will see his energy level go up. I would not use aspirin either. Instead I recommend a healthy diet, lots of exercise, using a dog ramp, etc. The worst thing for a dog is...

    Older retriever

    Did not say I would not use it. I said I would use it as a last resort. It has terrible side effects. If I had an older dog I would use it as a last resort. The OP does not have an older dog. He has a dog that he has allowed to be over weight.

    Older retriever

    I would give Rimadyl as a last resort if I ever used it for anything. It is not too late to get a dog in shape for November, that is nonsense. Curious as to what food you are feeding and how much? Feed a high quality feed such as Dr. Tims Kinesis and give about 2 cups per day if your dog...

    How are things shaping up for the hatch?

    They could live for years on the skeeters here. I have never seen skeeters like this. Hope it dries up.

    Thoughts on this November

    Gov. Kelly delayed the start of school on Wednesday, I doubt she stops there. Real possibility of bringing back the 14 day quarantine this fall.

    They already did it during turkey season, then shut it down completely.

    Dodge would be the last place I would go.

    You may have to stay for 14 days before you hunt.

    mid January quail/pheasant hunt to north central Ks. ( staying in Lucas ). Bringing 3 Brittany's and a Lab.

    No because access As far as dog boots, it depends on the dog. Mine can run right through them and never skip a beat. But I did have a tender foot back in the 90's that would just quit when she got into them. There is no way you could keep those mittens on my dogs anyway.

    mid January quail/pheasant hunt to north central Ks. ( staying in Lucas ). Bringing 3 Brittany's and a Lab.

    Well you had to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival during turkey season if your state was on the list. I suspect the same will happen this fall. Eventually they just stopped NR hunting all together this past spring.

    Be prepared to quarantine for 14 days before hunting. It's coming again.

    How are things shaping up for the hatch?

    5 inch plus rains won't do the chicks any favors today.

    How are things shaping up for the hatch?

    Well it is always a concern for me, I live here, and for the farmers who have not yet started wheat harvest. Especially when the county that got hit last night was home to many of my hunting spots. I believe in 2018, our damage estimate for our home was right at $29,000 for the hail storm we...
