    Tattoo's

    I know this is an odd question but here goes nothing. As I sit in my office waiting for fall to hit I think about pheasants. With tattoos becoming some socially acceptable nowdays I have been thinking about possibly a pheasant tattoo. Has anyone seen a well done pheasant tattoo? I am thinking...

    Outlook from those on the ground

    Question about pups from the same litter

    I have a question that I think many people would like some clarification on. I am a breeder of Golden Retrievers. I occassionally keep a pup out of one of my litters. Typically I get the pick of the litter so I choose the one that has the most drive and expresses the most determination for...

    North Dakota report

    Well, I just got back from hunting central North Dakota. Virtually all the corn is still in the field. I was told by someone who manages pheasant property that if the temps stay above 25 degrees that the pheasants don't come out of the corn to roost at night. If that is the case then I see why...

    Guys, It looks like North Dakota has had a bit of a boom in pheasant numbers. Has anyone on the site hunted up there at all? I don't see anything for hunting lodges in the area. Anybody had any luck knocking on doors? What about farmers who would charge a trespass fee? Anybody have any...

    Saying goodbye is never easy!

    I had to say goodbye to the most loyal dog I have ever owned today! My girl "Ruby's number 19 foxy Roxy" (Roxy) passed on today. I know golden's are loyal, needy, trusting, pets but she was the exception. Wherever I was in the house, she followed me. If I got up from the table after dinner and...
