    Remote bird launchers

    I have 4 Dogtra launchers, no issues. Launchers in general can create issues with poor flying birds in my opinion but not your question

    Great Season Brewing

    That’s great news, we got our lodging locked up and ready to go. I have to admit last year we had more fun chasing sharpies and chickens than Mr rooster…. Those rolling grasslands stole my heart

    Feeding Time

    Same here, I feed once a day year round in the evening with water in the kibble. Good tip on the honey, I snag a few packets from the condiment section of a restaurant for easy packing. I got caught too far from the truck this year on a day that turned hot, dog started to loose balance and...

    Off limits period and leash question

    Good grief… exploring a wilderness area with a leash sounds like going to the city park. Where’s a guy suppose to run his dog?

    Pointing to far/ not moving in on running birds.

    Work the dog in on some launcher birds this summer down wind, which should create some up close points. Check for a flinch or avoidance when birds are flushed, if not you have an out of the box steady dog which is what people spend thousands of dollar to accomplish. You can work in a release...

    Lab guys sorry but....

    I agree that a covey point from 150 yards and hold till shot is really hard to accomplish, honestly it’s rare. But in my eyes especially in a tough year that’s a covey I would have never found, and if they split on the flush it’s game on.

    Lab guys sorry but....

    If your pointing dog is truly steady it’s fantastic.. I would say hundreds of yards side to side is better than hundreds ahead!

    Lab guys sorry but....

    The thrill with pointing dogs for me is when they take a huge swing and pin down a bird that I would have never known was there in the first place. Huge advantage when hunting marginal ground or large tracts.

    Gucci Time

    Death march takes the need for good dogs out of the equation, I would rather hunt with 20 dogs than 20 people!

    Preferred 20 Gauge Shell

    That Winchester load is my preferred round for the last few years, it’s just right. Mater of fact I’ve got 2 more cases in the mail as we speak. Works well in my ou and an old a5, also bought a half case in #5 for sd last year and they worked great. Plus they have been easy to find last...

    Lead shot ban (DFL introduced bills) opposed by MN State HS Clay Target League

    No way a lead ban would make me stop hunting, out of the question. All I hope for are practical decisions made in the future to phase it out as replacement options become available in mass and at a reasonable price point. My fear is that the laws passed will force the change on a moments notice...
