    Mountain Top Custom Kennels........

    Just curious if anyone has ever purchased through them. I am narrowing things down and I like what I see with their boxes. I am thinking of either a two hole for the truck, with storage and a few other things, or, potentially a 4 hole trailer with closets and a few additional features. If you...

    Pigeons......

    Where the heck can I purchase some! I am building a Pigeon coop at the house and am hoping to hold roughly 6-10 Pigeons for training. I can not find birds for sale, anywhere. Does anyone have any insight on where to purchase birds in the Midwest (we live near Madison, WI)? Thank you in advance!

    Sharp Shooter Kennels, WI.......

    Has anyone dealt with them before? Spoke to them and I like what they do and how they do it. Seriously considering going through them for my next GSP. Pup prices seem a bit steep though. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Pigeon Coop Plans and Images.......

    Winter project is going to be the building of a homing pigeon coop for dog training. Right now I have a single GSP. I figure I will only need about 6-8, no more than 10 birds initially. However, I will be adding one, possibly two more GSP's down the road. I only want to build this one time...

    GPS Unit Location.......

    Curious where you folks like to have your units while hunting. I have seen vests (Q5 Centerfire, LL Bean) where the unit can be placed on a strap of the vest, on the non-shooting shoulder. I have seen othera clipbthe unit to a D-Ring on the best and let it hang. I’ve seen units on neck...

    Garmin Alpha vs. SportDog TEK 2.0

    They seem pretty similar. Not sure one is "that" much better than the other. However, I am curious about the thoughts of those who used these. Which do you prefer and why? Thank You.

    Diamond Plate Dog Boxes.......

    To follow up on the previous thread about dog boxes and trucks....... I do not know much about the diamond plate dog boxes and am looking to be educated on them (regardless of manufacturer). What advantages do these types of boxes offer (when comparing to say a Gunner Kennel). Also, how do...

    Kennels in Trucks.......

    I have been running around in an SUV for some time. I will be moving into a pick up and I will not have a cap on immediately. I am looking a picking up a Gunner Kennel and was going to ratchet strap it in the bed (all the way in the back, near the cab. My question is, for those who run...

    Rizzini.......

    I am contemplating an Artemis Deluxe and was wondering if anyone has feedback on this, or other Rizzini guns. As a comparison, the other gun I am looking at is a Silver Pigeon V. Any insight is appreciated. Thank You.

    Late to the game......

    We have a 15 month old GSP and due to work and other obligations, I really have not begun to get serious about her field work until recently. I know I'm late with her! This afternoon I took her out on a check cord and let her walk and trot through some tall grass, ditches and brush. She...

    Considering a couple of guns......

    As the title says, I am looking at a couple of manufacturers for a new upland 20ga. I really like the Beretta Silver Pigeon V and that is very high on the list. The other two manufacturers I know of, one more than the other. One of the other guns that I am looking into is a Caesar Guerini...

    E-Collars

    Merry post Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing time with family and friends! I am looking into collars for our GSP and was wondering what you all liked. Currently, while pricey, I am leaning towards the Garmin Alpha 100, 15TT. Does anyone have experience with this collar...

    Vests......

    What do you all like. I am in the market and am looking at the Q5 products. They look top notch. Anyway, just looking for other ideas for a quality vest for Pheasant hunting the Midwest. Thanks.

    Other Than Upland Birds.......

    What else do you all hunt or have you hunted before upland? Wasn't really sure how to title this, or which way to take it. Just thought I'd start a thread inquiring what everyone hunts or has hunted before switching to upland (if that is all you hunt now). Since I started it, I'll go...

    Dog Essentials.......

    With the season right around the corner, I thought this may be a good thread idea. I think it can be a good asset for those who are just starting out, as well as those more seasoned, but who may have forgotten a few items. With that said, what are the essentials that you feel one must always...

    Decision Time.......

    Looking to grab a new toy for this season. The two I have it narrowed down to, some may not find comparable. The final two are; Browning 725 Field and Beretta Silver Pigeon V. Both would be 20's with 28" barrels. Thoughts on the two?

    Never.......

    Seen anything like the beast we have! I've had dogs, I've had high strung, stubborn Huskies. I have never seen anything like what we have now. 12 week old GSP, still not potty trained (won't poop the kennel but has no issue peeing in it), will not listen, even though she knows "no", "sit" and...

    Teaching Stay.......

    So we have our 10 week old GSP. So far, it has been pretty good. She is a smart little *&(#. We were getting sit down pretty darn good. She was also very good about staying put naturally. I have been working on sit, as well as stay. We have even gotten stay down to the point of being...
