    GU's are made in the USA. The only downside to a GU winger IMO is that you need 2 hands to reload it (unless you're more skilled than I), whereas you can reload a ZW with only one hand.

    Yes. My dog would develop several sores on her neck from the e-collar, primarily when hunting. No matter how tight I had the collar, the sores would develop.

    Just curious as to what the feeding issues are and how they were resolved? I've had a couple of feed/ejection issues on my Maxus, but I have not yet been able to identify the root cause.

    My understanding is that you can use flyers in HRC, but once the bird is killed, it cannot be used elsewhere in the test (or subsequent tests). If my understanding is correct, this would get real...

    Key phrase to keep in mind is "attire harmonious to the environment". Rule of thumb is head-to-toe camo (blaze orange if you're running an upland test). However, I've seen shorts being worn that...

    My BLF wouldn't jump onto the tailgate either -- she would get as far as putting her front paws up on it. I think it initially stemmed from a couple of mis-timed jumps when she was younger, where...

    We have used a memory-foam bath mat in the past. My wife also found a Realtree camo mat/bed/pad that fit just perfect. IIRC she found it at some clothing/department store?

    My 2 yr old BLF got this on duck opener -- she had probably 25 retrieves that day. Think it was mainly due to over-exertion, as the temps were not that bad, and she had pretty much dried off by the...

    My BLF is right at in the 50# mark, and I use an intermediate RTK. If I were to imagine another 15-20# on my dog, I would think that an intermediate would be too small IMO.

    I'm not sure what the walk up is in AKC, but in HRC you will walk to the line, load a popper, and proceed down a path with the dog at heel. At a predetermined point in the path, a bird will come out...
