    Sad, sad, sad, no matter how you slice it. I followed this story closely as well. About the only positive that I can see coming from this is that it gives those of us in the Hunting&boating...

    More for you than him would be my guess. He may not eat that first day or so, thinking you'll be back that day, but he'll eat after that (my first lab was like that). You, on the other hand, will...

    My hunting partners and I hunt almost exclusively using our boats on the Columbia River. I think type/size of boat/motor should be based on type of water you're hunting and how long you have to run...

    CC before FF?

    Simply put is there any major issue with CC'ing a dog before FF'ing? I've followed Lardy's TRT/flowchart for my last 3 dogs, but #4 is a real handful. Smartest/quickest dog/pup I've had, and I've...

    That said, I have 2 that I use depending on the dog:

    I'll second what copterdoc said. Both are extremely important for a "hunting only" dog. Think about ice, current, or an impedance in the direct line to/from retrieve. It can really be a safety thing.

    I've owned Avery, Cabela's and a local made brand, and like Rick, favor the Cabela's. Velcro can be a pain because it tends to pick up lent/grass etc, but is well worth the hassle because it allows...
