    For good waterfowl AND Deer/Turkey, it's hard to beat western Kentucky. I second the Paducah area (not Hopkinsville, I grew up there). However, I would look very hard at the central KY region,...

    My opinion is that a 90 hp power head with a jet lower unit would be plenty to push your boat, probably even the 75. We have a 75 hp Yammi 2 stroke that pushes an 18ft Alweld with ease on step...

    Thanks for the replies. It's just nice having a running companion, but we'll stick to walks off leash. I like the stand alone marks idea Mary Lynn, we'll try that!

    Proper exercise

    Iíd like to keep my pup (10 mo.) in shape during the long dark winters, but donít want to over-do it. Is there such thing as a retriever running too much? Too fast for too long? Is there a general...

    He's (Cooper) actually very obedient even with distractions, which has been my main focus so far. While I trust I have control over him with just an e-collar, if I'm somewhere that other dogs are...

    Is there something wrong with sport dog I don't know about, or are dogtra collars just that much better? I just got the sport dog 425s and so far it's been working fine for me.
