    There are specific rules that need to be followed on state WMA land. Those are available on the state F&G website, but not as it relates to hunting tests necessarily.

    white coats, long sleeves also. unfair to correct a dog on a concept that isn't crystal clear to them. if you're going to work on staying in front of guns and taking factors properly, only fair to...
  13. Breeders/vets - do you worry about a dog who only comes in once every 10 mos?
