    Best advise yet. The thing I always liked about the hunt test program was the fact that 90% of well bred dogs can easily get a JH, and a JH can hunt. Then go for SH, by that time you what you've got...

    You just start training the dog, step by step, with each step passed getting you closer to a fully trained retriever. There will be set backs along the way, most can be compensated through...

    I don't know about an LA guy lecturing a northern Michigan hunter on cold water retrieves. Each of us has to do what's best for our dog.

    You forgot Goldens.��

    I have two inside the house, sleep on the bed, Golden Retrievers. One wouldn't hesitate, the other I would watch carefully and use the boat if needed. That said both dogs...

    To be clear, we are all just saying what we would do with our own dog, not judging anybody else with their decision. I ha e two dogs, one is heavy boned, lots of muscle, a little winter fat and a...

    I'm a field trial guy with two all age dogs. I had an epic hunt last November where I had two long retrieves out of three limits in conditions cold, but warmer than posted. It was perhaps 20-22...
  7. Poll: On the flip side, if I lived in a southern state...

    On the flip side, if I lived in a southern state with a light coated dog and flew up north to hunt in the middle of winter, I would probably pass on the long retrieve. Even with my cold-acclimated...

    I'm on the road training and trailing for a few weeks, so can't post a pic. I have three vest, the Cabelas XL fits my 83# male, the Cabelas Large and Avery Large fit my 70# male. I walked my dogs in...

    I live in NW Montana, my dogs are well trained, fit and used to a cold environment. They wear tight fitting neoprene vest and I monitor them closely when we hunt. We have had threads on cold water...

    That was the team that knocked my Rams out of the playoffs year after year. I hated them, but really respected them and their coach. It helped knowing Bud Grant was a real water fowler in addition to...

    I've done just that dozens of times.

    This is news beyond terrible. Bill was a wonderful man with a very dry sense of humor. I was talking with Judy Meyers at training today and we both said we were intimidated by Bill early on, he...
  13. I know you're not talking about the dog, but a...

    I know you're not talking about the dog, but a "control blind" is easier with a slower compliant dog and harder for a fast, high momentum dog. Is that what you are asking about?
  14. I agree with you, but I have seen a lot of blinds...

    I agree with you, but I have seen a lot of blinds just like that, I don't like them.

    :p

    All your comments are right on. I was listening toESPN yesterday about "deflategate", the commentator made a great point. Much like watergate, where Nixon was so far ahead with no chance of...

    No he's talking about the actual blind regardless of dog. Some blinds lend themselves to a high momentum dog while others are much more critical and difficult with a fast dog who doesn't change...

    What's with the drawing thing? I wish I had that arrangement with my hunting buddy Neil. Somehow we keep track of who shot which bird, even when we drop two or three out of a flight, and by chance...

    I watched those videos, I love that guy! And it's pretty cool that the Giants took a chance on drafting him, even made the team. I a giant, roly-poly competitor.

    I think Glenda is unique amongst us old timers in understanding crackerd's post. I try hard and am about 30-40% on getting his abstract humor.

    Cutty; what's you best guess at where the two quarterbacks will be drafted? Not where you would draft them, but what you think will actually happen. Having watched both quarterbacks I tend to agree...
