    "How far back is pedigree meaningful?"

    I've bought into the three generation rule of thumb. Meaning that if not still expressed within the closest three, the contribution of generations before...

    The Helly Hansen guide coat is the driest, most well thought out rain wear I've found. Has a high collar inside the hood, so raising the hood won't put water down your back, cape type ventilation...

    This thread's title made me think of "You're up, Red." arguably the best retriever line ever.

    "Been there, done that," as our September teal season closed Sunday. Wasn't the best of seasons numerically, thanks to a late migration, but we felt blessed to have the gunning we did, hunt with old...

    When I hear "meat dog," I first consider the source. Seems to me that for most who do a lot of hunting in tough venues it's a compliment denoting high aptitude.

    Some might enjoy seeing the bore on this early Commander given to a college friend of his who hunts with me:

    "Green dynamite," he called it. There for a while it seemed like every other hunter through our camp door tried to give me one, but I could do the same, worthless to me, drake calls on any whistle. ...

    I've used nail gun blanks in a Retrieve-R-Trainer for some 20 years, but I stick with yellows, which are nearly as hot as the reds that are made specifically for that launcher. I'd be leery of...

    Given the variety of stuff I've seen your dogs photographed with, I'm a little surprised that isn't a barn or snowy owl.

    I'm certainly no pro, but I'd view what I gather Bohn is speaking to as a cigaring problem but as a loose mouth issue and curb it early on without pressure through the use of valved bumpers with just...

    Don't mind admitting I had a little fun trying to keep some minds open about cigaring, which I believe may or may not be a manifestation of a real problem but neither a problem in its own right or...

    While I agree with the second part of your statement, the first leave me cold. I'd much rather work with wing-wrapped, free swimming mallards than waste game while Pup sorts things out.

    You sure you aren't an Olympian, too? That's quite a triple jump from cigaring to regripping to puncturing game.

    Here you go, more tentative cigaring, this time on a diving sprig while returning with a blackjack:

    Amy's pegged it. Don't make such a common "sin" a bigger deal than it is, just lay off the doves until good mouth habits have been well conditioned with bigger birds.

    Teal Steel is quite popular in my part of SW Louisiana, and I know duck guides who now use it all season. (This one's been stuck on Kent's 20ga Upland Steel 5s for the past several duck seasons.)
