    Sorry, I just made some more space in my inbox. If you are going to use them on blinds, get the 6x30 Yosemite. It comes in a few different colors including pink. They also make an 8x30 and maybe...

    I honestly never had an issue with it through seven dogs. If they did the cigar thing as pups, they learned over time it's easier to pick them up in the middle, so I never really worried about it. As...

    Ed, twist the eye cups down flush with the lens and you can use them with your glasses on. That's what I do. It does take a little practice in training to get comfortable looking through binos while...

    I'm a huge optics junkie, I have owned Swarovski, Leica, Leitz, Zeiss, Nikon, Leupold and Fujinon in everything from 6x30 to 10x42. It used to be that you totally got what you paid for in a linear...

    I really like the Leupold Yosemite 6x30. At around $90.00 it's waterproof, very light, lays flat against the chest, and though not as wide angle as the ubiquitous Bushnell, definitely wide enough for...

    400 yards is kind of the upper limit for field trial marks, in my 20 years I can say I have seen a 500+ yard mark just once. I don't believe any dog actually saw that bird, many didn't even see the...

    That's what happened to my Golden. He was just 6-7 months old still growing fast and not fully set yet. That shoulder injury haunted him for life. After that I trained my dogs to put their paws on...

    I see what you mean, you're talking about before the birds go down. I was talking about lining the dog up to pick up blinds and marks. When I'm lining my dog up on a tough key bird mark I do it just...

    Thanks for that, I'm just happy Lane Kiffin is history. Seems like the PAC 12 might beat themselves up the way the SEC does.

    My first Golden was fairly affectionate, but was definitely more attached to my wife as she was at home 100% that first year. I trained with him, but everything changed the first time I took him...
