    I do my best to keep control over my dog in the blind, and only let her retrieve on my command. I agree cripples need chased ASAP, and I don't really care about the "birds that are working" as...

    So - a SH, almost MH dog broke at gunfire? How did they ever get past JH doing that? Even with no hunting experience, that should be the one thing that dog should have been able to do.

    Just get a 100% British Lab. I was skeptical - thought it was just breeder hype. Either I was very lucky, or there is really something to those British lines.

    Anyway - just my 2 cents. Like I...

    Where do the birds land? Doesn't matter how great "the spot" or how perfect your decoy spread. If you're 100 yards off - you wont kill a bird - so you need to hunt where they want to be, not where...

    For shotgun plinking and doves, etc, recylced shot will save you enough money to make reloading worth while. I figured our my 7/8 loads were running me about $3 a box using it. Still - you have to...

    I reload a lot. What I have found is that a 7/8 or 1 oz load is just fine for shotgun "plinking." 16 yard trap, skeet, sporting clays - if you're just goofing around. With the right components,...

    My 2 cents - if you hit a bird with the center of the pattern, it makes no difference with what you hit it. Same goes for a miss.

    $20 in shells

    $10 in gas

    If you don't...

    Thanks, Dale.
