    If I get this right, you'll have a picture of the bumpers. The Bumper on the bottom is the "new one" from Bumper Boy. I added the streamers. The one on top is the bumper I got from Gun Dog Supply....

    Bumper Boy Bumpers

    Just received my new BB 4-shooter, but was disappointed to find small, fabric-covered bumpers, instead of the traditional heavy-duty ones, with the streamers. I E-mailed BB customer service, and was...

    Salmon Oil

    I found a good dog food I like, but something was lacking, because my dogs' coats were glossy, but their skin was flakey. So I went all out and bought a jug of Grisley Wild Salmon Oil. Within 2...

    Nothing like throwing real birds, dead or shot live, to sharpen things up. Just don't focus on throwing a lot of long marks.

    For dogs with a sloppy mouth, I sometimes use a heavy glass soft drink bottle. It has no give and they really have to keep the slick bottle at the right pressure to hold on to it. Then I just...
