Congrats Marty and Dave!!
I walk in with mine more often than not, sometimes 400-500 yards each way. Is it heavy? After a while yes. I have pondered putting back pack straps on mine and using it as a decoy bag.
The first picture was with the legs folded under and set next to the pit in Arkansas.
The second picture was in a flooded field in the Mississippi delta. I sat next to her on a marsh...
Silly Yankees let me know when you get a real heat wave! Heat index Thursday will be in the 120's.
Introducing HRCH Sur-Shot’s All Riled Up MH. It has taken 2 ˝ years of hard work and dedication but she finally got her MH. Riley is my first real competition dog and she has taught me far more...
With a dog at this age training sessions should be short and sweet, 5-10 minutes once or twice a day. If you give a young dog to many retrieves they may become bored and uninterested. Remember...
IMO, if you come to the line and the judges have setup a down the shore the dog had better stay wet, no comment or direction should be required from the judges. I think the corridor should be the...
Is an interrupted triple really a triple? Or is it a single, then a double? My interpretation is it is a triple, just like the scenario above is a double.
First series was a triple, with the first bird being a walkup, and a double blind.
Second series was as described above.
Third was a triple with a diversion.
FYI, the second series dropped 10 of...
You can go with the infamous Lonnie Spann camo booty:
It seems to be real popular with the men in the gallery.
This is one of my concerns with the new master amateur! An amateur runs the first series then his/her pro runs the second and third. Who is responsible for tracking this? The Marshall? Does this...
Ainley two hole with fan. I also carry tie out stakes if they are wet or its really hot.
5 gallon bucket with small holes drilled in the bottom.
I see you are from Memphis. Sothern Flight is having a training day in the Como MS area this Saturday, you should come down and meet some local dog folks. You can look them up they have website and...
If you don't train regularly with many dogs "drag back" can be a big deal. Drag back = the scent brought back from the area of the fall to the line by the 20+ dogs/ducks running before you.
Mine loved to watch Hillman too.
The biggest lesson for me is it all starts at the truck. If you let a dog with a big motor come barreling out of the dog box you have already lost a huge battle. This lesson cost me $150. Now she...
26432 This just about sums it up.
Why force fetch a dog that picks up every duck you throw???? Because one day he may not and then what do you do? Same concept different story. Don't skip steps or you will regret it one day.
I've been using it for over six months now. No problems and no fleas or ticks.
Maybe he was so embarrassed by your shooting he tried to take matters into his own hands???? JK, glad to hear he is okay.
Watch the people before you run. See where dogs are struggling and have a game plan when you go to the line. What ever you do don't forget to breath.
We had a good shoot Saturday morning, 79 for the field, 12 for Riley and I. All the hard work is paying off.
I would suggest emailing or calling the members/committee listed on the premium well before the test opens and ask if they need help. Who knows you might get one of those workers slots.
I have a question. If hunt test judges start disqualifying dogs that do not meet standard when does it stop? Color, markings, height, weight, etc. I think there are lots of dogs run every weekend...
