Cool so Stan gets the free duck hunt?John, yes my sister is married and lives in Winter Park Fl. They come up in the summer. The blind on the Forked Deer River is between Halls and Gates, on the middle fork. The other blind is on my farm about 5 miles SE of Dyersburg jut off Pond Creek. My blinds are not nearly that fancy. built for basically 4 people which is all I really like to hunt with. I am one that if I have the choice of taking my gun or my dog, I will take my dog and you can shoot the ducks
I believe that Stan is planning on having a Jamboree in the spring either in upper Mo. or Iowa. Not totally sure yet. I know I keep harping on it, but he and Pals really did a great job with the 1st one. The training was great and I loved the opportunity to make new friends. I have no doubt that he will again put on a great one.
Ken and I have talked about the need to get those who are beginning to train their 1st dog, to see how those who are experienced, train. I am sure some clubs do a great job getting those involved but wonder if we might improve. I actually see this as a way that might give some insight to clubs to put a higher priority on these new people. Just a thought of mine. I have even wondered if 2 clubs in close proximity to each other might put something on like this. I belong to both an HRC and AKC club. How neat it would be if an AKC and HRC clubs went in togather and put one on! Just a thought.
If I am able, I know that that would warrant another duck hunting trip.
