    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    I have my dog strictly for hunting, but at this time we are still training. We did have a hunt over the weekend in which she did real well. More hunting next year. I would rather get the fundamentals down solid now and save the hunting for next year.

    I have one question, when do you guys work?

    I love duck hunting just as much as anybody but I only get to go 1 maybe 2 times a week.

    I guess I should start another thread titled "what you do for a living"

    I only get to duck hunt on the weekends. However, I make the most of it and am hunting every Saturday. I also get to work a couple of Pheasant Tower shoots so my dogs get a decent amount of birds each season. Once the season is over we run Hunt Tests the rest of the year. I'm ran Derbies and will start running Qualifiers with my 2yr old dog. My old guy is 10 and really starting to show his age. All he does is hunt now.

    When I work, Im usually off by noon.
    Starting at 3-4 am helps.
    It's too cold to go in the mornings, so afternoon field hunts work just fine for me.
