    Default Will Santa Visit Your Young Pro or Assistant?

    Well that depends on you. These young guys and gals work their Arse's off for little pay and free time.
    They are committed to the sport and the dogs. Most of the big Pro's do pretty well and get most of the credit
    for their kennel. But behind the scenes we know that these assistants are doing alot of the dirty work.

    So make the effort to take them a card and some cash for the Holidays, it will mean alot!!!

    I was going to take one young man duck hunting in the Arkansas green timber after Christmas.
    Just found out yesterday, he has vehicle problems and can't afford to repair his truck and come hunting.
    I feel really bad for him, I know he was all jacked up.

    Make the effort to show them you care!!!

    take good care of your Vet and your Vet Techs...they will always appreciate a cookie platter, a large can of assorted popcorn,or a platter of cupcakes...or maybe a gift certificate to a restaurant for your Vet, or a nice bottle of wine... You just never know when you may need them to save your best friend

    A trusted, capable Vet and caring Vet Techs are worth their weight in cookies, and then some.

    That goes for the hunting guides as well, many guides work for a larger guide service many of my friends that guide get 100 bucks a day which has to pay for their gas, and time setting up decoys and taking them down and dealing with their wives after hunting all day- the tip money keeps momma happy

    X2 lets not get this thread off on all the deserving folks that help us and our dogs. The Assist Trainers and BB are often looked over. They really love dogs or they would not be doing what they do.

    Does buying your wife furniture for Christmas count? She a helluva bird girl.

    Land owners get their favorite bottle of holiday cheer or maple syrup.
