(or words to that affect)

    My message to you, Jennifer, is that you can train your dogs to do good fieldwork without an e-collar. Is it the harder way? Yes, I think it is. But that doesn't mean you can't do it. And it doesn't reflect negatively upon you in any way because that's what you've chosen to do.

    just a note,
    Cabelas returns are super easy with a pre-printed go back in every box.

    hard to shop for size, regards

    This is hilarious! The thread title says "Ladies..." but the guys can't help themselves!

    My eyes! Now I'm seeing Bora in a pair of ladies waders!

    If you need them in a hurry ,buy several sizes and keep the one that fits best (Cabela's)

    I did a quick search for "hip stockings" and they had some nice ones ...not for Bora!
