  1. How are the deer numbers in that area? I don't trophy hunt so I'm not looking for any monsters, but a few deer to pick from would be nice. I'm used to hunting in the south metro where the bucks don't have a chance to become bigger than a small 6-pointer.
  2. My girlfriends parents are in the process of buying a cabin between Grantsburg and Siren Wi. I've always wanted to start some sort of "Deer Camp" so I've been thinking this might be my opportunity. The cabin doesn't have any land to hunt on so I am wondering how the public deer hunting is in Wisconsin in that area? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  3. New pup training

    I am located just south of the twin cities. Does the Fowldogs series have formal obedience training? Or what do you use between "retriever puppy training" and Fowldogs?
  4. New pup training

    I put a deposit down today for my first dog, and she will be ready to be picked up middle of May. I am getting a yellow lab female from Schelhaas Family Pups in Pipestone, MN. I live in town but I have a large double lot so I am going to be putting in an electric fence this spring. The dog will have a kennel off the garage and be in the garage/kennel when she pleases. I will be training her the basic obedience first of all, but then I will be training her for pheasant hunting. I'm not into any duck or goose hunting really so I'm not too worried about those. I am looking for any advice on which training series DVD set I should go with. I would like to find a series that starts with basic obedience and then goes into upland game training. I would also like to stick with one series start to finish because I think it will make it easier on me and the dog. Also E-collar training included in there would be huge. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  5. I was out on Bitter this past weekend. Didn't do very well. Only a couple 15" ers over night. Anyone else been on Bitter with a report?
  6. Looking for info

    Hey guys, I'm planning on getting a puppy in the spring and love the looks of the golden retriever/yellow lab mix. I'm wondering if anyone has some experience with them or know anything about them? And if theres any well known breeder around the twin cities area. I'm willing to travel a ways for the right one. I've been doing some research but haven't found any known breeders. Thanks
