Early Water Work

8 posts in this topic

Got some early water work in with my Griffon this weekend. Had some help from the boys as well. Lots of fun to train and have the kids helping me out. The boys love it and the dog is sleeping soundly at my feet tonight.

AKC and NAVHDA both recognize each other.. So yes it would be the same if he were to register the dog with AKC.

Scott nice pic's... I have had Belle in the water quite a bit over the past two weeks getting ready for the Utility Test. Griff's sure do like to swim!!!

How has the fishing down your way been this spring?

As our water warms up here (50+ degrees) it's starting to get really good for both panfish and walleye's.

Let me know how the UT test goes. I will not be doing the UT this year and I probably not at all with Zeus (maybe the next dog). I just do not have the time to train for it at this point in my life.

I have not been out open water fishing at this point. Sounds like people did decent for the opener around here. I did not even wet a line. Headed to Leech for a long weekend at the end of May. Really looking forward to it.

Scott, I will let you know how the test goes. Lots of work to prepare. Picking up 6 ducks next week to begin training for the live duck search. That should be interesting. Also doing alot of discipline work with her.

Zeus really does sound like a terrific dog and I look forward to hunting behind him down the road. Would be great to see him and Belle work a field.

Leech should be really good by the end of May. You will do well. I was out late today in the wind and did really well on the walleye's. They were up shallow and were hungry! Glad that the winter is over!

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...
    • Knock yourself out. IMO, pro basketball is a terrible sport.         -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------           Here's what they think of the Gophers in Iowa.....    
    • Wait till they lose the game.....  
    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
    • I think Purple means, our BullHeads!
    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
