Pointing lab training seminar this weekend with Julie Knutson!

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that Julie Knutson (author of Training the Pointing Labrador)is hosting a two-day pointing lab training seminar for the Minnesota Pointing Lab Club at RJ's Rooster Ranch in Lonsdale this weekend. Julie is one of the top PL trainers in the nation and is coming in from CO to give this seminar.

Additional details can be found on the MN Pointing Lab site. Need not be a member to attend but the price is a little more for non-members. The spots open for attendees to bring their own dogs to use in the seminar is full.

A quick description of whats going to be covered:

Quote:
Sat a.m. Introduction, General discussion (~1-2 hrs), Tool building: obedience, force fetch, collar conditioning. Retrieving if necessary or desired. Whoa conditioning. Tool building will be the first place we get people’s dogs out and use them to illustrate the steps, problems, etc. At the end we can do some marks, blinds if we get the time or have any interest in that. If time allows, people with questions about handling and advanced retriever issues can work on those.

Sunday: revisit all the questions or issues people will have after thinking all night about things. Then we begin start with the little pups and bird intro (if there are any) and go through a series of putting birds out, listening to what that owner’s concerns or problems are, then running the dog, doing whatever is necessary and them coming back and talking about it with the whole audience.

At the end of the upland we can do whatever people want, talk about advanced stuff, run blinds, talk about passing APLA tests, etc. etc.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
