I see you have some American Water Spaniels there. I also have some. 2 to be exact. Where did you get yours? My wife's grandparents are breeders of them.

I've hunted over the Wisonsin state dog my entire adult life. Laura Evans, the woman in the pic was president of the AWSA 15 years ago and her dog Rosie was on the cover of the first Bird Dog Magazine. Rosie is Dusty Dakota Rose from a breading by Mary Kangas and a breader from Vermillion South Dakota. The other three are brothers from Mary as well. I owned Jack, the one in front of me.

We hunted the world with that crew. I watched Rosie on a long return pull a large wounded goose almost her size to shore. But what made the story remarkable is that 25 yards out the goose got it's head stuck between the slats of a wooden pallet. She pulled them both in.

Laura has a new pup from a different breader that we will introduce to pheasants this fall. As dogs they do it all, but they shine in the canoe for float trips. Mine had the makings of a good drug sniffing dog and all of them hunt dead better than most breads especially pointing breads.

I've hunted over dogs from Swan Lake Kennels and think they are great but big for bread standard- which could be an asset for some. I'm currently dogless but have three boys 10 8 and 6 that bump alot of birds for me, but I'm looking to get another in a few years so sing the praises of your relatives bloodlines and keep me in mind.

I'm looking for a female, but not necessarily to bread.

Thanks Donbo. It took me a few months to figure out and close off all the spots that red squirrels were using to get in, so I no longer have to carry out a couple of nests every time I go up.

The only good thing about red squirrels is they give you a great reason to break out the .22. grin

These are great pix, although as I'm viewing them, I'm hearing banjo music in my head.

Put a piece of high density foam insulation in place of that seat and you'll be a lot more comfortable when it's 20degrees out. Just don't forget to cut a hole in it.

    • 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!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
    • Just a guess but we are probably giving it a year or two with the team we have to see what they can accomplish, I know that isn't as sexy and making trades and some big moves or blowing up the team but of the last 5-6 years last year was the first time we could be consider a true cup contender. That one other year we got Dubs and went on a late season run I think a case could be made for being a dark horse contender but of course we got booted by Chicago so ya they were just better than us on every level that year. Eventually Pommers will be gone, Staal's contract will be up and who knows what happens with Koivu and we will be forced to re-tool and get younger. This season will be very telling if we can sustain the level of play we saw for a good chunk of the season last year or if we go mental again. The positive to the mental side of our game is if we get hot at the right time we can be a force, the hard part is lining that up for the playoffs when we just can't seem to get it all together.
