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.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
    • Just found some at Maynard's Tackle.
    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
