I would like to get a lab for waterfowl hunting, my big question is can I get one this fall so its ready by next season, or would it be best to wait until spring and miss out on a season? Thanks

Why wait? Get one this fall and then get the basic obedience commands down before next fall. He will be somewhat ready, but generally their rookies the first time out, and I wouldnt expect to much, let them have fun and get the smells down

My dog was born in March and his first season he was only six months. I think that is a perfect age for a first season. by the end of the season he was doing very well and his second season was GREAT! This season looks to only be better.

I like the spring pups myselfe. Either way, put the time in and you will get what you want.

Start looking now and take your time to find the right dog for yourself and your family. A dog house, a kennel, and all sorts of things are needed. If you spend some time you can get things ready before the pup arrives and maybe help create a Christmas list for yourself.

Read up on the breed, various breeders claims etc. Go to a field trial or training session and ask around who may have a pup you'd be interested in. Don't go and look at a litter until you're ready cause chances are you're coming home with a dog.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
