I got my black lab last summer and have had her out a bunch of times grouse hunting and she has done pretty good finding birds. Well last weekend I got the chance to go out to S.D. to pheasant hunt some private land. Hunted Sat thru Tue and got to see a ton of birds. The dog worked better then I thought she ever would. She flushed well, minded(stayed close), retrieved and even found at least 8 or better birds that we would have never found. She got UP'S from everyone in our groop wich made me the proudest owner in the world. Looking forward to getting back after the corn is cut. Cant wait to see the number of birds that got pushed out of the corn. Should be another great hunt.

Congrats! That is scary how close your story is to mine. We just got back from SD pheasant hunting private land, hunted the same days, and the results with the dog are almost the same. Mine dog is a male black lab and it's his first hunting season and that was his first pheasant hunt.

I hope my story is similar to that. I've got a 6 mo YLM that will be going to SoDak with me next weekend for a 4 day trip. I've taken him out grouse hunting once. This will be his first real pheasant hunting trip but I have had him at a game farm twice to get him some experience.

What are "UP'S"? I imagine it means some sort of praise, but I'm not familiar with the term.

    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
