Digging Holes again

Recommended Posts

Now that there isn't much snow in the yard anymore, the dogs are back to digging holes again. Uuggghhh!!!!!!!!!

I have 2 lab mutts that keep wrecking my yard. Areas that had nice grass are now mud and/or holes. I've heard urinating in the area helps. Ever tried it? Any other ideas?

I have that same problem, my two labs love to wreck my yard. Ive never heard of the urinating thing. One thing ive tried that works for a little while was to put their e collers on then i sit at the window waiting for it and give a zap. That seamed to work for a while but a couple days later their right back at it, I think if i were a lil bit more persistent with it i might break the habit.

had a dog that did that too, I think I bought something at a petstore that was sprayed in the area to stop it. Otherwise catching them in the act and giving a jolt should learn them quick too

If they keep digging in the same hole you could try putting some dog doo in the bottom of it. That worked for my dogs. The old timers will tell you to fill any hole a dog digs with water and hold their head under for a while. A little much, but it might work. After catching my dog chewing up one of my favorite pairs of boots I took said boot and wore him out with it. On the plus side he never chewed another pair of boots, on the minus side he would hide out any time he saw me putting boots on for the next few months.

My dog has done this as well. We tried the dog doo thing and it works fairly well. Another thing that works if you know the place where he usually digs is to put pepper down. Usually they will smell the area before digging. It was kind of funny watchin her smell and then sneeze like crazy and run away smile

    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.    
    • I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.   Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.   I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.    Welcome to HSO!
    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
