Tamarack Kennels

Has anyone ever got a pointing lab from Tamarack kennels in Melrose? What do you think of his dogs?

OTCBigBass - Tamerack Kennels is top notch. Tried to get a dog from him last year, had to settle for a yellow from a litter that was sired by one of his dogs.

You will not be disappointed.

I got interested in his kennel thru a hunting buddy of mine.

If your looking for a "classic lab" (big/good sized body, blocky head, easy going, great hunting ability - and a pointing lab to boot) look no further.

Chuck is first class.

I picked up my dog there in November 2007. I am very happy with my dog, and will definately be getting my next dog there as well. If you have any more questions, let me know.

I am hoping to get my next pup from Tamarack as well. Everything that I have heard about them as been positive and it sounds like they are breeding "big boy" labs.

has anyone hunted over a pointing lab? I love labs for duck hunting and like hunting upland over a pointer but have never hunted with a pointing labs. Do they point like a traditional pointer?

OTCBigBass - The lab that I have (pointing) points like a traditional pointer. He retrieves like a traditional lab when I'm hunting waterfowl.

So far I'm impressed with his ability out in the field. He's one year old and has had over 40 water retrieves and pointed numerous pheasants from the 2008 hunting season. He's proving to be a better dog than my 2 yr old chocolate lab as time goes on.

The one thing that I worry is going on with pointing labs is the reduced gene pool that is being used so much. I have seen problems with bad traits being passed along through the lines.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
