  1. I have no problems with 4 wheelers in the woods. However, there is absolutely ZERO excuse for a four wheeler to come down a trail where there is a truck already parked at the head of that trail!!!! Being a walker with a dog I get in 4-5 trails a day, now I'm down to 3-4 with the days growing shorter. 4 wheelers can get to twice as many a day or more. Why would you go down a trail you know for sure there is a walker on it right now? That's what's most amazing to me about this situation. It's called Hunter Etiquette or Common Sense or Being Courteous

    Blasto ( blastomycosis )

    This happened to me 11 years ago. My dog lost an eye and a good portion of her lung capacity. My vet told me to get on a plane to Mexico. $10 a pill here in the states. $4 a pill in Fort Frances. $1.25 a pill in Mexico. We were taking 4 pills a day. Do the math, you will see it is an extremely expensive cure!!! I had a friend cross the border from San Diego pick up a 6 month supply and mail them up to me. My dog hunted the last 4-5 years of her life with one eye. Didn't really affect her ability until the last year. Blasto is a Killer no doubt. By now your dog should be well on his way to recovery since he is half way into his meds. GOOD LUCK!!

    Mean dog

    Something like this happen to me roughly 20 years ago. Neighbors dog up at our hunting shack kept crossing the property line until one day he put my young dog on her back right in front of me. I calmly walked thru the trees to his cabin and told him what happened. I politely told him if it ever happened again I would kill his dog, Period. That was the last time I had an issue.

    RECOMMENDATION FOR A GOOD TRAINER

    If you still leave in Fargo you do have a piece of property as nice as Kelley Farms. It's called the North Dakota Retriever Club and can be found off Hwy 10 just west of Glyndon.

    new puppy is scared ...

    Yeah, and they can also be a huge determent. It works both ways, also you have no control over corrections when relying on old gus to teach your baby. Be real careful when using the older dog.

    RECOMMENDATION FOR A GOOD TRAINER

    You spent 2800 for how many weeks? I get nearly 4 months of training for 3200 which includes birds. This was also my first hunting dog. Nothing has been more rewarding then having a well trained dog. Both obedience and hunting. Good training is not cheap but worth every penny IMO. I put my dog through the intro to birds and guns at 5 months which is a 2 week program. It was about $500 with birds and the at 8 months I put her through the Intermidiate Gun Dog/ obedience program which was 10 weeks and about $2800 with birds. Again not cheap but well worth it and I am very satisfied. Good luck with the pup!

    Hunting Around Conibear Traps and Snares

    RangerJack, That's just a little inside thing between Bruler and me. I trapped for 10 years, I know all about the Conibear, in fact it was my trap of choice along with snares when I did my sets for Beaver. I'll let it go at that. I don't want to upset the OP as I did earlier.
