Pointing lab training seminar this weekend with Julie Knutson!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that Julie Knutson (author of Training the Pointing Labrador)is hosting a two-day pointing lab training seminar for the Minnesota Pointing Lab Club at RJ's Rooster Ranch in Lonsdale this weekend. Julie is one of the top PL trainers in the nation and is coming in from CO to give this seminar.

Additional details can be found on the MN Pointing Lab site. Need not be a member to attend but the price is a little more for non-members. The spots open for attendees to bring their own dogs to use in the seminar is full.

A quick description of whats going to be covered:

Quote:
Sat a.m. Introduction, General discussion (~1-2 hrs), Tool building: obedience, force fetch, collar conditioning. Retrieving if necessary or desired. Whoa conditioning. Tool building will be the first place we get people’s dogs out and use them to illustrate the steps, problems, etc. At the end we can do some marks, blinds if we get the time or have any interest in that. If time allows, people with questions about handling and advanced retriever issues can work on those.

Sunday: revisit all the questions or issues people will have after thinking all night about things. Then we begin start with the little pups and bird intro (if there are any) and go through a series of putting birds out, listening to what that owner’s concerns or problems are, then running the dog, doing whatever is necessary and them coming back and talking about it with the whole audience.

At the end of the upland we can do whatever people want, talk about advanced stuff, run blinds, talk about passing APLA tests, etc. etc.

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
