Mayfly - Not exactly sure but I think some time around the middle to the end of September. I think that's when Rick traditionally picks his corn.

I'm anxious to get Buddy back out on some birds. We finished last season on a good note by getting him under control with the e-collar. What a difference that made! I'm glad I waited until he was a year old. It was worth all the aggrevation of having him drag me around for five months with the checkcord. We had three really nice hard points that day and he was very steady to wing. One missed bird and two decent retrieves. I was able to keep him back on the flushed/missed bird. He marked the bird and wanted to take off after it but I was able to hold him back with the e-collar.

Recently my son and I have been playing wiffle ball in the backyard using Buddy as the utility infielder/outfieder. He does a pretty good job of fetching the ball back to the pitcher since he has a hard time throwing the ball in from centerfield.

I have taken him up to the park a couple of times with the e-collar to let him run and to work on the HUP - left/right/quartering command as well as WHOA. He seems to have a pretty good grasp of what to do when I give him the HUP command with a hand signal and body motion indicating to him which direction I want him to go. He still gets real birdy when he sees a tweety bird. I can tell he does his dead level best not to chase.

I have also been working with him on HEEL, WHOA, STAY and COME when we go for walks around the neighborhood. Towards the end of our walks I can acturally take the leash off and he will stay in the heel position (most of the time).

What sort of yard work have you been doing with Luci? How is she progressing?

I 'm really looking forward to next season. I hope to experiment with some grouse hunting. Me and Spinach would like to make at least one trip to South Dakota for pheasants. I'm going to make as many trips to Rick's farm as I can afford. Hopefully we all can get together for a second annual FM pheasant hunt in Princeton again.

Discovered that Rick has opened the farm in the past as early as the middle of August for hunting restricted to noncrop areas.

Well as soon as you find out he is up and running let me know. Luci and I have some work to do before the season begins!!

Recently I have just been enforcing all the basic comands. She still loves to jump up on people, its gotten better but she is just so high strung and gets overly excited she just can't help it. I have also been working on heel and she is getting better. Control is the main theme this summer. She is doing great at retrieving. She is also learning to use her nose more too. I just want to get out on live birds. After getting out this spring it was so much easier to see what we actually had to work on. So until then I will continue to strengthen what we have and hopefully have a couple months to work after I get her onto birds again.

    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
