Daisy, my 8 month old gsp mauled and molested a baby robin today. I tried to get her off it; but it was to late.

So in disgust I tried to chuck the bird over the fence but came up short. Daisy immediately ran grabbed the bird and brought it back to me...... Sooooo I ended throwing it a couple more times. I figured a training opportunity is a training opportunity. Daisy is good on Robins!

You may be glad to know your pup isn't the only one. My GSP pup got a grackle in the lake this weekend and took it out. She points any dickie bird in the yard with style and intensity too. Bring on the game birds!!!

My Lab loves all birds especially Morning Doves. Although she will have nothing to do with Pigions.

My wife is not thrilled with the fact that the birds no longer come in to the yard.

Get some pigeons in a cage guys!! I have four that I alternate for my seven month old lab - she loves them!! I give her about 3 tosses into the grass, then back into the cage. Now I'm starting to give the pigeons a few minutes to walk around and leave a trail The pigeons were all grey, so to keep from using the same one over and over, I got some spray paint out, one now has a John Deere green stripe and the other a John Deere yellow stripe. Hopefully these birds will last til we can start going after some ducks. I'm even thinking real seriously about going after some doves when that opens, good retrieving training, good sitting still in the blind training, good practice for the guy behind the gun.

Pups are fun!

    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
