A lot of it depends on the maturity of the animal. I am probablty a little bit old school in my methods, but I teach all the basics without the collar before I start conditioning. For me, that is around 6 months, so the collar doesn't come out until a couple of months later. Be careful if you have no training on how to properly use one. You can quickly dig yourself a hole that is awfully hard to get out of if you don't know what you are doing.

Everything I've been told about using a collar was that it is used to reinforce other training. Once your dog knows all the commands and can do them on a checkcord, then you can start using the collar. Once they understand the point of the collar than you should be able to leave the check cord out.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
