Great session

4 posts in this topic

My 16 month old pup Copper had a great dummy session on Sunday after the Vikes game. I brought my twin boys out and we all had some quality time and watched Copper work the dummy. I bought the launching system that uses caps and it is awesome.

Good memories -- can't wait to truy him in the field.

Great news and thanks for sharing Dahitman44!

I know how you feel after your pup has a good session. I had our pup, who is 6 months old now, out working the shotgun over her Saturday. Could hardly hold her when the bird was released and the gun went off! No flinching and retrieved the dead bird.

Brought a huge smile to my face and a was pretty proud of her!

Yep that's it. I love that feeling.

I hope to take Copper Tone out to the Pheasant farm this week or next -- that will be a good test for him. I think he will love it.

Hard to say who will love it more!

Taking the Cocker out for his 1st run at live birds this Thursday. 8 chuckar in a small field. 28ga and a 30 foot check cord... ought to be a great time. We've been working the past few nights on quartering and sitting to the whistle (will immediatley be taught to sit to flush ((I hope)) beginning on bird #1) and he is progressing nicely. You guys are correct... there are few feelings in your life that will illecit the joy of a bird dog coming to fruition! LOVE IT!!!

Good Luck!

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
