My new Springer

9 posts in this topic

I'm pretty excited. I just picked up this boy from Sand Creek Springers. I'm happy to be working with the breeder with my training in the near future. Lots of good dogs come from him.

I just wanted to drag and brag. 9 weeks old - 1st week with me and he "Hups" like a champ!

His name is Maynard.

He looks like a very sharp lad. Ready to run like his tail is on fire. I love that look.

I know alot of the dogs that come out of that kennel and I don't think you will be disappointed with his performance.

Have fun and welcome to the good side grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Fantastic dog. My springer has several generations of Sand Creek in him. They are great folks down there.

I'm not real comfortable sharing what I paid - although I can tell you that I think that he charges around 800.00 or so depending on the stock it's from. I do know he has some puppies right now that he's anxious to sell since it is field trial season. He should have black/white and liver/white males left.

Thanks for all the great comments - this is my first Springer, and I can't believe how smart they are. Doesn't look like they need a heavy hand - they are very eager to please.

Nice looking pup. Here is a few pictures of my new springer Jasmine. I just got her last week from Pine Shadows. She is 11 weeks old. She is the one on the right. This is my first one too. I can't wait til next year when I have her out hunting. They are an awesome breed. I grew up with one, when I was a child.

Bill will treat you right at Sand Creek. My dad and I used to train down there two or three times a week and also ran field trails with Sand Creek Dogs. Mine is 12 and still hunts and is also an FC that Bill trained and ran.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
