Dogs for Pheasant Opener

20 posts in this topic

There was a post about which dogs would be out duck hunting so I thought I would start a post about dogs going for pheasant opener.

I have a chocolate lab that is almost 2. It will be her second year. Last year we hunted 3 or 4 times a week in ND so I am hoping that experience carries over to opener this year.

Here is my favorite pic from last year:

Nice pic. My Golden is a great pheasant dog as well. I used to love my dad's pointers but I love the way my Golden goes in after them! There is much to be said for a good flushing dog. I would die for a picture like that of her. I am sure your dog will only get better. It is amazing at what they will learn. My Golden is now six. Compared to her first couple years she sure has things figured out. If you liked what your dog did last year you have things coming!

kinda off topic but is it alright to hunt a lab thats being trained to retieve and also work it on pheasants? He's already somewhat trained to "hunt" for blind retrieves, but he's not trained to quarter. Just wondering if its gonna hamper with retrieving training.

My dog will be 2.5 and will be out again this year. This will be his second season and the light has really come on in his head what it's all about. Starting out next weekend near Wilmar for 3 days and then heading to North Dakota the following weekend for 4 days. I can't wait!

I took Dakota my three year old British Lab up to Royal Flush to day to get his mind off duck hunting. I think it worked. He had eight birds total. It was a good run in the rain. smile.gif

I hope to be out this Sat morning. We are expecting our second child any day now so I will have to wait and see what happens. My dog will most likely be out with or without me as my hunting buddies REALLY like to hunt with her. This will be her 5th season and she knows the game well HEre is from S. Dak last year.

This will be my Wirehaired Pointing Griffon's third season for pheasants. He really showed good progress last fall. Here is my favorite photo that I have of him so far. This was his first season at 10 months old. North Dakota limited.

Nice Matt, i was begining to wonder, we didnt get a call from you on Sat. Took Molly out today, to bad for her she had me shooting over her. She did way better than I could have thought that she would. It looks as if Digger turned out a very good day also. Congrats!!!

We had poor cell reception all weekend. Too Bad for Digger that we were shooting over him. Would have taken a lot less work. He did great though. Can't wait to go out again. grin.gif

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
