Dogs for Pheasant Opener

Recommended Posts

gonefishin11

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 got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54
      popped out from 730 till noon today and fun city. went to 3 different areas and did not see another person. gold with red, purple with white produced. Tried the chartreuse wishbone again and still a no go. someday maybe. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Awesome thanks Rick! I'll post a fishing report on how we do!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
