No i got him from Dustin.. theGhost_03 on this forum, the sire is out of Goldberrys kennels, the sire is AM CA CH Cold Drake he has conformation, championships in USA and Canada.

obedience, and field championships..Dam is out of Dustin's kennels ...Windy Ridges. The dam is out of the Von Blue line and both are pointing labs..

But thanks for the reply, when you see your pup everyday you don't notice just how big they are getting lol. Hunter is growing fast.. It's very important they are fed a premium, human grade food ..I can sure see the difference from reg store bought foods. Can you email me with the kennels name in Babbitt?

Can i see pic of your pup?

thanks kalli

They sure are good looking pups, I have Coleman out of the same litter and he appears to be lighter in color. If I ever get a chance to get some pics of him I will post them.

I would love to see him for sure.. Yes Dragon aka cold drake was very light they call him a white. Most of Goldberrys are lighter and bred for being calm and not hyper dogs, i have many of the litter pics, i might have a few of yours.. Did your have a certain collar color?

How much did does your buddy weigh? I wont know till later this week for his 2nd booster round.

PLease do sent some pics tho, I think we have a great dog on our hands and their pedigree is top of the line too.

Have you see the two girls that Dustin kept?

Very beautiful, if not i have a few pis

Just got back from the vet for some shots and he is already 32lbs, WOW do they grow fast. He tagged along in the woods a little this weekend, introduced him to some gun shots. I think that he will turn out to be a good hunter, even with my limited traing abilitites.

I think when you see them everyday it doesn't seem like they are growing fast, you can tell they are growing of course, but when people see them after a week or so they say wow hes grown a lot.... I will find out later this week when hunter goes in for his booster..

Did you get his rabies? or are you waiting till next month?

Hunter already started his heart worm pills last month, i get just one a month to his weight since it changes so much each month..

Yes he got his rabies and a booster and lymes, 3 shots, poor guy. One more in 4 weeks and he will be good for awhile. I have not started heart worm, my vet recommends waiting to 6 months, I have started Frontline.

Yep i always started at 6 months too, but the ely vet said he was outside and could have been exposed.. So she said they always start dogs early.. Now 10 years ago when i was up here, and had my kennels od akc sib huskies, they told me to wait till 6 months, so i have no clue, i just did that the vet said to do, thinking maybe its worst now a days with heart worm then 10 years ago..I used to get all my stuff from FF in Rhinelander shots and heart worm, after we got 86 dogs.. was easier.. and i gave a 8 in one with both leptos they don't even give one of them anymore, so i am back at the begining lol

Hunter got his distemper, rabies heart worm and lymes shots today

Hunter weights 32 pounds, they said he should be at 30 pounds for 13 weeks..

The vet said they start all puppies at 8 weeks old on heart worm unless they are born in middle of winter, and that 6 months is way to long to wait for it..

Here is most recent pic of Coleman I have. Had him to vet for shots last week and he is already 49lbs, we had to weigh him twice since he does not look that big. I have had him in the woods quite a bit, he sure likes running around in the woods, next year we will work on actually hunting while in the woods.

Oh yeah Hunters been out hunting many times.. Cant keep him away he sees the gun case and hes off... Hes great at retrieving the grouse.. hes being trained now by whistle only commands.. He is soft mouth.. and at times a pure terror lol..He points great and he trails super, cant fool him with that.. I run all over with the scented bumper, up trees around trees into brush his nose is to the ground and he finds the all... Plus he knows when Heather is going to have a seizure .. he will whine and run from her to me and back... I think the vet said hes 48 pounds.. I will have to look. But hes all chest and muscles...

      So I am torn I want to put a graph in my smaller boat.. I love my lx 6 flasher and am thinking about getting the high speed transducer for it and just going with that but I don't get why they charge $199 for it when bird and lowrance ducers are far less   I almost pulled the trigger on the lowrance hook 4 with down scan and chart plotter at gander for $179  I don't care about the chart plotter really as I have a big hand held gps that I use in that boat and that screen is larger than the hook 4 when you have it split plotter and graph they only had the display model left and wouldn't go lower price so I passed   If I can find the hook 4 at another gander that doesn't have the chart plotter for cheaper I may go with that   Does any one have experience with the lx on open water I hear it is at par with an lowrance elite 5 I am kind of wanting to go with that but don't know   What would you do run the lx open water or go with hook 4 with down scan

      We survived our trip!  LOL   Fishing was steady.   We caught 30 walleyes in 3 days of fishing.  Usually fished from 11 am to 4 pm.  The 'eyes were running small, lots of 11 to 13 3/4" fish, but we did get 3 keepers.  We also kept a few nice perch and crappies.  We also caught a few snake northerns.   Jigging w/ chubs produced the best, but I did catch a few 'eyes on the crawler lindy rig combo.  Mid lake structure and underwater points off of islands all produced fish.  Mayflys were hatching, but the fish were still hungry. I did catch a 4-5 lb channel cat in the Savanna River one evening.   We stayed in the south loop of the Army Corp campground.  We liked that we were w/in about 30 yds of our boat which we kept at the dock.  The river on the north side of us and the lake on the south side offered a nice breeze to keep things cool and the bugs away for the most part.  Con's were the campsites are small and were too close together.  Also no turn around at the end of the south loop road.  The north loop was beautiful, spacious campsites, but surrounded by swamp and we heard the skeeters were bad at dusk.  Definitely want some thermacells or a screen tent to enjoy the evening by the sounds of things.  Also the docks aren't close/in view of the campsites.   We would definitely stay there again, on the north loop, in May or Sept. after the skeeters have died down a bit.   Staff was friendly, shower houses were nice, boat landings were nice.     Brian

      Just got back from our 34th annual Grand Marais trip. Weather, and how bad it was, was the theme. At one point or another, it rained every single day we were there! The wind was miserable he last couple days as well. Really affected our fishing plans, as we had to cancel out on some of our normal lakes, and fish some less than desirable backup lakes.   As per tradition, we left in the middle of the night and pulled up to the Lester River just a few minutes before sunrise. Didn't catch anything there. Also got skunked at the Talmadge and French rivers. I got free admission at Tom's logging camp on account it was Father's Day  and as always, kids had fun feeding the animals. I did catch a few little rainbows out of sucker, knife, and Stewart rivers. Had our traditional "fisherman's breakfast" at McDonalds in Two Harbors. We stopped at the silver creek tunnel, and that was the first time I've been at the overlook since it was actually part of the highway back in '94. We rolled into Grand Marais at about 3:30 and had to wait out a rain storm before putting the boat out on Kimball Lake. We lost several trout, and in the end, only my 6 year old son caught 2 rainbows.   Monday we fished Greenwood Lake, and as was the case with my 2 older kids, my 3 year old daughter caught her very first fish here...a smallmouth bass! Between all of us, we caught about 130 bass, all of which were pretty small. Unfortunately no lake trout. However, a big surprise occurred...while casting for bass, I caught a herring! Then a few minutes later, my son caught one also! Never would have guessed I'd ever catch one in the summer, let alone 2!   Fished a "secret lake" on Tuesday and caught quite a few northerns. They were all either 5 pounds, or 6 inches long, nothing in between. My son caught an 8 pound, 33 incher, which ended up being the biggest fish of the trip. We was screaming, and excited, and wanted me to take his fishing pole. But after about 10 minutes he finally got it in so I could net it. He's still bragging about it. My 3 year old also caught her 2nd ever fish, a perch, which ended up being the only one of the trip.   Went up to Saganaga on Wednesday. I spent I don't know how many hours trying to catch lake trout, but didn't find any!  Finally gave up and ventured deep into red rock bay for the first time ever. Really nice back there, wish I would've went there first. Fishing was ok, considering the weather was starting to get bad. Caught the biggest bass of the trip, a hair over 18 inches. On the drive back we seen a bear. Ironically it was walking down the road to black bear lodge at Poplar Lake.   Biggest disappointment came on Thursday. The plan was to fish both Hungry Jack and West Bearskin lakes. The wind was terrible, and coming straight from the west. Had hungry jack not had the reputation as a big bass producer, I wouldn't have went here. Unfortunately the big bass weren't around, nor any bass for that matter. Only caught 4 small bass. Kids caught about a dozen or so sunnies from the dock at the resort, some of which were decent size. We didn't even bother with bearskin. There's no way we would be able to launch our boats in that wind. We went to Loon Lake instead. In the limited time we were there, we caught about 30 tiny bass. My 9 year old daughter also caught her first rock bass. I tried for lakers, and marked a lot of them, but didn't catch any.    So since we didn't fish West Bearskin as planned, we penciled it in for Friday. Knowing the weather was going to be bad, we picked Poplar Lake as our backup. I drove up to Mayhew Lake to start, because I wanted to check out the launch. I was able to get my boat down the launch, but it was a real tight fit. Nice little lake. We saw a mommy moose with 2 babies laying right on the shoreline. I got sick of trolling, so I decided to cast cranks along the drop offs of the one small stretch of shoreline that was out of the wind (relatively speaking). Hooked into a big fish! Got excited because I thought I finally had a lake trout! It was a northern!  never thought I'd be disappointed in catching a 5.5 pound pike, but that's what I was. Didn't bother going to Bearskin, as I knew the wind was too bad again. Went to Poplar, which is a lake I do not like! As is typical, the fishing was no good! He weather was bi polar! It would be bright and sunny, then rain for 20 minutes. Did that the whole rest of the day! Only caught 1 little pike and  1 little bass. Got excited for a minute, as whitefish started surfacing around my boat in the evening. I was hoping I could catch 1 or 2, but nope!    Saturday we were supposed to fish Two Island for a few hours before going home. But it was pouring rain. We didn't even bother driving around to different boat launches. So the trip ended on a sour note, but we still had lots of fun, seen a moose, had our donuts (I highly recommend the bacon maple longjohn by the way), and went to Sven & Ole's. I was going to go camping in Ely in July, but I think we'll come back to Grand Marais instead, and try to make up for what we missed out on due to the weather. IMG_6122.MOV

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.
