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...

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
