Mine likes to roll in it....I don't know if I'd prefer him to eat it, but at least you don't have anything to clean up.

I guess I would say that you should use a check cord or some long piece of rope. I understand that its nice to let them run uninhibited sometimes, I do it too, but if they are not under your control and they are doing undesireable things then you need to decide if you want them to stop. If you do then you need to keep him on some form of a leash to correct him when he does it. I used a 30ft cod and then a 50ft'r, and now if it ever does happen I have the e-collar.

yes.. but to many trees ..long stems and down trees and branches the rope gets so tangled in.. Theres no way to do with in the woods with a rope for me anyways..I wont use a e- collar.... I am not against them, don't get me wrong, i just wont use them on my dogs.. Thats why i was asking besides telling him to, taking him away from the crap, was there another secret out here i didn't know yet lol..

Hes a male dog after all, all a part of being a dog, just wanted to make sure he wont get super sick or anything.. In case i am not super women that day and miss it..

My GWP loved the stuff as a puppy. We went on a walk every AM were deer poop was everywhere and he would chow. An old timer told me that it was bad business because he was likely to turn into a deer chaser. I broke him of it with vocal commands when he was little and reinforced it with the collar when he got older.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
