Hemi,

Looks like a bunch of fun. Did the Shorthair get whiplash? What is that device around it's neck?

She was a young one...only 6 months old and took off after a jack rabbit right into a bobbed wire fence. Put a 2" slice right through her ear (you could pull it open and see right through). She was taken to the vet right after. Blood everywhere but she still wanted to hunt. That was her ear taped to to body so it did not flop around, she had 10 stitches put in.

I am glad I had taken down the vet information for the area (SW ND) and knew what vet was open, had the number, and directions to get there. Nobody else in my group had any info and were just going to drive into town to see what they could find. We later found out that the vet he was going to find was closed on Saturdays and would have had to drive two hours to got to the one I had info on.

Don't want to highjack the post....but thanks Kallista, the yellow is my 2.5 year old Kash. Unfortunately he will be retired from full day pheasant hunts after next fall due to multiple joint issues (his parents were OFA good or better on hips and elows).

The one in the back was my buddies bro-in-laws dog, 8 years old. Not the great hunter in the world but kept up for 3 days of hunting until she cut her bad fairly bad. Only the two labs came away from the weekend uninjured.

Ken, is that pic of you guys from a ND hunt?

Actually South Dakota... I gave up on North Dakota about 6 or 7 years ago. Even though it's a draw license, I can live with missing a year now and then.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
