Hunting Dog?

4 posts in this topic

I have been looking for a ticked German Shorthair pup. Are you all out? I do alot of hunting & would like to have a good pointer. My brother also has a pointer male that is great in the fields. His is almost a gray brown ticked color. This is what I like also. I am from the Fargo, ND area. Please let me know or point me in a direction of someone whom would have any pups. Any key things I should be looking for when purchasing a hunting dog? This is my first one.

Thank you,

What are you going to hunt? You mentioned a "pointer" do you mean English Pointer, or do you mean a pointing breed?

Check out thread at the top titled "Dog training material and information." There are some excellent resources for pointer training and breed research.

Hey Bob; spend this season and the winter studying and learning about dogs, dogs and more dogs. Read all you can and talk to dog owners, breeders, trainers.

THEN go shopping for a puppy. You will be better informed and more confident in your ability to choose. Both you AND your new dog are winners that way.

Take your time. Do it right. Enjoy the many delights of owning a well bred, well trained companion. It is one of the true joys of life. wink.gif

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
