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

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
