Dog points for the first time

Recommended Posts

carpmaster4

Me and the father in law were out pheasant hunting today and his black lab went on point and has never done this before and he is 4 years old. It ended up being a hen but it was the collest thing to see. We ended up getting out limit today and the two i shot both landed in a pond but the dog still found it. It was probably one of the best days hunting ye this year even with all the deer hunters out there.

My lab and his mother both point. I think his mother is from a good bloodline but she was a stray so its impossible to tell. I have heard that some labs take a while to do it. My dog is only 1.5 yrs old started pointing this year didnt at all last year. Praise her and hopefully it will continue.

The one lab I owned did the same thing at 4 years and did it on almost every bird the rest of her life...Maybe that's why I love the pointing breeds now.....enjoy it ...uplander

My lab has been pointing since he was 2. If the bird holds tight, he holds with it, but if the bird even moves an inch, he dives in. Just got back from a trip and he pointed a bunch with about a third of them being roosters. Most of them were 1st year birds, just one long tail that thought he could fool us by sitting still and hoping we would walk right by. We were walking with the wind and Duey did the about face and just locked up. Had to kick the grass to get him to move. Even when you know they are there its a rush when they flush.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
