Come on there has to be someone who has a hunting dog in the LAX area that has a favorite vet. If you dont't want to say on the board PM me. I don't want to play roulete in the phone book to get an appointment for my baby.

Drive all the way accross the metro to get to a vet that I trust. About an hour and a quarter (give or take the quarter depending on traffic). Can't be that much farther from you to Inver Grove Heights. Another 20 mins or so puts you to Fran Smith in Burnsville. Labs4me with good reason reccommends her and I am ready to switch if my vet ever dissappoints me.

Setter, I can give you the names of two that I have used briefly. Briefly, not because they were bad but I moved away from the area.

My folks took my lab when I went to CO for elk this fall and while I was gone my mom got worried when the pup got real loose stools. She took her in to LaCrescent Animal Care, in LaCrescent and although she it was just a change in diet, the vet did a good job helping my mom out. I have friends down there that use this vet and they seem to be satisified.

When I was a kid, the vet we always used for various critters was Hillside Animal Hospital, Hwy 33 just east of LaCrosse. Good experiences with them but this was about 8 years ago.

If I was to move back I would start with these two. Not alot of info for you put a starting point perhaps.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
