Anyone willing to sell training DVDs or books?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I am looking for some new training material to watch or read and in looking around, most of them are pretty spendy....i know i know whats $40 when you have a $400 dollar dog and all the food, vet bills ect ect but I figure anymoney I can save is money made!

So I was just wondering if anyone had any DVDs or books they are willing to sell. Preferably any of the Smartworks series by Even Graham, the Fowl Dogs series, Farmer/Aycock or Mike Lardy (sp) series.....or anything else for that matter. If no one is willing to sell, I will just buy them new, but I thought what the heck, who knows! Thanks!

i've got pointers, versatile breed. so most of my stuff is geared for that. i'll dig though my stuff and see what i can come

up with. don't have anything geared for retrievers though. might take a couple days. take a look at that dog trainer that is on the learning channel or discovery that works with troubled dogs. his name is ceaser something, can't remember name of show.

he's really good with dog obedience and is worth a look for anyone that trains hunting dogs.

Have you checked your local Library? When I bought my dog last spring they had quite a few books and even some videos to check out. I even noticed our local video store has some that you can rent.

If your looking for a good training book for hunting goods, especially Labs, I would recommend Game Dog, by Richard A. Wolters. This is the book that I used to train my dog, the book costs about $20 you can find it on Amazon.com. I found the book really easy to follow it also gives some nice pointers for picking a pup out of a litter for future reference. There is also a DVD that goes along with this book but I'm not sure how much it costs, I found that the book was easy enough to follow.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
