Went to the game farm again today took my fiancée and her dad, Man it was a hot one though! I am not doing too well on remembering the gopro but will for sure bring it next time. But we released 12 birds shot 11 he flushed 13 

Sure glad we had him had one shot deep over sorghum never would have found it if it wasn't for him. Another 2 were winged and running and man Tango is a savage I seen one run by me in thick cover and next thing I see is Tango running full speed behind it jumping and diving head first mouth open.

My fiancée finally shot her first bird too! she got two of them actually which is good because she has been getting flustered grouse hunting the past couple years not getting one. But I told her grouse are the hardest ones to get they frustrate me sometime! But I think this helped her get more confident in her shooting ability so she is pumped to grouse hunt this year too.

Tango did well I am glad they had some ponds around the farm he was happy to jump in to cool off when we rested. I was borderline not wanting to go because of the heat but Tango runs hard everyday and is in awesome shape so I just made sure he had plenty of breaks and water while we were out there and watched him closely brought him in early while they walked by themselves trying to find the ones we missed.

I cant wait to get him out grouse hunting man for some reason I always lose track on were they fall :crazy: Now I don't have to worry about it.

Going to try and get out Pheasant hunting this weekend hoping Sunday it may be less busy out there during the Vikings game.

Well today just wasn't our day ... Started our day looking for pheasants 5 mins in our first spot a rooster flushed in front of us what would be a perfect shot but it was right outside of my range so let him fly. Didn't see anymore in that spot so decided to walk a creek to see if we could jump shoot some ducks no luck. 10 Geese flew above us but we didn't have a heavy enough shot to take them down so they got a pass. Decided to drive to another spot for some pheasants. We were walking a field edge and bam flush something I had pheasant on my mind and thought hen but by the time I realized grouse it was too late. Caught me sleeping on that one. Decided to switch gears and target grouse flushed one more but it was a low flyer and tango was in between me and the bird so no shot. On the way out we walked a field and flushed a hen.

Good day for seeing birds but came home and ordered pizza for dinner.

Training is going good was at the cabin for the fourth and he was non stop go go go did alot of swimming and he was tuckered out when we got home. The fiancees cousin had there Irish setter up there that he gets along with really well as they both have sooooo much energy.

 

He actually goes back to training end of August. Ill be getting married and instead of just boarding him we figured pay a little extra and he gets to to what he loves while we are gone. He will be at Elk river Kennels this time as we are only doing 4 weeks. As Stevenson's training does 8 weeks

      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..

      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.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
    • ANYFISH2
      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
