Looking for ducks for training...

8 posts in this topic

Anyone know where (preferably in N or NW metro) you can buy some ducks for dog training? I've checked Oakwood and one other place with no success.

Thanks,

Blaze

You could also try the local game farm in Hugo. You could buy them live and tele them away or hunt a couple up and use it after. Another thing to do is save one from last year in the freezer.

Chris - yes, please do send me his contact info. My email is ##removed## - remove the ## before & after. I did find a site online that has ducks for sale, so that may also work. I need LIVE ducks to train for searches.

Which game farm is in Hugo?

Thanks for the input,

Blaze

Blaze,

Sent you the info this AM. I got to busy last night trying to ramp up for Cubscout recruitment next week. But anyway let me know if you got it?

Are you training for a NAVHDA UT test? I'm in the process of training for the UT test. I took the month of Aug. off of training because of the heat,but I need to get back on it in Sept. here before the real season comes. I got really lucky & have a Griffon that is just crazy about searching for ducks.

Regards,

Chris

Chris - you've got mail. Not training for NAVHDA, but very similar testing. I have a DD and we have another breed club test the 2nd wkend in Sept. Shoot me an email again when you get a chance - maybe we could get together and work the pups. I'd love to see your Griff work.

Thanks,

Blaze

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
