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

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
