Border Patrol!

10 posts in this topic

if you get a chance to watch "Border Patrol" Do so! its a great duck hunting movie thats 100% filmed right here in MN and 90% is on public waters the other 10% is on fields goose hunting. The movie shows gives you even more hope if you dont think there are that much ducks here in the first place. Their shooting is all that great too which makes it better!

I got a chance to meet Mike, on of the owners, at game fair, he seems like a pretty cool guy. The video is pretty decent. Theres some good footage on it. I think there next one will be much better with the experience they gained from making this one. He said they plan on coming out with it after this fall and next.

I think they said that they're available at all of the Ganders and Mills Fleet Farms in the state. You can find them at kelleroutdoors dot net also.

I've watched it and it is now my favorite video. These guys are really down to earth and they do shoot a lot of ducks and geese in Minnesota. There's no guides or outfitters, etc. You can tell they do a lot of work...but they shoot a lot of birds.

Right on Mnducks! I just watched the video and was really impressed. Nice to see guy shooting ducks in "MN-like conditions". Really liked the personalities of the guys in the videos too. It didn't seem like they were playing to the camera at all. Really good video and I hope those guys stay with it.

I'm still on the lookout for the video down around the cities. No luck yet! smile.gif

Might just have to order it up.

Another video that I recently watched was "Stranglehold" which has a number of Minnesota/Dakota scenes in it. One of the guys in the video is from TRF and Curt Quesnell (from the Lake of the Woods forum) does some of the commentating in the video too!

Stranglehold is awesome! I felt for the black lab on all the hard retrieves in that river hunt with the current going strong (I was told that the dog passed away after or during the hunt, Chiodo is a great guy) I love TRF!!!! lots of birds north of the area.

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup
