New Dog Trick pics...

7 posts in this topic

I never felt the need to take my dog field hunting while using a laydown blind. But, after feeling guilty the last few weeks for leaving her home I might give this a try..

Last summer I taught Marli a new trick. She caught on fairly quick to simply loading and staying. But it took some time for her to be comfortable with me in with her and the doors closed. Now, we both could take a nap in there grin.gif We've spent countless nights out in the garage training her to "load up" with me and stay there. Now, I can give her the "load up" command and she'll lay in the blind with me for hours. I think I am ready to take her out and try it!

It always amazes me how fast they learn new things.

One thing I would do before committing the work of a full field setup to trying this out for the first time iseeing how she handles you throwing open the doors and shooting with her right underneith you. Hopefully she won't try to get out while you're still taking shots.

Good point PS,

I plan to tie a short leash to the frame near the back of my SUB. This way she'll stay put. I can practice for years in my garage, but things always seem to change out in the field.

I can't see the last two pics, do you have her down by your feet or behind your back? I bring out a field blind for "Frank" right now, but it would be nice just to have him share the blind with me.(Especially when it is 10 degrees outside grin.gif)

Rost,

Looks good, my dog will go into the bottom area, but I have never hunted like that. It just makes me too nervous about his hearing and even worse if he would break at the wrong time.

If I had him in your position, I think I would be getting "kisses" all day though. My wife thought it would be a great trick to teach out 7 week old pup to give kisses. Not such a great trick now that he is 14 months!

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.
