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)

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!

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
