My father in law took both his GSP's to Cannon River Kennels just west of Cannon Rivers and was satisfied with their training program. If you do a google search on "Cannon River Kennels", it will come as the 1st site to click on.

Tony Roettger at Roettger Ridge in North Branch.

Bob Zenisek at Lynch Kennels in Hugo

Mark Haglen at Pine Shadow in Brainerd.

All three are well known and respected in spaniel circles. They all train english springers and english cockers. All 3 train gun dogs for hunting. Some of them also do field trials. They all have varying pricing structure. Some of them prefer to have you leave your dog for a month or two. Others are willing to customize a training program with you. You might just call and talk to all of them and see what is the best fit for you. Hope this helps.

minnow I am going through the same thing with my springer. I got a lot of good recomendations back in Feb I think if you do a search. I ended up choosing Wings and Whistles in Watertown. A lot of the good trainers are booked a ways out so get on the horn right away. The soonest I could get into a 2week intro program was in late May and I made the appt about 6weeks ago.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
