Finally the Big Day

9 posts in this topic

The day finally came and my new hunting partner has come home! We were excited to see her after seeing her days after she was born. Picked her up Friday and have had nothing but fun each day....I know, I know, it's early and I"m sure it will wear off wink.gif Our little GSP was the runt and of the litter, but shows a lot of love and companionship. Still trying to build her independence, but that will come in time.

I'll post some pictures when I get them downloaded.

This dog business is a lot of work grin.gif I get home and all I do is play, play, play with the pup. I figure the more time I put into her now the more I'll get out of her in the field.

Here are a few pictures of Reigny, our newest family member!

My pup was the runt of the litter and she is the best dog i have ever had. She just turned a year old and at 3 minths old was pointing pheasants. She is a pointing lab. She is a great dog and you are doing it right by all the play time. Here is one thing you MUST DO. Take your pup on a walk every night. Expose her to new things and let her go discover things like tall grass creeks and the like. also make her overcome a few simple obstacles. It sure builds confidence in a Runt. Once they learn they can overcome they are unstopable.

Cap,

Congrats! I know we talked about breeders way back after you decided on going with a Shorthair. Where did she come from?

Just curious as that saddle marking makes her look so much like the shorty I lost last February that it brought a tear to my eye.

Irv,

I do remember talking to you early in my search for a GSP breeder. I went with a place in Rice Lake, WI.

Reigny is her name and she is going to be 12 weeks old this coming Tuesday. I can't believe we have had her for about 1 month now! Every day is a learning day for her and I, but we make if fun learning.

I've been soaking up all the info. in this forum and reading, re-reading the info. here about puppies. I want to make a good hunting dog so making sure to do the right vs. the wrong things.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
