Survey- Who's runnin' mutts out there?

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to know who's running a mutt out there? You can imagine the looks when I let ol' Pepper out (Border collie/ healer) and put on his vest. The little guy does alright, I'm surprised. I took him out last year just for fun and dang if he didn't flush atleast 30+ pheasants for me. smile.gif I can't wait to take him out this year!

About 10 years ago, we used to have a Rottweiler cross that loved to flush pheasants and then would stand over the down bird. She never did learn to fetch them back to us but it sure did make hunting alot easier when she was with. wink.gif She didn't like duck hunting because of the rain!!

Ya, I run mutts.

Dog #1 is the better bird dog. He is a chocolate lab/?springer spaniel? mix. Basically chocolate lab looking. Little hyper, but will hunt very, very hard. Good pheasant dog. This past year was my first duck hunting, and was very impressed with his retrieves.

Dog #2 is the better house dog, and usually does NOT go hunting. She is a Pit Bull/ Rottwieler mix. She looks like a wimpy Pit Bull. I get some real funny looks from other hunters when out in the field with her. She is the better grouse dog, though. For some reason, those birds are her thing. She won't retrieve one, but sniffs or sees them very well.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
