You MUST make sure your buying a from a good line. It'll be worth it if you have to spend more than $400. Goldens with bad genes WILL get hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia means thousands of dollars and/or putting the dog down. Do the research up front, ask for references, it'll be worth in it the long run.

I think you'll have a hard time finding a well-bred pup for $400. Like Griggs mentioned, a bit more up front can definitely pay off in the long run.

I'm not saying that you can't get a good one for that much, just saying that generally, you'll tip the odds in your favor by buying from a better breeder.

I know of a great field bred golden liter with health clearances I own the Sire and he is Master Hunter and both dogs hunt hard. These puppies are a great price

Put your info in the Puppy Wanted Service and will send you info.

Try contacting David Oleson about upcoming litters. He is a newer hunting Golden Retriever breeder and I have one of his pups from 10/31/07. This dog was exceptional on pheasant this last season for it's first year. Great nose. This dog loves water too. My friend also got a pup and is very happy with it. No health problems. His price was reasonable and he was very professional.

He is doing it the right way IMO.

You can purchase a puppy wanted ad in the puppy for sale forum. I believe it is only $5.95 Breeders and FM members may then contact you and let you know about their pups and/or breeders.

This board is for hunting dog discussions. While we do allow some breeder info such as names and other general info about them to be shared, we do not allow links to them.

Good Luck in your search!

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
