Getting a new pup!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Eric Wettschreck

Hi everyone. Well, next week my new buddy moves in. He's a German shorthair. I've raised puppies before, but never a hunting dog. I went out and got the book "The art of raising puppies." by the Monks of New Skeet. I must say from reading it it sure sounds like these fellas know what they are doing and I'll be following their advice. I know there isn't a book or set of instructions that can possibly cover everything I need to know. I also realize this will not be a field grand master champion. What I don't know is how/when to train a pointer. Anyone have some advice on a book or set of books I can pick up???? Any help would sure be appreciated. Thanks

I've only read two so far, but by far the better would be Gun Dog by Richard Wolters. It's actually geared more towards pointer training than you think....it's old material, but very useful.

      Thanks, I sent him an email, asking for some info. From what I saw of his work, he seems to specialize in birds and mammals. I don't know if I saw any finished fish photos. I'm a pretty picky taxidermy customer and really liked the work done by Bryce at Game Over. He actually did the preserving of a majority of the states panfish for lots of other taxidermists, using his freeze dry method. So I would really like to find somebody else that has a freeze dry system. Could you please send me a pic of your finished crappie? Thanks again.

      Larger lake had good ice yet. I was actually able to drive off the landing and probably could have drove to my spot but the lake is over 100' deep and my spot wasn't far from the landing. Just as I was expecting I got 1 whitefish at about 8:30pm and as the orange colored moon was just starting to peek above the horizon I got a fat 15.25" crappie that will join the other Crappies on my wall.

      On a lake by Cold Spring tonight, walking was a little tough.

      I'm just helping my friend that does it. Last year was real poor. Just starting to run and have about 65 gallons so far.

      As far as I am concerned you can go anywhere you want!! Just keep an eye on snow depth and ice reports!!!😉   Just curious, how much syrup you usually get or do?

      We're on federal land and another spot on county land.

      One year we had someone tap some trees on our property. Dallas trail. Wasn't a big deal to me, thought it was cool!
