I have heard they were pretty good hunting dogs. But wouldnt you feel like a woosie letting the dog out of the truck hunting with your friends.
I can already see it, for christmas my dad would buy me pink instead of orange.

I was just telling a coworker this morning when we saw a couple of those large Poodles.I believe they were very popular pointing dogs back a couple hundred years in England. The royalty hunts? I will not be taking a dog hunting thats wearing a sweater and has a bow in it's hair. I have also heard that Poodles are a very smart trainable dog. I think I'll stick with my GSP's.

I think what your friend probably got was a Pudelpointer. They are a dog that originated and still are fairly popular in Germany as a combination upland and water dog. They are not all that common in the US and are probably most similar to a German Wirehaired Pointer in appearance. Is it worth $1k? Not for me. I'll take my Brittanys any day.

I believe I am the guy Spoofer refered to. The name is PUDELPOINTER and there is some debate as to whether the breed resulted from a cross between the Standard Poodle and the English Pointer or the Old German Water Pudel and the English Pointer. In either case, the dog doesn't look like a poodle or wear ribbons in it's hair. It looks like a liver colored German Wire Haired Pointer. I bought the dog because PP's are one of the only breeds you can get that are bred strictly for hunters based on their hunting characteristics and temperament. They aren't AKC recognized, so they haven't been spoiled by show breeders like many others have. Most reputable breeders will only sell a dog to a hunter and they have a reputation as both an outstanding hunting dog and companion, with above average intelligence and loyalty to their handlers. They also happen to score consistantly higher than any other breed in the NAVHDA (North American Versatile Hunting Dog Assoc) field trial tests and are proven in the field on wild birds. I'm getting my dog from www.cedarwoodgundogs.com which is owned by Bob Farris, one of the top breeders in the country.

Is the dog worth $1000? I don't know for sure since I won't have mine until spring. However, I am convinced they are as good as they say they are and I've talked to dozens of people that have either owned, judged, or trained them and nobody has ever told me they anything bad about them. It depends on how much having a really great hunting dog is worth to you and what type of hunting you expect to do with it.

The price you pay for your dog is the least expensive part of owning one. It is always better in the long run to buy a dog from a well recognized breeder and pay the extra price. I payed a very hefty amount for my lab from Alma bottoms pointing lab kennel but he has been worth every penny. If your dog makes you happy how can you put a price tag on that. Best of luck with the puddel pointer hope it works out.
P.S. Looks like a neat looking breed

The weekend before Thanksgiving, I hunted with a pudelpointer. It was a great dog to work with. It had a great nose and was a great looking dog. Another up side to this breed is that they don't shed. Hope you enjoy your new hunting buddy.

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.

      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.

      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.
