One of the or the main keys to picking a good bird dog is picking the right litter. Some people say "I got the best pup in the litter"- Well most of the time that means absolutely nothing. I happen to have a fine shorthair. I told myself I'd drive clear across the country to find the best dog.
I found her in Iowa. Do some research and you will come through. Just remember to do your yardwork with live birds. When you hunt over a great dog, more has gone into that than just a pick. Get a good book and keep the training consistant. I'm no expert, but I believe I did everything expertly. There is nothing like seeing your dog shining and running circles around other dogs in the field. That's when it all pays off! And she comes home with me! GL it's fun- -NS-

Hey I have it for you! You may need to travel a bit but believe me it is well worth it!!! I bought a german Short hair from a guy who now lives in the Staples area. He breeds soft mouth and retrieve as well as a bit smaller than average (great for in the house). I am not kidding, I have sence had the oppertunity to hunt with his mother, sister and brother on many occasions and am very pleased! He will be breeding my dogs (gunner) sister (lilly) in march. There great grandfather was featured on the cover of Field and Stream in jan of 97. These dogs come from excellent blood lines. If you have any questions and are serious let me know. you can contact me at [email protected] or [email protected] The owner also offers training for a low price as well. These dogs are priced at about 4-450. Well worth the drive. Gunner is a house dog and I have a 4 year old and a 19 mo old, who will not leave him alone and he has never showed a bad side toward any one or any thing.

Hi,

A good friend of mine purchased a German Shorthair (he has hunted upland and waterfowl with excellent success) from John Secord/Manvel, ND. He lives about 10 miles north of Grand Forks, ND. He has very good bloodlines and is very involved as a breeder. See address below>>>Good Luck

Before you buy a Shorthair you should talk with Phil Mathiowetz of Windwalker Kennels in Goodhue. Here's his website http://www.windwalkerkennel.com/ He is a wealth of information on the breed.

He has a big string of dogs and should be able to provide you with a dog that will suite your needs. If he doesn't have what you want he'll probably refer you to someone who does. He also guarantees his dogs. He's got big runners, medium runners, and short range dogs. He also has about 304 litters due in the March timeframe. His dogs run around $500 and you get what you pay for. Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

Just curious, because I dont know much, heh, heh.,
But why do you do this to the tail on a pointer.
I'm assuming docked means cut shorter,
I seen another guy with one like this, but never bothered to ask as I thought it maybe got it caught in something.

we docked it because that is the way the german standards are for the breed. It is suppose to be like a finger pointing while hunting.

      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.
