Need Started Dog


Bird Dog

Recommended Posts

I am trying to help a friend out.He just recently had to put his old Brittany down.
He is looking for a started Dog,so that he does not have to go through the puppy stage and he just does not have the time to devote to properly train it.He would like to stay with a pointing dog,because he mainly hunts Grouse.The dog would also have to be good with kids and be a good house dog.Hopefully this is a enough information and someone can help him out.

Thanks Bird Dog

How much is he looking to spend? I know of a couple started dogs that meet his requirements but are going to run around 2000.00. If you think of all the shots and training and food that have gone into a dog thats 2yrs old its probably a bargain. Let me know.

I will have to get a idea about what he is looking to spend.I do agree with you on adding up the cost of food,shots,training,etc.I am sure that he may have a hurdle to get over with the better half.She is having trouble coping with
the loss of there dog.I think that maybe she is afraid to get another dog and have to go through that process down the road again.What breed of Dog do you have availible?

Thanks

Well I know of about 4 dogs that are all 1 1/2 to 3 yrs old that point grouse. They range is price from 1750-3500. Two are english setters and two are english pointers. The problem that you run into with a request like this is if someone has a dog that points grouse consistently, why would they get rid of it? The only reason that I can think of is that they trial and the dog might not run big enough for them. Personally I wouldn't sell my grouse dog for anything. If you find a dog that can handle wild grouse in Minnesota and not make mistakes, its worth its weight in gold. A place to check out is this site http://members3.boardhost.com/coverdog/ This is a forum for grouse trialers, and like I said earlier you may find one that didn't quite make it on the field trial circut, but make a real nice dog. Wish your buddy luck. Finding a started grouse dog for a reasonable price is tough in these parts.

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.

      Who are these leech and kettle guys going back and forth??? 😉
    • leech~~
      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆
    • Kettle
      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?

      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍

      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?
