Hey Tim!

Definetly would love the company! I don't know when exactly but I will drop you an e-mail or post something when I plan on going. And you drop me a line if you think you might go too.

I'd like to get Daisy out at least a few times this winter and try to sharpen her and I up. I don't remember the guys name but I'll figure it out from the ad. How many game farms can be around Glendorado? I'll keep you posted. Thanks!

Hey Spinach!

Great! Sounds like a plan. Are you guys available at all during the week? Or are you strictly weekends? This next weekend I'm out of town; but the following weeks are fairly wide open. Looking forward to it! I'll e-mail you both when I figure out what I can do.

Hey Guys - sounds like it is time for a Glendorado Gang reunion. I was at the farm Friday afternoon. The farm is very huntable this time of the year. They have cut some new walking paths in the wooded area behind and north of the barn and all the boggy areas are frozen over and walkable. Only standing corn is to the southwest.

The birds are not has big as they were earlier in the season but the ones I saw Friday were decent in size and very good flyers. I can hunt during weekdays from 10:30 am until 2:00 pm.

When you call the office you will be talking with Mike. He takes appointments and manages the operation during the weekdays. When you call the cell phone number you will be talking to Rick, the owner. Let me know when you want to get together and I will try and make it...would be nice to get together and see how all the dogs have progressed since last fall!

Hey WW!

This Friday may work for me for a 10:30 to 2:00 hunt. I will check it out and re-post tomorrow. Would be great if you, Tim, Spinach, as well as anyone else interested could swing something on short notice.

Friday high 26 degrees, wind from southeast 8 mph and a chance for snow showers. Sounds like perfect pheasant hunting weather to me! Count me in for three birds. I drop the kids off at school at 9:00 am and can be at the farm by 10:15 am. I need to leave the farm no later than 2:00 pm to make it back to Woodbury in time to pick up the little rascals...who else is in? I will call Mike Wednesday with hunter and bird count. Glendorado was running a special earlier in the season - 10 birds for $100. Not sure if that is still valid or not...regular price is $12 per bird. Remember no scratch hunting allowed!

What the heck, I'm in for three as well. If its OK with you guys, I might just bring the video camera and not carry a gun. So if you know someone that would like to shoot, please feel free to bring them along. With these puppies coming I want to get some video of the dog working, to show potential puppy buyers what they are in for. What time do you guys want to meet up there?

Setterguy - bringing a camera sounds like a good idea. Thought Kenai was going to have a litter? How far along is she, when are the pups due? Hopefully a couple more of the Glendorado Gang will read this post and have nothing better to do that day and will join in on some fun. I plan on being at the farm around 10:15/10:30 am. Hey Tim, Spinach and BDR lets hear from you guys!

Well the breeding went well, got two breedings in. It didn't look good for the first couple days. She got pretty aggressive with him and he was reluctant, but we finally got it done. I am pretty sure she is pregnant, she has been getting a little bigger and acting like a total goof ball. The pups should be on the ground around the 7-10th of February, so she is still fine to hunt. Some say its actually a good thing to hunt a pregnangt female. Something similiar to reading to your unborn child I guess! See you guys there at around 10:30.

I didn't even bother asking BDR. I am almost positive he will be at or on his way to Winnie. There is probably some others with that conflict too...... Of course, you could get in a short hunt on the way up...... Hmmmmmm? wink.gif

PS I'll be there around 10:15.

Setterguy & MM - just got off the phone with Rick a few minutes ago and he said the farm was filling up fast for Friday. I ask him to save a field for us and that we would be there about 10:00-10:30 am. He had to raise his bird prices to $13 from $12 each. He explained that the law of supply and demand rules this time of year regarding game bird pricing. We still have room for a couple of more if anyone else is interested.

Hey Guys!

My hunt tomorrow is hanging precariously by a thread. The little guy appears to have croup. I'm bringing him in this morning and getting it checked out. I will let you guys know later today if I got to cancel. frown.gif

Setterguy - bringing your gun is a good idea considering the way I've been shooting lately. I am still trying to round-up another shooter or two for tomorrow I will post an update later this evening.

Well Drew has got a temp of 101 and has been sleeping half the day and crying the other. His Doc is seeing him tomorrow at 10:45. So I am officially out.

What can you do? I feel bad for Drew, Daisy, and me in that order. Have fun guys! I'll make it next time (I hope).

MM - we will dedicate the first bird to Drew, the second to Daisy and the third to you. Duty calls and family comes first and foremost. Maybe I'll bring the digital camera along and will post some pics over the weekend! I plan on at least one outing a month - weather permitting...hopefully we all can get together in Feburary.

Don't know if you'll get this or not, I have a gunner for today, so I can concentrate on the cameras. Leaving in a minute, see you there.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....
    • Wanderer
      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.
