Get your dogs ready

Postby duckdog » Sun Jul 23, 2006 10:05 pm

Hey everyone hunting season is'nt far off. Now is the time to be getting your four legged hunting partners in shape. Just be careful of the heat, plenty of water, and shade. I take my lab out to the lake for swimming, and jumping off the dock every chance I get, and for jogs down the gravel roads every morning before work. Warning on the gravel road jogging, watch out for skunks. There seems to be plenty of them out this year.
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work

Hey good to hear from you Horse, how has things been, good I hope. I have been seeing alot of pheasants in the mornings, have'nt seen any partridge yet.

There is 2 dogs in my neighborhood that are in heat right now, and my male is going absolutley bonkers. Seems whenever there is a female in heat, he puts training on the back burner. As my wife would say he is a typical male :tounge: :laughing: .

Have you been up around Rush Lake latley, I have'nt been that way for a while, was wandering how it looked after the draw down, any water make it back in, or did they get the muskrats out.

Good hearing from you !!! :thumbsup:
