I found glass and bob-wire under the water in areas,plus all the other crap that is out there.
Hope the rest of the season is accident free.................and you can get out soon.

I'm really glad you bud is doing well. My lab has some eye goop going since Sunday, but she seems to not have as much this morning. That Stillwater water is pretty nasty.

But here is what happened....Near the end of the hunt he started licking his right front paw and it looked okay. On the walk out he started limping so I checked for stickers etc and it looked okay. The limping got worse and at the truck one of his toes was very swollen and his paw was blood red. He would not let me touch it all with in an hour. I though he was bitten by something. What scared me was how bad it looked so fast.
Luckily an other hunter and a game warden mentioned Marsh foot to me. The G.W. said his partner's dog almost died from it. I got him to the vet with in a few hours. They gave him some antibiotics and I have 3 different things to give him. There is what looks like a small cut between his toes and looks to me like the source of eveything. His foot looks just like your picture. If he lets me I'm going to try and shave his foot. The vet tried with no luck.
Dakota is acting like himself and he is slowly walking better. I am waiting for it to start looking better. I might try the salt soak on him
Whatever it is I hope Dakota and your dog get better soon.
