welcome to vegas. If you've read some of my posts, you'd see that I have hunted up north mostly. The duckin is better up there. There are a few places to go down here though. This year will be my first in southern NV, but I have done my fair amount of research and scouting. Overton (logandale) is good. That place is reservation only; therefore, I don't really want to go there. I'm setting my sights on Paranagat NWR near alamo. Takes about 1 hour and 10 min to get there. It is small but doesn't get the hunters that overton gets, and there is no reservations. Hunting days are mon, wed, and saturday only. Really, hunting (waterfowl) is limited here in vegas. You have to drive a ways away to get the best shooting. I am planning on checking out Paranagat in September--wouldn't mind having someone come with me. I too am in need of a hunting partner (here in vegas).
As far as breeders go...I have a Lab pup (6-months). He is from english lines. I got him from a very good breeder up north (gardnerville, NV). THis is my family's third dog from their kennel--all are more than pleased. Really I wouldn't recommend anyone else, but there is a breeder in overton I think. I'd be happy to meet you somewhere in town or at basspro (I live right around the corner). PM me with other questions or respond.
