I was in the Marines at the time and we weredoing a lot of flight operations through the fjords. What a sight to jip around over the water. It was soooooo blue (looked like they had a ...

LOL! I have no idea where to get lessons on whistling now. I got schooled by the cute little girl w/ freckles down the street when I was about 10yr old! Trial and error may work, but could take a while.... Good luck with both.

LOL, very cool video. I've done similar a few times. The dogs usually will look over their shoulder if the bird takes off without being brought back down, with a look as if to say "ah.... what are you doing? I'm holding up my end, where were you?! hmph! Amature."

Been tied up, but had a few minutes to check in and saw this thread. 1-Training is never a "finished" deal, for anything, ever. Regardless of what it is, there is almost always a chance to a "relapse", just depends on the time, place, circumstances. That said... especially with recall training, "yar...

Cool article, and nice pic. Shame about the decline of woodcock. Thank goodness for Woodcock Limmited and Ruff Grouse Society making the efforts they are to keep this bird a viable game species.

I was trying to stay out of this thread :lol: :roll: But, c,mon CJ, saying the 30-06 > .308... OK, for all around hunting yes, but precision shooting? No way, to get better you have go to a .50. 8) And for what it is worth, for hunting I prefer short actions over long any day, talking bolt actions ...

Oh, and 30-06 is a little more versitle that .308, but it's generally more painful to shoot (if its a bolt action that is) as it's a little more snotty round. But in an auto (like an M1 Garand) it's a dream to shoot.

Just saw this string. I'm a +1 for the RCBS. Got a question though after seeing that this is your first rifle, gotta ask what it is? I'm a big 30cal fan and my M1A in .308 is one of my favorites to shoot. So one of the reasons for asking about what the gun is, is that as a few of the gys suggested, ...

HT & FT is addictive, and that's an understatement. I'll toss in the word frustrating too (from time to time), and expensive.... and time consuming. But.... that all said, I'm going to NM this month, CA next month, one here in March, and then back to CA at the end of March for two more. Maybe CO in ...

I'd say mostly genetics, but training, exposure, and social skills have a lot to do with if/how those genetics play out. A pup out of big running all age blood lines can/will shorten up if it's had a rough start to life and then is gets reigned in constantly by its owner/trainer. Also, if they are o...

Great Post CJ...thanks for taking the time that I did not have this morning when I originally posted. Another note....SD (Sport Dog) bought Innotek last year and as of Feb o7 were still up in the air as to what to do with that line of units. I'd personally steer clear of the Innotek...I have one......

+1 for what Helen said. e-collars are not for foundations training, they are to enforce/assist with commands that the dog has already established that it understands. That said.... (and I didn't read all the way through the thread, so sorry if some of this is a repeat), SD is a reputable brand. As i...

Jen, +1 for Helen's post, but I know that Boise is pretty good hike from your neck of ID. They do, however, have some "training days" that they hold for about a month or two in concert with GSPCI in the spring. Not sure what it'll be like this year, but before I left ID last year, they had been alte...
