I've been camped in comfort at the "Llama Farm"

Tomorrow morning I drag up and head to Sweetgrass, Mt.

Yes the chicken hunting was excellent. I did get onto some Ruffed also.

Don't know if there was enough snow to move the elk.

Re: When to switch from basic obedience to hunt training

If the dog is a fetching machine; why would you want or need to force fetch? Or maybe you don't understand the term "force fetch" It can be pretty extreme and not fun at all.

Don't forget the number one command to learn is WHOA. Once your dog will lock up solid to this command all else will follow.
