The sportdog, tritronics, and dogtra all are good collars. I have lost a dogtra hand held in november in northern sd, went all winter and spring was mowed and bailed and found. It still worked. I use tritronics to train retrievers. Better fine tuning for corrections on pro models. For bepper collars...
If there are hunters that plan on grouse hunting on or around the Fort Pierre National Grasslands for the 2012 season it opens September 15th. If still needing lodging check out medicinebreaks.com. located just out side of presho. Two houses can be renting out per house or per room depending on numb...
i believing in giving my dogs 1 bird season before i introduce the ff. depending on time of yeaqr of litter the age may vary. EvanG had good advice. keep in mind if your not going to be through the process before a hunting season starts, probably do not want to start.
I shoot the winchester x2 and like it but it is heavy and if i had a choice i would go with the benneli inertia system. in all the semi auto's i have been around it is usually the gas systems that jam most often. if just upland hunting or do not need the 3 1/2 chamber the monefeltro is a fantastic g...
great point about not letting dog get bored. short and sweet. try and track down a pigeon pull flight feathers and see what he does with life movement and smell. i am betting he will dig it. same thing applies STOP before he does. aquiring a 2 year old dog not only has an adjustment period for you b...
when you are starting go back to heel and while he is heeling take a step forward before turning. he should follow and turn with you. do 10 to 20 minutes of this every day until he his traveling and turning with you. you may need to walk more than one step at first. make him successful following and...

sure a dog can be a wash out, but i don't think 4 months is at all an adequate time to judge that. seriously i can't fathom making the call at 4 months whether my dog is going to hunt how i want. i have my hands on numerous gun dogs of various breeds including flushers and pointers and most mature a...

Go to U.S. forest service website and find the link that will get you to the maps. they have a wonderful map of the ft. pierre national grasslands. one of the most detailed maps you will find out there. it is only $10 and can be ordered off line or picked up in ft. pierre at the u.s. forest service ...
as an amueter trainer i have to agree that having options and using them to your benefit would only be a plus. Its all bout repetitions with as little of pressure as needed. I took a 2 year old 80lb lab that had been living in kennel with 4 siblings and he was alpha male. I could not control him wit...
I reccomend smartfetch by evan graham as well. No matter whos method you use stick to it and be consistant. Feathers are not a natrual thing for a dog to enjoy. since you have shot over the dog in past get a clipped wing bird of your choice and tease the dog up and let the chase begin. Whatever you ...

if your coming west you might as well go to the birds. Sd has the birds. Central ND does to, but a farther trip.

I have got a picture of about 150 to 200 prairie chickens feeding in wheat stuble on a miserable december day. the last weekend of sd season is was around -20 and shot limit of grouse/prairie chickens and pheasants. last year i harvested about 2 prairie chickens for every 1 grouse taken. that was fr...
South Dakota public land from the eastern border west past pierre is good hunting. the james river valley from mitchell up through aberdeen is hot but a lot of flooding this year. If crops are out find the biggest chunks of public and go. Brookings area is good if crops are out. lost of area. timed ...

hello how are you today? the advice and reccomendations i will give you is not right to all people but it is my opinion. It is easier to build a dog up than break it down. with your pup still being exactly that, a pup, i would back off the sit stay and let her chase. tease her up with it and then th...

I live in sioux falls south dakota and spend a great majority of my time back around my home town of pierre sd chasing pheasants, shaptail grouse, prairie chickens, and all the waterfowl i can get under. grew up around labs my whole life and still enjoy hunting and training them, but my passion is i...
