Re: Wolf Attack

There was a big study done about 15 years ago on the genetics on some wolves in Algonquin park and other parts of eastern Canada. Results were that the long forgotten red wolf "brush wolf" had made a comeback. They are most definitely resemble a large coyote. I wonder if that's what you guys are see...

You are not going to mistake a wolf for a coyote. Every wolf I have seen is gone quick.

Re: 1st Timer with English Pointer

I am hearing 600 yards max on these Garmins, and thats in prairie conditions. 600 yrds is squat if a dog goes on a deer, he will be out of range before you look at your screen. Garmin needs to at least double the range before i will consider them

If he is the best dog in the field that day he will place. I think the problem will be when there is another dog that has had the same performance and it comes down to chosing a dog with a missing tail. Regardless dont let it get you down, a good dog is a good dog
