Re: Preventing Heart Disease through Breeding

Hey let me try another way to explain? Would you breed dogs w crooked kegs or bad bites? Most guys wouldn’t. If it cropped up time n again we’d know there was an issue. The pups should be fixed or not bred as well as the parents or parent if we suspected one or the other was carrying a gene. Idk how...

Re: Preventing Heart Disease through Breeding

You can go lots through beeeding. This is the reason for line breeding, inbreeding and outcrossing. Breeding should not be “just because he n I have good dogs”. When you line breed for instance (line breeding and inbreeding are only a degre) you breed similar dogs bloodline wise to enhance/set trai...

Re: Dog killed posusm

Possums aren’t going out of the way to mess w your dog. I’d bet he initiated it. GSP originate partially from hounds. If it was me I’d break him off anything you didn’t want him to mess with. Nothing worse than trying to hunt one game and you’re dog is hunting something else. If he didn’t get bit I’...

For guys who just don’t understand

Re: New rifle

I have MS which causes a slight hand tremor. A bull barrel helps compensate for that. I hunt from box stands, the extra weight isn't a problem so I want a heavy rifle that I can hold steady on target. On our property I can have shots out to 200-300 yards, or more, and I've made all of those shots w...

Re: male or female puppy

There are pros n cons to all dogs and deviations from there. Seems many fix dogs. That being said imo it won’t matter. Box em at night if you’re worried about it marking your kitchen. Every dog if you ask me should be crate trained anyway.
Myself all I keep is females and I don’t fix em.

Re: The Garmin Alpha; An Expensive Mistake

Idk guys. Best thing I ever bought and I’ve had all sorts of collars. Running bird dogs is typically lower impact than rabbit dog cover. I put the unit on my neck on a harness. My lead is across my shoulders. I use the clip on my gizmo vest to attach to leash so it doesn’t flip and I’m good. Ran 5-1...

Medically I was forced to back off that some recently but hopefully in the near future it’ll be back to normal there. Looking fwd to learning the...

Re: 28 Gauge O/U, the Hot New Thing?

I’ve used a 28 for prob 30 years. I initially bought it to challenge myself. It’s not a challenge. The main thing I noticed was I did not tear game up as badly. The weight factor needs consideration. I have a 28 Pigeon and rarely use it. It’s too light. I typically use a Browning 525. It’s heavier a...

If I may, no one knows me so I hope no one is offended but the sticks on red labels drop quite a bit. Before that gun is considered you need to shoulder one n see if you get a cheek weld

Re: Black Bear encounters when training?

Think you’re sweating it too much. Where I live they’re everywhere and we can’t carry firearms except hunting. I run all year and never had a problem
