I can tell you about Grand River Wildlife Area . If you go early Thanksgiving morning and hunt near the roads and parking areas it can get wild with people not knowing how to be courteous. We have went day after and had good time with dogs.

Maybe that builder was on a time scheldue and wanted to get the trees out the fasest way. You could try to sell to a timber company and neogiate clean up as part of the deal or advertise a cut your own firewood plan where several people could cut either pay you a fee or do shares.

Re: Advice on rescued dog.

Don't worry too much. Whatever commands you learn to use around the house and yard will transfer to the field. My personal thoughts are that a lot of people want to over handle and give too many commands in the field. Just let her hunt and if you need to get her attention use whatever you do at home.

depends on the quality of your pasture. If you have a small amount I suggest an electric fence to separate the field and rotate them, otherwise they will eat an area low and just keep grazing that area for fresh grass leaving the taller.

Find yourself a NEF in 22 caliber and get some #2 Ramset loads. If you don't lose the gun, or the cylinder pin, you will be able to give it to your great grandson.

A lot of dogs are picked up at Ames not because they couldn't finish in an acceptable manner but because the handler knows he does not have a winning performance and decides not to just keep a dog down for the total 3 hrs. Judges should appreciate this attitude.
