Thank you!

I have read the book "Gun Dog" its an old book probably at least 20 years old but there is some good info in there, it just isn't very good at describing how to correct behaviors imo. I also have Dokkens retriever training book that I am about half way through. the dokkens book seems to be a little better at describing things because there are a lot more and better pictures.

Thanks for the replies!

If she does end up being a family dog that's fine with me. This dog was for my wife more so than for me to hunt with. We plan on getting a lab puppy within the next year or two that will be my hunting dog. That said, I still want to make sure to teach her the basics and be able to play fetch with her, she is a retriever so it should be in her blood to do at least that much.

Hi guys,

My wife and I adopted a dog from the local humane society a little over two weeks ago. She is 1 year old and part lab and part Chesapeake. I have been working with her quite a bit and she has sit, down, and stay pretty much figured out. The problem I have been having is when playing fetch with her outside she won't bring the dummy/ball back to me, she comes close to me and takes off running like I should be chasing her. Obviously I want her to bring it back to me and I am not sure what to do. The last time I just tied her to a long rope and threw it and when she came back by my I would tell her to come and if she didn't I would step on the rope and she would flip over and then I would tell her come as I pulled her over to me.

The other problem is that she won't drop and I am not sure how to teach a dog this old how to drop. I have been just grabbing her top jaw and forcing her mouth open but she holds onto it real hard and I am not getting anywhere with the drop command.

Any advice on either of these issues would be appreciated.

I tried a couple different spots for eyes on Sunday without any luck but the water is still really cold yet as it was sitting at about 37-38 degrees. The 10 day forecast calls for 50+ degree temps every day so it should warm up quick. Could actually use a little wind to dry things up and get the ice off the lakes.


Never thought I would hear a North Dakotan wishing for wind lol

If you are using shotgun, a blind is nice but unnecessary. I have always sat against a tree with no cover in front of me and have killed turkeys like that with no problems. I usually try to sit back in the woods a little ways and not right on the edge of the field but have killed turkeys just sitting against a tree out in the open.

I would recommend a turkey vest with a butt pad and back support. They are nice for being mobile which is my favorite way to hunt turkeys. If nothing else, they sell little chairs that are basically just a seat with no backrest but they have longer legs in front and shorter in the back, those are nice for sitting against trees also.

mornings are best but I have killed turkeys at just about anytime of the day. afternoons can be good because they are looking for a new hen to breed after they are done with their morning hens.

Your going to want rubber boots for sure. waterproof pants are nice but I like the quietest camo pants I can find. Jake and hen decoy are always a good combo. try learn the mouth call, especially if you will be hunting alone. A slate call is also a must have for me. I do 90% of my calling with a slate call.

Hope that helps. Good Luck!

Gunder, I would consider driving a bit farther north to long point or rocky point. Ice will be good there long after the ice goes out on four mile bay. Zipple may even be an option but the bay may be sketchy by then, who knows.

Also, I am planning on fishing out of one of those two places on the 18th so I can give an ice update when I get back.

Thats cool! i have never had anything like that happen but...
I was fishing on LOW in a flip over house a while ago and my buddy had his rod laying on the ice with a bobber in the hole, something took off with his hook and the rod went right down the hole. About a half hour later, I hooked into a good one, fought it for quite a while and we saw it swim by the holes a few times. got him up and it was a 35" northern. I went to take my hook out of his mouth and noticed another line coming out of his mouth... so I grabbed it and my buddy says, hey theres my hook! the line was still attached so we started pulling it out of the water and pulled his rod back through the hole!
