I have tomorrow off.I had a choice,go turkey hunting or rig the dogs.I picked rig the dogs.I am just dying to see how the dogs work from the rig.I may put the shock collars on them and test them a little.Then again I probably wont.It is the first time I have them out with me and I dont want to mess up their heads by not turning onto a bear strike,if we get one, but shocking them on off game.What do you guys think?We cant run bears till July 15 and no,I would never dare take the chance !!! My luck I would end up treed in someones backyard.LOL

Man bad situation, don't know what to tell ya, move to Idaho???.....lol. You can basically run bear from April 15-Sept 31 here, you might have to skip around a few units to make it work but thats what it comes down too

Have fun George
I think I would leave the shock collors of for this tripp and just see what they do.Theres plenty of time for corecting latter.
Our Bears are out and about up here.I have been bissier than a one legged man in a arss kikking contest.Ice whent out today and all 7 camps I take care of have called in the last 2 weeks with a ton of work to be done before they come and I haven't been able to get to half of them!! Plus I have fisherman coming next week.Hopefully I will find time to take some hounds for a ride too.Sure wiss that ice stayed in one more week

Rigged about 2 hrs this morning.Never got a bark.Dogs hunted real good from the top of thew box.They have definately been there before.Didnt go out till 730 and it was in the 80's already.Man is it hot here.Never seen anything like it.
Would have got out earlier but went to a comedy show last night.headlined ny Jeff Foxworthy.Also Larry the cable guy and 2 others.What a riot.after listening to them ,no doubt in my mind,I am a redneck !!!!!

Tobey, i got your letter.Thanks alot. my new dog is being shipped next week.On paper,and peoples words, I am in the great position of haveing more dog power for bears than i need. i hope that turns out to be true.Time will tell.This new dog,Boone, is just turning 4 this year.He is a reg walker.The seller says he is the best dog he has ever owned,bar none.My buddy and i have bought 3 dogs from him in the last 2 years and they were all keepers and as advertised.Tobey ,do you know Gordon wilder from N.H. ? i hooked him up with this guy last year.he spent good money to buy a finished top rig dog from him.He told me it turned out to be as good a rig dog as he has ever owned. This is where i got Rock and Whiskey from and I have been totally pleased with both.Ya, I am a little anxious !!!!

No , I dont believe he hunts for the timber co.'s Gatoman.I believe he bear hunts for pleasure only. He does own some logging operations though.he told me that before.

Dont forget guys.I did say on paper.Of course ,on paper, the Red Sox should have won the world series several times in the past but they never have !!!!Time will tell.
Tobey, I just came back from a surprise 40th bday party for Alan C. There was a bunch of different guys there asking about you.I told them you had switched teams and was living in Ogunquit Beach with some old retired ballet dancer named Pierre!!!!
