This topic has been discussed on the forum before but now is the time. I think it's the best thing you can do for a young dog. Lots of birds (most years) and the chance at multiple contacts and wild birds. Gets a pup fired up and hunting and if far enough along they can come home broke, but for sure conditioned and ready for the bird season. Not sure short of having your own ranch to run them on if there is any other way to get them as far along as a summer up north.

Even at the end of the day road birds give pups a chance to sniff and point wild birds. Here is pup of mine on a ditch parrot on the way back to camp.

I send em every year. Have two in North Dakota now. Another cpl weeks when the young birds get going good and it'll be great exposure for them. Worth the effort and $ for sure.

That's a nice lookin pup Chet. What breeding?

She's by RU Champion Jayhawk Thunder (Covey Rise Offlee Amazin and a nice daughter of Sinbad)..out of a daughter of Erins Wild Justice.

When he gets a dog off the wagon to work a road bird you bet, control is most important in that instance. When working under normal conditions no cc although I'm sure there are circumstances when he might.

Chet I have a very good young 2 yr old Sinbad bitch as well as a 11 mo old Offlee Amazin bitch. The Offlee Amazin bitch is by Dunns Tried N True out of George Hickox Amazin Grace and she's up north now. I bought her from George last December. She's gonna make a fine one.

I like her! I think it’s a great idea to send pups north to train, they’ll be a lot better for it. I just never have been able to justify paying someone else to train my dogs.How hot is it up there right now? I’m guessing they’re in Wyoming? I was in Iowa/Minnesota last week and it was 98F.

Mid 50s in the morning and upper 70s afternoon. Pretty nice, couple weeks back they had some high 80s but been good for a week or so and the forecast is for the same. It was 107 here and I checked Lemmon, SD and it was 77.

Nice! I had a morning several weeks ago in Wisconsin in the 50’s.
