    After being out of the game for several years, I noticed the increase too. The benefits outweigh the negatives, in my opinion. Not being limited to 2 trips per license like SD, combined with being...

    Well he was supposed to be a Red(that's what I paid for), but would have to say he's more yellow. In the end it really doesn't matter. He's a good bird dog with plenty of drive and skills. Couldn't...
