    Default Ice Warning

    It's getting to that time of year that the ponds and sloughs are starting to ice over. So I thought I would just post this as a friendly reminder to be carefull when hunting around water. If a rooster flies out over the ice you might want to just let it go. If you drop it on the ice you know where your dog is headed and if he/she breaks through it could be disaster for the both of you if you attempt to rescue the dog. I think last year in South Dakota that we lost 2 hunters who tried to save their dogs when they went through.

    I know there is a lot less water around this year but still enough to be a potential problem. I tend to stay away from iced over water this time of year until I'm 100% certain the ice is strong enough to support the dog. And I don't think you can ever be 100%. I've gone through ice when it's a minus 30 outside.

    Better to be safe than be sorry!

    When you think you are smarter than your dog, ask your self who cleans up who's poo.
