    Hey everyone.  Since everyone is having to reregister I thought this might be a good chance for everyone to "reintroducte" themselves.  Tell us who you are and where you hunt.

    I'm Jon Ballard from Janesville, WI I hunt where ever and when ever I get a chance.  I hunt some preserves here in Southern Wisconsin and try and make it to Iowa or SD at least once per year to chase roosters.  I'm a lab guy.

    Hey guys and gals.....

    I am Matt G. from N. Salt Lake Utah. I typically meet up with my father in Oregon to chase wild rooster, chukars and huns. I have yet to hunt in Utah since I have been here, mostly because I hear of how scarce the bird numbers are and I don't have a dog to myself. I would say that I am a GSP guy. My father has been in the process of starting up a kennel and he has 6 GSP's at the moment, two of which were born in late April of this year. Next breeding will definitely find a pup in my home!

    Howdy Fellow Hunters, My name is Bob. I'm from Spokane, WA and have been huntingt all upland birds for 55 years. I have a Brittany that is will hunt his 9th season this fall. He cut his teeth on Pheasant. So they are his favorite bird, making them mine as well. I shoot a 20 and a 28 gauge and enjoy shooting both. I usually hunt around Eastern Washington 5 days a week and alone most of the time.....Bob

    Tarheel Blue checking in. I'm down here in the southeastern corner of God's Country, only 173 miles from Chapel Hill, 45 miles to Myrtle Beach and 42 miles from Intersate 95 (which by the way, you Yankees need to know that I-95 does run North now also!).

    Mostly quail hunt with a few buddies and snort a lot of gun powder on the Sporting Clays courses. I have met in person Pork n' Beans, Jon Ballard & Dogpower while passing through the Great Cheese State in 2008 and have also met Canadian Brady-24-7 two years in a row shooting in the Palmetto Classic Sporting Clays Tournament. I enjoy shooting them dang birds that go "Quack, quack!" too.

    I like dogs that listen, keeps our secrets, and won't keep count of my missed birds. I believe in the good people of this country and like-minded citizens who stand up for what is right and good, regardless of political affiliation or ambitions.

    I honor and support the Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, as well as the law enforcement personnel who provide security for our Great Nation. I believe in God and Country and am a supporter of the Tar Heels of the University of North Carolina.

    That's about it. Ya'll come on down and we'll put a pot of frog leg stew on the fire. Dang right.

    Bailey Blue here. I hail from Johnstown,PA and love long walks...oops wrong forum
    Seriously, I have a blast here in western, PA huntin' anything that the game commission allows me too, as well as sneaking out of the state to scare game up elsewhere..
    I have a 1 year old GSP that blew me away during her rookie season, and we can't wait to get out there soon.
    My soon to be five year old daughter accompanied me on some hunts last year, and has her gear all set on a hanger in the closet for the upcoming season. The best was last year when, immediately at my shot, from behid me I heard her yell "Yeah!!!" as feathers went up and the bird went down. I'm not sure who's grin was bigger!
    I'm a huge Steelers fan, and love the Pens come playoffs. The Pirates...well, I'd love to love them too, but...

    I'm Shane, I live in eastern Kansas and hunt all winter then I turn to bass fishing and shooting sporting clays tournaments in the upland off season.  I have owned a lot of different breeds of pointing dogs but as I get older I'm becoming a pointing lab fan.  I'm training a pup now for the upcoming season.

    Buckeye here, I live in the foothills of the Cascades, east of Seattle. Grew up in the great state of Ohio, hence the nickname. We'll see what the real Buckeyes do this fall, I have high hopes.

    Anyway, I've been only doing this for a year, but I love it. Love it so much I went out and got me a Brittany, she's a wonderful little girl, and I can't wait to go again. I spent a lot of time in Central Washington, near Yakima and Moses Lake, looking for quail mostly. I won't hesitate to shoot a pheasant if the little one points it. I also went out and bought myself a 20 Guage Benelli, boy is it easy to shoot.

    The one thing I haven't figured out yet is how to excuse my lousy shooting. But I'm working on it!

    Welcome Buckeye. Come in, pull up a chair, sit a spell and feel free to chime in when the mood hits you. There are some ornery old critters around here like that "Bob" dude and watch out for that feller named "Pork n' Beans."

    PS...You're one of the minority of native Buckeyes (aka Yankees) who migrated West, instead of coming down here to Tarheel-ville and setting up a homestead on the golf course (aka Damn Yankees). What's the matter, your Governor give everyone a tax break if they agreed to leave the Buckeye State or what??

    Wes H. from Albuquerque.   Looking forward to the season.  Lily says she is ready (I think she and I have a lot of work to do).  Looking to make two trips to Kansas this year.

     I guess since Grouchy was taken, I probably should have taken Grumpy.   Hahahaha.

    Thanks for the warm welcome all, even TB who's trying to keep me out of N.C. I've spent my fair share of time there too, mostly on the Outer Banks. I've left the East Coast behind though, too hot and humid for my tastes. No plans to be a "Damn Yankee", where I live now is just wonderful.

    It could be worse TB, you could live in Florida, AKA "the southern peninsula of Ohio"

    Hi, dogpower here. I used to hang out on the old Gambirdhunts site and added my 2 cents worth once in a while even if it was only worth a fraction of that.

    For my day job I am a self employed engineer with a consulting firm doing electrical design for construction projects. For my other day job I run a small hunting preserve in southern Wisconsin (www.hillsidesprings.com)

    I like all hunting dogs (even those pesky little English Setters), but I prefer to own mostly Labs. I have six Labs and one GSP who considers himself to be an honorary Lab. I enjoy hunting, but I really enjoy working with the dogs and watching them do their stuff in the field.

    Just like Tarheel, I believe in God and Country and hold the highest regard for those that serve our country in the military and/or law enforcement. Unlike Tarheel, I have respect for “damn Yankees.” I’m a bit of a red neck – nuthin’ beats sittin’ around a neighbors hay field watching the annual Fulton Township lawn mower races and chowin’ down on some turtle stew. Win or lose, I’m a die hard Packer and Wisconsin Badger fan.

    I generally like to look on the lighter side of things. My messages and replies often reflect that, so if you’re not sure how to take something I posted and forgot to put in a smiley face, go ahead and add it.

    DP 'bout time you showed up! Welcome back, we've missed you. Need you around to keep that Pork character straight.

    Buckeye, what DP ain't telling you is that I spent my time up there on the tundra, albeit briefly when Castro opened up his prisons and encouraged all of those fine citizens to head North. While there I became fond of the local 2 legged deer population, the hills of Sparta, the liquid refreshments and the abundance and variety of  cheese, curds and summer sausage. Course, Uncle Sam decided to rescue us thin-blooded souls before old man Winter arrived and returned us to our western outposts in that God forsaken land called California. Who knows, I might have woundup related to DP, Pork or Gamebirdhunts (Jon) had I stayed through the winter of 1980!!

    Don't let DP scare you. I like Yankees as long as they mind their P's and Q's while they're down here below the Mason-Dixon and don't drive our tax rates up any higher or turn good huntable land into another golf course! One of my good Yankee buddies is my side-kick on the sporting clays courses and we even bird hunt together, while I remind him that he is walking on hallowed ground. I guess we tolerate Ohioans down here because native Buckeyes Orville & Wilbur made history down here at Kittyhawk, therefore making the great Tarheel State the "First in Flight."

    Anyways, we got a good diverse crew on the forum here and believe it or not, every once in awhile we stumble across some useful information and even make a friend or two, regardless of nationality....er, state of residence!

    Welcome "Ya'll."

    Just thought I'd drop a line to let those who know me that I'm still lurking about. Glad to see so many of the familiar members from the old site. I'm Jeff and joined the site about 4 or 5 years ago. I've hunted with several of the WI members a time or two and believe one of the groups photos is still pasted around the site.
     

    Hey "small brown and white brit from Oregon,WI" - If your owner doesn't get you out anymore than he has the past 2 seasons, pack up your stuff and go wait at the Kwik Trip station on the north side. I'll give you a ride up this way and put you on some birds. Bring that dusty, rusty 20ga. O/U along since that isn't getting out either.(XXOOXX to PnB).

    Swendels - As a former "Mod" on the old site I'm telling you that changing your username is not cool and perhaps even against the rules. Did I read that you have a new job? Maybe even one that requires more output than price checking the new Brownings at every dealer inside 200 miles of Poynette. Congrats on the new family member. Good work dude.

    J.Ballard - Excellent work on the new site and thanks to all who helped put it together. Is that old chocolate dog still sitting next to you? Mine took a turn for the worse in May and had to be put down. Very sad day for us as the kids weren't ready for her to go since she had always been here for them. Good thing the yellow replacement was able to fill in right away. I guess I'd better stick with "Browndog" even though she's gone since I just told Scott what I thought of his name change. Are you the only person in J'ville left with a job? Seems like it has been all bad news from down there in the past few months.

    DP - good to hear you're still kicking. Hope to drop in sometime this fall/winter.

    Hey BD, good to hear from you again. My sympathies regarding the loss of your webbed foot buddy. We put down our 14 year old Dalmatian in December and  I still miss seeing her in my rear view mirror, enjoying the wind as she rode in the back of my truck, sticking her spotted face out in the breeze. I can relate to your decision to let your buddy go in peace. Never an easy thing to do.

    Welcome back,

    Wow, we're getting a nice mix of old and new!

    Hubsker and Brian, welcome to the site.  If you've got a question, we'll try to answer it.  Probably not correctly or without sarcasm, but at least you know it will be in fun.  If you have information and insite, we're always open for filling our empty heads.  As most will attest, mine is more empty than others so please, fill me up!

    DP and Browndog, great to have you back.  DP, good luck with the gamefarm and your dogs.  Browndog, I owe you breakfast and I'd love to hunt with you again this fall if you're open for it.  I'd ship you my dog, but you'd probably ship her back..C.O.D.!  Are you still making the trips down here on occassion?  Love to have coffee or breakfast with you if it works into your schedule.

Looking forward to another trip to S. Dakota this fall.  Also not sure why my screen name comes up nodog1 it should be modog1 named after my 11 yr old yellow lab morrison.  Guess I will have to check in with the moderators.

    nodog1(aka-modog1, aka-Tom), we've got a very active member from I believe the upstate portion of NY. I can't say as I've ever seen a picture of a Sprinador, but I'd like to. Post a pic and post away. Welcome.

    SEMNSHORTHAIRS, you live in a pretty part of the state (with some good grouse hunting I've heard). But it sounds like you get to see some pretty good hunting land elsewhere too. It's good to have another voice on the forum. Please feel free to jump in with both feet (or keyboard).

    nodog, yup you're correct.  I apologize for not remembering  you.  I'm in my early 40's with the body of a 90 year old and the memory of , umh, what was I talking about again?

    I'm Jav (pronounced like "behave") I'm from SE Washington state. I have a 2 year old English Setter named Fritz who is bird crazy. I hunt a few reserves and any public land I can get on. I started as a kid when pheasants were so plentiful where I grew up you didn't need a dog. I now hunt mostly to watch my dog work and pheasant are fewer in between. We do have some sites here that have them released and we find quail but not like the good ol' days. My other passion is chasing fish with a fly rod, trout mostly but Steelhead and Salmon as well. Best wishes to all of you this coming season, I look forward to reading your stories.

    TB,
    I have been on the site for about two years now, under swendels. When I went to the new site it asked me to sign up for the site. So I put my info in and it would not let me use my old login info, so I had to change it. So Lucialab and Swendels are one in the same. The first time I found the site, I found it via a search engine for pheasant hunting in WI. It brought me to the old site and the rest is history

    Thanks for welcome. I look forward to learning and sharing on this website. I'm already itching to get out. I was fortunate enough to take my dog out and hunt a reserve last week. My dog had 6 great points and retrieves. I'm heading out again tomorrow as we both are getting the itch.

    Best wishes to you in the 09-10 season.

    markvan, welcome aboard. It appears you don't let much grass grow under your feet! With a new black lab pup hopefully those feet have track shoes on 'em too. 

     

    Fill us in on the details and add your 2 cents up to $1 total....awe, never mind say what you want, when you want...within "respectable" reason of course.

    I'aaaaaaammmmmmm Baaaaaaaccccccckkkkkkkk! This is Wes Lambert aka "Pluck A Duck". Hope everyone is doing well. I live in Loris, SC which is about 20 mins from North Myrtle Beach, 25 mins to Myrtle Beach, SC. and 45 mins to I-95 which Tar-heel Blue is correct it does have North Bound Lanes which by the way the the North bound lanes are currently being widen!!!!!!  I hunt with a few good ole' boys including Tar-heel Blue! I mostly duck hunt along the White River and a few fields in DeValls Bluff, Arkansas and hunt Pheasants, Grouse, Duck, Sandhill Crane and Geese in Goodrich North Dakota. Tar-heel Blue accompanied my Farther and I in 2007 and we had a great time. On the way back we were fortunate enough to stop and pay a visit to the "Cheese Heads" in Edgerton Wisconsin. I have to say those guys are a class act except they did not understand the most sought after dialect in the world know as the romance language of "Red-Neck". I thought the Cheese Heads were going to choke on the fine meal we were eating when I told them that it was so dry around home that the catfish were up on the bank checking themselves for fleas. I hope to be visiting those guys along with Tar-heel Blue in Feb. 2010 and maybe I wont have to use sign language to talk to em.  I know everyone is excited to get the season started and wish everyone a safe and enjoyable season. The website looks great!!!

    Pluck a duck (Wes), super to have you on board. Since I got my redneck decoder ring from sending in 3 box tops from Copenhagen I should have a much easier time conversating with you the next time.   Great to have you on board and the fact you associate with TB won't be held against you.

    dendmitchell (Dennis), it's nice to see that some people come to their senses after losing them in the concrete jungle. I hope you're enjoying the switch and the fresh air. Give some feedback when you want and post as often as you would like. Nice to have you around.

    huntersblind, I hope you enjoy the ride. You've got the right attitude and a super campanion to share it with. If you have any questions, please feel free to put them on the board.

    Chris, the warmer climates are great. But with each one there are down sides. For ME, I don't like the bugs and snakes of the warm south. A lot of people live in those places so there must be a way of adjusting.The Washington, Oregon coast are warm but they are rainy in winter. I learned to live with the rain.....Bob

    Bob I have learn one thing anywhere is better then jersey ,grown men run with shotguns to shoot bird on the ground or in a tree.guys with dogs that are half dead,or have no clue.guys who will watch your dog go on point & try to steal your brid or after you shoot it,they pick it up like it was there bird.So weather does not bother me just a--holes & jersey is full of them.

    Chukar, Hun, Valley Quail, Mountain Quail, Ruffed Grouse, Blue Grouse, Pheasants, and Sage Grouse. Weather gets a bit cold but not like the Dakota's. Last week it was 108 for a couple days but it's dry on my end of the state wet and humid on the west side of state. And you would have to worry about people stealing your birds but keep good dogs locked in the box.

It does happen, even in the area we hunt close to our cabin in Colorado, we have problems.. and those are usually people from Texas. It happens all over, but thank God its rare. I would have to miss a hunting season in jail! lol
