Eye contact and nonverbal communication matters when working with pups

The verbal commands get all of the love, but it’s what we don’t vocalize to our dogs that is sometimes the most important. After all, spoken conversations with a canine are one-sided affairs. But overall communication isn’t. It’s a two-way street, and if you work to establish nonverbal means of getting your message across, you’ll have a better training and hunting experience.

Considering a litter of puppies? Here’s what to know

The day was Sept. 20, 2021, and I was feeling pretty good about things as I drove home, pup by my side, from an animal eye specialist appointment in the greater Twin Cities.
For one thing, my black Lab, Liza, had received a passing grade from her eye test – one more hurdle cleared on the track to eventual first-time motherhood for the 2-year-old. For another, the checkup had cost a mere $47. Regarding finances required to produce a litter of puppies, that was a drop in the bucket, I was well aware.

Minnesota DNR tweaks state park special deer hunt lead rules

The 2022 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations booklet – Page 89 – highlighted new rules pertaining to lead ammunition use for special state park deer hunts (or disease-management hunts), as well as for scientific and natural area special and regular hunts. In short, lead ammo was banned for those hunts.
So why, then, did a DNR news release on July 20 restate, largely, what was spelled out a year ago? In part, because the rule in ’23 comes with an exemption – one that may require a workout, of sorts, for youth deer hunters, but only for those in the state’s shotgun zone.

There is an incredible amount of sun-resistant clothing on the market. If you didn’t read the label, you’d never know it was sun-resistant. The clothing is very stylish.
It doesn’t have to be scorching hot to get a sunburn or even be exposed to extremely bright sun. You can get a bad sunburn on a day when it is gray or hazy outside. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays penetrate the overcast skies.

Here’s how to make the most of fishing during the dog days of summer

We are in the midst of the dog days of summer, when the weather is uncomfortably hot and humid. For me, that means fishing in early morning or late evening, when the waters are at their coolest and torrid sunshine isn’t beating down, raising beads of sweat to the surface of my skin.
