    I like the area around Woman lake. Pan fish, Walleye, Northern ect. Lots of access and some nice resorts.
    Shorter drive too. No chance of border issue.

    is that by Nevis?

    North of Brainard just south of Leech lake. Walker is main town there. You taking a boat?

    Yes.

    Tough ??? Is there any way to have him shoulder each one? Bad part is that depending on age he will grow into— or out of it.

    He shoots a Mossberg 500 youth 20 gauge really well so I don’t need to go to small, he is 8 but a well built kid, I think the Savage is a heavier gun, the biggest compliant about the Rossi from what I can find is it is light and absorbs not much recoil. For some reason I seem to like the Savage myself but looking for a reason to spend an extra 40 bucks on it.

    If he shoots a 20 well then why bother with a 410, a 20 does everything a 410 will do. the pattern on the 410 is really tight a 20 will give a wider margin for error and more confidence.

    He got a red dot scope on it for Christmas and I don’t want to take all that off the 20 gauge with turkey hunting around the corner and this gun is pretty easy to move through the brush with as it is pretty short.

    Bought the Stevens today and went hunting, it shot real well at a stationary target trying it out but its aim was really off at a running rabbit, as said by my 8 year old, he had fun firing at one at least today, most of the snow is gone going to have to wait for it again to see some bunnies. It was easy enough for him to work the action and is a good fit.

    How about the Savage is rock solid and I think will maintain resale better.

    Thanks Ken, I just needed a little nudge to go that direction.

    I had a beagle for my first dog and she was a real sweetheart. That being said, make sure to purchase from a quality kennel with guaranteed health certificates. Our beagle had all kinds of health problems including multiple allergies, chronic anal gland discharge (eventually had to have them removed), pancreatitis, bad knees (required surgery), and terminal cancer. We had to have her put down at around 8 years of age due to a malignant brain tumor that was literally pushing her eyes out of her head. Incredibly pitiful and sad end to wonderful and loving family dog.

    x2. I am lucky with mine as he is 14 and doesn’t have any real horrible issues yet. Like you mentioned he has chronic multiple allergies, has trouble with his anal glands but I wouldn’t really call it “chronic” (1-2x a year maybe), luxating patella and bad knees, and knock on wood he has a few tumors and skin tags, elderly dog lumps and bumps but so far none of them cancerous. Allergies and patelllas/knees I have managed to keep at bay for the most part due to diet changes. But yes, for such an awesome breed it is a shame they can be plagued with so many health issues.

    I hear ya there, my last one I had had a disk go out in her back at 8 years and had to put him down it wasn’t a good deal.

    Beagling seems to be a very regional hobby, and Iowa is not one of those regions.

    https://www.rabbitdogs.net/

    Check this place out ^^

    Missouri and Illinois are both popular beagling states. Plenty of folks from both on that site. There is a classified/pups/but sell trade section but also a forum like this one. Try introducing yourself there and explain what you�re looking for and someone may be able to point you in the right direction.

    If you can�t find anything local or near local, there are also guys on that site who do dog hauling and transport so maybe try dropping one of those guys a line if you find the perfect pup, but it�s located somewhere far away.

    That site has a lot of people selling a tad older dogs and even started dogs too if you�re not wanting an 8 week old puppy. Some of those guys from the south start them in pens which NO ONE does here really so you might be wel served going the started dog route.

    Thanks for the leads, probably going to get as young as one as I can, they need to get accustomed to being handled by the kids and I have a 6 year old that really loves dogs.

    Be aware that beagles come in 2 sizes. Max 13″ and 15″. I had a 15″ that was a great dog.

    I did not know that, always had a beagle when I was a kid and a few years past. It’s that or a coon dog and I am too old to take up coon hunting again!.

    I use one and they work great! Used it on an 18lb northern at rainy lake and it held it no problem. I like them better then nets.

    The reviews on them are really good, the other cheaper brands are mixed, mostly about lesser quality. now just to decide 15 or 30lb.

    Gateway North send me emails all summer of pretty good deals to fill in their tine slots, I have been looking at flying out of international falls too, I want to take my son on his 1st Canada trip and flying out of there would cut some of the drive time to the other fly in outfits further north

    Personally, I use mine for lots of other stuff too: weighing lambs, bags of deer meat, etc.

    That’s a thought, thanks for the input, we have 4H animals and weight feed sometimes, I don really have anything that works real well for that

    Then you can write it off �

    That’s what I do with my jobsite “security” cameras.
    B)

    Tell the IRS agent u want to take a walk in the woods to show him your cameras if he asks about them, doubt he would take u up on that and would take your word for it.

    Yes, they are much easier to use than the hook style. But I suggest to get a 50#. And much better for the fish than a net if you are going to release.

    Ok, I have only caught one fish over 15lbs in the past 10 years, the smaller weights by 1/4 lb and the bigger ones by 1/2lb increments, would you still recommend the larger one, I think the next size is the 30lb.

    my impression is you net them 1st then use the gripper to pull them up out of the net for hook removal and weighing, I mainly want a good scale it just looks easier than holding the fish while trying to put a J hook into it that most scales have.
