Several years ago I was in South Dakota for the Pheasant opener in October. It was the hottest opener on record. I donít remember exact numbers but there was something like 40 dogs that died in the field state wide that weekend from heat stress. The daytime temperature wasnít that high, I want to say low 80ís. There were several dogs at the hotel we were staying at that were having heat related issues the owners were having to deal with.

Bottom line is always watch your dogs for heat stress. Easiest way to tell if they are getting overheated is to look at their tongue and mouth. The hotter they get the more dark red the tongue and mouth become. Panting will also start to get labored.

Drinking water and resting wonít always get them cooled down quick enough. Get their belly and arm pits wet if you see he symptoms I mention above.

Savage is starting to offer them with those stocks from the factory

Savage has Bmag models with a laminated stock and also a laminated thumbhole, but none of the Bmags come with the Pro Varmint stock.
The consultant found that "WDFW's management practices had not contributed to the funding problem."

Deer Hunting / Snail mail couldn't have worked any better

I had a very interesting start to my Monday.  Working at ecko lake I noticed a dark figure laying down in the shade near the lake. Grass is pretty tall and hard to judge size, I was about 80 yds away trying to figure out what it was exactly. First thought was a coyote. Then I noticed the ears. I sent out a hear kitty kitty but it never moved it's head. It was super focused on straight ahead. Perfectly perpendicular to me. Before I knew what happened bobcat bolted and a doe jumped and bounded straight at me, she saw me and we both heard a little whimper. She stopped and turned back towards the lake and she bounded off and on to the neighbors property.  I know of 7 fawns in the area, hopefully it's not 6 now.

So I'm all jacked up on that and my dad calls me after just getting home from his property and is looking through his mail. We're talking business and all that when he pauses and says " did u know I got drawn for the chiwawa quality buck tag?"  What??? No fing way!!!. I put my dads apps in. Why i did not check his results i dont know. 🙄He doesnt want to hunt any other unit but the chiwawa. My dad and I have put in for 15 yrs together and the last 3 yrs I have wanted to try my luck with a few other units.

So here we are. Im pretty sure I am more excited than my dad is. I could hardly work the rest of the day.  My dad is 70, this is probably the only time he will get this tag. This is super important for me and more importantly for my 7 yr old son. We know a small portion of the unit very well but I would be super greatfull for any info provided. Thanks for reading this novel!!!

Looks like a big cat. But everything looks like a trophy in the fog lol. If itís even somewhat close to where Iím guessing... a real big one has been seen in the general area, within a Cats range anyways.
