Re: Trailing in the desert

Re: Alfa collar malfunction

I’ve used Garminsince the 220 /dc30 came out and have never had a problem with them not tracking and finding my dog. As far as I know, I’ve never had one malfunction and correct the dog on it’s on.

Re: Spring Bear Hunting Question

We don't have a spring bear season anymore in New Mexico but when we did it could make for a long days. If you can get on a spring bear in the rough rocky country very soon after he comes out of the den, his pads are still soft and he will get sore footed and stop or climb pretty quick. But let him...

Re: Kidney failure

There's another factor about feed or protein. High protein if too high, can be a contributor but unusable proteins are worse. If the bulk or the main protein source of a feed is unusable then it has to be gotten rid of. It takes things like calcium for the kidney to be able to break down the excess...

Cant be good for a 50...

There’s a plug that’s manufacture with a built in thermostat that will shut itself off at certain temp ranges, might can google and find one that suits your climate and have it in the house behind the light so it shuts light off at specific temp and turns itself back on once the internal temp drops
