We want you to have the best trip possible, and a little preseason warm up is the best way to do that.
A couple rounds of sporting clays in the month or so prior to your trip will not only get you back into shooting form, but it will also let you know if your gun is having any issues that need to be addressed. There are few things worse than a broken gun to ruin a hunt, and where we are there are no gunsmiths.
You will want to use the gun(s) that you are bringing up here and also you should try and use ammunition similar in speed to what you will be using up here. This will ensure you maximize your practise time for your Canadian hunt.
We welcome all furry hunting partners that you would like to bring up on your hunt. Here are a few new guidelines that will be in effect for 2013.
There will be absolutely no dogs in the lodge. No everyone is a dog lover and the hair gets to be a little too much
There will be warm spot for you to put your dog's crate/kennel when we are not hunting. You are also welcome to keep them in your vehicle if drive
In Lucky Lake Hunting Adventures vehicles your dog must be kennelled
You will be responsible for picking up after your dog, or taking it out of the yard and away from the buildings to do its business
All dogs in the field must be in a dog blind and staked down, no exceptions. You will be responsible for bringing your dogs own blind and stake. You will want to make sure your dog is accustomed to the blind too prior to the hunt.
We ask that your dog is capable of a minimum 100 yard blind retrieve in the goose field
Only one dog will be allowed in the field at a time, as there is no need for multiple dogs. For groups with more than one dog, we will simply rotate dogs through the hunts.
If at anytime the guide feels the dog is being detrimental to the hunt you will be informed and if it persists, you will be asked to take the dog to the vehicle.
I hate to be the heavy on this issue, but I am trying to make everyone's experience the best and most comfortable it can be.
