RE: Any hope on training a 7 year old lab?

Most people will tell you no. It's not that an older dog can't learn, but it often takes more time than it's worth. Be happy with a great companion and don't expect too much of a hunter.

RE: Is a 223 to small for deer?

I've also used the 10" McDonald's straw but have had much better performance out of an Arby's shake straw which is approx. 11.5" Give it a try Leland I think you'll be happier.;)

RE: Grouse Legs

You can do either, but we just breast them out ourselves. No one wants to waste game, but grouse legs are pretty slim pickens. I don't think you're wasting enough to worry about.

RE: Help with selecting a gun!

A 20 that chambers 3" shells is about the same as a light 12. For the flexibility it gives I would recommend either a pump or auto. As others have said a 28 is a little light for some applications.

RE: New puppy defecating in her crate is this a problem?

Try this: Get a smaller crate. If she has too much room she'll just go to the other end of the crate to relieve herself. She is less likely to dirty her crate if she has to lay in it.
