Great story here: Last winter break (we're all teachers) I and two buddies went to the Spencer, Iowa area to hunt pheasant for 3 days...12 hour trip, and I know we're nuts. On the last day I lost my dog's e collar...thought I'd never see it again. Just last night I got a call from the Iowa DNR. They were in the process of burning off the area I was hunting and found the collar. Needle in a hay stack Who says good things don't come to bird hunters?
