I talked with my good friend Jeff Katzer of Woodland Resort and Mitchell's Guide Service at Devils Lake, N.D., today. He told me what happened to him earlier this week: He broke through some ice on a slough in an attempt to save his hunting dog, Cooper, which was stuck in cold water after going through some thin ice.
Jeff says he nearly lost his life. And it raises a question: Should you risk your life to save your dog?
