Duck Hunting Dog Stand

8 posts in this topic

Anyone have any instructions methods they used to build their own dog stand. I primarly hunt in cattails and bog and want a way to keep my dog elevated and dry.

I know about the ruff stand and sport stand but would rather not part with the $160.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I really dont want to spend that type of money but am thinking of biting the bullet.

A 2'x3' piece of 2" pink foam painted camo or with brown carpet on top.

I was thinking "DIY" at one of the big box stores the other day...so much easier to spend $20 on materials and make it yourself rather than part with 160 big ones.

Any "DIY" ideas or plans that people have successfully implemented?

Surface Tension - what type of folding chair are you talking about?

I just cant think of a good way to make something that is manageble to carry and that will work effectively sitting in a cattail marsh, but have to imagine not everyone is spending the 160. So any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

We've used the small Otter sleds. We can skid the decoys to the pond and then use it as a small boat for the dog to sit in. We generally use a couple of floating bogs around it to stabalize it.

Good Luck!

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
