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!

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
