Hunting with a dog

5 posts in this topic

So i started thinking about this and just wondering what everyone's thoughts are about goose hunting a field with a dog. I guess to ask a better question is...If your dog hunts out of a blind, where is the best place to position that blind(ie...beside you in the row, behind, infront) I have been putting mine to the left of my blind because it is a natural heal position but i have looked through some pictures and forums on the net and seen dog blinds infront and even some in back. What are some other thoughts from guys who own or hunt with dogs from a ground blind. Thanks

I put the dog blind behind me on the right side real tight to the back of the blind. I shoot right handed so the dog can mark easier down the barrel of the gun. Also when birds are working you can talk to your dog because his head is right behind you. I would never put the dog in front. to easy for an accident. Plus every time you pull that trigger the muzzle blast will take a tole on the dogs hearing. I don't know about you but when someone gets a little to close to to my head it rings my bell. Now put your dog in front of you and shoot a 3 or 4 man limit. That's alot of shooting.

That makes sense. I usually put the dog blind tight to my left side and i plan on having him in the blind later in the season. Thanks for the input guys.

Ours is also always in a blind or lying right next to it. Never really used the dog blind we bought for him. Puttin the dog in front is an accident waiting to happen.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
