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.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
