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.
