The Collar Clinic for reconditioned collars. Possibly other forums or sites like hsolist.

I personally would buy/recomend Dogtra or Tritronics. I own a Dogtra my self and if I need to purchase another ever, it will be Dogtra.

If you do a search there have been many discussions on this forum about collars that you may find helpful.

I second Collar Clinic. I purchased my Tri-tronics collar there.

Make sure you zap yourself before you zap your dog. It helps to know what you'll do to your dog when you hit the button. Effective tools, but must be used appropriately.

Used is a bit dangerous. The batteries in them don't last forever. My first was a Tritronics and it worked well for 5 or 6 years. The model was disontinued by then and it was going to be big bucks to get things squared away. I would be cautious of an hsolist or hsolist setup. The models change pretty quickly these days and you may find yourself SOL if you have a problem and need help from the manufacturer.

Like Tom said, you need to be cautious if you look for an actual "used" collar from somewhere else. If you do this you would want to look for a newer model and not just any old collar. I know there are Dogtra's around that have only been out for a few years....so that would guarantee a collar is only a few years old.

One other note, I did find my new collar on HSOList. The place I found selling the collars also had a normal site so I checked out the site and called them and ended up buying right through the store over the phone instead of on HSOList. Best price around from what I could find (no tax and free shipping). You can do a search for mygoodpuppy if you are interested.

I also bought my Dogtra new from a store on hsolist. Saved a bundle.

With the used models, you will want to make sure that they replaced the rechargeable batteries.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
