importance of a dog blind

3 posts in this topic

I am looking at buying a ground blind for field hunting with my lab. I am wondering how many guys use and like them, as opposed to guys who don't. It seems that if nothing else, it gives the dog a place to go everytime where he can be out of the way and know to sit still when birds are close. Any thoughts?

If you get one, get the smallest one that your dog will fit into. This makes it easier to hide in the field.

I also put the blind about 20 yards behind the decoys. So the dog can see all of the action and see all of the falls.

I use the GHG one, not sure what its called. I have a Yellow lab that it is Very ivory in color and sticks out when in the field. The only thing I dont like about it is that it has an opening on both ends. sometimes his tail sticks out the one end and when birds are working it's wagging like crazy. If I had to do it again I would purchase the dog hut, It's lower and only has one in/out. On the other hand, I have hunted many times with dogs just laying next to the owners blind with no problems. My dog is so white I felt it would help.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
