Ideas to keep a dog out of the water while duck hunting ?

5 posts in this topic

We usually hunt out of a boat but hunted a small pothole over the weekend and had trouble keeping the dog up and out of the water.

He did well to stay on land and come out when he heard shots (we disappointed him too often)Any ideas or tools that you have used ? My goals is to get something portable but sturdy.

Thanks for any help.

I had thought about using some kind of lawn table (like those that come with a set of plastic lawn chairs). I haven't really looked, but if you could find a big enough one it would be cheap and lightweight. I plan on looking more this summer. Hopefully someone will have a better idea!

I bouught an avery Ruff stand last year. It works well! It's adjustable, but will not sit in more than 4ft of water. Dog seems to like it and likes being out of the water. I like it because I can put him a little further away from me so he can get a better look at falling birds. Folds up nice and is not to heavy.

I bought it last year on the internet and paid $150 for it but I see they are being sold at cabelas and the like for around $180.

It helps for late season cold water hunts

Same here - Avery Ruff stand. Of course a fairly firm bottom is required to make it work, but still a very nice dog stand.

Thanks for the good ideas. I checked out the stand and it could work for us. I might work over the summer on something that would be a bit more portable as we usually walk 1/2 plus miles in to the ponds we are talking about.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
