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.

    •   Lol been making them for years.  Funny you were just able to "get it".  
    •   Yep only you and the club "get it".  
    • He was looking better but then last night happened and it reminded you the last couple seasons have been just bad after a promising start a few years back. Heck I might even swap him for one of the Jets goalies, they all have been terrible but with a competent D they might work in a pinch.
    • D2E learned how to make his own memes, this should be entertaining.

    •   Yes, please. I have no faith in Kuemper even in spot duty. He really does have the talent, but he's too much of a head case. The Francisco Liriano of hockey? Lol. Last night was a dumpster fire (although that fourth goal wasn't his fault, it still rattled him--we can't have that mentality on any level, even if he sees the ice very infrequently).
    • Sounds like we have pretty serious interest in Latavius Murray from Oakland. I'd be all for that. Good runner, decent receiving back, and good pass blocking back. AKA, a complete RB and a 3-down guy. At 27, he's not a super long term solution, but for 2-3 years I'd take swing at him. This draft is solid at RB, so we can draft and develop while Murray and McKinnon hold down the fort.   As for AP, I have so many good memories, and he might even be poised for one of those bounce-back type years where he rips of 1300 and 12 TDs, but I just have to believe that should be done somewhere else. He flat out doesn't fit this offensive style. We need a more well rounded back (Murray or someone like him). Hang up your spurs in Texas, AP. Thanks for the good times.

    • A lot of people don't get the political extremist either, probably more of us leaning away from the parties than people doubling down on them, not to mention the 70 some million that just watch form the sidelines. Just because people actually voted for idiots like Trump & Clinton doesn't mean they were happy to do it. One could even say they were forced into it which all of us really were because of the systems in place. But hey you keep on spinning it any way you'd like.
