Hunting with 10 strangers, any good orange vests out there?

8 posts in this topic

I bought a "quick spot" vest from cabelas today. I like the fact that it is light weight, and does not go under the arms for chafing issues. My concern is in the field. I can see this thing being a pain, having to fix it quite a bit. The vest I have velcros around the collar, and around the waist leaving the chest exposed, and just a thin fabric on the dogs back. I am not looking for a full vest, but do not see this thing preforming too well. Is there another product that you guys like? Maybe I just have to give this thing a chance. Cabelas only had 2 options, the skid plate type, and this lighter back strap

I've got the skid plate one from Cabelas and works great. Just make sure it is large enough for the leg holes. I bought one that just fit and had chafing issues. Up sized it this year and no problems.

Any over heating issues? I basically just want color on my dog with the firing squad we will have.

I have the vest you are refering to and it works well. It makes your dog stand out very well in thick cover. It stays on better than i thought it would.

He hasn't over heated yet.

Thanks, Got out and used it today. My dog simply forgot it was on when we started hunting, and it performed well. The vest pulls on the collar a bit, but didnt seem to bother

I bought a Remington orange dog vest a few years ago to keep my females belly from getting tore up. It stayed on very well. It worked so well my hunting partner bought one for his male. He used it pheasant opener. The dog didn't seem to be himself that morning so after a few hours he took the vest off the dog. The dog

did great after that.

I have a male now and thought I'd see how the old vest fit him. After scratching my head wondering why his undercarriage is covered up. I figured out its supposed to go on his back not his belly, but it worked good on a female.

Never had an Overheating issue. But on the warmer days I leave it off of him. Didn't even think about it over opening weekend. Now he wears it every time we hunt. doesn't even realize it is on him.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
