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.

    • 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.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
