Permant shack heating

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for a new heater for the shack.  I've been looking at the ventless wall mount heaters.   wondering if others are using those as well or if it better to get a vented heater?  I would also take any recommendations of other heaters or furnaces .   Thanks.

Agree with vented. Also blower or fans desireable to move heated air around for consistent temp throughout the shack. With non-vented you could find your door frozen shut next time you want to use it.

Great info... I saw his post right away and I had no dang clue what to say. Vented seemed like the obvious choice but I didn't think of the condensation aspect!

We use ventless, but we have enough cracks in ours that we get plenty of fresh air ;) plus we don't sleep in ours.

 

I agree with the "door frosting shut" comment! . I do use a homemade "two 12v computer fans" contraption that moves the air around pretty good good, i just mount it above the furnace and it blows the rising heat down and to the sides.

    • I do it, have experience with homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers and you work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. I would just slowly introduce them. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
    • Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER. 
    • Not if you're diabetic.
    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?
    • Light Beer, pffffft! Kind of like the fat lady ordering 4 Big Macs, 3 orders of fries and a diet soda. 
    • So what's better? I suppose you are going to say Coors light or Miller lite?

    • You want to read High Speed 1 at pins 6 and 14 of the DLC. HS CAN 2 is on pins 3&11. Some fords have Medium Speed CAN on pins 3&11. Keep this in mind when shopping for your reader.
