Which Collar?

Recommended Posts

In need of a new e-collar before chasing pheasants in a couple weeks. Looking at either Dogtra 280NCP Platinum or TriTronics Sport Basic 3. I like the fact that reciever/transmitter on the Dogtra are both rechargable and it shows charge level, but I have had good luck with TriTronics in the past. Any opinions/history???

Thanks!

I got the TT G3 Sport Basic back in early May when I got my dog. I HAVE NOT had to charge it yet, made it through all of the summer training a 10 hrs/wk and all of early goose, and it's still flashing green (it should last a while even after it starts flashing yellow). I even left it on overnight on accident about a week ago. I also researched a lot and heard nothing but good about TT.

I've used the Dogtra series for a number of years and have had nothing but good luck.

Fairly fool proof & simple to run. A great collar at a good price,wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

Dogtra all the way. I have the 2000 T&B going on 3 years now. It gets used almost every day.

I picked up the same collar about a month ago, and am more than happy so far!

I have the tri-tronic SPORT UPLAND G3. Have used it for 1 ½ year and have still not changed the battery on the remote so I don’t think a rechargeable remote will save you much money.

One of the features I really like is turning the beeper on/off with the remote. I find it a bit annoying to listen to the beeper all the time and this makes it possible to turn it on just when you need it to locate the dog. Thee beeper uses a 9v battery, and I actually changed the battery for the first time this weekend.

I use the 2502 T&B and love it. Afriend of mine switched to the Dogtra 2502 T&B from TT and doesn't regret it at all.

I have a G2 sport model and a G3 sport combo. Only compaint that I have is the intensity "roller" dial doesn't have a firm enough "click" between numbers. It tends at times to get moved around with walking through tall thick cover that rubs on the transmitter. A buddy has the same one however and his seems better.

Thanks for all the replies everyone I appreciate the input. I had pretty much made up my mind to go with a Dogtra and after reading the above I won't have any reservations making that purchase.

If you are looking for a great deal. Don't know if I can name the store here but it is the large sporting good catalog/retail store on West 94. Check out the bargin cave in back. Factory refurbished tritronics at big discount, + all dog products in there had an additional 20% off on Wed this week. Unfortunately I had just ordered a new one last week.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
