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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
