Training Collars

5 posts in this topic

Looking for some input on training collars for my GSP. I was out looking at collars this evening, and a couple caught my eye...I am hoping someone can get me some feedback on the ones I have in mind. I looked at the DT XTS 2000, and the Dogtra NPS 1500. Both were almost identical in price and had many of the same features. The DT had a longer range, but the Dogtra had a smaller transmitter that felt a bit sturdier...otherwise the features were almost identical. Anyone have experience with either of these or able to provide a reason why I should choose one over the other? Thanks!

unless you have a separate beeper collar already I would be definiately be getting a beeper collar. Dogtra 2500 T&B. Before I had the beeper collar I lost my GSP for over 2 hours. He was on point in the cattails not even 20 yards from where I first lost him.

I already have a beeper collar...just looking to get the other one now that the dog is old enough to handle it.

In that case I have had my Dogtra now for 3 years and it has been excellent. 4-5 Days of hunting all day long with the beeper running before I have to charge the collar. I only charge the transmitter once maybe twice during the hunting season. But I have never used the other collar you mentioned. I would go Dogtra.

I have a Dogtra that I'm very pleased with for my lab right now. I also have an older Tri-tronics that I really liked but the size of the transmitter when compared to the Dogtra makes the choice pretty easy on which one I'd use for a long day of hunting. The Tri-tronics is now relegated to home use on a basset hound that enjoys feeding off of the counters when she doesn't have an e-collar on. I also don't have any experience with the DT collar so I can't help you out on that one.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
