Training Dog collars

3 posts in this topic

Gander Mountain in Lakeville has great prices on the old style Tri-Tronics dog collars right now. I just bought a Upland Special 1-dog with beeper for $220, they are normally $499.

Hunt23Fish -

Do you know much about the Tri Tronics? I have a 6 month old Golden Ret. I am starting to get into training wiht and will soon need a collar. I asked @ gander mtn here in Duluth to go over the differnece between models....I felt like i was talking to a brick wall!

Tri-Tronics makes a pretty good product as do many others.I had a Tri tronics unit and also a DT systems that worked just as well.

Usually the more the options the more it will do for you.

Some questions might be

1-Need for range control

2-do you want a beeper.

3-more than 1 dog etc.

I never had a problem with either unit and the DT is somewhat less spendy.

Try posting this under the Equip forum also for some added response. You could also go to thier web page and it will explain alot for you.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
