Anyone use vests on thier dogs for pheasant hunting?

Being fairly new to pheasant hunting for both me and my dog I am trying to figure out what he needs, if anything. Heading to SW ND this weekend and want to make sure I have what I will need.

Also not sure if I should get dog boots or if I would need them, I did buy some tough pad spray last night, but not sure if I will need it.

GET A VEST!! i went pheasant hunting on saturday all day and it saved my dog's belly. the only thing that got raw was her nose and around her eyes. it is night and day. the on think that i always bring along is a first aid kit for my dog just in case and a leatherman. go a head and start putting that tough pad spray on cause it will help. and if you don't think you will need something just bring it just in case, cause you will be mad at your self if you left it at home. good luck in north dakota.

it is some kind of spray that you put on your dogs pads that makes them tougher.

We hunted Saturday's opener and the dog vest came in handy. Make sure it is the right size and you put it on correctly and tight. It was a little loose at first and it started to rub and chafe the dog. Also, vasaline for their noses, since it is mightly dry out there and their noses are in everything

i second the vasaline and also bring some neosporan for when you get done hunting put it on the raw spots. and if your dog does lick it don't worry it won't hurt them as long as it is small amounts.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
