Invisible fencing

Just wondering what brands people are using and what are the pros and cons of each brand? Also, wondering the cost of each brand? Did you put the system in yourself or did you have the company? Thanks for all the help.

kooba, I have a pet safe brand myself and have had no issues at all. My buddy and dad both have the Sportdog and think its the best ever. I have to agree. It has a collar with variable intensity and a nice control unit which show if the signal isn't working. I believe you can buy the Petsafe for around $100+ and the Sportdog for $199.

My friend made a great pull behind machine for installing fences. It works behind garden tractors or atv's. It cuts the ground, installs the line at the proper depth, and closes it up right behind. Slick as a whistle... I installed six fences for friends and family last year.

My parents have a petsafe as well. It works great! They haven't had any problems with it as of yet and the dogs love being outside all day!

this homemade thing is going to remain under wraps. It has a disk, a curved chisel-like blade, a wire tube, spool holder, weight hanger, etc. Its solid and has been used to install roughly 25 fences over the last couple years. Other than that, I think my friend would like to keep it on a need-to-know basis.

I have a PetSafe with an Extra Stubborn Dog Receiver that we don't use anymore. Good up to 5 acres I think? Worked great for us with a pair of labs. (90lbs & 119lbs)

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      The taxidermist won't know how to mount a fish of this size A true trophy of a life time.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
