Anyone recommend a good waterproof e-collar for under $300? Looking for a simple single dog unit for a lab. I have used a couple Tritronics Classic 70's in the past - both which worked great until they were about 2 years old then they went kaput.

I had a Tri Tronics Field 70 for 13 years and never had a problem, Tri Tronics would get my vote. Have a Pro 100 now and love it.

Sportdog Wetland 400 or Sportdog FieldTrainer 400. I think both are under $180.

I have a DT systems for my Britt and it works great. I know they make a waterproof version for waterfowl hunting. Might be worth checking out.

There are a fair number of different set ups on the market. I was looking to spend about that much and ended up going with the Field 90 EXP. It has 6 levels of continuous and 6 levels of momentary. I bought it last summer and have had no problems to speak of yet. The TT website is listing it at $338.00.

I ended up going with that brand,even though there is only a two year warranty since it has been around a bit longer. I also talked with many people who use this and other brands and TT got the best reviews out of quality. A friend of mine has a Sportdog FieldTrainer 400 and has had to send it in a few times to get fixed (another friend also has it but has had no problems at all with it).

I hunted pheasant, grouse, and ducks this year and the collar was put through many different environments. The best recommendation I could give is to do some research.

I have the dogtra. works out to 3/4 mile and both the collar and transmitter are waterproof. 127 levels of excitement, also has a nick, continous and a buzz page signal. my 8 month lab uses about a #37. When I want him to come, I hit the page twice and he comes a running. very rarely do I have to include a nick. Last weekend out on Milacs he was over 1/2 mile out and on a dead run, wind was blowing the opposite direction. I hit the page he stopped dead in his tracks looked at me and came running back as fast as he could. I never said a word.

They have them on the site that starts with an e and ends in a y for 300. The 2500, not the 2502

Look at the Dogtra 2300NCP. It lists at $299 but a quick google search will find it cheaper. I really like that it has lithium batteries which recharge in just a couple hours.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
