E collars


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any advice/ recomendations for ecollars?  I have a 50lb black lab.  We will be hunting grouse and pheasants mainly.  Something with a good range, decent price, and easy to use.  Just want some feedback on what others use and some pluses and minuses.  Thanks.

I use dogtra as well and only complain is when it is very cold it drains the battery fast until it warms back up. Otherwise it's been great

Ive had SportDog.  After 5 years of almost everyday use, I replaced it.  I dont remember the previous model I had as it has been discontinued.  I did buy a Garmin upland collar, but I use a tone before using a "nick" on my dog.  The tone was too quiet and the dog could not hear it. There was no way to increase the volume, or I would have kept it. I really liked the Garmin Collar once I figured out how to use it.   I took it back and got another SportDog.

The dogtra can vibrate as well as stimulation. I've used sportdogs as well.

Thanks for the feedback guys.  I have been doing a little research and have been looking a bit at sport dog 1225... does anyone have any experience with this unit?  How does the range hold up (specifically in woods). My pup is a bit of a "ranger".

My bet is the Dogtra will hold up better. I train frequently and need a solid e-collar. Sportdog is fine for the budget minded folks who don't use an e-collar that much.

The Dogtra is the gold standard around here for Police Service Dogs, fwiw. Don't know any other brands as I haven't used them. I will say that the Belgian Malinois that I team up with is as hard (and hard headed) as any dog you will ever meet, regardless of the breed. The Dogtra e-collar, (and I'm sure any e-collar) is a difference maker and a life saver, when used properly. Range is good and it has held up to some serious abuse, both collar and remote. Mine is purchased for me, as is the dog, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Dogtra.

I use a E- collar technologies UL 1200 Think I paid 280 for it

I like it the remote transmitter floats so if you happen to drop it in the water you are fine. Has a lost remote beeper. Has vibrate, the level you set it at and a booster button as well I have mine set 5 over the regular button. Has momentary and continuous.

I like it as well for at night it has a led light on the collar you can turn on or have flashing so I can see the black dog in the dark.

      So that's how you have been doing so well these past years. You brought a Guide! 👍 😉

      What were you trying to catch on the sand bars and what time of day were you there?

      Rick G, how many times did Hairy bite until you hooked it?

      If you intend to fish past Sunday, you'll need a new 2021 angling license.   Additionally, the deadline to remove permanent/overnight fish houses is Monday in the southern half of the state.  If found unattended over night beyond the deadline, enforcement officials can confiscate the house itself.

      Was that you out fishing by the mouth of H.O.L. Bay last evening? We went out towards Wakemup, marked a few but not takers.

      Well I sure picked the wrong week to be up at the lake! I certainly enjoy the coldest of days more than this spring weather in February. Seeing the sun is nice, but I'd rather see that at the end of March versus now. What powder there was on the lake is virtually gone. On the plus side, the snow base is solid and good for 4-wheelers as well as sleds. Hopefully we get 6-12" of snow soon and then we will have some great riding conditions. I didn't ride the trails, but did ride quite a bit in the woods. Things are getting bare.   Edit - I just walked outside....it's snowing! I should have complained sooner...

      At the risk of sending this thread further off the rails, let's talk "slots". There is nothing majic about a protected slot limit (PSL). It can be a useful tool if your spawning stock NEEDS some protection, or if there is demand for growing larger fish.  All of the lakes you mention have had a PSL in the past, and some still do.  The most used PSL originally, protected all fish from 17-26 inches, because that protection covered almost all the mature females in a population (and lots of mature males). The thought at the time was that if some spawners are good, more is better, or at least can't hurt.  Wrong! Almost all those lakes have since adjusted those PSLs, or eliminated them. Red closed the fishery during restoration, then used the PSL while spawning stock still NEEDED some protection. Upper Red has since abandoned the PSL all together for much less restrictive, one over 17", or 20" regulations. Both allow considerable harvest of spawners. The other lakes mentioned have all experienced some stockpiling of excess spawning stock and suppression of new year classes, causing managers to make multiple adjustments to allow more harvest and free up productivity. Lake of the Woods, which you didn't mention started out with a 19.5-28" PSL to be more compatible with Ontario's regulation (50cm). That worked out well because it allowed considerable harvest under the PSL, reducing spawner density before they grew into the PSL.  Finally there's Mille Lacs which has continued with very restrictive harvest regulations, currently with a closed summer season, no PSL, but insted a two inch harvest slot limit.  Lot's of large fish, an abundance of spawning stock, but recruitment of new young fish has been dismal.  Now can we get back to discussing why a statewide bag limit reduction applied across all Minnesota walleye lakes, natural or stocked, makes no sense?

      Thanks everyone for the reassurance! Everything was fine but not a thing was biting and nothing even appeared on text book perfect sand bars 😭
