tummy saver protective vests

Recommended Posts

Dano2

any of you pheasant hunters dogs wear one of these?
I was thinking of purchasing one, not only for her tummy protection, but so she will be seen abit easier. Shes a very light colored yellow lab, and blends in quite well out in the field.
Just wondering if they are too hot for them in early season and if they seem to bother the dog when wearing it? another concern was the thing getting caught up on stuff.
thanks

We use them all the time on our labs. Never seen any problems with overheating but the majority of our hunting is late season. They do occasionally get hung up on fences and what not. I'm sure they've saved a few stitches over the years.

I have used one called a Skid Plate, think I got it at Cabelas. It only covers the chest and has nylon straps across the back so it isn't too hot. Worked great for my lab. They even have a narrow model for dogs that don't have a real wide chest - prevents chaffing of the arm pits.

For pheasant hunting I have used the blaze orange vests before. My Choc. lab is only about 60lbs. so his vest is a little loose. It is made out of nylon and doesn't cause him to warm at all. If you get a neoprene vest, check make sure that (if you have a male) there is room for his ding ding to hang out so he can pee otherwise they can get a bad rash. I just cut a "U" shape out of it for him.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
