More energy/stamina

Recommended Posts

Hi, I saw this sport drink for dogs in a pheasants forever mag. called Dyne, its supposed to give them more energy and stamina, and helps so they dont get dehydrated,.
Have any of you guys heard of this or used it, or use something similar?

Also, as far as excercise, my dogs get a good long session of tossing the dummy, plus get about a mile run about every other day, usually a slower trot about 1/2 that, and run the other 1/2. Is this sufficient enough excersise before hunting season?
What kind of excercise schedule do YOU use?

had my younger one at the hunting preserve last week for her fisrt time in front of live birds and she seemd to tire out quickly, it was windy as heck and maybe was abit warm for her, I think it was maybe around the 60 degree range.
thanks

In my personal opinion, dogs don't NEED energy bars, drinks, etc. Just like you and I don't NEED it either. I've played sports, hunted all day, etc. Whether I drink water, juice or Gatorade I don't notice a difference, but I tend to drink gatorade/powerade because it tastes good and is supposed to help. They didn't need it in the past, their ancestors the wolf doesn't need it, but there's probably some science behind it and there could be some benefits. It's probably not going to be noticeable for the average hunter/dog, maybe if you hunt 5 days a week all season long, but generally your dog should recover with rest and time-off.
This is just my opinion, and maybe has something to do with the fact that I don't want to spend more money and haul along more stuff when we hunt.
Other opinions?

I believe that if dogs are worked hard, you cant go wrong with high energy food/snacks. The wolf and also bears will go for the fatty areas first to give then the extra energy reserves they may need.

I just give my dog a higher amount of protien for the hunting season. I switch his food. Id give him the same all year but it costs alot more.

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
