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.

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.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
