Training collar question


ccarlson

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a new training/beeper collar. The features I want include:

-standard e collar features like nick and constant

-Vibrating paging or warning capability

-beeper collar that I can leave off and use only as a locating feature from the transmitter when I lose my dog in the long grass.

-3/4 mile to one mile range rating.

My problem is that once you add the beeper feature on a collar, it becomes harder to find one with the vibrating paging feature. I have only found one brand and model that has all these features. It is the DT Super Pro Elite model 7800 which sells for $520 (WOW!!). So I'm wondering two things.

First, is DT a good brand collar?

Second, does anyone know of any other collars that have all of these features?

I've found plenty of beeper/trainers without the vibrating feature for the $340-$380 range.

I had one DT and had problems but they took care of it, it went on the fritz again and I got a tritronics and haven't had a problem. I can't speak to the beeper models, except to say a buddy of mine has one and we've banned him from using it when we hunt together, our group just doesn't like it, thats just merely a personal preference.

I've got a dogtra beeper collar and tritronics ecollar. I don't like to have all my eggs in one basket with electronic gear. I'd recomend both pieces of equipment.

As leechlake said, I don't like listening to a beeper collar all day. I want the capability to turn on the beeper from the transmitter (as a locate feature only) which stand alone beepers don't do from what I have seen. It also means two transmitters, more items to recharge etc.

any other input on DT collars?

One thing I like about the high priced unit is that it uses FM frequency which seems to be the trend for high end units. FM signals are more reliable in heavy cover.

My first collar was a DT. It worked fine and when I had problems with it, I was very impressed by their service. They took good care of me and the collar worked real well right up until the day I forgot it on the bumper and proceeded to run it over with my truck frown.gif

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!
