I'm putting together a gear checklist that people can download and print.
You'll need Acrobat Reader to read and print this .pdf file gear checklist. You can get Acrobat at
The gear list is at
http://www.jesseshuntingpage.com/hunting-gear-list.pdfOne section is for when you bring your dog.
Right now I have on the list:
Dog food and bowls
Booties for rocks
Can you think of anything else that would be handy to have in the field with your dog?

My dogs gear bag is 27"l by 12" w by 14 " h and ###contains:
3e-collar and transmitter (1 set for each dog) in case with chargers
2beeper collar and transmitter in case
whistle on a lanyard
2 pairs booties
Zodiac flea spray(spray dogs down with it after field work)
2 pigeon harnesses
2 cordura 6' leashes
6 D rings
2 tie out stake
20' check cord (doesn't get used much)
9"x12"x2" cake pan to feed dogs in on long trips
3 white bar towels(clean)
bath towel to dry dogs
2 neoprene jacket(shadow grass for ducks)
2 blaze orange tummie protector
cordura dog water bowl
duck tape (miracle product!)
laminated card with vets name, phone and dogs medical info on back and microchip #,license#, ###and photo in case they get lost
8 nature valley apple/cinnamon granola bars for dogs( they love them and they are cheap)
70 oz. camelback with water for each dog. 5 gallon igloo cooler in truck for refills with ice
deskunking kit (in a 1 gallon ziplock bag containing hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and trial size liquid DAWN detergent)
first aid kit from http://www.dobbsdogs.com/cgi-bin/shopper.c...wpage=index.htm (http://www.dobbsdogs.com/cgi-bin/shopper.cgi?newpage=index.htm)
This kit includes stretch gauze, sterile pads, vet wrap, scissors, liquid styptic, hydrocortisone cream, green soap towelettes, adhesive tape, handwipe, latex gloves, trauma pads, sterile pads, eye and skin wash, cotton swabs, insect sting swabs, triple antibiotic ointment, antiseptic wipes, PVP iodine, forceps and care card as well as a belt-worn green nylon pouch. I also added 4 cold packs, an extra 2" and 4" vet wrap, bitter apple, 3 kotex super maxipads ( they make great bandages and splints)a space blanket, razor blade, bic shaver, needle and ###silk floss thread, ###SUPER GLUE for wounds, clotisol to help clotting, children's asprin, antihistamine(benedryl) and a sedative from the vet. I also keep a film container with some change and a 20 dollar bill in it(bribe money). I then put all of this first aid stuff in a doskil box like my e collars came in.
### ###Pretty much everything in this bag got used last year, the coldpacks are nice to have to help cool off your dog and when hunting hot days you can crack one and put on back of your OWN neck to cool off. I keep a roll of butt wipe in the end pocket, and the other end pocket has 2 cans of dog food in it.

Don't forget the EMT Gel!!

Hey wabbit- do you use that stuff? Does it conduct that much more? I get my dogs fur wet around the neck, and it seems to connect just fine. I wanted to buy it, but they were out the 2 times I tried to get it and then I found getting neck wet works. Shorthair- no problem zapping her, I set the control ###on my DOGTRA ###collar to #8(out of 60), and the chessies is set to #11. Both my dogs are pretty sensitive to the collar. ###I mostly just use the vibrate mode now anyway, I taught them to come to that-it's nicer than yelling or whistling.

I forgot to mention petroleum jelly. ###It is good for putting around the nose to stop the inhalation of foxtails and is useful for keeping open wounds clean until you can get the dog to the vet.

I think we're talking about two different things. ###EMT Gel is used in the field to stop bleeding when your dog gets cut. ###It's a must when you are unable to get to vet.
As far as conductivity goes, my pup is fine with the collar just straight on the neck. ###I use a Dogtra 2000.

Spectre17, ### ### When running around field trialling I always keep a pair of hemostats and NutriCal in my saddle bags, Nutrical or NutriStat will make a dog recover real fast from low blood sugar and the hemostats have a multitude of uses. You also might add padKote, tufffoot,or something similar like Coppertox, not only good for feet but is also a great anti-bacterial for cuts,gotta have ducttape too if no one has mentioned it, spare turn-on plugs for beepers or shockers too. ### ### ### Handcannon

Oops, forgot a coupla things. Health Certificates and Vaccination Papers(especially rabies) most states require these of non-residents, also try to keep photos of the dogs for ID purposes in case you loose em, waterbase horse fly spray(most can be used on dogs for flys,fleas and ticks but a lot cheaper than products for pets)Finally for those people travelling around competing take copies of dogs registration with you it sure makes the secretary's job easier at events. ### Done ### ### ###Handcannon
