Thread: Training e-collar & Hunting e-collar

  1. #1

    Default Training e-collar & Hunting e-collar

    Do you guys and gals use the same collar for both applications or do you use one for training and another for hunting. The reason I ask is because while reading over some reviews on various forums it seems like a fair number of guys will have one for each application. Is this because a simpler unit is better for hunting conditions or they just have money to blow?

    One of the reasons I love my Dogtra collars is because of how small they are , and that they come equipped with landyards. In real world hunting situations, my transmitter is always hanging with my calls, and whistle. Weather I'm in a lay out blind goose hunting, or waist deep in water in a beaver swamp, I always know where the transmitter is. And Yes, it works well in training also.

    I have 2 collars that are about 8 years old now, and no issues with either collar.

    I'm not a fan of my TT Flyway Special for hunting (tube style). The transmitter is big and there's no way to put it on a lanyard. It's great for training, but I'm glad that I rarely need it while hunting.

    My original collar is a TT sport basic. I then won a Pro 500 at a seminar. I use the basic for hunting and the 500 for training. I had planned on selling the basic but like that controller for hunting so kept it.

    PRO 500 for training and Sport Basics for hunting. Based on transmitter size really plus when I get home from hunting and go to train I don't have to dig out my collar or worry about leaving it when I head out to hunt. Rarely need it though so it may not matter to you.
