    Default Water transportation

    Ive been looking for a better way to carry water into the fields for training and hunt test other than just using a few milk jugs. I have been doing some research on jerry cans that have a spigot. I have found a few but most of them have mixed reviews. Is there any that yall would recommend. Im wanting to keep it between the side of the truck and my dog box so the narrow profile is what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance.

    I thought about doing that, Im just concerned about attaching it to the truck. I would rather not have to drill into the side of my truck. How did you go about doing that?

    What Dr. Ed linked is what I use. I haul 7 dog crates, 3 wingers, birds, etc in my van and two of the containers fit just right and I've never run out of water for a training day or HT/fT. Work fine for me and better option for me than the pvc pipe thing.

    I have done this in the past. 4" pvc fits nicely up under the bed rail. Long bed Ford holds about 4 gallons. My truck is double walled and I used self tapping screws to attached two adjustable rubber fire extinguisher mounts. If I remember right I bought the mounts from Cabelas. Once you have the pvc tube fabricated it takes about 5 minutes to install. Can be removes or reinstalls in seconds.

    Or for just one or two dogs I like these. Just search "Drinking Spot"

    We used the same method but use a 5 gal water container and put a faucet spigot on it. Turn it upright for traveling / down for use. If course it is not slim like the camper one above

    I used the PVC setup in my truck. I fabricated my own mounting straps out of aluminum strap I bought at Lowes. Have a wooden box in my truck bed and just hang it on the side of the box above the wheel well. Works well unless I am parked on a hill where the faucet is higher than the other end. I also put a petcock on the top rear of the PVC so air can vet in for better water flow. Then I can turn the petcock off when traveling so water doesn't slosh out the vent. Well, when I remember to close it.
    I think they were all made to shoot because if they were not why did they give them that whirr of wings that moves you suddenly more than any love of country . . . I think that they were made to shoot and some of us were made to shoot them and if that is not so well, never say we did not tell you that we liked it.

    That's what I use when I don't have my trailer with me. Worked well for many years. Just tied it to the corner of the bed to avoid spillage. And it's easy to refill on the road.
