    When really cold, like low single F digets and minus F numbers I like canvas best. Seems that plastics are cold on the teeth and I get more dropping and mouthing. Duckdon

    Thanks for the advice guys. I couldn't even get my pup interested in the plastic bumpers. He is loving the canvas bumpers in the snow. Thanks again.

    only if you have them in the house or cab of truck so they are hot on the cold snow.
    at air temp snow will not stick. I use olive drab canvas with a duck tossed in the bucket to make um stink good!

    Haven't you heard? We have Magic snow here.

    I do keep the bumpers in the bed of the truck, so that's not it. It's really only a problem if I want to throw the same bumper more than once and nowadays I have so many bumpers I am able to do that.
