Just out of interest, does or has, anyone on here used a tracking collar on their dog/s?

I've been out once with some lads that used them to great effect, and the americans etc use them a lot.

I know the aussies and kiwis use them on their pig dogs,as they can end up miles away, but I can't see much use for them on running dogs here in the UK.

Cheers.

Chart - I can, and if you cannot, maybe your not thinking hard enough.

Rob - Yes, but that's not what this thread is about.

Simo - thanks, but i suppose you cannot discuss this. Out of interest do you know what kit they use?

Simo - that would be good mate, cheers!

Chart - Sorry, wasn't meant to be so cryptic. An example of their use would be, before the ban, running large quarry such as deer, with a dog in the daytime, in wooded, or very rough undulating ground, and the dog being led on a merry dance out of your sight, and then pulling down the quarry. Obviously it could not be retrieved, and if the dog returned you could lose the quarry. So a gps would be handy. Another example might be hunting up on big old rough moors or mountainsides, and putting a fox up, and the hunt, leading the dog waaaaay out of your sight, it'd be nice to know which direction to start walking. Thats the best i can do on here mate.

Nancy - do you know what collars?

Cheers mate, i thought it might be the Garmin Astro, that's the new one. By all accounts, the most popular. Pretty pricey though! :thumbs:
