Dog Boots

I have learned that there is a need for paw protection where quail, pheasant and prairie chickens hang out in Oklahoma and Kansas. They call these things sand burs and although I have seen them in sandy areas in New England, I don’t recall ever seeing them in Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock covers.

Nasty little things they are and could put a halt to a hunt and cause a bird dog some pain. We don’t want either, so measures are called for.

There are several choices in dog boots including a variety of DYI types, but I’ve decided to go with Lewis Dog Boots. They are favored by many upland hunters–so I’ve ordered a set of four for Tucker. The vented type are suggested in warm climates.

I’ve long done business with Gun Dog Supply and was glad to see that Steve Snell of Gun Dog Supply carried them. Ya–a little promotion there. Steve is a fellow dog man and upland hunter and it follows that he is well aware of what works and what doesn’t.

I’ll report on them following next weekend’s adventure.
