Wingshooting Season: Prepare Your Retriever With SportDOG



If there’s anything that makes a holiday meal like a freshly harvested pheasant, duck, or goose, I don’t want to know what it is. If there’s any better way to harvest that bird than with a shotgun and your faithful retriever, I don’t want to know what it is. And if there’s a better way to get your best huntin’ buddy ready for the season than the WetlandHunter 425X from SportDOG Brand e-collars, well, please tell me all about it. The Wetland Hunter 425X is the smallest and lightest of SportDOG’s e-collars, so it’s well designed for the waterfowl-hunting environment, where space is a premium and durability is a requirement.

Consistency and timing are critical to developing your sporting dog, so the remote is quickly and easily operated without having to look at it–which lets you focus on your dog and not your equipment. With only a slight movement of the dial and the push of a button, you will be able to deliver a tone, vibration, or one of the 21 levels of static stimulation; you can reach out to 500 yards with any of the 425 models.

Wrapped in Realtree MAX-5 camo, this model looks outstanding…without standing out. It’s waterproof and submersible up to 25 feet, and comes with rechargeable batteries that feature a 2-hour quick charge. MSRP is $185, and it’s available now.
