Hey guys,

I'm looking for a nice hunter orange coat for Whistler because we're going to go in the woods during hunting season and I dont want him to be thought of as small game!

Any sellers, good websites, etc?

Thanks,

AT

Thanks to REM I picked up the 2011 version of this vest:

Gun Dog Supply, Gander Mountain and Ugly Dog Hunting are all fine choices as well.

Aca - as Aim said the cabelas skid Vest is great - reflective stripes are a plus - feild proven in the field by PIKE over 3yrs - when on sale in the bargain cave - get 2 - last time on sale I bought 6 for friends - PIKE at 60# the medium is a perfect FIT!

I bought a bright orange underbelly vest come chest protector for Darcy, it's not arrived yet as I bought it from an American web site on e-bay.

I appreciate this thread because I just made Finch a hunter orange coat, but it was my first attempt ever at such a project and it didn't hold up too well with her crazy off-leash running this afternoon... I think it is only good for on-leash walks.

I am really happy with this Rivers West jacket I just got for Finch (my homemade one was a bust). It is specifically designed for pointing breeds, so it fits Finch perfectly. I previously had trouble finding something that would fit her deep chest and tiny waist, so this is the winner so far!

Ok, so by reading some of your suggestions I ordered a mendota blaze orange collar as suggested by REM in a previous post, a chillydogs great white north coat for this cold winter suggested by a few members and the RiversWest orange coat for pointing breeds for the fall/early winter months...Any other "must haves"?

The skid vest with 3 orange Velcro straps gives great visibility. If you are handy with a sewing machine, cut the back off with the third strap and sew it off at the end. It fits really nice with just the two straps.

Got the collar but I bought an 18 inch! It's pretty darn big, maybe even too big! Does anyone think Whistler will grow into it? (I bought it @ 18 inches because the collar he has on said 18 on it; are there different systems for the lengths of size for collars?)

Oh darn, I guess I'll have to get him a 16! He's only 45 lbs right now!
