The Ultimate Dog Kennel Plus 5 Great Gun Dog Products

The Ultimate Dog Kennel Plus 5 Great Gun Dog Products

New products that bird hunters will want to take a look at include a great new traveling kennel, new hunting boots from Nike, a slick new youth shotgun that's incredibly priced and more.


You know Italy makes damn fine shotguns, but some of the best shells are loaded in the 'boot country ' too. B&P has been in the game for over 130 years. Well-known by target shooters, the company also makes premium duck and pheasant loads. Expect a more even pattern at the point of impact€¦and more dead birds. Available in a smattering of offerings from .410 to 12-gauge.


Whether you refer to it as 'force-fetch ' or 'conditioned retrieve, ' taking a bird dog through the process is no walk in the park. Deadfowl Trainers have a unique construction that helps teach proper hold. The hard, dangling head discourages shaking, plus liquid scent can be injected into the soft body for added realism. $25 |


You spent all that money on a pup with champion bloodlines, trained every morning for the fall and then feed him generic dog food? Stop. To get the best out of your bird dog, he needs premium kibble and Victor's nutrient-dense lineup will fit any working retriever, pointer or flusher. Victor's formulas contain no corn, wheat or gluten, resulting in an easily digestible food that requires less intake for optimal performance afield. $45 (40-lb bag) |


Pheasant season can be a grind, particularly if you're walking all day to shoot one rooster. Give your feet a break with the SFB Jungle 8 ' boot from Nike. Available in Realtree Xtra, the SFB is constructed of a breathable canvas upper and features a drop-in midsole equipped to wick away moisture. The outsole is built for rugged terrain with an aggressive traction pattern, multisurface grip and puncture protection. $125 |


Every kid should start a hunting career with a pump — after becoming proficient with the ol' Red Ryder, of course. And the CZ 628 and 620 give you an excuse to spend a little cash on Junior, but also have a bit of fun on your own with these slick pumps offered in 28- and 20-gauge. We've hunted South Dakota a few times with sub-gauge guns and this Turkish beauty clocks in at under six pounds, so it's an easy carry on those long walks for roosters. $429 |


This new kennel for traveling hunters will ensure your gun dog travels safe from home to field. The G1 from Gunner Kennels is available in intermediate (up to 75 pounds) and large (110 pounds for those gorilla Labs), and is the only double-walled roto-molded kennel on the market. Virtually indestructible, the G1 has a 5-star crash-test rating and features a lockable paddle-latch door, tie-down pins, skid-resistant rubber feet, strong carry handles, drain plug and more. Lifetime warranty included. $500-$600 |
