Beeper collars are an absolute must if you are running a big ranging pointing dog or hunt your pointer in heavy cover. But don't overlook the usefulness of these collars for keeping tabs on any dog in the field. We use a beeper collar on our labs whenever upland hunting. Additionally, using them while shed hunting helps you keep track of your dog. In any situation where you simply want to keep track of your gun dog, go to one our beeper collars we carry in the SportDOG brand or Tri-Tronics brand.
