Thanks for the info. We didnt realize they would be so heavy. Maybe we wont look into those much more.
it's not really so much the weight the vests are made for hogs they won't do ya much good for bear due to the different wounds the dogs recieve from the differnt ainimals. i don't use vests on my hounds at all just on the pits when we're catching hogs.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
