Last night i bought a tritronics Sport 60 G2. It has a 1000 yrd range (just over a 1/2 mile). Will this be good for me while hunting in the field. I really can't see my dog running off that far especially while giving stimulation.

I was looking at the pro and field series but i just don't have the funds to spend that much money.

I typically will be hunting pheasants, grouse and quail on fairly flat terrain.

I would think it would be plenty. Remember, you will not have the range in the woods as you do on flat terrain.

The Tri-Tronics sport models are great collars. I started out with a Sport model years ago and now I use G2 Flyway Special and G2 Pro 500 models. TT makes a great collar and I have been nothing but impressed with their customer service over the years.

Take Care,

We have the Upland model that handles multiple receivers. Being able to control the beeper from the transmitter is a great feature. Our dogs have worn theirs with no problems in the water. I have nothing but great things to say about TriTronics stuff.
