Why Every Hunter with Dogs Should Consider SafeShoot

By Nathan Unger

Hunting with dogs is a tradition we continued from our ancestors that colonized America centuries ago. However, the sport of hunting with dogs, though fewer, still remains vibrant and strong today. Dogs can be used for many forms of hunting. Most notably, hunters chase deer, small game, upland birds and waterfowl with dogs every year. This is not an exhaustive list by any means as hunters also hunt bears and wild boar with dogs too.

While hunting with dogs is very exciting it can be challenging as well when the animal simply follows its nose and instincts to track down wild game. Keeping this in mind, sometimes dogs can be unpredictable in their movements.DSC05801

For example, two winters ago I went feral hog hunting with some friends. The dogs caught a whiff of the wild pigs and took off like lightning. It was several minutes before we caught up with them.

SafeShoot is specifically designed to alert a hunter when a dog is down range of its owner. If you have been around dog hunting for any length of time you can probably think of a time when a dog had a close call with a bullet or, worse case scenario, get hit with bullet or a bullet ricochet. No hunter plans for it to happen, but unfortunately it happens. When your dog is downrange and jumps in the way your sensor will turn red and set off an alarm alerting you that your dog or partner is down range.

It’s easy to mistaken a dog for wild game in thick cover or brush, especially when adrenaline is flowing through your veins.

SafeShoot provides two harness sizes for the Dog Defender device to fit any size dog. The device works on a GPS and knows yours and your dog’s location even if you can’t visually see the dog downrange. The devices communicate together via RF communication to know when your dog is downrange.

This device is not limited to hunting dogs. The device can also and should also be considered for law enforcement dogs and military dogs while in combat.
Though anyone with a gun should remember to always identify their target first and foremost, accidents happen.

SafeShoot aims to decrease these friendly fire accidents and ultimately save your life or your friend’s life whether that is your hunting partner or your dog.
