Useful hints and tips

The battery life of any tracking device will determine if you get your hound home safe.  All the claims of extended life, sleep mode, on and on, don't mean a thing when you cannot get a signal on your dog.  Garmin and GPS equipment out there are the best tools to come along in a long time.  We remember before tracking collars, you spent more time hunting your dogs then hunting.  Just remember - if you have a hound that will bay up game in say - a culvert.  If you have the kind of dog that will stay in the game's face until it no longer has a voice - then your GPS will probably be dead.  Put a West Coast Telemetry Tag-A-Long on the same strap as your GPS and you will have a back up in case that GPS goes dead.  8,000 hours works out to be almost a year.  If you haven't found your dog by then chances are you never will.  $99 is small price to pay for peace of mind.

Gary's Hunting Stories

A hard-learned lesson about a great hound that had staying power.  Billie would stay in a cat's face until she had it.  Especially if it was in a culvert.  She would bay at it until she was hoarse and had no voice.  Only after three days she did give up the battle and come out.  Now on this occassion if Gary had been using Garmin - we would never have gotten her back.  Three days of trying to get a signal on her; then finally with a roof-mounted non-directional antenna we heard a faint beep, beep, beep.  We followed the sound as it got stronger and stronger.  There she was, coming along the river.  Hungry, tired and glad to see us.  Telemetry brought her back to us.  Tag-A-Longs mount on the same strap with Garmin GPS for only $99, small price to pay to bring a valuable warrior home.

Helpful Hints & Tips

You have checked all your equipment.  Batteries are good, all the collars turn off and on.  You have leashes and tie outs.  Your truck is in good shape.  The hounds have had their shots.  You are certain you have prepared for the up coming season.  Nothing can ensure a disaster like having an id plate on your hound's collar that doesn't have the correct phone number on it.  A new collar with an id nameplate is a small price to pay to "Bring your hound home safe with WCTS"

Chessie's paid hunt with MANAC (Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force & Coast Guard)

She is becoming a great waterfowl dog.  We were excited to hunt the Skagit Valley in Washington.  The guides said if she was behaved we could bring her.  She is very well behaved.  One of the other guys on the hunt shot down a duck that went into a blackberry briar.  The guide's dog looked but could not find the bird.  Chessie was given a chance and she looked and looked.  Then out she came with the duck.  At the end of the day the guides were so impressed with her they told us we could bring her hunting anytime we came.  So like proud parents we love to brag her up.

Helpful Hints & Tips

If your Garmin GPS collars do not seem to be getting out as well as when they were new; a quick check can give you an idea of where the problem is - trade out the battery with another one from one of your other collars, if the problem is still there - your next test should be to replace the antenna, it can be internally cracked or broken.  We sell replacement antennas for the Garmin GPS collars.  We also sell on Ebay.

Helpful Hints and Tips

Hunting Season is about to start - add this to your check list - check the id collars on all your hounds.  Be sure the id plate has your correct phone numbers on them.  If the collars are in bad shape - replace them.  A hound with no id is a lost dog with very little chance to be returned to you.  We sell dayglo collars with a nameplate for $7.  A small price to pay to get your hound back.

Helpful Hints & Tips

Hog hunting is year round but sometimes it is necessary to inspect and examine your equipment to keep it in top performance.  One good test is get your Tracking Collar out and your beeper box, pull the magnet out and insure the collar comes on, then replace the magnet to be sure it shuts off.  If your tracking collar fails to start up you may have a stuck switch.  DO NOT beat the collar on the work bench, as the switch is a small glass tube.  Leave the magnet out for 24 hours if it doesn’t start up, call us we will glad talk to you about other solutions.

Chessie's Mischievous Antics

If she meets us at the gate and smiles at us, we know she has done something while we were gone.  She tells on herself.  Generally she finds something to drag out into the yard.  Once it was a pair of pink pajama bottoms.  She takes the wash cloth off the sink and puts it by the back door.  We videoed her doing it once, the minute we were out the gate she had that wash cloth.  Her game, she has taught us how to play.  She is a wonderful water dog and we love her.  She is a pet and well as a working dog.  But most of all she is our Brown Clown.

Helpful Hints and Tips

Keep your dogs cool in the hot weather.  Our four legged warriors get over heated just like we do.  Freeze up some doggie pops, use an ice tray, water and a little beef broth to encourage them to chomp them up.  Helps cool them down and they will pester you for more.
