Reward your hunting companion with a RedHead® Dog Pit Blind

vcsPRAsset_2454_121278_71bab972-8c27-4994-aef9-989c954292fe_0

The RedHead® Dog Pit Blind helps your dog accomplish what it was born and bred to do – bring back ducks and geese and drop them in your hand. Your dog wants you to take your limit of ducks and geese as much as you do, maybe even more. If the birds don’t come in and you don’t drop them, Fido doesn’t get to retrieve them.

Sharp-eyed, wary waterfowl are alert for anything out of place and any unnatural movement. Don’t let your excited canine hunting companion give away your meticulously placed decoy spread. The RedHead Dog Pit blind provides essential concealment beneath its Realtree Max-5 600D coated fabric shell. Large and plentiful brush loops allow you to exactly match the blind to surrounding cover. Continue reading
