Water in the Field
Gun Dog Magazine
It is not uncommon for my wife and I to walk for three to four miles on a sharptail
hunt in 70- to 80-degree early season weather and find ourselves getting weak
because of dehydration. You, your hunting partners and dog need water.
We are not into solid waste recycling yet
in our part of the country, but we do take advantage of the plastic
pop containers we throw away by using them as
our canteens. Photos one and two illustrate two ways in which I use plastic
pop containers in the field. The 16 oz. plastic containers fit
well in a game bag
and I find they will not leak even if they are abused. Some of my containers
are a couple of years old and still work fine. You can also use the large 64
oz. pop containers as ice blocks for your cooler. They work great because the
plastic does not break when refrozen and you have cold drinking water when
they start to thaw.
Remember, water during your hunt will allow
you, your partner and your dog to have a more enjoyable time in
the field and you are also recycling a throw-away.
