  • For Immediate Release- New Polaris Ranger Specific Ecommerce Website!

    New Website Creates a Unique Shopping Experience in Powersports Industry

    GearUp2Go announced the launch of a sister-site built to provide a niche market of Polaris Ranger fans and owners with a unique shopping experience. The website offers accessories as well as resources and an online community.

     

    Appleton, WI March 25, 2015 – GearUp2Go announced the official launch of a new sister-site that is designed specifically for owners and fans of the Polaris Ranger utility terrain vehicle (UTV).

    “We have a lot of UTV customers, but particularly owners and riders of Polaris Rangers,” commented Michael Lutes, Business Operations Manager of GearUp2Go. “We felt there was a gap within the industry for shopping experiences that went above and beyond to create something special that was geared specifically toward these buyers.”

    As the name suggests, www.EverythingPolarisRanger.com is about everything related to Polaris Rangers. It provides a unique online shopping experience for the niche market of Polaris Ranger UTV riders through a simplified product offering, intuitive navigation and loyalty program. Buyers can quickly search for products and filter the results without sifting through accessories un-related to their machine.

    The website has a clean, non-cluttered design that is mobile friendly. Visitors can shop for UTV accessories specific to Polaris Ranger models as well as other popular UTV products that are guaranteed to fit Polaris Rangers. Free resources, including product reviews, rider experience stories, tips, how-to guides and new product release information are available to both visitors and members.

    “I’m excited about the launch of this new website,” Lutes stated. “It’s been in the works for a long time and we’re eager to see how well it can do. This site is kind of our test pilot. If it performs as well as we think it will, we anticipate following up with additional UTV or ATV specific websites.”

    The www.EverythingPolarisRanger.com website will co-exist with www.GearUp2Go.com as a complement to the company’s current offerings. Future plans for the site include additional product offerings for “Parts” and “Maintenance” categories of products.

  • Shed Dogs and Antlers Yield Solid Deer Management Insights

    Deer hunting is now over in most of the country and shed hunting season is the next place us crazy deer hunters and land managers are turning our attention!  Well, using a shed dog to find antlers can be a valuable tool in managing your properties for monster bucks!  Shed dog training is wildly growing in popularity for tons of reasons but the management insight it adds is invaluable!  Not to mention is tons of fun and get you out of the cabin when there is not much else going on in the woods.

    Solid Shed Antler Proof:

    It is undeniable proof that if you find a shed antler of a buck, it has lived through the toughest part of the winter and you should have a chance to hunt it next year.  There is no better proof that the monster you have gotten so close to has actually made it through the hunting season….the neighbors didn’t kill him….it didn’t get hit by a truck…he didn’t die of old age or some other type of dieses.  HE IS ALVIE!!!

    Shed Antlers Are Proof of Travel, Feeding, and Bedding Areas:

    Finding an antler in an area is undeniably a please that deer has traveled and will most likely continue to travel.  Assuming there was no pressure that made that deer travel to that area, then it is fair to assume the place you found the antler is part of that monster’s home range.  It is very likely that you will also be able to tell what type of area it is for that deer based on your knowledge of deer in the area or possible even in conjunction with trail cam videos.  Depending on where you find the antler the area could be a bedding area, feeding area, or a travel corridor.

    Shed Antlers Help Score Deer:

    It is hard to score deer on hoof or by trail camera…now many people claim they can, and granted some are very good at it, but one thing no one can argue with is proof.  Antlers provide hard tangible evidence that your approximate score of that animal was within the range of accurate.  And if you are lucky enough to find a match set of that deer then you are even closer to the promise land of establishing a realistic gross Boone and Crockett score of that Deer.

    More Antlers More Deer Herd Management Info:

    All of these advantages of having the antlers provide management insights with or without a shed dog but what a shed dog does is allows you to collect a much larger data sample…which is just more shed antlers in this case.  Shed dogs keen noes allow them to find antlers that humans eyes would certainly have walked right by in the woods.  The extra antlers you will find with using a trained shed dog in conjunction with other management tools (such as trail cameras and surveys) will yield you a much better holistic view of the deer herd you have on your property or wherever you hunt!  So if you have not looked into training a dog to find deer shed antlers, now is the time!

  • Shed Dog Training- Summer’s Ending!

    Hope everyone got to enjoy their summer! As I write this, the temperature has dropped 35 degrees since yesterday!  Living in northern Wisconsin really limits the length of our summer type weather! We try to take advantage of it as much as possible! We also try to find great ways to include our furry kid, Reba!

    Reba is a British lab and enjoys most things that labs do! She loves to swim and jump off docks! We work with the bumper and don’t have the snow to deal with during our few summer months. Leaping to catch a Frisbee is a favorite past time too! Summer is a wonderful time to start or refresh and continue your shed antler training. It’s great exercise for all of us! Please, always stay hydrated and keep your pets safe from overheating too!

    Depending on the day’s plans and weather conditions we will have a short one antler session or perhaps find several! Sometimes we take turns with our activities if we have a great day and time available. We’ve found that playing different “games” keeps Reba on top of things. We may play Frisbee, which doesn’t require a stay or a sit. Playing bumper means practicing sit, stay, release, and return with a hand off. Sometimes we go back to the soft shed that came with her DogBone training kit and play fetch.  Shed hunting calls for working that nose and returning with the treasure and being willing to give it up! Reba has been able to learn all this and enjoys it all.

    While this is fun for her it is a great refresher so she stays on top of all the different activities. She knows what “Let’s find some bones” means. There is no visible cue when we work on shed hunting, but when she hears the command she knows and is instantly excited. (There have been a few occasions where she “finds the bones” even when not asked. She had discovered where I kept them, while she couldn’t access them she knew and kept letting me know she knew!) We have not tested her or entered any competitions but she is performing the way we ask her to and that is what counts whether competing or just being a great partner.

    Reba is a well-rounded dog. She loves to play/work but equally loves snuggling as well. She has a wonderful temperament and is the perfect dog for my son who can be a little overwhelming I’m sure.

    I believe keeping her active is a huge part of keeping her happy. When a dog is happy and active they are less likely to find trouble and that keeps the owner happy.

    Shed hunting has been a great extension of the list of activities we enjoy together. The training is not hard like I originally believed it to be. Training doesn’t need to be expensive either. Doing the training yourself saves you money and can bond you and your dog in yet another way! As our partner, friend, family member, I think they deserve to be happy! A trained dog is also a safer dog. The more you work with Fido the more he will trust you and listen to you!

     As we look forward to frost this weekend we know snow isn’t far behind. We will continue to “find the bones” even in the snow. While it looks different depending on the time of year, shed hunting training is a year round activity to work on together. After all, the NOSE knows, in rain, snow or shine!

  • What is NASHDA Shed Dog Trials? Are They Right For Your Dog? Yes!

    We often get questions emailed to us about what NASHDA is and who can or should compete....well we wanted to address these questions for everyone.  If you ever need more information never hesitate to email us, we are here to grow the sport and support those in the shed hunting community!


          NASHDA... What is NASHDA?  Who can compete?  Who Should Compete in NASHDA Shed Dog Events?  Who is Ready to Join NASHDA?

    NASHDA’s goal is to create a fun event for those looking to use their dogs to find shed antlers. Our Qualifying Events run from May 1st to the season ending World Shed Dog Championship in April.

    Qualifying events will be set during the season to give dogs a chance to Qualify for that season ending NASHDA World Shed Dog Championship. In qualifying events, the dogs will compete against a standard and not each other to receive a Qualifying ribbon. Once a dog receives a Qualifying ribbon they will be invited to enter the World Shed Dog Championship at the end of that season.

    Qualifying events may also be listed as a Shed Dog Hunt test. For the hunt test, the dogs compete against the Qualifying standard and not each other. Dogs that Qualify at an event marked a NASHDA Shed Dog Hunt Test will earn a NASHDA Shed Hunting Dog Junior leg/ribbon. Once a dog receives 6 leg/ribbons they will receive a NASHDA Junior Shed Hunting Dog certificate. Junior in the NASHDA hunt test division is a description of course difficulty, not age of the dog. We hope, as we gain more interest, to add more levels of difficulty to the courses. This will create more NASHDA certificate levels.

    The World Shed Dog Championship is an invitational event. A dog must qualify during the current season to be invited to enter the World Shed Dog Championship. At the Championship, the dogs compete against each other for trophies and prizes. Dogs in this event are put into three categories: Junior (dogs under two years of age), Amateur Handler (for Amateur Handlers only) and Open (Professional and Amateur Handlers).

    A Qualifying course is set up with 6 hidden sheds. The judge will post the time length that the sheds must be found in. Since the courses vary from site to site in size and cover the judge will post the time at the event on the day of the event. Please see the rules for more general information on finding and retrieving of the sheds.

    We hope this gives you a general idea of our NASHDA events. If you have further questions please contact us. Again, our goal is to set up fun events for people to enjoy working with their dogs.

  • Shed Dog Training- 5 Keys For Having A Successful Antler Hunting Dog

    Shed Dog Training- 5 Keys For Having A Successful Antler Hunting Dog

    Starting your shed dog training out with the correct fundamentals is essential to making sure you are building on a solid foundation that ensures success for both you and your dog shed dog! Follow these steps and you will be sure to have a leg up on the ensuring progress and successes with your shed dog training and shed hunting adventures. If you have contemplated shed dog training and finally made a decision to pursue the sport you have taken the first big step, but here are the next in line!

    Five Keys For Shed Dog Training

    1.) Get Your Dog Excited About Shed Antlers
    2.) Always Reward Your Dog For a Job Well Done
    3.) Be Habitual in Your Training Regiment
    4.) Follow a Good Shed Dog Training System
    5.) Have Fun With Shed Dog Training and Hunting

     

    1.) Get your dog Excited about finding shed antlers
    The first several experiences during the first few months with your dog and sheds antlers is very important in establishing your dog's interest level. You will want to be super excited about the sheds and make sure you are turning the toss and retrieve process into a game. At this point you want to give tons of praise every time your dogs retrieves the antler. You will want to use a real small antler that does not have sharp tines or you can use a soft antler, such as the training antlers made by Dog Bone Hunter products. By using a smaller or soft antler you are reducing the chance your dog will get poked or shy away from antlers because of a bad experience.

    2.) Reward your shed dog and build confidence
    One of the fundamental keys to shed dog training, well any dog training for that matter, is to provide plenty of positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is key to letting your dog know what they have just done is good. Dogs minds are fairly simple, they are inherently pack animals and want to please pack members with a higher status, and because of this this understand the things they should and shouldn't do by pack reaction. They understand a positive reaction and repeat that and negative reactions and don't repeat it, but this is often not picked up instantly. That is why repetition is extremely important to establish this ingrained reaction. For example, if every time you heavily praise your puppy or dog bring back a shed antler, they will be encouraged to continue this process, but if you just half heartedly say good job you dog will have a difficult time catching on to if your response is positive, neutral, or negative.

    Positive reinforcement for shed dog training is a simple concept but can't be emphasized enough. This can often play a key role in the development and speed of your training.

    3.) Be consistent in your training regimen and schedule
    Dogs training is similar to training humans in some ways...and creating good habits is one of those. They say it takes humans 21 days of doing something to create an ingrained habit.

    For real? How many of you have told yourself you were going to start working out but by day 3 the desire and drive really started falling apart, and by day 6 or 7 the program was all but over...well that is mainly because the habit was not created and the “training” fell apart. I certainly can’t say I have not been one of these people from time to time. But on the other hand when you start something and really get it ingrained in the fabric of who you are, it is, well a habit and hard to break!

    Well I am not sure if dogs training also takes 21 days but I am certain it takes tons of repetition to truly engrain a good habit in your hunting dog. As this is the case, make sure you are setting aside a chunk of every day to train. Even if it is only 10 minutes here and there, mixed with some longer training sessions throughout the week it is import to engrain habit often and consistently. Even if you live in town, don’t use this as an excuse, your backyard is plenty big enough to train, you are looking to build those fundamentals, not huge shed hunting exercises. Use what you have to conduct your training, be creative there is always way to create good shed dog training opportunities! Even a basement will be sufficient for antler training winter months!

    4.) Follow a good shed dog training system
    There are several shed dog training guides on the market, both DVD’s and books. I would suggest one or several of these to learn different styles and types of training. They are all fairly easy to follow and are done with the “normal” dog guy in mind, not professional trainers. Here are a few great options for shed dog training guides that we have had good success with and our customers really like:

     

    5.) Have fun with shed dog training and antler hunting
    This might be the most important step! Having fun with this sport is what it is all about. Shed antler hunting with a dog is about getting out in the woods in January-April and really just having a great time while finding some antlers. Presumably once January-April hits you have spent many hours training and it is time to put all that antler training to practice.

    This week has been so exciting! Mom introduced those new “bones” to me this week. She has let me play with all of them that came in that big box that I had a hard time leaving alone last week. I was so excited.

    I love these real “bones”! I have a hard time waiting; I want to grab them from Mom as soon as she has them! I want to keep them for myself sometimes too! Mom has to remind me to slow down. I have figured out that grabbing these “bones” is a little different from the original “bone” we played with. That one was soft and easy to grab. These new “bones” are hard. They have hard points on them too. I have figured out that I must approach slowly when I want to pick them up.

    I love the way they smell. I know that smell and am still working with the wind when I can’t see the “bones”. Mom sometimes has to command me to “fetch it up”. Sometimes I will run up to it and wonder if I should grab it, like I said they can be tricky. Mom encourages me to “fetch it up”! I then find a way to grab a hold of it.

    I bring the “bones” back to Mom and she has a special bag that she puts them in. I have tried to take them back out of that bag, but I guess that is kind of a no-no! I just know they are in there and want to take them out. Sometimes I would like to keep a “bone” for myself. I will go get it and run right past Mom. I have tried to lay down with it for a little chew. Mom doesn’t want me to do this. She reminds me to bring it to her and give. Once in a while she will let me hold it. She likes to take my picture when I do this.

    I know where she keeps that special bag full of the “bones”! They are behind an extra door in the garage. When I get into the garage I like to check that door. Once in a while that will even get Mom to get them out to play!

    All of our snow has melted but I heard Mom telling my boy (that’s the little guy who lives in the house with us) that we’re going to get more tonight. I’m hoping we get to go play with the “bones” in the snow! I also like to help shovel. I catch the snow when they throw it and love to just run and jump in it! I’m thinking this upcoming week should be fun!

    Well, Mom says it’s time for my boy to get off the bus soon. That means it’s almost dinner time. I’ll let you know how much fun we have the snow!
