Blind Dog Outdoors
« on: August 26, 2016, 06:14:39 PM »
My oldest son, Ben (14), has come up with his own product line for the outdoor enthusiast. A couple years ago he made para-cord bracelets for everyone in the family. He found that he was really good at it and started making other products with it. Just recently he was able to make a lanyard to use on one of his first duck hunts and it came in handy to use with his duck calls.

Ben loves dogs and ducks - and while trying to think of a name for this new waterfowl product business, we looked at his dog (Harley) and thought up the name "Blind Dog Outdoors" - as Harley has only one eye while the other has a cataract and when he looks at us we often wonder if he can see anything at all. We both smiled and said, "Perfect!"

Ben is a member on the forum (YoungFowler) and spends more time on it than me - not surprisingly. He loves reading the articles that older and wiser hunters have posted for him to learn. And he's benefited greatly from the information shared.

Like his brother, Ben has decided to give a percentage of his profits to charities of his choice, including:
   - Ducks Unlimited - http://www.ducks.org/
   - Delta Waterfowl Puget Sound Charter - http://www.deltawaterfowl.org/welcome.html
   - Other Hunting Organizations that Support Kids - unsure what's out there

Products & Cost:

1. Call Lanyard - handmade, camo and brown patterns, comes with 4 paracord tactical survival clips and loops that secures 4 calls.
    - Price $20 +$7 shipping  (can meet face-to-face in Kitsap county)

2. Bracelet with Whistle - handmade, camo and brown patterns, comes with a clip and whistle.
    - Price $8 +$5 shipping (can meet face-to-face in Kitsap county)

3. Commission to make other items:
    - Dog collar
    - Gun sling
    - Dog leash
    - Other....

Send a PM to me or Ben (YoungFowler) to order via Paypal or check/cash.

* Pictured below is Ben wearing one of his lanyards after hunting with a friend and his dog.

** Second picture is of the "blind dog" - Harley.

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Put me down for funding on a lanyard for the first youth hunter to post or have posted for them their first fowl of the season.

Yep - Ben entered it under his Hunt-Wa account and for his brother too.

I haven't made a gun sling yet but it's just about the same as a bracelet. Except instead of the clip you use these  on the end
This is what it would look like.

I was at the Cop Store gun shop last week (in OKC) buying my M&P15, they had para cord slings made by a local wounded warrior. He was selling them for $25 and they were going like hot cakes. They were single point (AR) slings.

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

Any idea how many feet of cord are in a rifle sling? Just curious and all your stuff looks amazing.

Mr. Youngfowler....here is what I would like you to look into. I have a thread in guns/ammo about an ar10 build I am working on...or I should say my builder is working on. I would be interested in your ideas for a sling. I would need to be more robust as the gun is going to be heavy. I would need to include a pad(s) for the shoulders. Think of a normal sling with two over the should straps, like a Y connected at the top. In my mind if I could slip my head though the middle of the Y and have both shoulders bear the weight it would take the strain off a single shoulder. Now, considering the shape of the sling the rifle may end up being suspended on the horizontal vs. vertical. Can this be done? Are there safari style slings or combat slings you could model this from? I don't know. If you come up with an idea/design that could aid me in my efforts I would love to hear them. PM with ideas, questions, concerns, possibilities. This gun is in production now and will be hunted with in the fall of 2017.
