Canine Cargo Carrier: The Next Generation in Dog Transportation

After years of experience in building, buying and transporting with just about every type of dog
trailer out there, Get My Point, LLC has developed a break-through in dog transportation.
Whether you have show dogs, rescue dogs, hunting dogs, sled dogs, police/military dogs or you are a dog transportation company, we have a trailer for you. Our trailers are designed around our Honeycomb Dog Pods, one of the safest dog boxes on the market today.
Each pod can be put in or taken out of the trailer for versatility like no other dog trailer on the
market. The most popular size, the 3-dog Honeycomb Dog Pod, can give you a 6-, 9- or 12-dog trailer in a trailer body less than 10 feet long. If the trailer is made 11 inches taller, it will hold 4 pods of 5 dogs each and have a trailer that carries 20 dogs in a trailer body 10 feet long.

This still allows you to take a pod of 3 out and put it in the back of any half-ton vehicle for short trips and then put it back in the trailer when you need more dogs transported. All with plenty of
storage, water and custom features that are not available elsewhere.
The top priority in our tandem, torsion axle, steel roll-bar cage design is safety. Creating a very
secure structure for your dogs is our goal.

Each trailer is fully insulated and has a ventilation system that creates a draft-free and dust-free
environment, unlike conventional dog trailers that put your dogs in drafty, dusty and vehicle
exhaust-filled conditions because they ventilate through the dog box.
Our one-piece polyethylene roto mold Honeycomb Dog Boxes provide protection from extreme heat, cold, road
noise, as well as vibration. Our Canine Cargo Carriers have their own 12-volt battery system that runs the ventilation system so dogs can be left behind in a safe, secure environment.
Dogs are unique in the fact that they ride with their head on the floor. Imagine yourself being in
an aluminum or stainless steel box driving down the interstate with a ventilation system that blows through your dog box while your head vibrates on the floor. If you did, you would not put your dog in that situation.
Another feature of our Canine Cargo Carrier that no other dog trailer has is our ramps that drop down and work like a table to assist you in handling your dog.
From our secure bulldog hitch to our heavy-duty rear bumper, we offer the most complete dog transportation system available today. Visit getmypointllc.com for more information.



Mack’s Lure Adds Scent-dispersing Inline ‘ScentFlash’ Flasher To Lineup

THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM MACK’S LURE

Mack’s Lure, Inc., manufacturer of the popular Sling Blade, Double D Dodger and Flash Lite Troll, has added to their extensive line of dodgers and attractors with the ScentFlash UV Triangle Flasher. This one-of-a-kind 8” in-line spinning flasher features a patented scent release system that is sure to be a game changer in the salmon, trout and kokanee fishing markets.

MACK’S LURE’S BOB LOOMIS DETAILS THE NEW SCENTFLASH, WHICH COMBINES A 360-DEGREE INLINE FLASHER WITH THE ABILITY TO LOAD THE DEVICE WITH SCENT PRODUCTS. (MACK’S LURE)

“We’re very excited to release yet another innovative product,” Mack’s Lure President Bob Schmidt said. “The ScentFlash has been extensively field tested and is guide-proven to help attract and catch more fish.”

THE SCENTFLASH COMES IN SIX DIFFERENT COLOR COMBO PATTERS. (MACK’S LURE)

The ScentFlash is easy to use. Simply un-snap the lid on the flasher, apply scent to the premium pad, and snap back into place. The ScentFlash will then release scent through the water as is rotates, attracting fish with incredible flash and a trail of scent.

BY DEPRESSING TWO “DOGEARS,” THE HALVES OF THE FLASHER COME APART. THE PRODUCT COMES WITH A SCENT PAD, WHICH ARE ALSO SOLD SEPARATELY. (MACK’S LURE)

“Not only does this 360-degree attractor come in high UV body colors, as well as high UV tapes to attract fish, but it can also be filled up with scent, which is a must-have for today’s angler,” Sales & Marketing Director Bob Loomis said. “Unlike any other attractor, you can fill the scent pad with scented oils or gels — or load the cavity with scented tuna, herring or anchovy filets. Whatever your preferred scent is, the ScentFlash will hold it, then disperse it while trolling to catch more fish.”

ANOTHER OPTION WITH THE SCENTFLASH IS TO ADD TUNA TO THE SCENT CHAMBER. (MACK’S LURE)

The ScentFlash is available in two high UV body colors — Chartreuse UV and Clear UV — with six high UV color options to fit your needs. Each ScentFlash includes one (1) premium ScentFlash Pad, designed specifically to hold and disperse scent throughout the water. These premium pads can be cleaned and re-used for multiple uses, though they’re also sold separately as a four-pack.

Considering Adding An E-Bike To Your Hunting, Fishing Arsenal?

THE FOLLOWING MATERIAL HAS BEEN PROVIDED BY RAD POWER BIKES

By Dan Nelson, Customer Experience Specialist at Rad Power Bikes of Seattle

While much of the use of electric bicycles is geared towards changing the game in urban transportation, we’ve found that there are plenty of uses for those among us looking to get off the beaten path.

E-BIKES CAN PROVIDE NORTHWEST HUNTERS AND ANGLERS FASTER ACCESS BEHIND LOCKED GATES, BUT DO CHECK WITH LANDOWNERS FOR THEIR POLICIES AS THEY VARY BY OWNERSHIP AND JURISDICTION, EVEN BETWEEN WILDLIFE AREAS IN WASHINGTON’S CASE. (RAD POWER BIKES)

Whether you’re interested in nature, an RVer looking for an alternative to a bulky tow-behind, or a hunter or angler needing assistance in getting to your secluded spot, there are countless outdoor enthusiasts that can expand and revolutionize their experiences by adding an electric bicycle to their arsenal of outdoor equipment.

Background on Ebikes The electric bicycle industry has seen a rapid expansion recently because ebikes amplify the benefits of a standard pedal bicycle by also offering the assistance of a powerful, quiet, and efficient electric motor, without significant drawbacks.

Federal regulations allow an electric bicycle to be classified as a traditional bicycle rather than a motorized vehicle as long as its motor is under 750 watts and its assisted speed does not exceed 20 mph, allowing them to be used in many of the same places as standard bicycles.

The addition of a powerful and easy to use motor allows riders to not only breeze up hills, but also to extend their rides further to areas that may otherwise be inaccessible with other alternative modes of transportation.

Motor technologies have been improving significantly, which is great for people riding in the outdoors as they are likely to be pushing them to the limits more often than riders on pavement.

The most common types of motors on ebikes are either rear hub mounted motors, which offer the greatest ease of use and maintenance, and mid-drive motors, which are harder to use and require more maintenance but offer greater efficiency and power.

The options for motor assistance are typically in the form of a throttle, which will fully engage the motor with a twist or the press of a button, or varying levels of pedal assist, which allow the rider to cycle through levels based on how much effort they’re looking to put in.

All of our models are outfitted with a twist throttle and five levels of pedal assistance. This gives all the power to the rider, whether they’re looking to zip up and down the beach with the throttle alone, or they’re instead using the motor to compliment their own pedaling to go for a long ride through the woods on the path less traveled.

Hunters & Anglers The ability to get themselves and their gear through the woods quickly, quietly, and with as little effort as possible, are all very important and luckily, also areas that ebikes excel at.

Most ebikes max out at 20 mph assisted speed, to conform with federal regulations, so doing scouting runs or getting to and from hunting stands and fishing holes can be done much more quickly than on foot.

These speedy passages are also quite stealthy due to the quiet nature of electric motors, which will help hunters avoid frightening wildlife or giving them knowledge of their presence.

A further benefit to help decrease their chance of being noticed is the lack of a scented trail left both by your walking and continued presence. The rubber tires of an ebike leave much less of a human footprint than walking and the lack of effort required will also save you from sweating, further assisting in blending in.

While there are other options that offer similar benefits, ebikes may have a leg up by their regulatory classification being that of a bicycle under federal regulations, meaning that they may be usable in many places where comparable alternatives aren’t allowed to go.

Legality This leads to a difficult topic that has been evolving regarding electric bikes, where should they be allowed?

While the laws pertaining to electric bike legality in cities, on roads, and on bike paths, have been more and more finely tuned recently, whether or not electric bikes are allowed or should be allowed in parks wilderness, and recreation areas that prohibit motorized vehicles is a topic of debate. These rules are rather convoluted and far from all encompassing, so it is highly recommended to check with your local authorities themselves to get their perspective.

The argument is typically centered around congestion and the increased wear and tear that electric bikes would offer trails. Perhaps it is wishful thinking but an alternate perspective is that increasing the number of people that are able to enjoy the outdoors, and in turn creating more stewards of nature, could play an important role in helping to preserve our natural spaces. This could potentially lead to greater advocacy and funding by people whom would otherwise be indifferent.

Conclusion Electric bikes are a great option to help experience the outdoors in a whole new way!

Rad Power Bikes is filled with outdoor lovers, myself included being raised by park rangers turned scientists, so finding ways to help others experience the wonders that the outdoors have to offer, and creating more stewards for mother nature, is something that we take a lot of pride in.

Check out the community photos collection on our website to see what you’re missing, or share your own so that your favorite spot can be appreciated by others as well. Whether you’re a seasoned outdoorsmen or somebody that rarely leaves the pavement, we’d love to see where ebikes take you!

Note: Seattle-based Rad Power Bikes is offering between $300 and $400 off their 2018 ebike models this holiday season.

The sale will launch on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday at their Ballard and Vancouver, B.C. showrooms, then take place nationally online on Cyber Monday.

Because Rad Power Bikes already has wholesale prices through their consumer-direct approach, this is their only sale of the year.

2019 Northwest Sportsmen’s And Boat Show Schedule

Get your phone calendar out, Northwest hunters, anglers, fishing guides, jet sled dealers, backcountry outfitters, lodges, and scone merchants, the 2019 sportsmen’s and boat show season is just around the corner.

More than two dozen events will be held everywhere from Medford to Spokane, Seattle to Boise and points beyond in the new year.

SEATTLE BOAT SHOW GOERS PROWL THE AISLES AT THE CENTURYLINK FIELD EVENT CENTER. (SEATTLE BOAT SHOW)

They’re put on by a number of promoters, including the Northwest Marine Trade Association, O’Loughlin Trade Shows and Shuyler Productions, among others, and promise to put the latest and greatest, show favorites and more in front of eager steelheaders, deer hunters and others.

One of the most interesting new displays might just be “Walleye Alley.”

WALLEYE ARE AN INCREASINGLY POPULAR GAME FISH IN THE NORTHWEST AND WILL BE FEATURED IN A GIANT FISH TANK AT THREE UPCOMING SPORTSMEN’S SHOWS. (ERIC ENGBRETSON, USFWS, VIA FLICKR, CC 2.0)

“We’ll have a large warmwater tank with walleye and a number of pro’s sharing how to catch them,” says O’Loughlin’s Trey Carskadon. “This show feature will be complete with tackle to purchase, maps and areas/locations to fish. We expect this to be a big deal and well-received given some of the challenges facing our regional salmon and steelhead stocks.”

Speaking of challenges with salmon, their Kokanee Tank is on hiatus after some of this year’s fish spawned and the others died, but Carskadon says it should be back for 2020 with a new crop of kokes and a tank better suited to the species’ needs.

He says there will also be a new “Kakak Pavilion” at the Washington Sportsmen’s Show, and — Jason Bauer, you’ve died and gone to heaven — top barbecue experts from around the U.S. competing in a cooking competition.
