Let the bird do the training!

These Higgins Remote Releasers don't launch the bird they silently release them. Just work your dog into the area and remotely open the releaser by either using a string or an electronic releaser. The lid slowly opens. Won't scare the bird. The bird is free to go if he feels pressured by the dog. A great, natural way to train those gun dogs who tend to creep or crowd the bird. No more dizzied, tired or sleepy birds. Improves your timing too. No need to activate your launcher at just the right time while trying to stand your dog.

With the Higgins Remote Releaser, just get in the area, open the releaser and get your focus back on the dog. Great for stop to flush and steady to flush training.Releaser comes ready to accept any launcher receiver (Dogtra, Innotek, Tri-tronics, DT Systems). If you already have a launcher, just remove the receiver and attach it to the Higgins Remote Releaser.

If ordering the Higgins Remote Releaser with any launcher transmitter/receiver system (Dogtra, DT Systems, Innotek, Tri-tronics) some assembly will be required.

Please allow extra time for delivery.

Very well made product. Although pricey, obviously a quality product so I'm fine with the cost. Higgins included two articles on how to use the launcher as well as clear directions on adding the DT remote electronics. Transferred the DT parts very easily and the remote works fine. This gives me three DTs and one Higgins. I can see where I will use the Higgins more than the DT. I think the DT is good for a stop to flush (timing always tough) and for a back bird flush on a pointing situation. I can see where using both together is better than just one or the other. My recommendation is to have both types for a better training scenario. I do see where you need a launched in the air bird on many situations, but also many others where the Higgins is perfect. I know my dogs recognize the sound of the DT trap and stop on it. In most cases, I think I have a stop to trap and not stop to flush. As always, the greatest problem is when the quail are poor and do not fly or fly well. What is especially nice about the Higgins is you can load it with 4 quail, release them five minutes or so before you work the area, and you know you have birds but they are not trap dependent and have moved around the ground to some extent. I have had trouble with the DT traps as dogs, once they know it is a trap, sometimes crowd it. You then have the problem of springing a bird in the dogs face or moving it on. The DT tends to let the dog get too close to the trap. Even if the dog gets close to the open Higgins and the quail have not flown, the dog will not be startled by a remote release, and the bird will pop if too much pressure by a dog just as wild birds will do.
