Essentially a Surrogator unit equipped with a Predator Proof Funnel, quail raised in the Dog Training Unit can be released and used to train gun dogs! This exclusively designed funnel allows the birds to return to the Dog Training Unit to be used again for training another day! Research has shown some birds were used as many as 90 times! A much more cost effective way for professional dog trainers to work their gun dogs on quail, and an easy way for hunting dog enthusiasts to get their gun dogs on birds more often, resulting in a more experienced bird-dog!



You will purchase 125 day-old quail or 65 day-old pheasant chicks from your local bird supplier. We can provide you a list of bird sources that will ship birds to you overnight delivery if a local source is unavailable. You will provide fifty pounds of top quality game bird starter feed (available at your local feed store or from your bird supplier), a forty-pound propane tank and fifteen gallons of water (water tank provided). The Surrogator will arrive with an instruction manual describing the minor assembly required and how to operate the unit.

The unit requires only minimal weekly maintenance and birds are released at 5 weeks. The fifty pounds of feed, 10 gallons of propane and fifteen gallons of water are typically adequate for one five-week cycle. A cycle can be repeated 3-5 times in a season, depending on the temperatures of your region. Depending on the habitat, we recommend one unit for every quarter section of property.
