Recommended for use with "started" pups and older dogs. Use three releasers with each dog each training session for maximum results. Instructions and suggestions on use are included.

Thinner metal on the launcher arms loses some power in launching. Still a very reliable product.

The product functions great and it seems to be very durable, but it does not work well with quail it is to large and the birds can escape it might work good for larger game birds I wish I had a scaled down version of this launcher.

This bird launcher does what it's title says, it launches the bird...very well and high. Just realize your training approach. Do you want to flush the bird yourself by stomping/kicking the ground? Get a foot operated launcher. If you want to simulate different flushing scenarios with your dog, get this launcher as it is more versatile due to the cord which allows you to adjust your proximity to the bird for launching.

Only used it a few times so far. Well built for the most part. Needs longer string on the releases, which isn't hard to change out. I replaced mine with 30 foot releases, so I can shoot from further out.

Gets the job done. I've been using these with pigeons to train my 7 month old shorthair with no problems at all (except the time I forgot to unlock it). It has been a great tool and much cheaper than the electronic ones.

The Scott Bird Manual Launcher is easy to load, and it is a bargain when it comes to training your dog. You may think that a remote unit is best, but the Scott Launcher works just a good. The ease of the unit makes it worth the purchase.

Great launcher if you don't have the big bucks for the remote style. I have used it about a dozen times and have had no issues at all. I will be purchasing another one and would recommend to anyone training bird dogs. Gun Dog Supply was quick with shipment and delivery, and the best price I could find on the web.

Good launcher. Just be careful on setting the trigger. Also I leave mine in the field to avoid handling. Looks like sunlight or weather makes short work of the netting and soon starts to deteriorate.

I lost a couple of quail out of the ends of the holder so I put
strips of velcro on each end and it works better. I would not had to do that with bigger birds.

The noise complaint at launch time will disappear if you put a bird in the launcher. The added weight will slow the trap down enough to prevent the popping noise you get when you dry fire the launcher. Air flow for more scent can be achieved by heating a large nail over the stove, or outdoor grill, and poking it it through the material at various locations. The hot nail will seal the material and lessen the chance of fraying.
A zip tie on each arm, front and back of the net, cut off flush, will slow the netting from sliding on the launch arms.

An orange surveyor flag attached to one of the arms, which will fold down flat when the launcher is cocked, will allow you to see the trap at a distance, in heavy grass, and may keep you from mowing over it with the brush hog. Been there a few times.

This is a very basic but well made and reasonably quiet manual bird launcher. The 'pop' on opening is not so jarring that you train the dog to that sound. You fill with a live bird or a dummy, stretch out the trigger string, and can pop the bird out from about 15'. It is reasonably difficult for a dog to get the bird out, but if determined he can still succeed. I have 2, I am considering a 3rd or 4th to reduce my reloading and hiding work when training in the field. Works great if you want an affordable manual launcher.

Used them often for the first 3 years (at least 2-3 times a week with pigeons) Worked very well and would recommend them for anyone starting out or as a tune up for pre season bird hunting. Only minor issues with one of them and that was a locking pin to hold one of the spring arms on.

Great product. I tie a loop at the end of the pull rope and trigger it with my foot from four feet away. Great simulation that way. Very reliable product. Fits Chukar well, but Quail can escape. Fold edges to keep them in.

Solid material doesn't allow the scent as well as I would like.

The locking mechanism allows you to load at your truck and cary several into the field for planting without worring about the launcher popping open.

Definitely worth the money.

Works perfect every time, and for the price you can't beat it. I use this launcher for Quail and they fit inside perfectly. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
