Garmin Astro 430 With T5 COMBO (1-dog GPS System)

By: Tim Carvenough From WI


I really love the peace of mind the Garmin Astro 430 gives me while hunting. I mainly hunt Grouse and Woodcock so we are usually in heavy cover. I have always hunted with a bell and would have the difficult task of finding my dog when she went on point. I have had her 5 yards away and could't find her. With the Astro I always know exactly where she is. The on point notification is awesome. The dog direction and distance screen leads me right to my dog. I know when I am getting close so I can start looking for my dog and also try to look for possible openings for shooting The only draw back I see so far is that the battery system for the hand held could be better. Over all it is easy to use and it is awesome to know where my dog is at all times no matter if she is on the move or on point. Thick cover doesn't seem to be a problem. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to hit the woods with a dog.

Product Rating: 5 out of 5-stars.
