Burr removal?

Stumbled thru a heavy patch of burrs while out in the woods today. My jacket is absolutely covered in them! Anyone have any tips for getting them off besides pulling them one by one?

Re: Burr removal?

Regretfully I know of no other method;however, I am anxiously waiting for a reply from someone who does!

If it weren't for Bird Dogs and Upland Game Birds I would be just another Bored Old Man!

Re: Burr removal?

Try taking a handful of cotton balls. And running them along the burrs. They will attach to the cotton balls. I did this last season and though it took awhile it worked.

Re: Burr removal?

are these the small little sticky looking balls that stick to your clothes? I used a knife to scrape them off. or better safe use a butter knife to scrape them off....



Take a kid hunting as much as you can!

Re: Burr removal?

while on the burr subject.

Cokkleburs are at their worst this year in 1A compared to the last 3 years in my opinion. If you don't know what a cokklebur is or haven't come across them in your hunts, you are lucky. My 2 setters get cokkleburs really bad especially under their "armpits", and if not caught in 3 minutes or less, the cokkleburr rubs their armpit raw in that short of a time. And the dogs "hunt hard", so they just ignore the irritating cokklebur and just keep running. In a quickie 2 hour hunt, it seems like :20 of that is removing cokkleburs off 2 dogs....

I had a Remington brand tummy protector a few years ago that Shelby wore for 2˝ hunts before it was ripped up and useless.(What a waste of money that was).

Is there a good tummy protector on the market? And why don't any tummy protector/skid plates that I see come with short front sleeves that would help protect the front of the dog's front legs and COVER the armpits in the meantime.

Follow the dog. The dog's nose always knows.

Sylmar makes them. Fit must be just right on the dog though.
