This is the original heavy duty wooden bird box design that has been used by serious dog trainers for years. It features a slide open trap door on one end so that you can flush training birds right in from your quail or chukar pen or pigeon loft, the other end features galvanized wire mesh for ventilation. The sliding trap door is great for liberating quail in the field without leaving human scent behind for the dog to follow, it's also great for releasing groups of homing pigeons learning a new route home from where you want to dog train. The heavy rubber flaps that you reach through to retrieve a bird prevents escapes. Sized right for 20 quail, 15 pigeons, 10 chuckar, or 4 pheasant.

This is a decent product but is missing some key design features.
The assembler missed some staples so I had to add screws when it arrived. There is nothing to hold the top door or slide end closed so I added some turn-buttons. I found out the birds are much calmer when they are in the dark so a way to temporarily close up the vent end would be nice while grabbing birds. The material is also suspect for standing up to years of use in the great outdoors.

One of the best training devices for the money. Easy to pull birds out. Holds a fair amount of birds. Keeps the car clean. We use this almost every day.
