Need your opinions on whether this would be ok for the dog or not.

If I take him with me out of town to work this will be his schedule:

At work I have a converted horse trailer that is my "office" and I work my 12 hours in it alone. We also have a living trailer that is shared.

I would work 6pm to 6am and he would be in my office/trailer with me probably sleeping since it's his night.
When I get off each morning we would go hunting until about noon so 5 hours or so of running.
Then while I sleep, he would be in his insulated crate outside until I go to work again at 6pm. He can't be in the shared house.

What you think? Too much crate time during the day?

Reason I'm asking is it would basically be 5 hours of hunting and not much else but sleeping the rest of the day/night.

Seems fine to me. He will probably hunt hard and sleep hard.

If the bird numbers are good to great that would add more ammo to take him for me. Poor bird numbers or no birds I would be less motivated

Haha I appreciate it. It's unconventional and gets pretty old but hopefully it all pays off. Graduate in December.

If you have a truck you might want to invest in a fiberglass shell to keep the weather off the crate while pup is sleeping. I am surprised not many people in texas have shells on trucks if your an outdoorsman.

Take him. He'd rather be with you under almost any circumstances.

I would take him. The topper on the truck is a good idea or maybe hit wal mart & get a tent for his kennel to go in for real cold nights. Could even run extension cord and have an electric heater.
