Wow, these truck guys are a bunch of sissies.  A little skunk aroma therapy and they are all having fits.  :oops:  

There are things MUCH worse than a skunked dog.  I had one dog that chose to roll in a pile of human $hit that some city slicker had left lying around, and one that rolled in the gutpile of an elk that had been ripening in the September Sun for a week or so. A nice touch was the two maggots on her head when she came back. Fortunately, that's why god made dog crates and electric windows. These things put hair on your chest.

If that is the dividing line, then I am a sissy!  I would much rather my dog be in the bed of the truck.  

I agree about skunk not being the worst.  I carry a de-skunk kit in my truck, but even after a field treatment they still ride home in the crate in the truck bed.

It's a toss up, utility vs. comfort.

One of the low points in hunting was driving home with three skunked dogs in the back of the old Suburban. It seemed like the smell never would come out.

On the other hand, when it's -10 or lower, coming back from a hunt and the weather turns sour, your dogs will be safer and more comfortable in an SUV type. I'd bet the SUV would be safer in a roll over.

I have one of each, both are 4x4,  but the truck gets more good weather use.

My dogs and wife  ride home in the back of the truck but in heated comfort  :<img src=:'>

Does a creaky Volvo station wagon fit into this conversation?

Sure.  I know a guy that bird hunts with a subaru outback station wagon.  Good mileage, four wheel drive, actually makes sense, although it's small.

The most versatile vehicle in the entire world, IMHO, is a 4x4 crew cab pickup.  You make it into anything you want and it can do anything an SUV can do and more.

End of story!

I agree, started getting crew cab 4x4 diesel trucks in 1991 ( 92 model ), had one ever since.  Now on second Chevy, and the 92 was a Ford.  Get a cap for fall and winter, remove shell for spring and summer.  

For me, my ultimate hunting vehicle is a soft top H1 diesel, I LOVED mine, dogs inside if I wanted, or could fit three kennels outside over bed on a bed rack.  Carried 100 gallons of diesel, even if I broke it or got a flat I could drive it out!

Pickup with a cap hands down. Driving a couple dozen stinko mallards for a training day 170 plus miles in cold rainey weather couped up in an SUV can give you sinus problems for life. Getting caught without the usual De-Skunk Stench Kit

in your Cherokee and having to drive 2 dogs that have really gotten hosed down bigtime is a drive you tend to remember vividly too. "She Who Must Be Obeyed" is more than happy to remind you about the residual smell at every opportunity as well. A whole lot easier to deal with in a pickup.

There are things MUCH worse than a skunked dog. Just think about this, you could have a kennel full of GSP's :down:  , well really english pointers with short tails :oops: . Had to do it to get a dog that would hunt. These dogs are so nurotic :down:  they'll  put hair on your chest.

I hear ya dave

I love my Excursion Diesel. I had 4 door pickups but I really prefer this over them. It is a great set-up with gun and storage boxes and plenty of room for the dogs. Plus 20 mpg doesnt hurt either!
