1st off where in AR are you located.
There are three top packs of Bobcat Hounds in AR. Will they sell one, probably the day Ole Lucifer has to break his coal shovel out of the Ice!
I stated this once before here on BGH...Bobcat Hounds are hard to find....Good ones even harder....Good ones for sale almost impossible to find.
A Solid Broke strike, trail, jump do it all Hound today would be from $5,000 to $25,000. (yes they bring that much. I know of three that sold for that in the last year or so)
Depending on where in the State you are located you may be able to use more of a Treebred type Hound. Beware on buying Hounds from outside your region as Hounds from way off have to aclimate to your Climate, vegitation, and off Game.
Also your purpose will dictate the type of Hound that you need. Go back through the Bobcat section archives and read the many very good Post there. Along the way you will see my phone #, you might even see that we are in the Glenwood, Ar area.
Very Good Lion Hunters will tell you that you can catch Lions with Bobcat Hounds but not so much Bobcats with Lion Hounds...different Skills needed.
While we have some Hounds that will bark at a Bobcat, on any given day they would be hard pressed to be called "Cat Hounds".
