Re: Cur dogs near va?

There is gentleman on Craigslist that has a 8 month old brindle cur started on squirrel for 400. 3 weeks ago I got a 7 year old gyp from him to squirrel and coon hunt. She's a broke dog. He seems to be a very honest man and at 8 months old you can probably make it whatever you'd like to Sent from my...

Re: Packing in dogs

Yessir not many people around here that follow on foot anymore. I don't understand why many times while going to dogs already on one I've founds sign and went there the next day to jump another. I'm not against anyone's style of hounding but you don't get to see what's IN the woods when all your doi...

Re: General questions

I agree most bears don't cause any issues on average. And as long as your hounds work as a team they'll more than likely be able to keep one off of each other. In our area old sows bang up more than boars. Most time if it's a mean bo bear things get expensive

Re: General questions

That's a broad spectrum there! Some bears will run through a pack like a chainsaw. Some walk and and don't pay much attention to the dogs, and some climb before the dogs ever really "catch" them. But if you're dogs respect um they might get a lil banged up but they should be ok. Sent from ...

Re: Packing in dogs

Well I ain't married lol! But I have made the right decision a few times and a few times I've been so far behind I thought I was in first place lol. But walking is never crowded and sometimes it pays off

Re: Packing in dogs

Also easier for me to keep up with a walking fighter on foot I can get in there with the dogs help keep pups motivated. Keep the young ones cranking. The closer you stay to a walking bear the more pressure they'll put on him. Especially if they know your bringing some relief. If you've ever paid att...

Re: Packing in dogs

Because I'm fortunate enough to have a few family and friends that hunt with me, and after I get a track going I either fall off to a road or follow the dogs until they get close to the road and I'll drop over to it. Someone will pick me up and we'll get ahead of the race again. Bears in my area run...

Re: Packing in dogs

Re: Packing in dogs

Packing for us has worked great on runners in big country. Really ups the odds of treeing. That said most of the time I put the pack dogs on another person's truck because after I walk and jump one I don't go back to my truck just keep following the dogs. Most of the time I hunt all of mine all the ...

Re: Dodge Dakota dog box ideas

Hey man just being nosy. Your username has 540 you from around Bedford? And I'd definitely suggest some way to transport water if you hunt in the warmer months. Nice to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Re: Collar antenna support replacement?

We use electrical tape then slide bicycle inner tube over top of it over time the tube shreds and falls off so the tapes a nice insurance if it tears off during a hunt

Re: Any issue running young "lion" dogs on coon

I don't know anything about lion hunting but I start all of my bear dogs as pups coon hunting but as soon as they either strike or tree first a few times they don't go anymore. I have hunted them to long after that point to where they were broke dogs and wouldn't fool with a bear at all.
