Re: Some beginner questions from a hunter looking to get into hounds

Welcome to the world of hound hunting, scour this site you will find lots of useful information. The smallest breed of hound is the beagle there may indeed be some good ones out there that can run cats but if that is your hope and desire I would stick with more like the Walker bluetick redbone type ...

Re: where to start in the mule game

a couple of the guys who train mules and go around and conduct those clinics bring extra mules to those clinics and will be more than happy for you to use one of theirs send him an email. I know Ty Evans would be more than happy to help if you're looking for professional training

Re: Training Not Translating to Field

Like what was stated previously drags don't do your dog any good. If you're going to do anything with scent look up Mike Leonard's cat dog training on this forum. Instead of doing a drag you actually Place scent like an actual cat walks no animal actually drags their body on the ground. If you're tr...

Looking for answers

I was bear hunting in Arizona last week and I had four dogs die. these dogs ranged in age from 9 to 2 years. These dogs are used to hunting in 90-plus degree weather and were in decent shape. It was in the mid 50's when this race started. It was not an exceptionally long race considering some of my ...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

If the mule is trained to be hobbled you can go that route however I have seen many mules that can make some good distance with hobbles on. I typically leave my halter on and tie the lead rope to a tree fairly close to where the dogs are. In the country I hunt it is a luxury to be able to get close ...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

I don't know if I fully understand what you're asking I would go easier on the younger dogs versus the older dogs. Once a dog is well trained they will try to please you and will learn what doesn't. No worries about the questions whether we've been doing it our whole life or not you can always learn...

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

Everybody has their own opinion but I like to start young dogs on small game because it's easier to find lots of it and get them lots of experience before you actually take them to the woods. I would not do a lot of cage work I would do live work as that's teaching them the same kinds of things they...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

I just read your question again if they're a hundred yards away they're not going to hear you give the command so you are not going to want to shock them or they will think they're being shocked for chasing whatever they're chasing. you will have to learn to watch your dogs and the instant they star...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

I've never worried about breaking them off of scent because ultimately when I say come they come regardless of what scent is in there knows I've never had an issue with my hounds. you have to judge the situation whether you think the tone would work or the shock. if you jump a bear out of its bed ri...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

One other thing I would not try to lead the dogs on a leash and the mule at the same time if you have to resort to that I would lead one or the other couple hundred yards tie up go back for the other ones if put them together they're likely to get tangled amongst each other potentially trampling you...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

you've got to watch the hounds close if their tail start wagging or they open I holler at them first if they don't respond to the verbal command then they'll get toned and so on. They figure out pretty quick when I say we're done that we're headed for the truck. As far as an older dog I would work o...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

Make sure your dogs have an extremely good handle on them it doesn't matter how hot the track is when you say come that's the final word. I hunt in the saddle all the time and have taken as many as 13 dogs. When I step back in the saddle from a tree and I Whistle they all fall in line behind me. I h...
