Re: Has it always been this hard?

Or you could breed him, raise the pups and just go bear hunting.

Re: The worst hunting jam you've been in

A buddy and I were fishing in a lake in my 14' Jon boat. A thunder storm came up and the lightning was sharp! I mean it was popping all around us. The hydrilla grass was thick so I was having a hard time trying to get through it with my old 15 hp Johnson. I would have to stop put it in reverse to cl...

Re: The worst hunting jam you've been in

I have had 2 tree stands fail, both were years ago before we all knew we needed safety belts. 1 was a ladder type stand I came across in the woods near home. From all indications it had been there for years and I had never seen it, and I practically lived in those woods. It was a homemade job with l...

Re: Hearing problem

John, an old man I used to fox hunt with had one of the regular galvanized fuel funnels, he had the end reduced down with a piece brazed on to it so it fit in the ear. Also had the piece brazed on at an angle so you could put it up to your ear with the funnel facing slightly to where you are facing....

Re: Barking on chain

I agree with muleman and goose. Barking in the pen at home is my pet peeve also, I will not tolerate it! Train horn, siren, coyotes or other dogs howling will get mine going sometimes though. My pen is 100 yards from my back door, if their barking and I turn the back porch light on they hush mid bar...

Re: Barking on chain

"Half way back to the house and he's going again". That's when you have to be committed to the task at hand! You turn around and go right back out there as many times as it takes.

Re: Dog thieves

I got a stolen dog story a man I used to work with told me. He had a farm in the woods surrounded mostly by paper company property, said he raised 2 beautiful bluetick puppies that he let run loose around the place. Said they got where they were trailing good and running the fool out of deer and fox...

Re: ??? Tips For Keeping Dogs In The Desert ???

Expanded metal blocks a lot more air flow then it seems like it would. My son had an airboat with expanded metal around the side of the prop cage, boat would not plane with two people. Changed to 2x4 panels and boat performance increased dramatically. Would haul butt with two people. So I think 2x4 ...

Re: ??? Tips For Keeping Dogs In The Desert ???

Pegleg mentioned automatic waters, be careful how you rig it up. It's probably a nobrainer for y'all but I had a buddy install some in his kennel one time connected to a garden hose. if the hose is in the sun the water in it gets scalding hot which resulted in the water at the licker was always scal...

Re: Hello

Congratulations on your new found passion! Good looking hounds!
David spared preaching to you so I'm going to...a little.
Keep your priorities straight, God, Family, Job, before the hounds. If you have a compulsive nature like myself and I think David does, it is very hard, at times very very hard.

Re: Dog thieves

Pegleg, I would consult with a attorney. I think it would take a lot of starch out of them if they get a call from the attorney. My buddy's dog was stolen by a woman, he found her with the dog, called the sheriff office, woman told deputy it was her dog, buddy told deputy it was his dog. Deputy said...

Re: Pups that come from a dam that died from retained Placenta

Don't have any advice about buying the pup, but whether you do or not. If your bitch is healthy and you like her I'd breed her. I've raised a lot of pups out of 10 year old bitches. At that age that's the best thing they can do for you, hopefully give you hounds like her to hunt for another decade a...
