Re: Raising pups

Ive raised a heap of pups but I've never been able to tell much about which ones were going to be the best or if any of them were even going to work out until I start hunting them. Sometimes the one I like the least as a pup becomes my favorite or my favorite pup winds up a dud.

Re: Alfa collar malfunction

I hunt 6 to 8 dogs, I do have problem of a collar losing satellite signal sometimes, maybe 1 every 10 hunts. Still have communication with collar, just no satellite signal. Map screen will show (?) where signal was lost, maybe only 100 yards away. When I get dog caught up and turn collar off, then b...

Re: Dogs climes tree can u stop it

I remember a lot of guys with hard to catch fox hounds used to run them with a long piece of weed eater string attached to their collar as a check cord. Never heard any say they had a problem with it hanging up in thick brush, don't know if it would hang up in rocky terrain though.

Re: Kidney failure

Mule man, there used to be a stump in my dog yard that held water. I regularly saw dogs drinking that black, tepid, nasty looking stump water with a bathtub full of fresh, clear, cool water 75 feet away.

Re: Maybe a dumb question...

I enjoy feeding mine. In my big pen I have benchs "like dog show benchs" for each dog that I feed them on, I enjoy walking down there and saying, get in your spot, and they all go jump up on their bench. I will not step foot in the pen until they are all in their spot. I have a few deer do...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

When you are hunting 10 to 14 head and you have inadvertently taught them that "load up" and "tapping the tailgate" means just put your front paws on the tailgate, it becomes a problem, when after hunting ,having multiple races and multiple loadings every day it takes 2 weeks for...

Re: Bobcat Dog book on YouTube

Come on David, I loved the U-Tube stuff. Figure out some way all us subscribers could donate enough for u to buy a laptop just for doing the utube thing on. And u really don't need to be outside hunting, exploring Alaska n stuff when u could b inside reading a book to us and doing interviews, talkin...

Re: How did you come to hunt the dogs you hunt?

Lawdawg, I expect Muleman is like most of us, we just want better than what we've got. And old southern tradition and proper etiquette, brag on your friends dogs and point out the flaws in your own.

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.
