Re: Turning a Track Around

Have deer and fox hunted with hounds my whole life. If one of my deer dogs habitually back tracks, it going to be eating somebody else's feed. I was forced to hog hunt 3-4 times a week for 2 years, the old man I had to go with was same way about hog dogs. Never been much of a problem with fox but it...

Re: Breeding emphasis

There are 6 in my area that hunt fox exclusively with deer proof dogs. There's probably 50 to 100 with running dogs that chase anything. I only know of 5 cat hunters in the entire state, none from my area. But cat hunters are secretive, I happened up on a guy I'd never met before with a truck load o...

Re: Breeding emphasis

Not color blind, Federal, National Forest. It's a messed up deal. We have to have what they call a special use permit and can run fox only, when it's not hunting season in the forest. Fox/Bobcat season is Nov. thru Apr. 15. Our hunting is regulated by the state, but the special use permit has to be ...

Re: Breeding emphasis

Hi Perk, good to see you pop up here.

Re: Breeding emphasis

Lawdawg, I like females, I keep all the females and start em all because I want the best one. Once they get to running I'm going to pick what I want as soon as I think I can tell which ones. Sometimes I mess up but not often. The year olds I have now was a litter of 10, 5 females, 5 males so got rid...

Re: Breeding emphasis

Nolte, i agree and have had parallel experiences also. I may look at it a little differently though, you got one that equaled its parents so it wasn't unsuccessful just not what you hoped it would be, but instead of having 2 super nice dogs, now you have 3, so you improved your pack by making the br...

Re: Breeding emphasis

I do not breed a dam unless I would be happy with pups just like her. I like to breed within family lines but never never breed inferior dogs because they are off ol so and so. You've got to breed the best to the best if you want to maintain or improve what you got. Lawdawg I mostly agree about the ...

Re: How many dogs

I know this is a old thread but I'm trolling around bored. Hunting in the national forest is closed down because of covid! I'm with Perk, I hunt to hear the roar of a pack. I hunt mostly with one buddy we have 10 to 16 or so between us most of the time. But I like to run alone too with my 6 or 8. I ...

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.
