Re: New to coon hunting

You're right. There is no set in stone rule. My experience in southern Ontario is that most coons will tree within a 20 acre piece. However, there are coons (particularly boar coons) that will take the dogs on a heck of a run. Especially in areas where you hunt often without harvesting them. If an o...

Hide Dogs

I'm sure this type of question has been asked before but I need to ask again. I dont want to start any sort of arguement but I'm looking for any information I can get regarding people's opinions on the best hide dogs they've hunted with or know about. I know everybody won't agree but I was hoping to...

Re: generatons for consistant type.

Who's Methusala in this conversation? I was hoping somebody with knowledge of the sort of thing that has been done in England with lurchers and terriers would have some valuable input on the subject. I suppose it is too hard to really grasp the whole point in a question typed on here. I'll go back t...

Re: Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

In most cases I would agree with you. "Running" dogs and "tree" dogs have their reputation for an obvious reason. Hounds generally don't have the speed to catch every coyote they ever chase, no matter the breed. The particular plotts I have do have do have the speed to catch up w...

Re: Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

CkZona, There are actually a number of breeds bred for sight running that are faster than coyotes. Just not scenthounds. That is something I have experience with. There are also exceptions to most rules. I also have experience with that.

Re: Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

I assume that if the male came from a comp. hunter then they must be 'PR'. If so where did they come from? And what percentage of game that they chase would you say they catch?

Re: generatons for consistant type.

That's more along the lines of what I was meaning. Not going as far as having a real breed standard but just a reasonable expectation that a majority of a litter will come out the same as the last litter. Hopefully being the intended result of a good blend of the crosses used.

Re: Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

SWAMPDRIVER, what size are your plotts now. What is the reason for your increased success? Tracking ability, speed, stamina? Are your dogs starting and finishing the race, or do you cycle fresh dogs in periodically?

Re: Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

CkZona, I hope you didnt get the impression that my post meant anything about keeping up to coyotes,or catching them, just that they can do a good job of running them, and that they are not too slow to be used effectively on coyotes the way that some view the the plott breed on the whole.

generatons for consistant type.

For anybody who has crossed breeds for a specific purpose. I dont mean just within the hound breeds, but gone beyond that into hound/pointer/greyhound/stag/terrier/cur or whatever... If you achieved what you wanted, how many generations did it take to start seeing consitancy in the offspring? And di...

Plotts downfalls running coyotes?

For those of you who have experince using plotts to run yotes what do typical shortcomings seem to be. What I hear the most from other people is that they lack the speed. This is not an opinion that I agree with as the plotts I own have more than enough speed and outrun most hounds especially on gro...

Wild berries

Does anybody here use wild berries much for cooking or preserving? Particularly elderberry, as the season is coming up and we have loads around us.
Interested to hear different uses.
Thanks.

Re: gene white\ barry tarelton?

I own a female from gene white. Cant say enough good things about her. Tougher than 2 good dogs put together and brains. My experince with gene is that he is a fantastic guy. My choice is to stay close to his bloodline.

Searching for Kamphouse info

I dont post on here much, but this site sure is growing on me. I have papered plotts right now(white hollow/pocahontas), which is really not a big concern for me however where I am located in Ontario there are not a lot of us hound guys, and selling a litter of papered dogs seems to be easier than n...
