Re: Looking for paradise

The western states are all experiencing political pressures that seek to restrict and or end many hound related hunting opportunities. If you were to make a big move out west, it'd be wise to be careful about where you go. In my mind's eye, the "safer" states from anti hunting political pr...

Re: A Legend Passes

As far as the Sugar Creek hounds Del bred in the 1960's and 1970's, I had always heard he ended up selling the kennel name and what dogs he had left to a man in Missouri in the mid/late 70's. I believe a large reason for him getting away from the Sugar Creek hounds, as much as he did like them, was ...

Re: Been a long while..

Cassandra,

I've heard that from a handful of Ca evacuees as to how it's just not the same as what there is for tree game in California compared to the state they moved to. Trade offs, I suppose.

Re: Now is the time to support the NRA

The most blatant effort toward infiltration I see on behalf of anti hunting and trapping groups is to get in with state fish and wildlife agencies. From the bottom up as far as positions go. I have been seeing more "calls to action" by anti groups to find ways to shift the manner state G&a...

Counties would have...

Re: "Safest" Hound Hunting State

Thanks for the input, John. The mentality of some other sportsmen against hound hunting certainly won't bode well if we ever need their support of us, if push comes to shove

"Safest" Hound Hunting State

With the political climate being what it is today regarding hound hunting culture across the country, we all know it is only a matter of time before the anti groups may come after your hound hunting in your state. Even states today that have fairly generous hound hunting laws in the west could come ...

Re: How to get CA to allow Mountain Lion hunts?

SASS, You're right. Emotion over logic, reason, science, sound wildlife management and rationale is what governs wildlife policies in CA. What has some worried is that whoever is funding the study, could have bearing on what DFW is "supposed" to conclude in the study. And with that, the ne...

Re: How to get CA to allow Mountain Lion hunts?

Some of you California guys may be aware that CA DFW is in the middle of conducting a statewide lion study to gain the first accurate population estimate since the guesstimate of the late 70's/early 80's. As well as an idea of how lions are using the landscape in modern Ca with habitat fragmentation...

Re: Puppy training

David, Very appreciative of the in depth, detailed response touching on some things that aren't the most intuitive to consider. Those questions were hypotheticals more or less, because I've dealt with those scenarios in the past, like I'm sure many have. Your input touched on the deeper level of rel...

Re: Puppy training

But if it was me, I would begin by catching him up and putting him in jail every time he shows up at the truck while others are working. He definately would not be allowed to join them on the jump or at the tree!! This would be rewarding/reinforcing his lazy behavior. Think about it; wouldn’t you a...

Re: Puppy training

If your dog is coming out on the backtrack, and you are coming in on the track, with the help of the Garmin it would be nothing to scold him (depending on his temperament and personality); turn him around and send him back down the track with encouragement. A few times of this, and tone/electricity...

Re: Dog adjusting to new owner

Some food for thought....I've got two of my hounds out of state with an outfitter being hunted while I am busy working a seasonal job. I took them down there in January after I had been hunting them the first part of the season. Of the two, one adjusted and started going to work with this man's pack...
