Re: RE: Re: Bobcat Dog by Dave Peightal

Wind storms can make it a paradise/playground for the cats and just the opposite for the canines. It ain't so great for fat guys in wool pants either. Summer time can be worse with all the brush growing up through the downed trees. It's getting better but still some areas are just plain awful. I sw...

Re: Bobcat Dog by Dave Peightal

David, I'd be in for a couple as well. Heck I still got that old map you marked up for me. A wind storm really beat up that country and the wolves moved in as well.

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

Ive got some experience cat hunting, mostly bad. [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES] Not sure what I can add to this thread except it's such an interesting read to the varied experiences across the country. In our unknown snow belt country there is getting to be darn few cat chasers left. Ya never kno...

Re: Trail Cameras

Gritty, With good dogs an alpha or astro is more of an advantage than a trail camera, bar none. You are given the info of where the hunt is headed and the dogs rarely get out of pocket on you. You know where you have to go locate the chase. And even the last place the chase was. It's the same advant...

Re: Trail Cameras

Before anyone casts stones, How many use a GPS tracking unit. Or before that a telemetry unit. Pretty sure that a famous lion hunter once said that the best tool to find a lion was his telephone. Or another of the extra famous ones who helped develop the shocking collar. Point being that we've all m...

Re: Trouble On The Track

Just something to add to what Von is saying. Some dogs like to back track cause they really like to trail but don't really want to catch up to what's at the end of that trail. Seen it a lot with bear. As for tracks fizzling, it sounds like Mike and Von got ya steered in the right direction. It could...

Re: A Quiet Kennel ???

Nicole had two suggestions that should be considered. Water is one of my favorite deterrents. The garden hose is ready if the dogs decide to get yappy. A little spray down and they head for their house. Doesn't work with the lab though he gets all wound up to play in the water. Consistency is the ot...

Re: Boots

Thanks. I thought that might be the model given you are a firefighter. Some of their models look more like boots for the x games than anything hunting related.

Re: alpha 100 problems

Is that 800 with the standard antenna or with a truck antenna. If it's standard then it's not uncommon for that range with tougher terrain. If it's the long-range truck one then something else is going on. Should always get 1 mile plus and most times much further. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using...

Re: 430 or 320?

I'd go 430, the 320 are being phased out for the 430. Keep that 220 to track the dc30s. Eventually garmin won't fix the older stuff like the dc30s or 320 so no sense in keeping them around when having to upgrade or update.

Re: Boots

What model of scarpas have you had good luck with. I have a pair of kenetreks for the last 5 seasons of wi bear hunting. Most boots don't last a year or two when they are wet every day. The stitches just fall part. Been pleased with mine but don't have any experience in the rocks. Sent from my SAMSU...

Re: Flatbed with dogbox

My best advice is to not do it. Once you run a flatbed for strictly hunting you will always want one. You can customize the dog boxes and storage plus allowing a sled or a quad if you sacrifice dog box space. Personally I have a tacoma flat bed but sometime wish it was full size. I lack hauling capa...

Re: Lead dog male or female?

Pertaining to bear in WI, seen lead dogs in both but a higher percentage of the best dogs I've ever seen were male. Just a little more toughness and endurance in general. Cats, even maybe shaded femake. Coon, even maybe female. Yotes, males slightly. Males can get in squabbles n occasion but females...
