Re: Hunting vehicle advice

Find an old yota under 5k with a good frame and be done. It's the only small truck I'd recommend. Had a 93 ranger, junk, 96 s10 junk, got an 03 yota with limited slip. Gets around great and still kicking at 170k and will probably go another. Had it since like 07 and put in a battery, some brakes, fi...

Re: Nose

Personally, I dont develop many winding type dogs as I dont hunt that way much but over the years I've had a few by chance. Those dogs were not my best cold trailers but more average. it seemed like those dogs were always looking for the shortcut and found it by body scent not necessarily track scen...

Re: Nose

You got a lot of stuff going into your enchilada here but I'll try to give small take. Regardless of conditions or nose, some dogs just know where to look for game period. I'm sure it's a learned behavior but they just sense where to look next and keep at it until it pans out. Most dogs tend to give...

Re: RE: Re: Alfa collar malfunction

, no different than how it’s cheaper today to produce a gallon of milk than it was 30 yrs ago but yet the price increase is over ten fold, throw out all the BS one can scrounge up about a greedy public or price of living increases or whatever, at the end of the day it all goes back to a root and th...

Re: RE: Re: Dogs Loading Up

Nolte, a theory question: do you think labs are more athletic than a speed and drive foxhound?. Well I dont know about all labs but the ones I've had out of more upland type lines were more springy than most hounds I've had if that makes sense. They just could really jump and could load in a truck ...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

Just get a flat bed with boxes on the side so you have to lift every one in. Then you don't have to feel bad for your dog not loading. [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES] Oddly enough my lab will self load himself in the hunting truck but I've never had a hound do it. Launch up about 30 inches into a ...

Re: Looking for Lion hunting advice

Personally I'd bring 3 or 4 hounds (none of which run yotes) and 2 sleds, make sure you've got a landowner chip and then find the game. Lions will be where the game is or at least someplace with game and probably not way up top. Then just hope for snow and don't be afraid to drive to find it in the ...

Re: The worst hunting jam you've been in

My worst jam came on a fall coon hunt where we where it was late and we were going to try one last field. It was my hunting partner who got the worst of it. Running in country we were not familiar with and during that dreaded time when the ponds start to freeze up but the coon are starting to get pr...

Re: Bear leading dogs to porky pine

Well I don't have much proof of bears running the dogs past porkies but I do know I've had less issues in the summer/fall vs other seasons. We just don't seem to get in them much in bear season. Now back when I coon hunted a fair bit it was more common or sometimes in winter hunting. I've seen just ...

Re: Telemetry Collar on a Bobcat?

Have ya ever tried to handle a wild barn cat? Add some lbs and pissier attitude. I just envision the whole handling thing going badly. Plus, don't think its legal to affix a tracking collar to a wild critter unless its part of a legitimate tracking study. Heard of some guys that did just what you're...

Re: Hello from south texas

I'd echo what David said and I've found it's easier to trap a cat than catch one with the dogs. Course sometimes both seem impossible.

Re: Laying out over night

I can't say I've hunted until dark and stayed until the am to get going on a track the next morning. I have parked on a nice cat track at 0 dark 30 and waited until dawn to get going. Many times old Bobbie and his friends had crossed again by the time the sun peaked out. And if I had to say it, most...

Re: Bear gun?

For the vast majority of people, a nice short rifle in a 30 call or better with open sights is best. Although shot number 1 matters most, a rifle allows a much better follow up shot if needed. A pistol is only preferred because it's always on you, other than that I haven't noticed any advantages. I'...

Re: Has it always been this hard?

This has been a long thread but I've got a couple additional thoughts. People starting out always get going with too many dogs and frankly that sets them back. The old saying of you don't need more dogs, just better ones always ring true. Better to focus on one or two to get going vs a truck full. S...

Re: Garmin TT10 Repair No More

I've got a new garmin question for the pros. One of my collars links to satellite and gives me a double or triple blink like it should. Everything looks great until the dog gets 50 yards and then nothing, lost reception. Thought it might be the antenna so I swapped that, still same thing. Thought ma...
