Re: German short hair for fox?

Why not? Theyre really a multi purpose hunting dog. They dont open on track but have good track ability. Will say i havent met any fur+feather dogs that didnt develop a hard mouth on feathered game.

Re: Kidney failure

Kidney failure due to dehydration is pretty hard to accomplish on dogs in shape. Constant exposure to chemicals is more likely. Protein can cause some issues IF the kidneys are already weakened. But ive seen dogs fed meat and dogs fed fish and health wise its pretty impressive. I would look for gene...

Re: What equitation skills are needed for mounted hunters?

If your interest is fox hunting there are more relevant sites with better answers. A fox hunt can be as demanding as you might want in its style or more moderate. I dont know any western states that allow deer hunting with hounds. There are other locations where deer are sometimes pursued in this ma...

Re: About the field.

There are many "points" in the sport. Friendship.exercise. etc. However the main "point" is the common enjoyment of hounds and horses. If your only interest is killing a red fox theres many ways to do that with much less cost and effort. And if hounds arent a interest to you why ...

Re: Lee brothers

Well im sure it is all of interest to myself or others. Primarily exact route and locations they hunted. Any trials or tribulations they had. Also any mention of various diseases or illnesses their hounds may have picked up. And length of trips.

Re: questions/thoughts about fox hunting and foxhounds

There are still some english style fix hunts in the usa. As has one in in the northern part of the state pursues coyotes. Pennsylvania has a couple along with other eastern states. Also a few folks hunt lion or bears off horse back. However that is a bit different.

Re: Tapeworm help!

Dog health care is a wide subject. Even when your only focusing on parasites. Each region has its own trials. And learning to control them is a big issue. Even with modern medicines it can be a struggle. If you travel widely with your hounds this becomes a bigger job. Many parasites cause similar sy...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

"So many men, of many minds. So many hounds, of many kinds" The debate is centuries old so engage in it by all means, just remind each other each person's perspective is equally valuable and limited. The world is large enough that even in the same dog breed you will find individuals and fa...

Yep. But a bit of life should teach everyone There s more to it then what little they've seen. So stop swearing by things which are very likely being done contrary to your beliefs somewhere at this very moment.

Re: Split Race

Walkerdirt. David is correct in considering the dog opening on the same spot a fault. I myself dont consider it a "cold nosed" trait but believe its more closely related to some types of false treeing. Either way the results the same the dogs hampering the hunt. One of two things is likely...

Re: Split Race

David. Its not very high on my list to see good silent dogs somewhere else. I am however always willing to go hunt with someone. To me nomenclature houndsmen use was the bigger point. But as i stated i've have a preference for a hound that opens on track. And AL a tight mouth dog is still open on tr...
