Lee brothers

Who was it that had some letters and history on the lees hunts in Mexico. Possibly also someone who traveled south with them.

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...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

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...

Re: Split Race

Im obviously missing something and probably will continue to. There seems to be alot of favor for silent dogs. To define this a silent dog is silent on track only barking treed or bayed. I'm not real open minded on the subject to be honest. But do like to learn when im able. At one time i was sold o...

Re: Split Race

I dont have any silent hounds. But given all the dogs are on the same track i would have just let it play out if in a vehicle. On foot or horseback i would have moved forward which probably would have encouraged the other two to put more effort into that area and likely led them into the right direc...

Re: MULES,HORSES AND HOUNDS

Not really . if you dont have trees or plenty of help. Cutting it up or travois style is about all that works for much distance. A heavy tarp or similar item with a board or limb through one end can be pulled behind a horse or mule a reasonable distance. On warning is work on this some before trying...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

of all the things to debate loading seems minor. Theres also the rule git in or walk. Now some folks might not hunt large enough country to make that much of a threat to a hound but i do and they wont forget it. i will probably be demonized but its happened plenty of times. Each and everything you d...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

Well alot of it is desire. If they recognise the truck as their ride to hunt they will get in. I used to have a 4x4 flatbed that was high and a older bird dog that developed problems getting in after hunting. A 2"×10" piece of lumber made a decent ramp. Now days i use so many different met...

Re: Keeping My old Hound Comfortable this winter

Keep him dry out of wind feed hi fat diet. And keep a eye on him if he is loosing weight or seems uncomfortable adjust things. I prefer wood shavings as they don't mat down like straw. Put a flap in his door and unless he is really advanced in age or poor condition he should do alright

Re: Laying out over night

I have a few times. Mostly on depredation. If a specific animal is targeted. Theres drawbacks. Most times if your trailing that late it means something. And it takes some preperation or a good deal of youth for it not to wear on you in the morning. If the weathers bad i will take the loss most times...

Re: Has it always been this hard?

Every dog is different and every houndsman is different. Which is to say the dogs catching game for one person may not catch much handled by another. Probably the reason finding someone you get along with that catches game and hunting with them til your convinced their way and their dogs are the onl...
