Re: How many dogs

Al, most of the dogs I raise do contribute to finishing the cat and fox races I run. Some get away, especially my local educated foxes I run often and take care of. But on a jumped race my expectation in general is a catch, hole, or tree. All dogs I hunt contribute, if at 3 yrs old I dont miss heari...

Re: How many dogs

Lawdawg, was referring to dogs that over run the track giving mouth regularly, slot of 'fast' dogs dont have nose to hold game. I seen a July sell for big money one time. Had wonderful speed and drive in a deer proof fox hunt, always in front end, hunted with her (belonged to a buddy) quite a bit on...

Re: How many dogs

Muleman, I’d prob be willing to bet more are smelling it that you are believing. And depending the quality of dogs. You watch them run, and you will see who is a me too barker and who is smelling it. Ive always heard daylight and eyesight don’t lie, I don’t sit at the truck at night nd listen, 95% m...

Re: How many dogs

Well I like to hunt to hear a race, and a roaring race at that, I can appreciate a dog running solo, or 2 or 3 doing good, but I'm gonna say I don't wanna hunt anything where less than 8-12 dogs are cast. I'm in it for the hair raising roar, couldnt care less to harvest anything with a gun anymore. ...

Re: Video I happened across

Mule man, that’s because they were pennmarydels not the walkers that most foxhunted. Certainly not potlickers, but not my style of hound. He said a grey fox race lasted 6 hours, no way a daytime grey race lasted 6 hours around the hounds and hounds men I grew up around

Re: Dogs Loading Up

Expectations are diff in diff areas! For you and the men you were introduced to dog hunting by it was normal. I grew up in a dog hunting culture, having packs of dogs at home since birthand dogs loading themselves wasnt a thought at all for me til 20 yrs ago, and for guys who been in dogs longer it ...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

David, I think I got lured off topic from the original post, just in the sake of debate ... my 1st post which was really to question why he must load. I Even offered a solution I use to teach them, which is pulling up on collar and encouraging to jump, this tends to encourage them to learn. I don’t ...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

David while u drove down the road waiting on that dog to decide to load, you made him the decision maker, now he is gonna decide when to get in the truck, he now has a say on when your going home, or when/if you can hunt another spot. You seem committed enough to him loading to not leave your dog th...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

And David when that dog is locked in in a tree with a cat up it he IS giving you a command ‘COME SEE COME HELP I GOT HIM!!’ surely that’s not a command that bugs you to follow Where the red fern grows teaches that you are working in tandem with the dogs, they treed that coon, and he had to cut that ...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

David, I agree I’m the hunter he is the dog. And because you know me you know that I like mine to listen. I like to get a rise out of my dad time to time by saying ‘your daddy didn’t hunt his turkey dog, that dog hunted him’ meaning he was wild and hard headed (which wasn’t the case, but it’s good f...

Re: Dogs Loading Up

1st let me say, I like my dogs to load themselves. More than that I like dogs who aren't afraid of the truck. I've culled dogs for seeing the truck and not coming, I've never culled one for not loading himself. I know people who feed in their trucks, all kinda tricks. I dont do any pre-teaching, hec...

Re: Has it always been this hard?

Mule man, hate to hi jack thread bc original question was about finding a dog not the ins and outs of breeding. I think how goood a dog is has a lot to do with environment too, best bred pup hunted dozen times a year way less likely to be good as same pup hunted dozen times a month. That doesn’t mak...

Re: Has it always been this hard?

Bear chic, I wasn’t gonna comment bc so many people already have, but I decided to join in. To answer the original question, yes, it is hard for an outsider to get hands in good breeding stock. For several reasons, most top breeders would feel only Solid gyps from solid litters should be bred. So th...

Re: Help Identifying - Treeing (or Running?) WC?

Appears to be a foxhound bred dog to me. Glad the dog has a good home now. I would be careful letting her off a leash in the farm because her instinct to pursue game could kick in and she may disappear. I'd be careful letting her off leash until you know her better, I'd hate for you and your family ...
