Re: Depredation work

If you are trying to run a business, it’s like everything else, set down and figure the complete overhead cost then add about a 10% for surprises that you will have from time to time. Equipment wears out. Then add your profit. That’s the only way to make a living in any kind of business. Don’t be af...

Re: Dogs climes tree can u stop it

Dog disipline usually will ruin a hunt for me quicker than anything. I can only remember one dog I had like that and I gave her away. You can usually tell what you have to work with if you start in the back yard sitting on the tailgate and let the dog figure out the connection between you,him and th...

Re: Dogs climes tree can u stop it

I wouldn’t do anything till I walked to the tree and he is up. Do what you would do in the back yard to get him to come. David ,I’ve corrected the wrong dog by mistake a lot of times, young or old I can’t see any negative affect. As long as they associate e training with discipline I see no problem ...

Re: Dogs climes tree can u stop it

Should be able to do it with an E- collar. Had a young dog worked his way into the middle of about 5 acre flooded high line bottom. When he noticed what he had done, he found a stump and sat down for the long haul. I was ready to go home. One bump with the e- collar and he slid off the stump and swa...

Re: Kemp hounds on hogs

223, sounds like your getting a little restless with what you have, be careful with NAME bred dogs. You can waste as much time on them as your own back yard stuff. If you are at a round table discussion with 5 NAME breeders you will find that there is a lot of difference in what they believe a dog s...

Re: Dog thieves

When you are dealing with a person that will steal a dog, he or she is usually lacking in brain power. Some people will do away with your dog because of previous experience with loosing chicken or calves to dogs coming on their place, which I can kinda understand. I have hunted with dog since I was ...

Re: Clone

You can clone try to create a dog or pack of dogs to fit certain jobs, but I truly believe it is 99% the man that is hunting the dogs. The really good dogs that I’ve seen work under certain handlers didn’t do it with other handlers. If you swap dogs with a really good hunter, your dogs catch rate wi...

Re: Genetics?

I think breeding by the moon was more of a making sure the female conceived not how the offspring was going to turn out. My grandad did everything according to the moon phase and for his time he was fairly successful with 40 acres and 2 mules and 2 horses and a few plows. He didn’t have a lot of spa...

Re: Genetics?

Don’t know what kind of terrier you are using but I raised and sold I don’t know how many southern rat terriers for about 7 years. Never line bred a female. I bred male to female for conformation mostly. Never had anyone come back dissatisfied. Most went for yard dogs. A lot went for squirrel dogs a...

Re: Lion Hound Trainer Advice

I’m 78 and hadn’t found any shortcuts yet. Sounds like you are on the right track when you say there is no wasted time on your part. I don’t think you will find anybody that is going to have interest in your dogs as much as you do. Regardless of the pay. Keep on keeping on and good luck. Forget some...

Re: Bobcat Dog by Dave Peightal

Blue dog, in my area ( I know nothing about your area) but I suspect it’s about the same. There is only a couple of people that I know that are what I call successful cat hunters. First thing these people wouldn’t ask for opinion on anything they wanted to do or listen to very much advice. If they w...

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

Taylor, to find out what you are working with from the get go,hunt the pup by himself. Have him handle broke and start him in the woods around 10 months old. If you put him in game that you want to hunt he should strike a track, run the track to a tree and set down and tree all by himself. If he sta...
