Re: rig box roof material

Al, I never have been much of a rigger, I had rather road. I found rigging to be up and down to much for me. I’m hunting 6 dogs now and I think all will rig out of the box. Not sure because I can’t recognize each dogs voice in the box. A rig for me is a box blow up, when I do stop and put down they ...

Re: rig box roof material

A dog can rig out of the box as well as on top. A good one will rig in the box crowed with other dogs and that rig is usually one you can start.

Re: Average Length of Race

I started to understand that I liked to hunt and listen to dogs run things in about 1950, I was about 10 yrs. old at that time. Most all the fox hunts I went to, the talk around the fire was what dog was in the lead. Never heard any talk or any interest who had a catch or kill dog. They wanted a dog...

Re: Average Length of Race

Lawdag, nobody in my area used hunting to thin out predators back in the day. If some was loosin stock of any kind, they used poison. Everybody had a small wooden keg of stricnine, probably about 25#. If they had to poison they usually let all the neighbors know to keep all the dogs shut up for a fe...

Re: Average Length of Race

I’ve coon hunted a good bit in South Louisiana and can’t recall having a ( LONG FAST) coon race. I’ve usually have a long slow coon race or a short fast coon race, long and fast races are usually been something other than a coon. Had a half red tick/ halftreeing walker that had a lot of one hour fas...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

Cordell, this is a description of a coon hunt with two good hounds and a cur dog. Cast all three and the hounds get in the dark and stay there until a good track is found. The cur will leave with them but will be back shortly. When the hounds have the track up and running, the cur will recognize by ...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

From what I understand in your wants, you can find it at the local dog pound. Collie crosses and Shepard crosses make good tree dogs. All cur dog breeds were originally crossed up on something they didn’t start out the way they are now. I really can’t recognize but two breed of cur that have enough ...

Re: Anyone in Oregon

I live about 4 miles south of the Catahoula registration office and they have been a customer for many years. The Catahoula is primarily a herding and yard dog. Some will tree but they are not used for that down here where they are plentiful. Never saw one used for treeing.

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Dan, the only thing I see that might work down here is Lep.- July. Trying to run a cat down and catch him on the ground in The Southeast with anything other than a running walker pack is like trying to stick a round peg in a square hole.

Re: Daytime coon dog wanted

A coon dog will hunt night or day. I’ve hunted late evening till 10-12 midnight and sometimes all night. It makes no difference to the dogs I had. I’ve started at daylight and hunted till mid morning. I treed a lot of squirrels after daylight but that never bothered me. A lot of those coons you can’...

Re: How did you come to hunt the dogs you hunt?

I never did have any hog dogs or try to hog hunt, but I have caught hogs accidentally while hunting coons. I’m am curious as to why people that really like hog hunting don’t use English pointers or pointer crosses. As a kid my daddy was a bird hunter and had good dogs. They ran out and were never pe...

Re: How did you come to hunt the dogs you hunt?

I am not as lucky as some or I don’t know a good dog when I see one or some people think they have good dogs but don’t. The only thing I can saw is I have never had the kind of dogs I want. Am running some pretty good ones now and have in the past but not like I want.

Re: Bear leading dogs to porky pine

I kinda doubt that animals lead dogs to other animal trying to get them confused. My daddy always thought they did but I couldn’t come to believe that. I run a good bit in tha same places and probably run the same animal sometimes and after a while animals learn where the best place is to lose a dog...
