Re: Facebook group

My advice is first give up on Facebook. That social media crap is a bunch of nonsense. Second give up on half of what you read on here and take the other half as just good entertainment

Re: Kidney failure

I think you are going way overboard on the ivormec. Unless you cut it with something that is way too much. I can't remember off the top of my head the name of what it's cut with. I personally worm with equimax, just a little over the amount of about a pencil eraser. Or will do straight ivormec, 0.3 ...

Re: About the field.

I would definitely agree with pegleg on this. If killing an animal is your main goal and accomplishment, than hound hunting may not be for you. I'm not knocking a person that just wants to kill an animal. But hunting with hounds, no matter what the desired game is tends to have nothing to do with th...

Re: What Democrats are not doing

I know the irony in what I'm about to say, because I'm putting it on the internet. But people need to stop making judgments about people with opposite political views based off of what they read on the internet or hear on a radio program. Both those platforms pander to the extremest and lead people ...

Re: A Legend Passes

I never did get to meet Del Cameron, and I wish I could have. I have enjoyed reading his book many times over. And am lucky enough to have a dog that is half his blood and half Boone's blood. He is the most favorite dog I have owned for multiple reasons, and is one heck of a hunter thanks to great b...

Re: Nance bred dogs in general

Mike Leonard, is that strain of Millie dogs you are breeding kinda timid acting? I've only had a couple of dogs from the Millie stuff, but the ones I had I definitely couldn't get after very hard at all. But they were very early starters and very natural. Definitely above average hunting dogs. But n...

Re: Dogs age??

The biggest training for you to work on around the house with her is handling. Make sure she comes when you call, loads in the pickup when you tell her to, and leads without dragging you around. Sit, lay down, shake and roll over is for house dogs, hounds don't need to know circus tricks. But that's...

Re: Coon hunting supplies

Oh and a lead may come in handy. But you can make one out of just about anything. One that you can tie your dog back to a tree is best, but you can make any sort of leash work. I've even used my belt a time or two.

Re: Coon hunting supplies

That's the best part about coon hunting when it comes to being young and broke. It doesn't take much to be successful. All you need is a dog and some sort of flashlight. Just get out and hunt and enjoy yourself. The more you hunt the better both you and your pup will get. And don't be afraid to go d...

Re: Keeping My old Hound Comfortable this winter

Another dog would be good too. My dogs are always doubling and tripling up in a dog house in the winter, and it doesn't even get that cold here. I've seen enough pile in one house together to where it makes no sense how they are comfortable, but they seem to enjoy it

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

I personally prefer crossed up stuff, but crossed up stuff that has been closely bred. Living in California it makes sense, but I like the older California big game bred dogs. Most of what I have and hope to have in the future is pretty heavy with Shockley and Matthes blood. But has been crossed out...

Re: Laying out over night

Ya, I can remember quite a few nights before bear hunting here sleeping in the pickup with a fire going waiting on dogs to come out. Honestly I think it's the time that have the most adversity that make the best memories. Although they usually aren't enjoyable at the time

Laying out over night

I have taken quit a few naps in the afternoon enjoying either the warm sun or a cool shade tree before heading back towards the pickup. But how many of you have layed out over night on a track so you can get it up and going again the next morning? I've had some nights of sleeping out because there w...
