Re: Looking for a guy named Claunchy

Wish I could help you Mark. It has been a long time since I ran into him. The last time I saw him he was hangin out with you, Al and a few other famous coastal cat hunters at the OUSDA Convention. I dug up a pic, Claunchy is the one with the cool shades. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f345/MICKEY...

Re: Opinions

I have bought more dogs then I have sold. Every time I sell a dog I get very nervous that the dog will make the buyer happy. I try not to trump up the stories and try not to price the dog to high. I have absolutely no problem selling a dog on a trial, but I don't think I have ever bought a dog with ...

Dogs adapting to a new environment

JC's recent topic reminded me of a dog I bought about ten years ago. It was tried by several hunters and most of them said the dog was worthless. I had hunted with the dog many times and when I got wind it was for sale I bought it up over the phone. That worthless dog caught me hundreds of cats. He ...

Re: Ego, humble modest

I am not sure what Deweys intentions were with this post. I would be willing to leave it alone even though Oneguy828 got pretty brutal. I think everyone is a little quick to call Deweys posts an attempt to boost his own ego, even though some of his "pot stirring" is to promote thought. I t...

Re: Split Bobcat Race ends with a Stolen Tom

I have had my dogs get in with other hunters and had others get in with mine on many occasions. Most guys don't do it on purpose. About ten years ago I had a cat get shot out of a tree and it was completely obvious the guys dumped in on my dogs. Those guys have a reputation for not only stealing cat...

Re: Pup trainers

When you talk with the old timers around here a pup trainer is a lion. The bobcat hunters used lions to get pups going, hence the term "pup trainer".

It wasn't until I started reading on this forum that I saw the term meant older seasoned dog.

Re: When to seperate a pup from the pack ?

So I have a question for George. How does turning older experienced dogs off on a strike each time help teach the up and coming dogs to start the track in the right direction when it's their time? It doesn't, but neither does putting a dog down in the snow and telling them what way to go. I don't h...

Re: When to seperate a pup from the pack ?

Unreal_tk, I have turned out pups before the other dogs, most of the time I ended up with the feeling that I hadn't accomplished much. I try to keep an open mind. In order to take some of the practices people talk about and make them work until you see the results, can be a very long term game. So m...

Re: When to seperate a pup from the pack ?

Unreal_tk, It would take a better houndsmen than me, even with a Garmin, to know if they took a red hot strike backwards. Some guys say they can tell with their experienced dogs and so can I to an extent. Pups/young dogs are always changing the way they act and sound so it would be hard for me to te...

Re: Longest bobcat race?

If you take out all the bad spots cats like to frequent they are very easy to catch. Add in a half mile of blow downs in a nasty creek canyon and it gets tough for any dog to hold pressure, usually giving the cat another head start. The hardest races I have ever had were in the spring following a lo...

Re: When to seperate a pup from the pack ?

Unreal_tk, If you are referring to seeing a cat cross the road then that might be a time to let pups go. I have done that. That doesn't happen very often, and when you do see a cat walk across the road it isn't unusual for the best dogs to have a hard time getting it started. Once they get it starte...

Re: When to seperate a pup from the pack ?

There have been some interesting topics lately that have had me thinking. I get what everyone is saying about turning out pups first to let them spread their wings a little. When hunting in snow I have let pups try tracks before, but where you hunt and the type of hunting will have a big effect on w...
