Re: Inconspicuous hunting rig ideas?

Horse trailer. Or any suv with a divider or two in the cab. Just pray you don't have any trashy pups it can get ripe after a few skunks. I don't hunt much from a vehicle but here a white truck with a white box works good unless they get close. I have been mistaken for border patrol or Leo often. I d...

Re: Just something I find amusing

I was hunting years ago and it got hot so we took a break next to a dirt tank. My younger brother was flipping little rock's in the water and this old hound got worked up. Now this dog was old a didn't get excited about anything. But pretty quick he's in the water rooting around and blowing bubbles ...

Re: Short Rough Pack Trip

It's true anywhere I've been the last several years. Some of these rangers will fine you for removing brush from trails. And then you hear the complaints about how difficult it is for fire crew's to navigate. I suppose it's just the way things will be until another change comes along. It seems these...

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

I suppose if you have had a really cold natural hound it's rare to replicate it. But at some point you don't need any colder then what you have. Thinking on this I can honestly say there are men who have followed hounds along time that have made the decision to move towards a more medium type nose. ...

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

I hunt with hounds and use kelpies or heelers for cattle. Now my hounds are medium to high drive but not insane. Some of the cowdogs are insanely driven to do whatever your doing and will run track or trail. But they also can't scent everything the hounds can. They get frusterated and shitty about i...

Re: PRICING A HOUND ?

Well maybe someone is willing to but your hound. But the real question is why would you sell it? After the time put into it you actually get more then that out of the dog over the next few years. And no one that's in the sport for money alone is likely to end up with that type of hound in the first ...

Re: PRICING A HOUND ?

I am wondering at this point is a single do it all bobcat dog really worth the work? There's always variables. But I would have to say for anyone not making decent returns on fur or who has money to burn it probably isn't. Maybe I'm reading this whole thing wrong. And granted some areas have better ...

Re: PRICING A HOUND ?

Man took some time off to sell grade AAA hounds and come back to find the candy man being beaten and drug through the mud. I guess it's ok. Just leave the icecream guy alone it's to damn hot to be maiming him.
Anyone got a dog for sale??

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

Our desert bears can travel some impressive distances. They will stick right to food if water's nearby otherwise they travel between the two until the foods gone or they're pushed out. But when it comes to traveling to the next meal they aren't shy about a trip. I've known them to cross the desert f...

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

What you said about pulling your start dog at the first road seems to be a much more common thought process then I would have guessed. But it isn't something I've done and I always wonder what effect it has on the dog? Mine are never pulled off track. At most I might tie them in spot if they're over...

Re: Introducing new pup

Well is it a right week old pup dropped in a kennel of thirty hounds or four month old meeting three various aged dogs? I don't really do much to introduce my own hounds. Pups are born out of the kennels here because I have a single large house in each kennel with 4-6 hounds per kennel. So the pups ...

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

I believe most hunters would benefit from encouraging their hounds to really trail. I've seen a lot of dogs from popular lines that look great on good tracks. But some of these dogs never cold trail. Others get better but are never great and a large number will just quit if all you have to give them...

Re: Cold nose ? Fact or fiction

Most people don't want or need a real great track dog. So the average is what most people are happy with. I don't disagree that most hounds hunt for their handler in the style or range they've been taught. But some hounds are just colder nosed then others. It might be work ethic or ability or both. ...
