Re: Coon Hunting

I am just now getting into the sport of coon hunting and as a 15 year old that plays sport I don’t have time for a job just yet but so I can’t afford a tracking collar for my dog. Does anyone know of any other way I could get my dog out hunting without one? Try to find some one with a tracking syst...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

David, went back and read Dewey/s post again. Still believe it was good post, except the part about the attention deficient kid. No one is perfect. Thought you would have thicker skin. David I have hunted with a couple quarter curs that I really liked. Sorry I offended you so, was not my intention. ...

Re: Suggestions for a hunting/ranch/kids dog

Merry Christmas David. Sure you fired up, good for the heart. Actually I liked Dewey/s post comparing curs to hounds, much better than yours. However, think leopards are now considered hounds. I would bet if one knew the linage behind those great curs you speak of there is a hound in the woodpile. Al

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: Split Race

Lol so if a dog is silent it can't track ? Or it messes up a race ? Or it's not smart ? Or it doesn't start many tracks ? My best year was just shy of a 100 cat and fox combined not counting bear & lion I must of caught all the easy ones that year. Guess I better go cull my pen. Jeff, I have ow...

Re: Split Race

If I trusted the silent dog to not break track & run trash would have did as you did. Yes those silent dogs can make short work of a bob track sometimes, if they will tree. but. not much fun to hunt alone, for I. Al

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. Yes mule man a dog can rig as well in the box as on top. However, the good rig dogs I have owned rig very old tracks from inside, just as well as on top. ...

Re: rig box roof material

I have used all those mentioned in the past. The last wooden box I used asphalt roof adhesive and placed asphalt roofing shingles over the adhesive. I did not lap the shingles. That was about eight years ago, the box has not leaked and the 3-tad shingles provides excellent traction for the dogs feet...

Re: Bear leading dogs to porky pine

Lucky me it has been years since I experienced porky problems. However years ago I had couple dogs that could not resist trying to eat a porky once in a while. My experience very hard to break dogs off porky pine, once they get the habit. Sure don/t mean to be a smart ass, but, have to say think you...

Owned a young dog that had real issues with kennel barking. Breeder told me he had been that way since day one. Dog was looking so good in the woods made it difficult to part with, dog stared falling out of races, couple times found him staggering like he was drunk. Then one day after he had did a v...

Re: Southeast verses north west

Hi Muleman, only takes one hound to catch some bobcat anywhere , if, you have the right hound, a true bobcat hound. However, there are bobcat that are very difficult to catch even with a large pack of cat hounds. Just my opinion. Al

Re: Lion Hound Trainer Advice

Dogs piss on coyote tracks eat cat turds. Run trash 300 yards tops with not the same tone as a cat more deep a growly. Almost always run a snow track backwards to start,and I let them because they always turn around and figure it out. Can tell a lion or cat race by the sound as well as cold trailin...

Re: Bobcat Dog by Dave Peightal

I beleive better bobcat dogs are easily more available today compared to the early eighties when I was first trying to find one. Also, Garmin has changed things dramatically. It is much easier and much less time consuming today to have a dog that can actually catch a bobcat. To have that dog in the ...

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

In my experience most dogs that tree late have made dogs that located their own trees. I do believe some dogs learn to depend on others to tree & never make dependable tree dogs. I often thought those dogs would have made dependable tree dogs if they had been hunted alone. One thing I have notic...

Re: Weyerhaeuser hunting in Oregon

Yes roads make it easier for old folks like I to hunt the hounds. However without good tracking snow I find those roads make it more difficult to catch bobs once they learn to use those roads as an advantage. I sure wish I had an area like you are describing however, here there are large rocks, stee...
