Welcome! BMCs are good for hogs and great all around dogs, just depends on what you want. Try to find ones that are used for hunting and not strictly ranch work. Check with adobecreekranch.com (707)928-0397. I don't know where your located in Ca. but their in Kelseyville. Another guy that has them is in Corning and his number is (530)200-2349, can't remember his name. Good luck!

P.s. - If there's any way you can, go hunt with the dogs and see how they act and perform. Unless you personally know the person with the dogs always go into it with a lot of skepticism. What one person likes in a dog many others won't. Never completely trust someone dealing dogs.

I don't have advice to share with you because I'm essentially at the threshold of the same door, for lack of a better explanation. But I was curious, since you are starting out and you have a breed in mind, what do you ultimately picture for yourself to be an ideal starting point when you are ready to hunt?

I ask because the environment I'd have to present to a pup is saturated with bear. There's no real need to go looking for them because they're not that hard to find. In my mind it's one thing for folks to take their dogs to a place or area to work with them but the place where I spend my free time seems like a bit of a overwhelming starting place if you (I mean me) don't know what you are doing - and I really don't.

That's why I was wondering what you envisioned for yourself down the road. Whenever I start out I like to find some good people interested in talking dogs and the work I am interested in doing with them, without much concern of what's in it for them except for maybe making a friend along the way. A lot of those people I started out with, no matter the venue, ended up becoming lifelong friends.

I wish you the best of luck.

This is for both of you. A dog that will work in high game density isnt always a dog that will catch game in low density or adverse conditions. Most dogs will get something happening if theyre face to face with hogs or bear etc. But if you want to really know you will have good success in poorer conditions look for dogs doing hard work successfully .
