I work with my dogs before they are old enough to take hunting and I work them one at a time. Once they know what heel means, then I will work them with another dog. When I call them off a tree or a caught hog, they know the hunting is over. Like said above sometimes we will hit another track and if I do not want to run it, I will tell them no and maybe tone some of the harder headed ones.

I don't think you will diminish their desire to hunt by just pulling them off of a trail. It's in their blood and it takes a lot to discourage them from hunting.

Another update : we've been going to anywhere from 4-5 trees/bayups a week here in va and the dogs and mule are really starting to figure this thing out....a canvas tarp works pretty good for wrapping bear up in to throw over the saddle but blood eventually leaks through, a body bag is leak proof but it is tarp material so it is slick so im still trying to find the perfect solution to keep the bear from shifting when in really rough country.... Is there anything else out there or any ideas youall have? Also i really appreciate all youalls info, at this time last year i never dreamed that i would be hunting this style in va...

I just roll them "lions"in a old ground tarp and lash them on if they are leaking. Bear i always bring a pack horse and go that route. In my eager youth i walked more then i wanted . bear are difficult to tie down evenly. In a pinch you can gut them wrap them and cinch real tight under the ribs tie it to the horn and lash the legs to the cinch buckles on opposite sides. But its not a equal or clean load. It wont go anywhere. But paniers work easier. And any big bear is a hassle to load and may excede ideal weight if its a long or steep trip back. Mostly its just hoisting them up and getting them tied down alone is a job.
