Bobcat dog semen?

Postby johnadamhunter » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:27 pm

I know a lot of guys east of the Mississippi who have nice registered hounds collect and store semen. I hear about a number of dogs that are top notch when it comes to treeing/catching bobcat in the western states. I am curious, do any of you guys, who have really nice bobcat dogs in PNW, collect and store semen? There’s a lot of old blood, mostly crossbred, being hunted today, is any of it being preserved?

Not wanting any. Just curious if anyone was trying to preserve any of the old stock.

Johnadamhunter, Plenty of people on the West coast are collecting. These are gonna be the serious guys for the most part. And there not gonna do much talk about it cause there keeping it for themselves or in a very close group. Not sure why everyone chooses to go to the old stuff. If everything is being done right which I know a lot of people are, the dogs now should be twice the dog compared to the past dogs. Sure this is true for many cases and people. But most the old hound fellas I know might have one or two dogs from the past they could compare to the dogs they are hunting now. But anywho, Yes plenty of people collecting.

I will agree that there are more better bobcats dogs today them in the past 20 to 40 years. When there was a bear and cougar season most people ran everything. Now we have bobcat hunters that are mixing running dog with tree dogs to get bobcat dogs. There is a lot of good blood and bobcat hunters now because thats what we hunt. That said the best bobcat dog that I have every hunted was born in 1978 and I have owned and hunted some goods since but not as good. What I see today in bobcat dogs that concerns me now is loosing the real cold nose dogs that will not trail a back track that know when they are trailing 2 bobcats and go back for the other one after you kill the first treed, that make all the corners of a cat not over running it, that do not over bark on track or bark going to other dogs. I have owned dogs that jump most of the bobcats that they start tree or catch them on the ground most bobcats that they jump. To give an example the Pee Wee and Breeze pair [half sisters] started a bobcat at 7;00 AM trailed it on bare ground through 3 major creek drainages across a major river and jumped it at 9:30 PM and tree after a typical 15 minute race. In most cases a jumped race does not last 5 to 20 minutes with the right dogs. If your dogs make the corners with no looses. Dewey
