Fox vs coyote

Postby Doghunter86 » Sat Dec 11, 2021 9:06 am

Do most hounds know the difference, meaning in a area with both present is it possible to have a straight fox hound?

I don't know. They smell different. Some dogs are bred more for fox. I figured the fight had something to do with it. Yes they can be broke but it takes time.

Absolutely they can be broke to only run one or the other. I don't allow my fox/cat dogs to run yotes, have a few young ones that may run one if something else starts it, but my older dogs leave it like a deer. But if you have alot of coyotes it's only gonna be a few years before you have only a few foxes.

Yes Perk totally agree dogs can be broke from any critter if one is consistent. However, coyote has proven to be the hardest critter to prevent a pack of high strung bobcat dogs from trashing on in the spring when the the yotes are breeding. Interesting you mention when one has lots of yotes there will soon be less fox. Have reached point in life that a good fox population would be very nice & if one never treed that would be even better, as long as I could see the fox to
be very sure what the hounds were chasing. The yotes make for a great sounding race, if they stay in the same zip code. Al

I don’t allow my fox/bobcat dogs to run yotes. Really haven’t had a problem with em wanting to run them even though there are more yotes than fox and cats combined. But I started out years ago now, with a straight dog and trained all the rest from there even though she’s been long dead.
