Didn't know you were a bear hunter KT. Did you get him treed? 12,000ac sounds like a lot of land to somebody who hasn't ever bear hunted, but when they don't feel like treeing they will cross that in a hurry. Bear hunting on a couple hundred acres if you can't get on the land around it is a waste of time. We generally hunt 3-7 dogs at a time. More than that dogs are running dogs and not the game and the few good dogs are getting screwed up by the run and barkers. Nothing like seeing/hearing good dogs work.

If you ever want to hunt some different scenery look me up KT would be glad to have you along.


SmokinM, where do you bear hunt? I've been in Telico, TN and we had huge leases down east NC. Sure was a ton of fun...I don't do it any more, just got too expensive and so much travel...but boy, good times!!!

There you go Sky making me wish I was there. I have never heard 71 run a race at the same time,bet that sounds better than a church choir. I always like to hear a good race but I also sure do like to hear them set down and blow the top out of a tree . As you know I am working with a young Mountain Cur dog now for Squirrel and one thing I am missing is they don't have the hound mouth and they don't bark on the trail, but its better no dogs at all

Kenny...what do you run on bear? I was using English, and Walker dogs...but my favorite of all time are the Plotts!!!

Tim

We run Curs, Plotts, walkers, black and tan, crosses, mixed up mutts. Probably only a couple registered dogs in the bunch and those are there because they were suppose to be coon dogs.

I hunt in Nelson VA primarily. Big Plott fan myself still have one old one left, blind and deaf now but my daughter sure loves to snuggle him. Blue ticks, walkers and crosses of the two are pretty popular here also. A few Black and Tans and redbones scattered around. Nothing like a good pack treed!

he seems to be doing pretty good, really is a smart dog but this is the first time I have ever trained one with out and older dog to help guide him along. I think if I had and older dog with him he would be doing even better. It will be much better hunting when the leaves fall so I can see the squirrels in the tree better.

Keep working with him don't give him a break gotta keep pounding into him what you want him to do. The worst you can do for a dog is let him sit idle and not work.
