CB/Bryant/Dogs&Cows Hounds

Postby skyhightree1 » Sat Sep 30, 2017 8:04 pm

I wish y'all could be sitting with me right now listening to this chase we turned out 71 dogs on a few deer and there packing together some kinda good . Everyone smiling and having fun making side bets who's dogs will be first behind the deer. Last time to run them till hunting season.

Sky the only dogs you will hear running here are hog dogs. Those days are long gone. Now the woods are full of lease hunters or the weekender that has bought 10 acres and has a deer stand on ever other tree.

71 dogs? I turned 3 loose on a bear last night and thought that might be too many.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Most I ever ran was two at a time Kenny.
Favorite deer dog was pointer hound cross they would smoke one about a quarter mile and come right back for another race.
I wasn't hunting dogs I was hunting deer.

I can't say its wrong because i have never ran deer with dogs but i could see why a landowner would fuss if that bunch of dogs came through a pasture. We have over 12, 000 leased and last night the dogs ran a bear off the lease. It was also out of the state. How would you keep that many dogs where,they are suppose to be.

Yea here a fog running 1/4 mile gets canned quick unless a rabbit beagle. I turned all of my dogs out '27' others turned some or all of there's out. When we do drives 30-40 are usually turned out each drive. When we do deer dog field trials we turn 300-400 out at once. The dogs will often go to another county or pretty far. There isn't really alot of pastures here for them to be in. When we use to run deer beagles they didn't go nearly as far as a walker.

So what's the point of running these dogs a week before the season?

Bow season starts next Saturday we won't run them anymore till 3rd week of November when we can hunt with them. It's just being curtius to everyone who still hunts including myself

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.

Personally I don't have pack dogs every dog of mine will run whatever game it's trained for on its own. When mine run there not chasing each other there competing on who can get to the front closest to the game. It costs just as much to feed a trash dog as a good one trash is cut from my team quick. Here we own and lease alot of land but the hunt clubs we have agreements for going on each other's lands. We turn out alot of dogs so deer don't have time to think and run circles. When they come by you there cutting the wind pretty good the gun better be up.

Wish I could post pictures. We treed one before dark. About 250lb. Then ran another one into an old coal mine hole. The third one we ran several miles and one by one the dogs finally quit. The last dog finally treed on a mine highwall that he couldn't get up over. Crazy where a bear can go. Season opens tomorrow to kill for 3 days but it doesn't interest me to kill them.
SKy, we have 10,000 acres in one block and 1800 in another. Plus some of our members are also members of an adjoining club that adds another 2500 acres. KY state line is our border and many of them go over there and all we can do is go get the dogs. 4000ft elevation on part of it but lots of old mine roads.
