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.


Nice we have large blocks we lease as well rarely do dogs go where we can't kill the game. Here you don't need Bear doge there forever walking around the fields I see some every week.

Not to me, that's why it doesn't interest me to kill one.
Sky, do you see lots of crop damage there. Nothing near this lease for them to bother,

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.

Like most game some love it some don't. I like it ok but none of my family eat it much. You do have to get the fat off that is important. Makes a decent stew or good BBQ that's about the only 2 ways I really like it.

I am with you Kenny, I only carry a gun for o'crap situations. Much rather shoot one with a camera. I really enjoy the dogs and the walking thru the mountains most. It is truly mind boggling where they can and do go and how fast when they take a notion. Also never seen one break a bone and seen them fall 80' and land on rock. Sounds like you had a good chase going there.

They are particularly hard on corn. They like to lay or sit in the middle and pull stalks to them then walk a little ways and do it again making VW sized crop circles. I know watermelon growers near the Dismal Swamp have a heck of a time with them too. They like to sample all of them then eat the best.

Most people don't realize how much ground a dog can cover. We run Curr and Catahoula dogs and its not hard to run off of 10,000 acres. We have had dogs go off 80,000 acres. The new tracking systems are amazing when used correctly to see what is going on. They also ruin a lot of good dogs when used incorrectly.

I won't hunt where the neighbors aren't ok with me at least calling them to ask if I can retrieve my dogs.

That is the very reason the dog hunter is viewed so badly, rude behavior.
You should always run the absolute minimum amount of dogs IMO.
Hog hunters have gotten such a bad name because of the hillbilly I can go anywhere attitude.
Had one stop by last week to talk about running on the lease across the road.
He was surprised when I told him most everyone with cows up here considers them a target.

Seen a couple hogs hit on the highway when I was down there. Never seen a live one. But hard to watch for them at 75mph.

I agree that a lot of dog hunters do not respect property lines.

At least that guy came and talked to you CB... most wouldn't.

There are some mean ones around there. It's amazing the tusks they can put on along the coast.
