Maine

Drove to Maine to run/hunt hare for a week with Dennis (RI), Dan (NH) and Brandon (ME). Woke up Sunday morning to some beautiful snow falling on top of approx. 1-2 feet already on the ground, thought I was in a dream. We ate breakfast, loaded up and drove to our first spot but didn't see much for ha...

Re: people you can trust

Several really good pups get sold every year. MOST of the buyers don't put enough time into a pup to give it a chance to be good. Most get dumped in a kennel, pulled out at 6 months and taken to a starting pen, dumped back in the kennel and brought back out the first day of hunting season and it do...

Re: Gone With the Wind

Likemfast it wasn’t so much a challenge, point is talk is cheap. Don’t take that wrong but sometimes guys get caught up in what’s not true or maybe just exaggerated. There really is no fast dog that runs check free. There is no slow dog that runs check free neither. Just because they don't shut up,...

Re: Gone With the Wind

Yes, sadly Budd is out of hounds, he is into training labs now.

I don’t do the facebook thing, I check this site as well as the Hunted Hare and Rabbitdogs daily. HH has very few posts anymore as well but rabbitdogs has several posts per day but mostly geared towards the slow blackcreek hounds.

Re: July pups

Rick, As other have stated, letting the heat out of the box and air circulation are key. If your boxes have hinged lids, I would suggest opening them and placing a steel grate or a framed fence so to speak over the opening to let the heat inside the box escape (heat rises) yet keep the female in. Op...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

No burr, just tired of the rest of the world constantly telling the U.S. how we should run our country. Again, I don't care what the U.K. has for standards, and yes, I know the hounds originally came from there many years ago. Our forefathers earned the right to make our own rules and standards when...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

This issue only pertains to trialing, it has nothing to do with fear, weakness or closed mindedness at all. If the oversized hounds are not allowed in the trials, the breeding of over sized hounds will follow suit. You can attempt to justify anyway you please, but in the end, rules are rules and the...

You’d probably have better luck moving him on rabbitdogs.net.

Re: best run to catch style. (STUD)

Dan and Dana are spot on, steady consistent pressure! One thing I would add is, when you have your own cohesive pack that works as a team makes a huge difference! Back to the original posters question, I breed my own hounds, but did outcross my FCGD Stinepatch Bonnie to Mitch Anderson’s FCGD Pinehil...

Re: Run to catch

We were running hare. We still had snow a month ago, been in the 90's all weekend and week until this morning, high today of 72, 66 tomorrow and 67 on Sunday. Still have field work to do, but I'm looking forward to getting the hounds out this weekend (cottontails) with the cooler temps. I mostly run...

Re: Run to catch

Went up to my cabin for the weekend to grade the lane going in and work on the generator. Took the hounds with and was in the timber by 5:00 AM with a couple friends and their hounds and by 8:00 AM it was getting too hot. The hounds didn't catch any but they pounded for 3 hours and put on 15 miles, ...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to oversized hounds for hunting, just opposed to entering them in trials. I have an oversized male that is a great hunting hound and would probably do well in trials. I've had encouragement from others to enter him in trials but I will not due to his size. With th...
