Re: Dog bedding

I have used everything from carpet to straw, hay, cedar and pine chips. They ALL seem to get wet and in the winter they ALL freeze after they get wet. I now use nothing and make sure the plastic barrel dog houses have door flaps to keep out the wind. Never had a problem with this in years even when ...

Re: Run to catch

The ticks are lousy here too but the chiggers have eaten me alive. Can't even seem to mow the lawn without getting loaded with them much less what is out in the weeds and woods. I wonder if chiggers bite the dogs as they do me? If so they have to be eaten alive as they are right in where the chigger...

Re: Run to catch

Shady, I guess you gathered that my story was back when the tracking and shocking equipment was a gleam in our eyes. I do remember finally getting my first tracking outfit which was a used quick-track but that big ole blue-tick was gone by then. Never really had any beagles that I needed such equipm...

Re: Run to catch

I will say Shady Grove that I have experienced many of those times like you describe when I coon hunted. Not so awful much with my beagles. I had one big Northern Blue bred Bluettick that was one of those type that when you cut him loose you lifted up his tail and kissed his back side good-bye as he...

Re: Grain fed dogs

I have been involved in this BIG debate about grains in dog food several times and it seems that there may be something to what I have been saying for quite some time. I also believe that very high protein percentages are a culprit to animal health as well. If left to nature as the article states an...

Re: Run to catch

I had a big tree limb fall onto me las summer when cutting fire wood that hit me on my left shoulder. I couldn't lift my arm so had to have an MRI a...

Re: Run to catch

That's a great looking litter of blue tics. Always loved them even when coon hunting just never owned but one blue tic coon hound that was Dave Dean's Northern Blue Hammer line bred. Never did own a blue tic beagle but love those that look like the old time coon hound blues with the black heads.

Re: Indiana Coal Mines-SAD

I'll also add that the mines have taken back a lot of the property even from the Indiana State DNR. Most of the old Minnihaha property is now posted to the hilt. I live right out near it and the property is either under private ownership OR under a lease. That is the other thing here, hunting lease ...

Re: Brinsky's Run-em Over Tank

I've still got probably one of my first coon hunting lights which was a Bill Boatman Dynalite. I can't remember but I think maybe it was bought around 1970 ± a year or two. I believe Bill Boatman actually owned the Dynalite company and made these 6 cell plastic lights with a rim that glowed in the d...

Re: Brinsky's Run-em Over Tank

D.R. that mention of Bill Boatman takes me way back to my heavy coon hunting days.

Re: Run to catch

I have to agree with you two ole fellas as you both are a couple years older than I am. I have hunted my entire life and age hasn't stopped me yet but what has really slowed me down is the changes to the sport. Used to be that a man could hunt about any property that held game and a lot of ole mine ...

Re: Bloodline???

I just love to read anything that is written, by this old Fart, we call Shady Grove !! I know anyone that reads this and jumps, to the conclusion what does this Ga.Red Neck, mean by calling Mr.S.G. an Old fart? Well, you see I have lots more Seniority, than the fellow that has forgotten more about,...

Re: Run to catch

It seems that on a bright sunny day the rabbits go to a hole quicker. If its foggy or cloudy they seem to stay up longer. Newt I 100pct agree on the sun vs cloudy/foggy days, also seems on real windy days they don’t wanna run like they do on a calm day around here. Deer movement seems to follow the...
