Anyone have any pictures or details on their cable run setups? Looking for different options other than kennels. Thanks

I got mine off I defiantly like them but wondering if I should have just done the typical chain set up. they didnt work well in the ice storm

Never gave any thought to that but makes sense after seeing how the power lines fared in all that lol. Definitely something to consider. I'll take a look at those thanks!

This has been topic on here a time or two. I had some cable runs and I loved them. I tried several ways and I think my favorite was with the cable about 3 foot off the ground. I dug a hole about 12” deep and 18” in diameter then centered and drove a piece of drill stem down about 3 more feet in the ground. I filled the 12 x 18 hole with concrete. I did the same on the other end about 35-40 feet away. I put long stemmed i-bolts all the way through both posts and used them to put the desired tension on the  cable. On one end I put the dog house and water bucket right up next to the post so that the dog couldn’t get wrapped around it and on the other end I put a stop on it so they couldn’t get wrapped around that end. I used a heavy duty pulley (no plastic) and a swivel at the pulley and heavy duty snaps. I don’t remember what size exactly the cable was but seems like it was like 3/8 maybe. I used power line cable. It’s twisted really tight which allows the pulley to travel smoother and isn’t going to rust and deteriorate as easy. I used 8-10 foot length of chain which gave them 16-20 foot of side to side room. I spaced the runs so that the dogs on the runs couldn’t get within 3-4 feet of each other. The runs I had low on the ground more or less wore the hardware out faster and they drug up and mounded the dirt to the center, under the cable. The ones I put 6-7 foot high took more chain to give them range and it hurt a Lil bit when you walk under one and the dog slaps you up side the head with the chain or pulley. The three foot high is up enough that the dogs can run under them with ease and you can mow under them easy. You can also step over them. Hope this helps.

Thanks t-dog! Always enjoy reading your posts even if a never put my 2 cents in lol. Yes sir i knew i had seen the topic before somewhere but couldn't find it back. Sounds like you have plenty of experience dealing with these. I always figured you'd want them higher but makes sense that 3 or so feet is about right. This will definitely be helpful when i go to set some up. Have you ever tried putting another cable running to the dog collar?

Thank you both! Lots of useful info here gonna have to give it a try.

I can’t help with the cooking piece... but I’ve got puppies and one of my grown dogs on a raw diet and they’re doing great.

This is what it looks like daily
- 1 chicken quarter
- one cracked egg with the shell crushed and mixed in it
-a few pieces of lard (my grocery store gives it away for free)
- 1 scoop of plain yogurt
- 1 scoop of coconut oil
- a few slices of white bread that are ripped in to small pieces

I will put a touch of water in the mix if I know I have a hard hunt coming up, just to make sure they’re hydrated real good. I will occasionally see grow in some chicken livers, hearts, and gizzards as well. If I skin a hog out I feed all the scrap and the organs as well.

The detailed list really makes it alot simpler to figure out lol. I'm gonna have to give this a try as well and see how it works out for me. Many thanks.

I may be wrong but I don’t think it’s good for them to cook them food just feed them raw chicken maybe add some green peas and other things raw
Yes sir I've fed plenty raw just heard of people cooking their own ration so to speak. Thought it may help with the worms cooking the wild pork, but haven't researched into that.

When the I lived up Noth I would cook a stew in the winter to throw in with the kibble. I would throw in venison and what ever was on sale for meat. Staples were always liver, spinach eggs including the shells. They need the calories and hydration for them cold hunts.
Thanks Northstar. Would you cook it down into a mash?
