Looks good Mike. I like it.

Some of your foundation dogs pics and pedigree would be cool to see.

I've built a few websites before with straight coding. And man is it time consuming.

Thanks.....I like the looks of that brindle dog.

 Good bulldog/catchdogs are getting pretty tough to find around these parts.

Old bulldog from East Texas from Ray M. She was half dogo and Half pit. She is the mother to my bulldog now.


3/4 pit 1/4 dog. Not too big about 60#s.  She has a head full of sense. I haul her with anydog. She walks to a bay with no leash and wont go until told. She breaks easy without a break stick. Once your hands are on the hog she sits back loose without tying. The only time I tie her back is when turning a hog loose. I hope one day to have another like her.

I bred her last heat to a Dogo male. I hope she took but it does not look like it unfornuatly.

You hunt on your mule by yourself? Been looking at hunting off my horse some. But I hunt a bunch just me and the dogs. A rodeo in the woods solo don't seem like a good time.

Any time and all the time!

But the younger the better for growth. But teeth has a lot to do with genetics. I've caught big  barrs with very little teeth and small boars with big teeth.

I've raised wild hogs in my pen from different locations. Some would top out at 175-200# and have 3+++ inch teeth, some would get 300+ pounds with an inch teeth at best all on the same feed.

 He is full grown for sure. Tried to run him off yesterday. Missed a good hog I had bayed about 500 yards from where he has been staying. Head high thicket and couldn't see 5 ft, and I didn't want to send a bulldog until I could see what they where baying! Glad it wasn't him! Lol

It frustrating.....but you really want to see what your young dogs do, just hunt them. No older dogs and 1-2 at a time all the time. The cream will rise to the top quickly.

They will miss hogs, they will get outrun. Each time they get outrun they will learn. They stop and bay 2-3 hogs themselves they lean 10x faster than just following and going to an older dog bayed.

Much easier with 1-2 dogs than 6-8 dogs.

Good luck! It is a long haul.

I hunt a bunch up in N. Fl

Lots of old timers do a lot on fox trials and hunts around here. Lots of July hounds. It is discouraged and illegal to catch or kill the fox.

There are some real true Dogmen.......Its all about the dogs...not the game at the end.

Marty Scelfo of Franklin La went by plottman on this board and others. I believe he passed away a few years back. His son was messing with them some. Not sure if he still does.

Snake break your dogs and you should never have to worry

If you do the math on how much spinosad is in conserve. The price for the larger pills of comfortis comes out cheaper.

For the conserve you also need to give 1cc Per pound to get the recommended efffective dose. They both work. Its the same stuff. its easier for me to give a pill then to give a shotglass of liquid to a dog. In Conserve you also have no idea what the other 80% of "other ingredients" are

I have both here and used both in the last week. Lots of critters showing up and brought fleas with them. Once you treat you shouldnt have to treat again
15  HOG & DOGS / GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: Fleas/Ticks on: April 27, 2020, 07:35:29 pm
Some on here do Conserve SC. I find it watered down too much and find comfortis is easier and more cost effective. But it (spinosad) does not do ticks.

I ordered simparica to see about fleas and ticks but have not tried it yet. We will see how well it works.

Culled a bunch of those. No bueno when cutting and releasing.

No problem when your running a knife threw them though
Just a cranky Old Man I guess.

Same boat LOL Hunted with guys that telling everyone on facebook that you are hunting is more important than the actual hunting. If I am hunting I leave it off at my camp or in the truck, doesnt work anyway. I don't need pictures. I walk in the door at home it goes off. fishing it is off in a bag in the boat. I am not that important!

Back to the topic

I think a building with no vest is the best. But it has to catch the right way. I always vest them now though. They used to make a vest called Razorback there in Texas and they made some of the best in my opinion. I abused them to they fell apart. I think they were a simple kevlar vest. I dont think they are around anymore though. I have used some others and dont really like them. I wont post the name on the negative ones.

Recently I got the defender bikini vest from ugly dog and had them removed the extra sewed in plates. Seems light and real flexible and big legs holes for movement. I really
like it so far and they worked with me in modifying it. Good people to deal with.

I have never run anything thicker than a bay type vest. The curdogs are pretty rough so a bulldog has a pretty easy job around here.
99% of the time I want to throw mine off a bridge!
don't have cell phone

Living life the right way! LOL
