I didn't say your dogs could not get through swamps, I said they would be no faster than mine in the swamps. Your dogs would be hard pressed to outrun him on open flat ground. You started all this mess by implying that if we could not catch hogs in the open, we could not catch them in the woods. It's easy to catch them in the open, if you have fast dogs and most good bred stock dogs are very fast. A wild hogs top speed is around 28 to 30 mph. A young crossbred heifer can run that fast or faster and these dogs blow by them and stop them from running off all the time. You may have good dogs but lots of other people do to. They can catch just as many as you do, in the open or in the brush. We just like dogs that are not one dimensional. We can catch hogs, pen the hogs, pen the cows, hunt other game and they guard the place and livestock from two legged and four legged varmints when they are laying around the house and lots of them can jump over the side of the truck.
A dog has to be going 38 or faster to catch a running pig in open stags top out at around 40-43 if you cur can run that fast put some type of catch dog in that line and use it as a fast catch dog that way if a pig brakes he can just run it down and I am being serious  Embarrassed

I personally have never seen a pig outrun my cur dogs in an open field. The dogs always catch up with them. No, they don't physically catch them but they always catch up with them. I don't think my curs are exceptionally fast as my Stags can definitely outrun them. Maybe the pigs in my area are just slow??

I'll just say hunting in conjuction with bay dogs is not wise and often a recipe for disaster for several reasons.        I personally would not send a dog to such a home where I felt it was gonna be hunted along with bay dogs.     

I've been using Stags and Stag crosses for several years as lead in catch dogs behind my curs. No issues here.

The worst place I've ever hunted was on an island near Matagorda... I don't ever care to go back haha!

We hunt a lot of places like that from Matagorda to Freeport. Some rough terrain for sure.

Like someone else said when you get around 60 degree averages during the day its time to stop hunting out there due to all the snakes.

I run a couple full stags and stag crosses. I use them as straight lead in catch dogs but on the rare occasions that a pig is running across an open field I will send em. Makes for a good show. Lol
5  HOG & DOGS / GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: ? bout fleas on: April 09, 2015, 10:23:46 pm
After spending several hundred dollars every year on sprays and such (bayer, dominion and countless others), I always had fleas of some sort. I kinda kept them in control, somewhat... I went to comfortis 2 years ago. In my opinion you cant go wrong. I spend about $250 bucks a year, I have 14 dogs  (counting puppies) and I promise you that you can't find a flea on any of my dogs. That stuff turns every dog into a flea killing machine!!!

I'm with Charles. I cull dogs like this. Some like em and say they make the best hog dogs. Who knows but I know I don't like having to catch a dog simply because it doesn't want to come to me. I call em coyotes...

I went to all black buckets a few years back... you can go quite a while without scrubbing them.

May have to break down and buy some of these. It's hard to beat these free white ones I get but if it cuts own on the scrubbing it may be well worth it.
9  HOG & DOGS / HOG DOGS / Re: Clean Water Bowls VS Algea Covered or Stagnate Water on: April 01, 2015, 10:50:42 pm
Definitely! I have seen a few debates on FB and a couple on here over the years so I had to test it. Test was very conclusive. Dogs will probably live on stagnant algea infested water but at what cost??? I'm sticking with clean water...
10  HOG & DOGS / HOG DOGS / Re: 3/4 bulldog 1/4 stag pups updated pics on: March 31, 2015, 09:33:15 pm
Looking good. Hard to tell from the pics but what's their height compared to say an average Stag male?
11  HOG & DOGS / HOG DOGS / Clean Water Bowls VS Algea Covered or Stagnate Water on: March 31, 2015, 09:31:33 pm
So… I decided to conduct an experiment after all the debates I’ve read over the past few years regarding clean vs dirty (mainly green algae) water bowls.
A little background… I have 11 grown dogs, a few pups (around 10 months old) and now some 2 month old pups. All my water bowls are 5 gallon white buckets. During these tests I let all my buckets develop a hefty layer of green, sometimes brown layer of slime on the inside of the bucket. Keep in mind that even though a 5 gallon bucket of water would keep each dog for over a week I still emptied each bucket every couple of days and refilled leaving the stinking algae on the sides. Who knows what a difference it would have made with stagnate water on top of the algae.
Both times I tested this gave me the same results with the exception of two dogs (these two catch dogs consumed a lot of water no matter what). During the month I let the algae build up I noticed a tremendous decline in water consumption thus requiring more feed to keep the dogs looking like I want. As soon as I cleaned the buckets water consumption doubled sometimes more. I did this “test” during December and January, again in February and March.
We all know dogs will drink some nasty stuff but when it comes down to everyday life at the house I found it makes a big difference in the health of my dogs. With that being said I think I will continue keeping clean water available.

Both of my rangers will run about 50mph.
13  HOG & DOGS / GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: Polaris Ranger 400vs570vs800 on: March 20, 2015, 08:52:54 pm
I own a 2013 Ranger 500 two seater and a 2015 570 four seater. I have put my little one through pure heck (even crashed it a couple times) since I bought it in 2013. It's never let me down. I use the 570 for hunting now but I am really impressed with every thing about it. Smoothest ride compared to any other sidexside I've been in. As someone posted above the cab noise (due to engine location) is also quieter than any other sidexside I've been in as well. Power, I have a dog box, front rack and with 6 dogs and 6 people in I have had no issues with needing more power. With all the extras on it, it will still flat out leave my smaller 500 in a race. From what I've read the 570 is only 2 horsepower less that the yamaha 700's.
14  HOG & DOGS / GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: Boar Skull on: March 08, 2015, 02:33:34 pm
I throw all my skulls in a bucket and completely submerge it with water. Then let nature take its course. In the summer they will be clean within a month or so. After that I rinse them off, let em dry then apply the two part peroxide from the beauty supply store. Come out looking good and I don't have to mess with skinning or boiling.

Here's the rack I built for mine. Holds 4 cur dogs.

17  HOG & DOGS / HOG DOGS / Re: Small Puppies on: March 03, 2015, 09:53:54 pm
I have three yella dogs that were born here. They are a little over 2 years old now and litter mates. One is about 100 pounds, one is around 60 and the other is about 35 pounds. Both parents are around 50 to 55 pounds. Your guess is as good as mine why the big difference...

I've been using a piggy frigga for about two years now. No complaints

Thanks for the input guys. The one Terry posted is at orthovet.com and they are pretty proud of them especially a custom fit ($595.00). I found a lot cheaper one at medvet.com. I ordered one this evening for a splint to hopefully let it heal well.
C'mon Chad, You know good and well even at 600 bucks, them cowdogs of yours are worth every nickel!  Grin

nah, I like the design on thatn but I ordered one of Ebay for closer to $100. We Will see how it goes.

Maybe. But I still can't afford it. Lol.
It's my ugly bulldog that has the injury
