Lets honor our best catch dogs guys. The one's that are gone but not forgotten and the one's that are still getting it done. I'd like to hear from you guy's that are breeding catch dogs and have multiple generations, as well as anyone who got a show stopper from the pound or from Joe down the street. Your best CD's, ANY BREED, that has put rank hogs on the ground. They have a rough job, if you consider them your best, honor them here, Im sure they have earned it. Thanks, Britt

This is Bo Jack, the foundation male of my breeding program. He caught just about every hog we tied through the mid and late 90's until I started hunting his sons in Jan. of 2000. I would kill to have video of some of the stuff he did. It didn't matter how bad he was hurt or what condition he was in, he was still on the ear when you legged the hog. I am four generations down from him with my most recent breedings and the pups are still meeting my standards for a CD. Bo Jack was a 3/4 Hines bred AB. He will always be one of my favorites.

This is a good boar Bo Jack caught for us in Oct. of 98 and one our most memorable hunts. He had no help catching this one since the boar had really cut up our bay dogs before he arrived on the scene. It got real western in that root hole.

Thanks Tom, he was a big dog, 85 to 88 pounds in hunting condition, had wind for days and moved really well for his size. This is one of the last rank hogs he caught at about 9 yrs old. Big 270 pound Bar with no ears and some good cutters, as if that wasn't bad enough, we legged him in chest deep back water when the Neches River was flooded. This pic is from an ad I ran in the Sportsman magazine when I was running hunts. Paid a lot of money for them to spell my name wrong. They thought my name was Bill Garcia LOL. Turned out real nice, other than that minor detail. Wink

Bo Jack held this boar until his 2 sons Hollywood and Jagger got there to give him a hand. It was their 1st woods hunt at 8 mths. Thankfully, that was all the schooling they needed, because ole dad spent a few days at the vet and another month on the side line after this one. We never missed a lick and luckily we didn't loose any teeth. Im smarter now, I wait till they are at least a year before I let them catch bad hogs.

Yes sir, I do still get some that size, The main stud I am using now isn't that big, probably because he is bred pretty tight on Bo Jack, but his pups seem to be around that size and are catching like hammers.

This is me and Hollywood, the first Bojack son I raised. I hunted him hard from 2000 to 2007 and he put some good hogs in the truck for me. This was a good boar he caught on a hunt with Chris Burris (CB Hog Hobbles), his son Wade, and my bud Cullen Prince.

This is Reign.  Used him close to nine years.   A dog never got killed on his watch.  Fast and go all day.

"Captain Morgan"


this was from the Bayed Solid Magazine 2001 issue, their story made the cover, called Whoopin and Hollering, In memory of Danny Hill the boar had over 6 inch cutters if anybody remembers those pics,




You could bet your A$$ when you walked up on a hog it was caught and under control, did not need anything besides him to get the job done.

two good ones he caught one and soon as it went limp he went after the other one and caught them in this water hole, Get him off a og and he knew it belonged to you, dead or alive, he could behave himself, and catch all day long, He was always ready, for whatever you asked of him, he was our loyal companion, #1 catchdog, fishing buddy, watchdog, livestock gurdian, retriever, and puppy trainer, nurse maid for pups and My friend




He has not been duplicated although he is what we set our standard to, and strive to match, no other fills his paw prints, I love his offspring, and they are great dogs, but I have to admit dogs like him aren't easily reproduced.


here is his legacy, to rememberand to honor him, RIP Big Daddy

Yep, he's an 01' model.  I was dropping him off back at the retirement home while you posted that.  He got to go for a ride back to his breeders for a little service work that he seems to have enjoyed.  Hopefully the gyp takes cause that's all that's left of those dogs.

I figured he was... he was just a pup when we first met.

Good luck on the breeding.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the thread so far. This line up has put a dent in the hog population for sure.

INAB's, Reign was a looker, how was he bred?

Ugly Dog, am I mistaken or did ya'll have Captain at the Chase Havard Benefit at Calloways several years ago. I remember meeting Thomas there and I do still have that issue of him and Captain on the cover. You dont see hogs like that one very often.

Kevin, that pair looks like they could run a hog down if they had to. Good lookin dogs.

Chris, I like the way those 2 female are built. Ole LC looked like she was ready for action.

Mike, did you ever get any pups out of Clifford?

The little red dog (Rose) was the best cd i have ever owned by far...She caught alot of hogs and caught smart, she would be on the base of the left ear and standing side by side the hog every time..You could talk to her like a human and she seem to understand every thing you said..I hunted her til she was 6 and got out of hunting for a while and give to a good friend of mine, he hunted her 2 more years (and caught alot of hogs)..He retired at 8 and she got run over at 9....Sure wish i had another one like her......
