There once was a lab that dominated the catch competitions in southern Mississippii.  This was before my time, but I did see a picture of a flyer somewhere with his pic on it.

It was a yell. lab & as soon as he caught, he could be called off. He won a lot of the quick catches.

Someone has posted pics of their golden retriever strike dog before. Said it does a jam up job. The under coat should do just as much to keep it cool as it does to keep it warm, shouldn't be an issue as long as its been acclimated to the heat.

If labs find bombs, drugs, and buried bodies then I don't see why they can't find hogs if trained right

I believe there are certain breeds that are better at certain things.  Maybe labs are not overall the best breed for hog hunting, but that doesn't mean that one dog in a breed cannot be good or exceptional at something.  I believe there are some labs out there that may make a great hog dog.  Doesn't mean your dog will or will not make it; you'll just have to try it and see.

Can't say for all labs but the one I've hunted with was 50 yard dog at the most. She did stay some what busy but always could be found in a water hole. She would bay and try to get a little salty till she got bumpedd and that was it she was done for the rest of the day. There sure could be some good ones out there. But at the end of the day they were not bred to be large game dogs or bred to have high prey drive. There a retriever. To many other breeds of dogs to try on.
