I have a family of cat/hound cross that I've been raising for a year or 20+. In years past I have placed most of my emphasis on brains, hunt, bottom, build and track speed. In the last few years though, I have been trying to pay more attention to the hair pulling too. What are the dogs you hunt? Some have a crew of this and that and that's fine if that's what you like. I want to hear about some of the dogs being hunted that are out a particular family or line.

T-dog, what type of hound did you use in your dogs? Do you prefer the 50/50 crosses, 3/4 cur 1/4 hound or vice versa?

I’m hunting Parker and parker cross but I really want to put running hound in my dogs to up track speed to try and push the runners a little harder to getting them to bay a little quicker

I can’t say I have a line of dogs, but I do hunt dogs that are related. I hunt a mother and a 2 sons that go back to a 3/4 cat, 1/4 running walker that was a heck of a strike/find dog with miles of bottom. He didn’t hunt real hard because he was dropped on tracks most of his life. He has thrown quite a few nice pups in the few times he has been bred. I started a brother to the mother that has turned into a top shelf find/bay dog. He casts and hunts like a competition dog and has more bottom than most hunters care for. The other 4, daddy, daughter, & grandsons don’t hunt wide/hard like the uncle but 3 of the 4 consistently find hogs alone or with company. The other grandson has and can find his own but he is pretty much straight catch ( got it from his daddy) so he don’t get to run on the ground much. They are all good track dogs that consistently find hogs. They could be better bay dogs. They don’t give as much mouth on a bay as I would like. The daddy and the uncle don’t handle as well as the mother and the 2 sons. 1 of the sons has more brains than the other 4 combined and is pure pleasure to hunt. He would be the perfect dog if he gave more mouth on a bay. He doesn’t tolerate the heat as well as the others do. They all go back to a dog named Tater (running walker/cat cross) that came out of Vernon Tx. Overall, they are durable, dependable strike/find dogs. I wish they were more bay minded. When they are young, they like to jump a hog and run it for a while. They are loose bay dogs in general. Again, not a line of dogs, but they are a family of dogs.

Mike I used the Lipper bred Walker blood. Some pretty good competion/pleasure hounds. I like them at about 1/4 the best. I bred it in then back out more than once. It's very strong. I ave some that are 1/8 Walker and look just like a cat or curr in a Walker wrapper.

Track speed is HUGE to me. I like to be able to run the air out of one and then have enough salt about them to keep him there once he thinks he's got his air back and the brains to not get dead doing either. Super fine line as far as I'm concerned and even harder to accomplish consistently. Shotgun, at least you know what your looking for or what your expectations are. A bunch of people raising "hog dogs" that don't have the first idea about what they want or expect so how can they raise anything of quality without a goal?

Started with a Mnt cur pit cross gyp,bread that to a walker ,took a gyp from that and bread ber to a cat pit cross. Ended up with dogs that find and catch hogs... have brothers and sisters and plan on going back both directions with them and back together again ,down the road when needed. Had good luck catching hogs so far ,only been wrecked 1 time.

Yes sir T -Dog. I’m about 8 years in on hog doggin. I’m putting my time in as a hunter/trainer/handler before I get into breeding my own.
-
I Coon hunted treeing walker hounds pretty much every weekend from 1982 to 1991. The Lipper dogs have a reputation of being top shelf track dogs. They have stood the test of time and also worked well on big game. He and that line of dogs remain a popular stud selection and topic of conversation on Coon hound forums today.

Yard full of Parker’s for me. Mr. Larry put in a lot of work getting them to where they are today so I am just riding his coat tails. They work for me though!!

I hunt 2 separate families of curr dogs that I have crossed a couple times now...….in another 3-5yrs they more than likely will be completely mixed...…...if I can keep what I have left alive that long..... 1 line is a line of yella stock bred dogs and the other is a line of east texas curr dogs that from what I understand were just bred to be hunting dogs, I don't believe they were ever used or intended to be used on cattle from all the conversations ive had in the past about them. But hell at the rate im going this year I may be on here looking for someone to throw me a dog or two so I can hunt next season lol, its been a rough year. Lost a hell of a 3yr old dog to an hole in the butt of a boar hog and found my #1 dog dead on his chain last month out of the blue. the 3yr old was a 50/50 cross between the two lines and the other was 100% out of the stock dog line...luckily I have a pair of pups out of both of them so I can't complain too much.

I appreciate it amigo. Play with fire long enough and I reckon its bound to happen...……. sure wasn't plannin to have it twice in the same year but it is what it is now...…. Like I said before, I was lucky enough to have a couple pups out of both of them on the ground so I've still got the blood to play with anyhow.

no sir I didn't and I damn sure should have, some of my closest friends work at the vet in sour lake and could have run the test for me but when I found him it was the last thing on my mind and I didn't talk to em until after he was buried...…..at that point I kinda figured dead was dead and it wasn't worth the money and time..... Kinda wish I would have  just so that I knew what it was but too late now.
