Leapordcur1, You a funny guy and still probably a Virgin, it will happen someday. In the meantime keep the lube companies in ...

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

Both have treed plenty where the dogs sat back off a couple trees and sat there wind treeing treed plenty the dogs could smell at the base of a tree and have treed plenty more where the track probably told the story. And probably treed plenty where they seen it go up.

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

If its luck a person is getting a good locate dog then maybe a person should look somewhere else for dogs. A dog can smell a old track 100 yards above and below a road so why wouldn't they be able to smell a hot one sitting in a tree?

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

Oneguy828, No doubt more game more tracks more caught game more trees equals better chances a dog will perform potentially on a faster note. But it seems like some crosses just start treeing later 2 years old. But no matter how much game you tree or how little game you tree it seems the mental switc...

Re: Treed

Well think of how much fun you and your dogs and your young up and coming pup had with that cat, I'm sure you want more days like that. Best just leave it in the tree. Good luck

Re: Treed

I personally don't say a word to the dogs till the Critter is found. If I never find the critter after how ever long I am there for I just call the dogs and walk back. If I do see it I love them up and let them tree then walk away leaving it in the tree. Good luck...

Re: Starting a 13 week old Pup

Not trying to hi jack this thread but David, What are the major benefits to starting a young dog at a year old? I'm genuinely curious and how many people do you know to wait that long and what's there beliefs?

Re: Starting a 13 week old Pup

Start on the real thing, no need to play with a barn cat. Just keep walking tracks out and help it as much as you can when its needed. Obviously more tracks are better but that amount will give yuh a head start. Just have fun. Good luck hope you keep us informed

Re: Az High desert

Rossco, I understand all that it's just when people talk about how them SW dogs are so cold nosed there really not any colder then the next cat dog in the next state and so on.

Re: Az High desert

Idcurs, I said I would assume people could get it done in that country. Never once said or assumed you thought you had the best dogs around, most people with good dogs don't jump on the internet and insult a bunch of guys by saying there stuff is easy and they don't know what's tough. So I doubt I'l...
