Hunting Speed?

Postby ands » Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:04 pm

Just curious if anyone ever clocks the speed of a dog during a hunt via basecamp? Open country obviously cover rocks trees etc will slow them way down but i wonder just how fast they run using nose alone?

TRacking speed on mine seems to be about 5 miles an hour. Got to stay up with them though because once its jumped they go much faster and can be 1-2 miles away in under 10 minutes. I hunt in some steep terrain and its hard to keep up with the dogs unless I make guesses and cut across to shorten the distance.

Yes it always seems to average out at around 5mph but sometimes my young bitch hits 23mph almost sure shes not sighted what shes chasing and stays fairly accurate.The garmin is a godsend for cutting corners when all the huntings on foot Tom.

One to two hour Gray fox race where I hunt, thick scrub, averages about 6.5 mph, if we get on a really good one that can run 4-6 hrs average will drop to a little over 5 mph. Have never had a jumped race that averaged less than 5 mph in the 5 years I've had alpha system. Races in fox pens on mostly coyotes running open paths will be about 9 mph.
You have to reset "new hunt" when you turn out though to get correct average speed.

I was thinking more about maximum speeds a hunting dog sometimes reach using nose alone?

Jumped game in Jackpine country my smaller athletic dogs will hit 23-24 miles an hour.
