Lawdawg, I use them just the same as my hounds. Truck to tree. My male is exceptional, he's as good as any I've had. He has his own style, but he rigs, roads starts, trails and even opens on a jump, bays and trees. He has a lot of range, speed and bottom, very tough and intelligent dog. My females are a little more typical cur, they are shorter range when hunting for a track, they can trail head down, but its gotta be pretty hot, they are silent, very fast and tough, the youngest one doesn't tree as consistent, more like a running dog in a lot of ways.

But they were raised and trained and always hunted just like my hounds, so they don't know any better. I think if you took one trained for anything else and tried to run them on bear, they wouldn't do as good, but they started out the gate on tree game. Bear, Coon and Squirrel (and I let them kill a few coyotes, which is something I don't allow the hounds to do) I think they love all of it equally lol, goofy dogs. I think my male is definitely one of a kind, especially for the breed and I'll probably never have another like him, but that goes for all really good dogs. There's usually never another exactly like them, but I try to recreate them anyway.

That’s really neat Redwood. I know of one other catahoula man that says he likes to start his hog dogs out on bear. He says he thinks it makes them better hog dogs.

Mule Man, yes they are Registered with the NALC. The two older dogs came from breeders here in California, and my youngest one I bred myself out of my older bitch and a NALC male out of Utah...

Lawdawg, I think a dog started on bears has way more of an advantage. With trailing, range, and learning how to be respectful. If you take a dog who's been on hogs its whole life and throw it on a bear on the ground, your going to have a dead dog. They can't treat a bear the way they do a hog, there has to be respect. I put my curs in a baypen once or twice, and they have too much respect for a hog, they wouldn't make pen dogs for sure.

I understand what you mean. I’ve never once been on bear so I couldn’t tell you either way. I’ve seen pictures of some of your hounds and cats, both are nice looking animals.

Thanks fellas! Pretty blessed, I have my two little girls sleeping in my lap right now. The wife and son are still in the hospital. I figure they’ll release her tomorrow or the day after. I’m gonna try to spend the next couple days getting stuff lined out so my girls and I can go hunting for a few days.
I almost have my Max II ready to hunt from. It’s by no means finished, but I’ll be able to take the girls out with me, some.

Those little girls won't know what to do with a little brother. Best wishes and keep everyone healthy!

Thanks guys!
He and the wife are home now. Everyone is adjusting well. The youngest is having a little bit of trouble because she’s used to being able to crawl all over mom and the couch. All is good though!

Youngins are the best but you’re fixing see life differently with that third being in the mix. On top of that he’s your only boy. Probably that middle girl will change more than anyone. I was the oldest of 3. I had 2 younger sisters and I told them all their life that they owed their life to me. I told them that I was the reason mom and dad had 2 more. Naturally they asked why? I told them that they were so proud of the perfection they accomplished the first time that they decided to have another. After the 2nd failed attempt to duplicate the first child they just quit because it was going down hill fast. Then I’d so y’all are welcome and I love you no matter how ashamed mom and dad are. Deep down I think they really love y’all too it’s just a lot to deal with. LMBO that always went over like lead ballon. I really do love my sisters. It makes me feel good to know when they need me they know 100% they can count on me to be there and have their back, just like I know with them. I doubt your kids will be any different. They will fuss and fight and pick with each other but won’t anybody else be able to do it. Life is going to be different than it was when we were growing up. Your parenting will be harder and face different obstacles.

That’s hilarious! I imagine there will probably be lots of that kinda stuff happening in the future. I have tried to make it a point to try not to ignore the girls now that we have a newborn. I let the wife handle him while I take care of the girls.
