I've seen some pics and videos of them hogs on my mates coyote hound site and they seem to be able to do some damage to the dogs quite easily. So truth be told if I seen a boar over here I'd grab the pure greyhounds and pick them up as I'd outrun them . Hope your work picks up anyway as I love reading about game from other countries

Bearinator, if you enjoy hunting with dogs you'll appreciate this.  I posted it a while back but it was one of those golden days and I'll share a pic or two if you havent' seen them.  About three years ago it was right before a holiday and everyone was sortof on idle looking for an excuse to start the holiday early.  A guy spotted a bunch of hogs in a peanut field early that morning and gave a shout to everyone who had dogs and we were able to put together three strings of hounds and a few pitbulls.  We set one string out in the field to push them into the woods where when then set two more strings on opposing flanks to push the hogs into a clearing where we set up an ambush for them.  Its not often that a plan comes together but that day it worked like a charm.

Here was the outcome.



Even had a guest from England and he was thrilled to death to drop one himself.  I didn't shoot the first one but did chase one small one down and caught it by hand.  Little sucker had quite a bite too.

Got two more deer to process today and the fella that got the summer sausage carried it to the church and now I have people wanting to just buy sticks of it from me.  Unfortunately I'm not supposed to do that.

Oh, here is a sting of Walker's that belong to a friend of mine.



Here is one of the pits.  We normally carry a medical bag to stitch or staple them up cause if you get on a big one they can be mean but this dog is gentle as a kitten except when he gets on a hog.  He's not too happy at the moment cause they haven't bayed one yet and he is growing impatient waiting on his signal.

Thanks for putting them pictures up, impressive haul of hogs there

Them walkers and that pit are nice dogs as well, the idiots over here got the american pits banned for using them as weapons, but there is still lines of lurchers over here carrying there blood, 1st cross pit/greys bred to other lurchers. I'm hoping to get over there 1 day so I can get me a coyote kill

We had a red mange epidemic a while back that descimated the coyote population but they have come back strong and we probably have more than we should cause the rabbit population has really gone down.  I enjoy hunting them.  I use a call in combination with a jack n the box.  The call brings them in but they are wary and will flank you to wind you but as soon as they see the jack-box the drop their guard and come running.

Here is one shot as it ran across a field with a deer leg.  He was so proud of the leg he didn't let go of it when he was hit and did a complete summersault over the leg due to his momentum.



This is the largest one ever taken on my farm.  I'm not sure if she was 100% coyote or if she was a coydog.  We never weighed her but I'd guess she went 75 - 80 lbs.



If you ever find yourself near south georgia or north florida just remember you have a place to hunt and with both these pests you needn't any type permit or license.

BB what is a jack- box please
Butterbean

Its similar to the toy but it has s small motor in it that moves a small furry stuffed animal back and too.  You can exchange these from squirrels to rabbits.  I normally use the rabbit then use a distress call and they can't resist it.  Another good visual decoy is the toy weasel found at toy stores. Its got a little ball attached to a string attached o a furry weasel.  The ball has a motor in it and rolls back and too on ground dragging the weasel.  With both you have to be watchful of hawks and owls or they'll take them.

  BUT      perhaps the latter content would have been more appropriately placed in the Hunting section of the forum.

BB thanks for all that we don't have jack-box here sounds great love the photos thanks

Lady I understand your thoughts  


This is just how conversations develop I think and love it.
Butterbean

Again, Lady, I apologize for offending you so.  I was merely answering questions and discussing things Bearinator seemed interested in as it seemed apparent the thread was dead and the board has been quite dull lately so it was a nice change to have more than a few attaboys and emicons posted.  In the future I will take note and try my utmost to keep my replies strictly on topic and as brief as possible.  Fair enough?  Speaking of which, after your post it seems we have gotten even more off topic so I'll end it here cause we can't have that can we?
