I would advise you to get a hound. Walkers, red bones, red ticks, blue ticks, black and tans, beagles and so on. I've had experience with all of these types of hounds and the best I've seen would be walker hounds. But do not get a blood hound. Blood hounds are cold nosed which means they track older trails. Bad for huntin unless you're huntin for people that is. That is why law enforcement use blood hounds. I've went coon huntin with one before, it was my cousin's. The dog just ran, sniffed, and houled the whole night while we followed it.

I advised blood hounds because they work kinda well for pigs and pretty well for deer where its legal to hunt deer w dogs.

That is Lewis, he is a Beagle/Harrier. When we got him the people said he was a Beagle, Vet says he is a Harrier, all I can say is he will hunt anything...........

Catahoula curs make great all around dogs. They'll hunt just about any game (maybe not as good as some specialty breeds), they love children, they're very protective of their families yet are still social. They "speak" which I think is the coolest thing about them, they will grunt, groan, and growl (not in a menacing way at all) to try and communicate with their owners. They generally don't bark all night long, but WILL sound a hellacious alarm if something is wrong.

Looks like a walker and is big enough to be one. Harriers are good dogs as well

Think you could hook a man up? I used to raise them myself, but I haven't had one in my home since I enlisted around ten years ago.my niece has one, and its made me realize just how much I've been missing the breed.
