A question about hounds started the thread. I own two German Shorthairs, two Labs, a Brittany and the latest addition to the pack is a beagle. I guess by owning a hound I have lost my position as a bird dog man and now am among the unwashed.

I figured that might get some responses. I would love to hunt with hounds if I was in PIG country but coons just dont justify keeping one around here in central missouri. Hunting with anydog beats hunting with no dog.......on second thought scratch that.

Actually German Shorthairs and DKs are excellent trackers and the european DKs are used for just about anything with fur and or feather. Thee most versatile hunting dog

Default Do'H! I missed something here...

In the day or 2 that I neglected my computer to spend time hunting down a
replacement blower motor for my motorhomes furnace & installing it. What
breed is a "gsp"? Brittney Spaniels are great bird hunters as I also learned
when I did some hvac work for a customer in Post Falls @ the time, as he
bred them as a side business for profit. His breeding pair was also talented @
hunting hares...(this was in the mid to late 1990,s) when hares still existed in
the area. After a severe winter in the late 90,s & a population explosion of
coyotes, the hares around here are very rare even though the coyote popu-
lation has dimminished as well. Development around here is also a major factor
imho as this place was relatively unchanged from 1960 to 1990, "but" the
past 20 years...(Holy Schmidt)!

Default Hunting companion?

I hope to post a pic of Jethro in the camo jumpsuit I made for him last year &
2 pics of him are available on facebook wearing it with the "tail concealing"
attachment to hide a "white wagging tail" from would-be careless deer hunt-
ers! (The admins have my permission to post those 2 pics here) If they have
the time for it! Yesterday, I made a great find @ wal-mart of a holloween
bandana for him to replace the camo one (if needed, to warn other hunters)
as his white legs might attract attention. The bandana is orange with a
spider-web pattern that has a slew of black spiders with 2 green eyes!
Jethro seems to know that hunting season is coming, as he has perfected
a "flat-footed" jump over a 30" tall "kiddie-gate" to restrict his access to my
bedroom when I pack "our hunting clothes" for the upcoming event!

I had a great American Water Spaniel. He died of cancer. I really miss him.

He could find or retrieve anything! I have an American foxhound now. There is not much she can't track, run down, and kill herself. Great watch dog.

This is what a Foxhound does after a days hunt.

Default Ahh, Dawgs & fireplaces!

I have a great one of my late beagle, Goober posing in front of the gas f/p I
installed in my home in 1997 entitled "I'll have my brandy now Jeeves"!
After hunting season I will try to post that pic here along with a pic of Jethro
wearing his camo jumpsuit! The Goober pic in front of the fireplace was a
great marketing tool that sold a lot of gas fireplaces!
