elkhound thanks for the offer but i've got a lot of turkey hunting here though the terrain is kinda rough for workin birds. we do have some long races bear hunting and there are those bear who refuse to tree and choose to fight dogs. if you'd like to hunt with us come on up when season opens and we'll throw the hounds on a track.

i use what is called a rig dog, a dog strikes a track from the top of the dog box and it's off to the races from there, if i can't find anything on a road then i hit a trail with the dogs. when hog hunting i will scout ahead of time hopeing to find fresh sign and then come back to the area and free cast the dogs. i'm in jonesborough tn. where are you relatives at?

it's not all that far from me. instead of callin in the hounds when the track was hot the screwed around and let it get away they don't think they killed the right bear now.
