Main reason why they're not used on hogs as often in the US is because of their price tag: $1000-2000 per pup! Hopefully they may be going down in price soon because the same thing happened to the American Bulldog breed..now you can get a dog for $300. You still will have to run bay dogs with the dogos because they do not bark on track or bark when they see hogs. Basically they're running catch dogs. It's better if you try pit bulls. They're cheaper. I would love to own a dogo some day but a lot of American bloodlines of dogos don't hunt..I know of maybe two people who actually hunt with their dogos. Be cautious about buying a dogo. Same thing with american bulldogs. I've had quite a few have temperment problems or simply be too big to be able to work a hog properly or overheat due to the shortness of the muzzles. I had to weed thru a few. Now I don't have any catch dogs.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
