Hog Dogs

What is the best breed/mix for good dogs for hog hunting? Not really looking for a catch dog as there is alot to risk for them grabbing the hog. I'm thinking of using Plott Hounds but am interested in others opinions.

Yea, I've thought about Catahoulas for running hogs to. I'm still doing research and getting opinions. Will be getting some kind of hounds since they would up the chances of kicking up a hog. Evil!

Catahoulas and Currs are a great choice. They are shorter winded dogs and are not as cold nosed as hounds ( Plotts ). I run almost all Curr and Curr crossed dogs. We hunt about 2-3 times a week. Curr type dogs are dogs that use the wind to smell. Hounds are good but remember they could end up miles upon miles away. Whichever you choose, get a good tracking system so you can track them, will be the best thing you purchase. Get you a good catch dog to go with them so you can turn it in on the bay and be able to get in there and stick it with your knife. A great catch dog is worth its weight in gold.... a good pit or american bull dog or a dogo..... get with me if you like to hear more or see some pics and all.... callcottranches@yahoo.com

Leopard Currs.

If you want the absolute best, $ is no matter hog dog, there is no substitute for the Agrentine Dogo, for nose and catch.

if you are hunting in an area where hog numbers are low you need a hound with some nose to it! curs don't have the nose to take what may be the only track you'll run across if it's a cold one. i hunt plotts with a lot of success on hogs! and currently have some for sale if you are interested
