we run hounds and curs. there is anything from redbones to black and tans to walkers,redticks and plotts, and the curs. it is simular to a hog hunt but different in several ways it is an exciteing hunt for sure.
I can't imagine a hog running up (or down) some of the mountains I saw the bears running on! One place where we saw the bear and hound trail(the leaves where completely gone in a 4 foot wide path) was about a 65to75 degree decline. I would not have been able to climb down it, just sit and slide. I was impressed by the bears ability to negotiate those mountains.
actually they like the terrain a lot. they get back in some of the big deep hollows and are nearly impossible to push out of the rough stuff they'll bay up in a laurrel patch that you have to crawl on your belly to get in and kill them.
by the way steve i'm planning on doing a trap and trail article on this past weekend's hog hunt, i'm going to start it when i get my pics back for it.
