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.
When it come to turkey calls some of us have only one or two. Then there are the ones that have and can't go in the turkey woods without at least a dozen or so. Remember that old calls still work. Just take a little time and freshen up your old style calling tactics.There are most likely more than a hundred types of turkey calls out there on the market. Just waiting for you to pull out the green and spend it on them. From Hunter's Specialties, Lynch, and even the famous Drury brothers calls...
