i've got a gyp that throws mostly light brindle pups and i mean a high percentage close to 90%. they are good lookers for sure and usually make good dogs. i sold a light brindle pup to a buddy and it was coming along great on bear and hogs both until it got stolen from the chain. the dog was not 2 years old yet and had been on 8 bear and about 20 hogs.
Hopefully you will get a good male off your next bunch of pup's to breed to your female too
this weekend (12 13 may 06) I tryed my old coon hound's on bear
first track the black & tan went with the plott's the walker layed back till they treed then went to look around 45min run 150 to 200 lbs
2nd track they both went 1hr 30 min track treed under 150 lbs
they were last to the tree but they stayed till i got there
late on the13 ran 3 track 3 hr's no tree all the dog's came back hard rain the creek's ran to the top of there bank's
I will try them one more time with just 2 plott's not 6 maybe then I can tell if there running the pack or the bear
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.
