Re: Dogs for Hogs??

The L3 Outdoors , one of the trapper group for Hogs Gone Wild, uses all kinds of breeds and seems to be very effective.

Riddick - is a four year old registered Boarhound.

Wolfgang - is a Irish Wolfhound Scottish Deerhound cross.

Roo - is a Staghound cross.

Harly - is a 10 month old registered Boarhound.

Ammo - is a BullMastiff/Black Mouth Cur cross.

Cutty Sark - is a three year old female Wolfhound/Deerhound.

MacGregor - is a 11 month old Wolfhound/Deerhound.

Glenfiddich - is a 10 month old Wolfhound/Deerhound.

BTW, looks like they name most of them after Scotch.

Re: Dogs for Hogs??

Back when we were lousy with hogs, I use Boarder Collies and McNabs, quick short range dogs to track and bay. Never used a Pit Bull and would never.
Got rid of over 500 hunderd hogs since the mid 1974's with bay dogs, never more than three on a hunt. Usually just one. My two cents worth.
.264 Win. Mag. ; 257 Roberts; .223 Remington and many others.

Re: Dogs for Hogs??

Here's a few extra breeds to google that are similar to the catahoula:

Black mouth cur

Texas blue lacy

Both these breeds tend to be smaller and quicker. Generally used for tracking and baying pigs. They have great-to-good noses, are very fast and nimble, and they can easily move through the thick stuff where pigs like to hide.

youtube.com also has some great videos of these dogs baying pigs in the pen for training and competition.

Find a local guide and see if he has a litter. They have tried and true dogs. The trick is training 'em, armoring 'em up, and then stitching 'em up later!

Full blooded, inbred, or mixed, if a dog isnt trained properly they wont obey. Proper training is what makes a dog listen and do what you ask.
