    Thanks Len:D

    I sure wish schools like that would have been around 20 some years ago when I started hunting coyotes. It took me a few years and quite a few educated dogs before I could consider myself a true coyote hunter.

    I like the looks of Tony's dog. I used to use a Border Collie alot of the time. She never would go out after the shot though.??:rolleyes: She stayed pretty close to me. Perhaps in a few more years, if I can semi-retire from the Oilfield, I can maybe get another one............may have to give him a call then.

    Don't beat yourself up too bad about the missed ones, we all do it from time to time unfortunately. I found that the more often I hunt/see coyotes, the less my nerves get to me, and the better I shoot. gun)

    Sounds like he really knows what he`s doing and could teach me alot, but $ 750 for 2 days, plus lodgeing and food while there, not to mention travel from Ohio to NM and back has put it way out of my price range. Just wish I was rich.

    I first heard about Tony and Predator University here on LRH a couple of years ago. He was advertising coyote dogs for sale. I have yet to hunt with Tony, but I did purchase a pup from one of his litters in late September of 2011.

    Tony is a great guy and he spent some time with me while I was out there in NM picking up my pup. "Remmy" is now 9+ months old and has turned out to be everything I expected, and more. This dog loves everyone and has a very even temperment. He is a constant shadow and loves to go hunting with me. So far, he has shown tremendous grit in facing down cows (his mother comes from a herding breed). He listens well and was very easy to train.

    While I can't comment on Tony's hunting operation yet, I can highly recommend his dogs. Remmy will be returning hometo Tony in late March to get a couple months of coyote training. I have high hopes for Remmy and I am very appreciative of the service and skills that Tony provides. If any of you are thinking about a hunting dog, you need to take a serious look at what Tony has for sale.

    Great article and nice to see another approach and in a different region. I hunted with DORN Coyote dogs with Craig O'Gorman of Broadus MT in the 70's with great results and then with a few other buddies in MT and Idaho. I haven't seen or done that in many years, but it is sure fun! Nice calls on his website also. I would like to get one of the horn howlers for wolf and coyote!
