    SO does anyone here hunt with curs or fiests? I used to have me a nice one but my youngest decided to sneak up behind him and yank his tail getting bit in the face :( (Not a major bite thankfully)

    Anyhow let me here about some of your hounds etc as I am lookin to get back into it.In the meantime I will throw some pics out there for your viewing.

    A few years ago, I went hunting with a friend of a friend who had a cur dog. He told me hunting squirrels with a dog was a great hunt. I must admit, for an old squrrel hunter who gets a lot of squirrels each year, this was quite an experience.
    I'm a still hunter! And if I do say so myself, I have great woodmanship skills as far as being able to sneak up on squirrels to a close range and put a small ball in the noggen of a little critter. Hunting with a dog, was unbelievable. In less than an hour, we bagged five squirrels and saw a couple more. Anyone who has an opportunity to hunt with a dog, do it. You'll never forget it.

    I did this once, and it was fun, but what I really like about huntin' tree rats is slippin' around quietly with my .22 and a couple of cigars.

    Dogs and rabbits, now that's something else!:smile2:

    When I was younger I had a small terrier that was a great squirrel dog. After hunting with one it is a lot different not having one.

    I have a mountain cur that has a world champion background with papers. It is good and started but needs finishing. I got him out of TN. I just dont have time to put him in the woods enough.

    Stephen, I had one of those Original Mountain Curs from Tenn. stock (see pic), and really liked him. I had him started, like you, but took sick and couldn't finish him last year, then he disappeared this summer. I had let him out for exercise and I'm afraid he might have been stolen. Also had a registered miniature dachshund disappear the same way recently. I keep a close watch on the yellow lab and the rat terrier my grandson has left. :sad2:
