Went out last week with a new friend of mine named Paul out in the Texas panhandle for an evening hog hunt. We ended up killing 2 good boars. His dogs were phenomenal. I took my young catahoula female out there with me & she really started to turn on when the other dogs bayed the 2nd boar. She joined right in. It was exciting. I don't think I've ever seen a set of dogs, of any type, that had the "handle" that these dogs did. He could literally tell his dogs to do nearly anything at anytime, and they would obey. I guess that's the mark of a real hunter & a man who sure knows his dogs well. Anyway, I'll go ahead & include a picture or two. The first picture: The first boar was bayed at about 7pm & the dogs bayed it at the edge of a 100 ft cliff. It was a bad situation, but worked out well. We had to shoot this one. That's me in the OK State shirt, and my catahoula is the leopard dog to my right. The other bully-looking dog is his younger catch dog. He's an American Bulldog. This boar was somewhere between 180 & 200 lbs. He had some nice cutters. The second picture: This is the second hog we bayed & caught. This one was in fair territory, no cliffs, so we got to use the catch dogs on this one. The little bulldog caught first, on his first unassisted catch. We then turned loose the bigger catchdog, Jasper, to get in and help control the boar. We legged this boar and stuck him. This boar was 170-190 lbs... somewhere in there. It was a lot of fun, and I got to meet a new friend on the hunt. It doesn't get much better than that. I can't wait until Bray (WOOD18) gets to go out there with me and hunt with Paul, behind his dogs. We're learning!!!
