Any of yall run trackin collars on yer dogs? I need a new system and was curious what yall run
It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.

The Garmins are great O0 O0 O0 in my opinion if you can afford one they are the only way to go because you can see exactly what your dog is doing and where it has been my buddy and i run one on our curs and you can tell which ones are doing the work and which ones are just along for the ride

Astro with D C 30 collar is the way to go for squirrel dogs .  I don't know if it would be quite as good for deep hunting hounds .
If ya can't run with the BIG dawgs........ just stay on the porch !  O0

If you ain't bought one yet, I'd recommend any of the systems that Wildlife makes. I've got the TRX-3 and I have nothing but good to say about it. With the Wildlife collars, I've been able to pick my dogs up a little over a mile and half away, but that is hunting here in East TN hunting nothing but hills and deep hollers.
They are reasonably priced, too. A new 3 dog system with 2 collars should run you somewhere in the range of a couple hundred. But you can always find them cheaper used.
The only truth a houndsman has ever said is when he calls another houndsman a liar.

Go with wildlife or johnson! Although the gps may be a fun toy, where the dog is might be a little more important than where the dog has been. I've never had a problem tracking my hounds with one and never had the need to know where they have been.
