Newcomer to Hog Dogin
« on: August 10, 2009, 06:26:36 PM »
I just got introduced to hog hunting with dogs last winter. My eldest's daughters boyfriend, Justin has a pack of dogs & invited me to tag along. I thoroughly enjoy watching dogs that know what they are doing work. His find dog, Hank, will start circling working wider & wider until he's gone. If he comes back & sits down, you might as well load up & go elsewhere. When he catches a scent trail he starts bounding in the direction of the scent, when he locks on he is gone.
The 1st time they bayed up, we were about 3/4's of a mile away & off we went running thru the bottom down a narrow trail. Justin in the lead, his brother, Brandon next & I was following him
All of a sudden Justin yells "LOOK OUT", then Bradon sidesteps.
I look up to see that I'm in a deadrun at a #150 Boar thats running straight at me :'(. There was a deadfall next to the trail & I shimmed up it like a cat squirrel - not an easy feat for a 47yr old fat boy. I could hear the hog grunting & rustling right behind me.
Once I heard it run off, I turned to see Brandon laughing his A$# off. He said that was the closest he had ever seen someone come to getting trampled & not end up cut
:knuppel2 I wasn't to very admused at the time :knuppel2

WHAT A RUSH - I've been several times since that trip & can't wait to go again O0 O0

Way to go!! O0 O0 O0

Hog hunting with dogs is a major hoot. Do it once, and chances are you're hooked! :wink: O0
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

That's awesome, tbox!  :shock: O0 You won't forget that hunt!
We have some other serious hog dog folks here that haven't seen your thread yet.
That would really be a hoot, hunting hogs with dogs. We pretty much just chase wild hogs in circles here in SE Iowa without dogs.  :sad:  :roll:
