Ive had hounds for years. Just last year i sold all but my female and just made her my house dog. I almost completely quit trapping when i was running hounds. I gave the hound hunting all my time energy and money. 350 mile nights looking for tracks and doing it for 2 months straight and then 3 days a week after that was all i could handle. Then just couldnt wait till it warmed up for coonhunting. Id sure like to see them add a general topic and a hound topic place where we could tell our lies and show our pictures ect. dgarrett

I still have a couple blueticks that I run coons with but I don't do it near as much as I used to. I have been on a few lion hunts and loved that.

Between the dogs and I, I don't know who is older and more crippled up.
Use to run lions with a good bunch of hounds, they've all passed on now.
This new bunch of dogs have ran a few lions, but somehow they all got old too.
Its hair raising fun, now the good cat country is over run with wolves and the other areas with no wolves is totally over run with other hound guys. First snow of the season its like take a number and wait to get up or down any roads to find a track. Actually sickening.

My passion is hunting bobcats with hounds. Here is a picture of one that we got last year that weighed 39 pounds.

Only got to take my pup out twice this season first time out we tracked for 3.5 miles and when we came to a plowed road off came the snow shoes and we hoofed it back to the truck, 2 1/2' - 3' of snow,1 1/2 yr. old leashed pup and snow shoes these 56yr. old legs were like rubber. Second time out after 20 min. we jumped a Tom and I unclipped, pup isn't open on trail but after 40 min I heard him in a swamp found him under a big old cedar but no Tom so we started circling this Tom had been run before he went over 4 trees jumped out crossed a beaver dam and high tailed it after about 1/2 hr of tracking and praising up the pup I had to call it quits pup didn't want to but I wasn't about chase him all night, didn't want to quit because he was doing such a great job. I haven't been cat hunting since my late 20s sure has changed used to be you could take your pick of tracks and if you didn't find something fresher you could go back to one of the ones you passed up but no more you find one you better take it if you don't some one else will, in just my 2 times out I ran across 4 other groups of dogs and hunters. I wanted to get out more but my daughter got selected to speed skate for Team USA at the Special Olympics World Games in Boise and I'm her coach so we had to put in some extra ice time. Oh well coyotes are plentiful maybe my pup can run them, at the least he can decoy and maybe even blood track if I can't do my job. Hey Twopipe where you at those are BIG cats, they look like eastern cats they are not spotted up like most of the westerns I've seen, buddy of mine trapped a 38 lb. Tom this season he was worried when his young partner called and said "We got a big cat" first thing he thought was OH OH we got a Lynx but it wasn't most of our cats are 20-25 lb biggest I've seen was 44 lb.

Those cats are from Minnesota. Not all of them are that big and we don't get a nicely spotted one very often. I've only seen two taken here that had real nice spots. We try to run the biggest tracks we can find but I would say the average size cat we take is somewhere between 28-32 pounds. The average last year was 32 pounds.
