Does anyone have any experience with a pointer x

I have heard good things about them mostly

They are faster on their feet run heads up and run quite so catch faster

They don't rang out as far as hounds unless they are running something and have better recall and are ease to break off deer and livestock.

Just wanted to see what other have seen with them

Never heard of anyone using a pointer for bear. But your question I suppose brings up more questions. Would you possibly be using your pointer with hounds along also? If not why bother with dogs at all? Wouldn't it be easier to bait the bear?

I'm not a bear hunter but have owned hunting hounds for 43 years. To me, the joy of hunting with hounds is in training and caring for them. Having them around at home is a joy to me as well as the time in the woods. I enjoy the chase far more than I do the kill. Hearing and seeing the hounds do what the were bred,born and trained to do is 85-90% of the joy for me.

I've heard of a few bear hunters over the years who had used airedales in their bear hound packs but never a pointer. Have heard of people crossing coon hounds with bird dogs as well.

I was talking about a pointer being crossed with hound. Heard they make a fast running smarter x that catches faster

Pointer x

Not sure where youíre from but on the Carolina coast a lot of deer hunters run 1/4 or 1/2 pointers crossed with running walkers, They get the job done! I had one as a kid that was pointer/setter cross would flat run a deer to death Donít see why a little crossed in a big game dog wouldnít work.

Intestine I had hear it being done with treeing walkers to get more speed and curs to increase staying power do you know if they add anything to the running hounds

Iíve seen them crossed with treeing walkers, Plotts, English dogs, running walkers, I donít think it matters as long as you put the dog on the woods regularly. Guy I used to bear hunt with had his stuff so crossed up, pups might be any color, but most of them turned out to catch game because he was a hard hunter and a good handler. Think they even had a touch of German Shepard in them somewhere back, top hounds all the way though. Might take a little time but try it, you never know, you might like it!

A friend of mine crosses GSPs with catahoulas and uses them on hogs with good success. He tried crossing the curs with hounds and that cross hunted well but were then open on a track. He prefers tight mouth dogs for hog hunting so the GSPs give him the drive, nose, and athleticism while staying tight mouthed.

Interesting did you ever see them work I have heard a few times people x them with curs from what I understand with the cur x you get more bottom in a chase and some say better tracking

Bird Dog x's

I raised a litter of pups born in Nov. of 2019 that was 1/2 German Shorthaired Pointer, 1/4 Walker, and 1/4 Cur. 9 pups in all. Sold all by the time they were 12 weeks old and over half of them went to bear hunters and the others to squirrel hunters. Only 1 of the one's sold for bear dogs that I know of has already been culled and that was because it never liked riding or being hauled.
Dam is one heck of a coon dog and I have 3 orders of pups from her already if I ever breed her again. She is the 1/2 Walker and 1/2 Cur.
One of the best dogs I ever hunted with as a kid was half hound and half Cocker Spaniel. Open on track and quick as a cat. Took one good dog to beat her to the tree.
