Dave Richards, I almost never run my hare hounds in a pack. Never do on snow! I either run solo or a brace 98% of the time. So if there were issues with back tracking or ďjackingĒ a track Iím going to know it quickly.

Bear dogs is probably a different story altogether. Cold trailing a bear to a jump and then being able to put enough pressure on it to make it climb or hold it at bay is likely where the best hounds shine the most. I can imagine that the ehrlichia would effect the hounds ability to sort out a cold track and get the bear jumped.

So itíd also be interesting to know what kind of effect these tick borne diseases are having on the wild canids. Find it hard to believe coyotes, foxes and wolves arenít effected by it as well.

They do have issues with it but it is usually that they aren't hunting hard enough, not enough stamina, getting throwed out of the race.

Deer have ticks all over them all the time and a hound canít keep up with them. !!


People bred up a bunch of sickly sissies and then doping them to make them go donít help none !!



Just saying.

It would be interesting to know what percentage of each of the coon hound breeds have thyroid issues. No doubt TWís will top the list.

Oh my goodness... Tarbaby, are you just saying all people, or just some people are breeding up a bunch of sissies? And what percentage of hunters are doping their dogs or are you saying that all people are doping their dogs to make them go also?

Here is an answer for you... Nobody is breeding up a bunch of sissies and only a very small handful of people are doping their dogs.

Not so sure about that. The winning black dog lines have issues with it as well.

Take any dog that gets hunted hard, especially in the summer, and test it enough and you will eventually come back with a low thyroid.

I bet only 1 out of 1,000 supposed thyroid dogs out there actually need the medicine.

One of mine has been between a .6 and .9 his entire life. He was at that range when he got in at SS, made 13 trees with 11 coons and two dens that week. Never treed for less than 100.

He was at that range at the world hunt when he ran during both late rounds for two hours and never made a tree.

Thyroid levels are more often than not an excuse.
