McGinnis Blue BoJack

I decided to log BoJacks hunts for the rest of training season, and kill season. BoJack is a young hound that has no trouble getting under a coon. He is a tight mouth track dog, a good chop mouth tree dog. He did chew some when I was hunting him this summer. He didn't chew on big trees, but would peel the bark in ash trees and small soft pines. He would never stop barking for more the 10 to 15 seconds. I did work on him some and he was not doing it as much. Since it has cooled of he has almost stopped Chewing completely. He has a good mouth and is a very good tree dog. His biggest fault right know is his hunting speed out of the gate. I am happy to say he is improving, But still has a long ways to go. When I first started hunting him, He would hunt good if you cut him down the edge of a wood line or a hedgerow, or ditch. When you cut him in the timber he would hunt in 50 to 100 yard circles. You cant get on him hard. if you try to put a switch to his butt he will lay down on his belly. I have had good luck with just a stern pointing of the finger and telling him to get his butt out there, and its working pretty good. This is a young hound with a ton of potential. He is bred to reproduce, and I am sure he will. I have only hunted him one time with another dog, and he did hunt much better, and split of by himself with a coon. I will be hunting him solo 95% of the time, if not 100%. At the end of the season I will decide if he stays here or ends up somewhere else. If he doesn't stay its not that he isn't a nice hound. It just means he is not what I am looking for. I will post his pedigree below.

When he got 40 yards from me I turn my light on him and give he a shout to get back out. He did a 360 and headed north at a good pace. at 300 yards he opened twice. He cut west anther 300 yards and hit a tree with a dozen week locates. then peeled west 350 yards give one big locate and rolled over to a hard chop. when I got to him he was treed on a big hemlock. I was able to see the coon. We headed back to the truck that was 825 yards from us. 2nd drop moon was full and it was very bright out. I cut lose BoJack, He went 350 yards to the south then cut 250 yards west. located on a tree 7 or 8 times came down off the tree did a big 100 yard circle and came back to the same tree located twice and rolled over to a steady chop.

BoJack

BoJack is two years old. I am looking forward to putting his 1st hard kill season on him. He has not been hunted hard yet, but the next couple of months he will be in the timber as much as possible. My biggest problem here is the short season. Your season opens oct. 25. 3 weeks after that Gun Deer season opens. then the snow sets in. I don't hunt hounds during deer season. This is a BIG!! Deer hunting area. I have a lot of spots to hunt, But the easiest way to lose those spots is to make the Deer hunters mad. I give them the woods for their Deer hunting time. That gives me the rest of the year. As hunters we need to give each other a little respect, or we are all the big losers!

last nites hunt

I hunted off the side by side last night. 1st drop cut boJack into woods at the end of a corn field. Its a big block with several hemlock swaps in it. Bojack left pretty good, By no means did he through gravel in my face, But he went hunting right away. He went 300 yards west, then cut 250 yards north. The Garmin showed him checking trees along the way, as well as doing a lot of zigs and loops. This area is all swaps and hemlocks. He cut back to the east, out of the woods into the corn field he come up south threw the corn and back in to me. I walked to the south about 50 yards and told the dog to hunt him up. He went 300 yards south into a beach woods opened twice located and rolled over to a steady chop. It was a Big beach tree full of leaves. We had 3 frost in a row this week and are leaves are comin off. The beach trees are tuff, they hang onto the leaves for along time. It took a while but I did find the coon. We went back to the wheeler. and went to another spot. I cut bojack to the west into a hard woods He went 125 yards and opened about 15 times in the same area. He did this for about 5 minutes giving half hearted locates. I made the mistake of moving in. He was treeing in the air, and bouncing off 3 trees in the same small area. When he seen me he rolled up on a small pine tree. The moon is full and my light was off going into him. I put the lead on him and checked the tree over. In a hunt it would have been a 0 tree, But I was 99.9% sure it was slick. He was trying to wind a lay up and just couldn't get it done. 3rd drop I cut north up a lane way into the woods. He opened twice at about 75 yards. He peeled east anther 50 yards and come down hard with a single located and rolled it over to a hard every breath chop. When I got to him he was on a tree that was surrounded by multiflowered rose bushes on the edge of a bean field. I cut back about 50 yards and went into the bean field. I seen the coon. I walked up to the tree, and this side was worse then the other side. I went back around and had to get on my hands and knees to get threw the thorns. I was thankful I only had to go about 10 to 15 feet to get to the tree. We came out the same way I went in. I had enough and called it a night.
