I've wanted to go preditor hunting for years. Got a call and made a few week attempts at calling after quail hunting. Listened to calls on the internet and tried to immitate as best as I could. Thing is, all my hunting buddies prefer birds to preditors. I would love to buy lunch/dinner and a few beers for any one that would like to teach an old man some new tricks. PM me and we'll figure out a time and place to go.

This is what my buddy Idaho does for fun. He is 6' 3"

(Well Christmas came early for me. I had the opportunity to go up mountain lion hunting with a buddy of mine. We turned the dogs out at 2pm and had the cat treed by 2:30. Shot him with my bow at 17 yards. He is a 130-140lb tom.)
Nice cat!

A few more pics of the tools of the trade...I rarely get many pics during a hunt as things start happening pretty fast and then I am inspecting dogs and treating injuries . I need to quit that and preserve some images. Anyway , more of my fast dogs and Airedales.

I'd love to watch your Saluki's hunt and then the Airedales rip some butt!

I did a Hawaiian pig hunt, the dogs where "trailers" (Saluki types) and "Grabbers", don't remember for sure what breed. Maybe Greatdane/pitbull cross? Both da-kine dogs worked those 3-400 hundred # boars over.

OUT STANDING! That is the Sport of Kings!

How do you follow your Salukis?:worship:

This is actually one of my favs...look just in front of the dogs and you can see they are just about to make the hit.

These actually aren't Salukis, alba. These are what's typically referred to as staghounds....American Staghound - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the UK, you hear alot about "lurchers".....that is a sighthound crossed to a non-sighthound breed for a desired result . Collie x greyhounds are popular , so are bull x grey in some areas . In fact, if you've ever seen the movie 'Snatch' you see an example of 'Coursing' ( I believe the Irish gypsies in the movie called it 'cahrsin') with lurchers.
However, a Stag should be all sighthound. They're usually a Heinz 57 of sighthounds ,but it should be all sighthound...even though I have seen alot of damn good coyote dogs that were a Greyhound x GWP and then back to Greyhound . You try to mix sighthound breeds that are known for endurance ,like a borzoi , to a breed known for speed; and Greyhounds are king at speed . Over time, breeders develop lines that have plenty of speed and endurance along with efficient dispatch ability . In the end you have lethal marathoner.

As far as following, once the dogs are dumped ...it's usually a race to get to a high point to watch it all play out. However, most runs don't last all that long .Even when the dogs are launched a qtr. mile out , alot of times they will close the distance real quick before the coyote fully grasps what's taking place and by then it's to late. Once a race kicks up, the coyote has 3 choices ....1. head for cover as cedar canyons and brush are remove the dog's greatest asset.2 'tree'..yes a coyote will tree 3. go to ground . As a general rule, I won't send a denning dog in after a denned coyote or shoot one out of a tree ...I figure if he made it to either one then he won the match.Only exception is if I am participating in a gov. funded hunt , then it's a depredation exercise and no longer hunting per se.They've reached concentration levels were someone's way of life is at stake. ;)
