old squirrell dogs of the past

This was another pic taking in the 1970's. of our old Pal dog and two of his pups treeing.

Old Squirrel dog picture.

Back when they all had long tails. I lost a lot of my old pictures to water damage a few years ago but my daughter was doing some cleaning out the closet and found a few for me.

This picture was taken in 1979 and he would have been about 10 years old at the time. He was of one of my old dogs named Pal. He was the real deal squirrel dog and great reproducer. On a one day hunt we shot out 42 squirrels to him. His blood runs thick in all my dogs I hunt to this day.

Squirrel dog tail gate

Princess gets on the score board .

Done a couple mod's to the Rhino. Added 2 more pet taxies so I can haul more and road more dogs. I also took the gun racks off te back roll bars and mounted them on the hood. This way I have easier access to them. Not to mention keep a eye on my guns better. While they where mounted on the back roll bar a limb hit my shotgun and knocked it out of the rack. I never missed until the dog treed a squack and I had no gun to shoot it with,

Tennessee squirrel hunting

Tennessee squirrel hunting
I got the next two pictures and hunting story from Roger Littlejohn and his hunting buddy Sterling Earheart of TN. today.
If you guys out there hunting these Buckley dogs enjoy seeing these pics and reading others hunting stories Email me yours and I'll post them here on the BLOG. JACK.

Good Morning Jack:

Sterling and I took the Buckley Boys for an early morning round today. Hunting them solo, first out of the box was Buckley's Jeb (Bigun X Bunny). After a brief encounter with a couple of yotes, Jeb treed twice and had the meat on both trees. We ended Jeb's round on a high note and broke out Buckley's Ol #7. Seven's first tree was a den, but it didn't take him long to tree twice more and we found the mean on both of those trees. In about two hours we hunted both dogs, treed 5 times, shoot 4 male squacks.

In the first picture is Sterling with one of Jeb's squirrels, about to give Jeb a couple of Squack Treats :-)

In the second picture, Sterling is holding the Buckley Boys (Jeb on left & Seven on right) in front of their Squack pile.

Mountain feist breeders

Em calls these two natural bob tail pups Jumpy F-(black & white Snowflake X Tax) and Omega M-( red and white Aqua X Taz). They are very friendly outgoing pups.
Being a mountain Feist breeder these two pups are very good examples of what we try to accomplish in looks and temperament. Now if they will tree game like their parents and ancestors will complete the package.

Snake bite dog

Originally uploaded by lindakaybuckley
Got this pic story from Roger Littlejohn sounds like this pup is in good hands after the snake bite.
Not sure if you knew, Pretty Boy Smarty got bit on the side of the face by a Copperhead snake while hunting on August 28th. He did fine following a treatment of benadryl, but we noticed his left eye (the blue one) appeared to be getting infected, so Pat took him to the Vet this morning only to discover that he had been bitten twice. Evidently after the snake initially struck him on the side of the face, Smarty went back in after him and got bit around his left eye. One of the fangs entered the lower part of his eye, but missed the cornea etc. Vet says his eyesight is fine and will not be affected in any way following a round of antibiotics. They had to sedate him to check his eye and also found a large grass seed imbedded in his eye. He must have gotten the seed imbedded when he was scooting his face across the ground after the snake bite. At any rate, Pretty Boy Smarty is going to be fine with a little rest. Pat, who is an ER nurse, has him resting comfortably at home. She sent me this picture after returning from the Vet. He's sleeping off the sedation :-)

Originally uploaded by lindakaybuckley

Rogue is 11 pounds now. She will finish about 22lb-24lb mark I would guess. She is not short legged. She is a bit longer in the body then my Decker Terriers. She has the best voice I ever heard out of a Terrier and is full of hunt. Very happy with her and she will most diffidently fill what I was looking for.

I appreciate it,

Hunting squirrels with dogs

I got this pic today from Jeff Moehlman of Ohio and his two Buckley dogs Lacy ( Bunny X Bigun) Cinders ( Dot X Pumpgun)
Went this morning for a little bit made 4 solid trees Cinders busted one in the woods on the ground and she looked like a lightning bolt flying through the woods after it.It went up a 100ft red oak and I couldn't find it. Saw one more in a big wolf oak saw it but it must have went to the top lost it. Never got off a shot but I was happy with the way the dogs hunted even in the dry conditions.

Treeing Feist squirrel dogs

Jewell Bealmear and wife Linda of Cadiz (Lake Barkley) Kentucky drove out to Hazard last evening and spent the night then drove on over this morning to pick up a pair of Buckley Mountain Feist pups. The black and white pup Jewell is holding in a natural bob tail female out of Aqua X Taz. The red and white female is out of Conley's Casie and Bigun.

Jewell just got home from Afghanistan where he has worked 3 years for the civil engineers. Jewell first called me from Afghanistan a while back and said after looking at all the Feist dogs on the web that our dogs was what he was looking for. He said actually Bigun looked very much like the old 3 year old Feist he has now.

Jewell says his place joins Lake Barkley and has invited Kevin and me out hunting with him. Good luck with your pups Jewell and Kevin and me look forward taking you up on the hunting offer next year.

picture of mountain feist

Roger Littlejohn sends me another pic and hunt he made today with his young dog Ole # 7. Its good seeing #7 is getting woods time. Sounds like he is on his way to making another good one. Keep the pics and hunts coming Roger and we'll keep posting them. It sure looks like its going to be a even worse year here this season than even last unless some move in fast. Jack
Evening Jack:
I took Seven for a quick round this afternoon....slightly less than an hour. He treed five times but I was only able to find one because of the leaves, it showed it's self by timbering out on him.
I'm glad to see that he's beginning to use his nose a little more. He'll be putting all those scenses togeather this season and learning to trust what that nose is telling him :-)
Hope you enjoy the picture

Jack, took Blaze out for the first time this morning and man was he on his game. He made several trees and looked darn good doing it. I killed one and saw a few others but was by myself and had a .22 so not a lot I could do. Still, I had a darn good time following him. He is gonna make a good one I think, already is actually.

Got this pic and report back From Roger LittleJohn today. This really makes me proud seeing others enjoy their dogs they got from us.
I would like you say thank you Roger and Sterling for doing your part taking your pups to the woods so they would become what they were bred for. Jack
Sterling and I took Jeb & Seven for a short round this morning and hunted each one of them solo. It was Jeb's first hunt of this year's squirrel season. He treed twice with the first tree having two squirrels in it. Nothing like starting the season with a double hit :-) Jeb finished his round with two trees and three squirrels.
We put Jeb up and let Seven have a little fun. Seven treed twice with the meat both times.
We finished up our 2 hour morning hunt with a total of 5 squirrels (4 grays & 1 fox squirrels) all males.
Hope you enjoy the tailgate picture.

Got this report back from James Dockey of Murphy, N.C. this morning of his 7 month old prick eared natural bob tail future North Carolina Squirrel dog Buster pup out of Bigun & Bunny. James says this pup is a 30 pounder.
Attached are some pictures I made last month of Buster in the woods and his new roof on the lot.

He really likes to be in the woods. Took him out on the mountain this evening and he is starting to pickup a track and follow it to a tree and look up the tree. Nothing lazy about this dog except his trainer.

Catch you later.
