Hunting Ky Squirrel dogs

David Large ( banjerman) from southern Ohio comes down and bring his Little Babs" yellow mtn Copper X Buckley's Bunny" and took a hunt with us today. We had a decent hunt I guess even after the bad luck we ran into. Starting off Dave was to be here around 8 AM. But he got down to about Larence Co and a warning light came on on his truck. So it takes it back home and traded trucks and switched dog box over and comes on down. So we loaded the Rhino on the trailer and took off. we hunted about 30 min. when I realized the Rhino was low on gas. So we come out of the woods , loaded the rhino back on the trailer and pulled it to the gas station and filled her up. So now we were ready to hunt. The dogs treed 18 times, we looked at 10 and killed 6. Some how we managed to lose one. Oh yea we got bird dogs too. See the big ruffed grouse Banjerman shot.

In the pic is Bangerman, Taz and Babs. We also found a big biull elk that looked to be sick. Maybe bangermaa will post a pic of him. Coming out we saw a herd of elk. Looked to be 30 or more in it

How to train a squirrel dog

This is two pups I sold Donnie & Penny Arnold of Rogersville TN. Ace( 5 months) the Black and white pup( Bunny X Bigun) and Taboo (7 weeks) the white and lemon pup ( Mugsy X Bigun).
I am asked all the time how old does a Buckley Mountain Feist pup need to be to start hunting it. My answer is always start hunting it from time it gets in its mommas belly. Lay it up about 8 weeks after its born and start hunting it again. The ARONALDS are doing just this. They are exposing these pups to game and woods time on a regular basis. I will be very surprised if the Arnold's don't end up with a couple squack machines out of these two. Keep up the good work Donnie

Tennessee Mountain Feist Squirrel dog

Meet Taboo. A Buckley Mountain Feist belonging to Penny Arnold of Rogersvill, TN. One has to truly appreciate it being a mountain Feist breeder and getting a pup in the hands of someone that will work with it and expose it to game. That is what's being done with this pup. At 7 weeks old it's getting woods tiem and it sure looks like she likes the taste of a squirrel.

Jack, Here are a few pictures of Chester at seven and one half months.He is 29 lbs. He treed his first squirrel last Friday morning and second saturday afternoon. When I got to the tree he wanted to leave, called him back and shot the squirrel out.Gave him his reward as you can see he liked it! Also put a picture shows my little female's looking out of the box. She is in heat now. Cooked some shrimp and soft shell crabs saturday night, thought about you!

I got this report back from Thomas Ellis of Penningtongap, Va, and a pic of his Buckley Mountain Feist Psalms 91 out of Bunny & Bigun..
Good Morning to you Jack,

I hope that this finds you and your family well. How are the squirrels your way? Here in Va where I hunt they are very limited right now, plenty of mast but hardly any squirrels around. I hear that in the next county up from me that they are covered up with them. I am working on getting some places to go in that county right now but with deer season being in that stops me cold for now. I have attached some pic's of Psalms 91, he is doing great for the limited amount of squirrels and me having a hard time getting off of work to get in to the woods. But every time that I take him out, I see such an improvement in him. I was also wondering, I am interested in looking for a young started Buckley Mtn Feist female that is not in the same line as Psalms and I know that you told me that from time to time that you work with some of your pups and then sell them later on. IF you have one or know that you will have one coming up please keep me in mind about this. Thank you for such a Great Breed of hunting dog. Have a Great day.

Thanks again
Thomas Ellis

Roger & Jeff tailgate

Sterling and I just returned from a squirrel hunting trip up in Northern Ohio. As you can see, we had a good hunt. In the second & third pictue we're holding Seven, Cinders, Lacy & Hickory (all are Buckley bred dogs except for Hickory who is McAndrews/Galla Creek bred). Second Picture is me and Jeff Molehlman on the right, the third picture is Sterling with Jeff.
The dogs treed numerious times, we knocked out 13 big reds to them.
Sterling and I will probably never have this kind of hunt with big reds again, because we just don't have that many down was a memorable hunt and Jeff and his wife Jodi treated us like we had money or something :-)
Hope you enjoy the pics

squirrel dog tail gate pic

This after noon we loaded up some big guns and hit the dusty trail for a lil facs and furious action. We loaded up Brownie, Taz and Bigun. Bigun isn't in the picture because he would keep jumping off the hood.

Not sure how many trees we had but several. Not sure how many squacks we saw but several. Not sure how many we shot at and missed, but several. I do know when the smoke settled we had 11 gray squirrels in the bed of the rhino.

Buckley Mountain Feist

Jack, you would have been proud of these two yesterday. I hunted the two Buckley squirrel dogs and had a good day. Hunted them solo. Jeb treed six that I saw. Two timbered into big trees with alot of leaves didn't look too long because I already had three in the bag,I put him up when we got four in the bag.
Then I took Lou and she treed six also, two timbered out the other side of the tree and couldn't get a shot and they made it to dens But I did knock four out to her too.
It was dark when I got in so I put the squirrels in the fridge so I could get a picture today.

Drew wanted me to take off this morning and go squirrel hunting with him. I'm glad I did. Seven (Joe Black X Buckley's Princess) was on his game this morning. He treed 8 or 9 times with a couple of them being dens, we couldn't fine some of them because of the leaves, but we did end up with four. Drew's shooting skill exceeds his fathers :-) Hope you enjoy the pictures.


Squirrel hunting with dogs

Our oldest son "Drew" came in from Ft. Benning, GA. this afternoon and wanted to go squirrel hunting. So we hooked up with Sterling aka "Cappieman" and hunted an area around Priest lake. The dogs (Sam & Smarty) treed several times, we saw three, knocked two out. Sterling is holding our only fox squirrel and Drew is holding Pretty Boy Smarty. Drew is going to be in for a few days. I hope he has time to join us for some additional hunts while he's home.

Evening Jack:

Got in a little early this evening, loaded up Seven & Smarty and headed to the woods. Dropped Seven and he treed three times, saw two and got them, one tree was a big cedar den, I could hear the squirrel but couldn't get him to run out. Loaded up and moved about a mile and dropped Smarty. Sun was almost down but he did tree once on a big Oak out about 150 yards, but I couldn't find the meat. Still a lot of leaves. Ran into Crappieman who was hunting Louann. He had knocked out one to her and said she was hunting good. Here's a quick cell phone picture.

Good Morning Jack:

I really didn't have going squirrel hunt'n on my mind this morning....I was headed to the dump, but had Seven with me. It's juvenile muzzleloader this weekend so I figured the woods would be full of young sportsmen :-) Happened to drive by a place I hunt sometimes that is a long & narrow strip of woods between the lake and a line of houses and no one was parked there. Decided to drop Seven for a few minutes primarily for the exercise. To make a long story longer, he ended up treeing five times, saw two, shot one. The three other trees he made were too close to the houses for me to hunt and shoot, so I had to go in and lead him off those trees.
