We had Brian Kelly over back in the summer doing some carpentry work for us and he told me he would love to go squirrel hunting with a dog. I told him I would take him this season. Well according to him he's hooked. First trip and he's wanting to buy a dog. We had a decent hunt until I got the Rhino stuck in the creek and Brian had to wade water to his knees to hook up the winch up. He got wet and soon started getting cold so I cut the hunt short and promised I would take him again soon.
Not sure how many trees we had but it was a bunch. Should have gotten out 2 man limit but that's another chapter in the book. We did end up getting 6 squacks and a grouse.

Knott Co. Ky squirrel hunt

My old Buddy Kevin Conley came by this morning for a little Pr ick eared Feist hunting. We loaded up Princess, Taz , Brownie and two pups Hedi and Knite Rider and hit the muddy trail. Had a great time and fellow ship hunting with Kevin again. Also had some fair dog work but Princess ended up with the most on the tail gate she she got the pic honors. Dogs treed several more dens and we saw 5 more we never got.

Mountain Feist pup

I enjoy getting this kind of report back from our pups and to hear they are early starters putting meat on the ground is just a bib Plus. Dusty is a Aqua X Taz pup.

Took Dusty out in the Wayne National Forest a few days ago. This is were I planned on hunting her most, but she is still getting car sick. Even after being a little sick, she really did well. We were out 3 hours, treed 7, 2 timbered to dens, I let 2 get away, and shot 3. She needs to work on her tailgate pose, but she is hunting well for 6 months

Buckley squirrel dogs

I have been wanting to shoot a few fox squacks to my dogs so we decided to make a trip N & W of here to Magoffin county. The farm we hunted always offered fox squirrels but not today. Treed 15 times and saw 11 of them ending up with a fair tailgate but all greys.

Dog power was bad down today. I loaded up Brownie, Taz and Princess. This was the 1st time I have had Princess out since coming out of heat. Good thing I let he come too. Old Brownie was in heat. I wanted to leave her in the dog box in the back of the truck but was afraid when I come back she may be gone. So I let her ride in the pet taxi. Taz refused to hunt. He stayed right behind the Rhino ever step so I loaded his butt in another pet taxi and just hunted Princess. Well that until she ripped a toe nail in 1/2 and came up lame on us.

Another pup report today from the last Aqua X Taz litter from Bill in Wv.. This makes 4 out of this litter that are aleady treeing their own squirrel and2 from this litter today reporting in with the meat.
(Well, Dusty (Aqua x Taz) finally got fur on the ground.  At exactly 6 months old.  She has probably treed a dozen over the last couple of months, but due to leaves, trees with holes, and poor shooting, this was the first we got on the ground.  We went on a couple hour hunt in the morning and only turned up one, and it went into a leaf nest.  I planned to work around the house and go again in the evening.  Dusty was out on her own, when I heard her treeing over the hill.  I grabbed the gun and went to back her up.  She had the meat, and I shot it out to her.  It still had some life in it, and bit her on the nose.  Not too bad, just enough to really make her mad.  She is tuning out to be a great dog)

Buckley's Satan coming together

We got this report back from  Jeff Moelman of Collins Ohio today about his pup (Buckley's Satan)  out of (Aqua X Taz).
Solo hunted Satan this afternoon treed 3 quick ones only got one though. The two others were in a big 100 ft oak and I lost them. He seems to do much better solo than with another dog that's what everyone tells you and I really believe it "

omega wanting his reward

I figured since I didn't get to hunt on my birthday that the pre-birthday hunt just wasn't going to satisfy me so I took a day after birthday hunt. Boy I sure hope Kevin don't stay mad at me too long. I called him to invite him to go hunting this morning on his only day off at 5 AM!

Omega getting his reward after a nice retrieve. If one notices these gray squirrels are rutting. Bagged a couple of real young squacks also.

Squirrel dogging these two old dogs was rough today hunting these KY. steep hills. They treed up in the 20's and we looked at up in the teens treeing sometimes 2 or 3 in a tree. Only shot one per tree and goot our KY limit. A nice pre-birthday gift my dogs gave me.

Omega is putting it together. He's 14 months old and road hunts excellent, walk hunts,hunts good with other dogs, barks good on the tree, starting to use his nose to tree, retrieves pretty good, and split trees from the older dogs and is holding pressure. Still he's only 14 months old and has lots to improve on.

Omega just keeps improving each hunt.

Dave Mace and his brother flew down from Hegins, Pa. today and landed at the Big Sandy Airport to pick up Dave's male pup out of Dot X Bigun. I met them at the airport and had a nice visit and some lunch before they headed back to the sky with Patches. I invited Dave to the board to keep us posted on his new pup.

I got this puppy report back today from Sandy and Douge Owens of Parsons, WV. This is the 2nd pup they got from us. The other one they say made a dandy dog but got car killed. Cookie is one of the one eared wonders and This makes 3 of this litter that is reported back that are treeing their own squirrels.

Hi Jack,
Sending pics of Cookie. She is out of Boots and Taz. She is 8 months old. Such a good buddy She has treed three times but leaves are on and unabel to find anything. Not any mass so we haven't seen many squirrels. She loves the 4 wheeler and tractor and is a very good companion. She is very sweet and smart. Very obedient. We just wanted to thank you for selling her to us. We are enjoying her very much. Also wanted to tell you we were so sorry to hear about Bunny and her pups. Hope all is well with everyone else. Doug and Sandi Owens

Loaded up Omega, Bigun, Zoey and Aqua 10-6-11 for a little hunting. They treed 7 times , I saw 2 fired 1 shot and come on with no meat.
1st Pic of Lil Zoey. She don't get to go hunting much but man she's a tree dog. Just about has to tree I reckon being out of Lucy X Slick. Take A dog out of the cross and breed it to anything and it'll tree squirrel.

This is Dot X Bigun pups today at 5 1/2 weeks old. Got to thinking today and these pups are Taz bro and sisters. They aren't full bro and sis but more than 1/2. Taz is out of Dot X Slick. These pups are out of Dot and Bigun. Bigun is a pup out of Slick himself. Some of the pups will start heading to their new homes this week end so I thought I would post a new pic. They are growing and changing their looks daily.
 We've had several phone calls and emails but M-3 and M-6 is still available.
Had a decent hunt today all but the tailgate. Taz treed 21 times I saw 5 shot twice and killed 2. Taz sure has a advantage treeing these squirrel laid up in the tops of the tall trees cutting with his winding ability.

Taz is showing Knight-Rider his 4 month old son how its done.
Taz always likes to take his pic with the meat.
Taz making sure his master won't get bit before bringing him the squirrel.
