Loaded up Brownie & Taz and drove to Central Ky and met up with MtEdenbeagler and cfriends. Sorry can't remeber name.

for a little squack hunting today. Man what a fun day it was. Larry is a great guy , has some very good young prospects and has squirrels with plenty of mast for them.
We got there this morning and turned the dogs loose and things started out real slow. It was foggy, cold and lots of water still on the trees and limbs. Dogs treed a few but the squirrels hadn't been down on the ground yet and apparently were moving though the trees because the dogs were having a rough time winding the squirrels.
But from about 12 to 2PM it was pretty action packed to say the least. Dogs treed around 30 times, we looked at 19 and bagged 18. And I finally got to shoot some fat Fox squacks out to my dogs. Don't you just love hunting those big critters? We had one tree that had a fox and grey squirrel both in it. Both squirrels started timbering at the same time. Didn't do them much good though because we had some prick eared feist power after them. The dogs split up with some following the fox and the rest following the grey. I say both are skinned by now also.
We had some 2 way split trees and at least one 3 way split tree. Larrys young female caught a grinner on the ground and Brownie and Taz treed another up a bush no thicker than a broom handel. Really liked the way Larrys lil yellow female hunted and treed today. SHe was in on lots of action and even treeing her own squacks.
Thank you Larry for the invite. I had a blast!

Mountain Feist pup treeing at 6 months

I just got a letter and a couple pics from Louie hall of Castelwood Va.. He bought a Bunny X Bigun Mountain Feist pup out of their last litter. This is the kind of reports I always enjoy getting back. These pups are now 6 months old and have reports of 3 of them already treeing their own squirrels.
Below is the litter and a couple pics of Buddy on the wood.I f you look at his mouth on one of them looks like he is letting her rip."barking".
As bad as I dread it I'm going to have to get old Bigun out and take him on a hunt so I can get some new pics and video for the ones that are hunting his pups. Did I say I dread it. The last time I had him out he went .87 mi on the Garmin and treed!

Hunting squirrel dogsagain

Well as a lot of you on here are aware of I haven't been squirre dog hunting with my Mountain Feist since banjer man came down from Ohio I think the 1st week of December and took a hunt with me. We had deer season , bull elk season , black powde, cow elk season and I've been under the weather a tad. Not to mention all the bad weather.
With the sun shining and the temperature at 42 this afternoon I decided to load up old Brownie, Princess , Em's pup Omega, Taz and hit the dusty trail. Or should I say muddy trail..
I have been stuck on 99 squirrels ever since the 1st week of December. Not to bad I guess since I have missed 6 weeks of the best 6 of hunting season and hunting mostly right here at the house and 99% time by my lonesome.
Well today I finally broke the century mark.Treeing 8 and Killing 3 making my season total at 102 to date.

First drop I dropped Brownie and the pup Omega and nothing wasn't moving, Never made a tree or smelled a squirrel.
The next drop I dropped Princess and Taz. They treed two times and I got one of them. Next drop I dropped Taz by himself and he made 6 trees and I got two of them out to him. Got a couple pics of couple treeing but they aren't very good quality. Also got a couple good videos of him and princess treeing, alone with one of Taz making a awesome retrieve . I was standing up in the road and Taz winded that squirrel clear accross the creek. He was standing at least 60 yds back hammering on it. The reason why it was so thick, when the dozer made the road he had piled up a bunch of trees and bush over to the side. It looked so thick a black snake would have problems crawling through it. But old Taz saved my hide. He went through it and retrieves the squirrel right to my hand.
I will have the video on the video downloads as soon as it downloads,

Taz made two awesome jobs on the same squirrel today. He first winded it and treed it over 60 yds away. If you see him he is standing in the road and the squirrel is clear across the creek up a tree. I was watching him when he treed it.

I shot this squirrel and it feel about 60 or 70 yds across the creek. I was standing in a old gas well road. When they built the road the Little had piled brush up so thick a black snake couldn't crawl through it. But old Taz saved my hide.  After making a incredable tree on this squirrel He went down through all this mess and brought the dead squirrel right back to my hand.
 I really love this little dog. Every time  I take him hunting it seems he does something awesome for me.

Here is another clip of Taz teeeing up a 100 foot hemlock tree. We got him too.
