Howdy Jackjr, congrats, what type of hounds are you running?  Are you near the eastside or are you on the wetside?  I'd be happy to help out, do you have a sled?

I am from the west side.  Might need some dogs.  I think my dog deal might not pan out.  So if it does not work I will need to find some help.  Or just eat the tag.  Any ideas would be great  Thanks Jack

Well, I hesitate to answer this because I'm gonna sound like a jerk, don't mean to, but here goes.  Jack did you already sign your sworn affidavit that you own dogs that can bay and tree lions?  If so and you don't have dogs you probably should send your permit back in, you get your preference points back and they will issue your tag to someone with dogs.

Sorry if my post came across as trying to scam the system.  I do own dogs.  Not afraid to admit that I am fairly new the the game and am not the best yet. I am lucky to have a friends help which has lots of experence  He  has a medical issue that might not let him go.  So to make a long story short I was looking for some help If he is not able to go.  Because it is a long trip for me. I would also not be afraid to turn in my tag if I dont go.  I would rather have someone else have a chance to get one than just eat my tag.  So sorry I was just trying to do what I thought was fair for other hunters

hey machias, I totally AGREE with you Fred, I am already complaint, becasue there is almost around 2,000 applied for five county, I DONT think whole 2,000 own any finished hounds. AFTER we all worked so hard to train and build those hounds to be good hunter, and  This was BS!  anyway what a waste!   :bash:
I am sorry for who ever own hounds that didnt get any draw! dont worry I didnt get any luck for four years! GEEZ...  :'( I hope next year will be good for you all. keep chase.... :)

Jackjr, I apologize for jumping to conclusions.  If you have young dogs and need some help I would be more then happy to help you out.  Do you have a snowmobile?  Without one you will be quickly locked out of most areas by the snows.  Again I apologize, if your still interested in some assistance, let me know.

Coonhound those numbers are a little misleading.  There was about 500 folks who put in for all four units, so not so bad, about 500 folks TOTAL applied for the permits.  Probably a little high, I would imagine there are 200-250 houndsmen in this state.  Quite a few of thoise are multiple members from the same household applying.

CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT PUT IN FOR THESE PERMITST HAVE HOUNDS IN THIS STATE.  tHE dEPT. NEEDS TO COME UP WITH A BETTER FILTERING SYSTEM. THESE PERMITS ARE FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT HAVE HOUNDS AND WE SHOULD ALL GET A PERMIT EVERY YEAR BY MY COUNT. HAPPY FOR THOSE WITH A DOG THAT GOT DRAWN AND EVEN HAPPIER FOR THOSE THAT DON'T HAVE HOUNDS AND DIDN'T GET DRAWN.
