Awesome. Didn't you have a couple of tan colored hounds last year? I thought I remember a picture of your yota and tan hounds?

Yep their mine! Still got em. One of them was sitting right by me watching that lion when I took the pic of the black dog freeing. Kain is a sit back tree dog  he likes to watch it in the tree, his dad was the same way.

Awesome!!!  Tell me a little bit about your dogs!!

Hard for me to say just a little bit  :chuckle: 

That black one on the tree is Dexter he is just over a year old and he is incredible, he would strike and run bear himself at 6 months old but he never treed until that lion.

The brindle one is a 5 year old plott I had given to me that didn't know how to tree or really do anything in my opinion but I ran her with dogs and worked with her alone for a few months and she started picking things up. She now does it all and fits in perfect.

Kain is my best dog he caught 8-10 bears by himself last spring and a few the spring before at a year old, he's caught dry ground lions by himself and lots of snow lions. He does everything well and is the backbone of my pack at less than 3 years old. He is out of my boyhood dog and is my buddy now that his dad was killed by wolves almost 2 years ago, he filled his shoes well and has surpassed his mom in skill in almost everyway. He's 3/4 plott 1/4 walker.

Chrissy is a 2 year old English dog I had given to me as a pup. She is a good all around dog she will catch bear on her own but I haven't yet given her the opportunity on a cat, she's small and can run all day even when it's getting hot.

That's the 4 that I had with me on that lion Monday  :chuckle:

That's great!!!! I love plott hounds. I had one that I was starting with great lines when we lost the hound hunting here. I am really bummed, I didn't get to go hunt him on bears. His dad was killed by a big lion when he was a pup and he was a great dog from my understanding and helped catch a lot of critters. I know how much hard work goes into it and some of my dads good friends were great hound hunters. Thank you for sharing.

You generally can't ef with Genetics. Nice set of dogs you have, I really miss my hounds. Good doge are generally run by good handlers. They need time to develope and once finished then can be graded.
