Thinks for the advice podunk. I would much rather haul around a .22 mag over a .44 mag or one of those other big bore lever guns. And the ammo would be a ton cheaper to shoot too.

Yes sir, plus its a multi purpose round. You can hunt squirrels and rabbits or in your neck of the woods gray fox and civet cats with solid points.

another plus is that you can still hunt your gun broke dogs with somebody that has a catch dog. It doesn't always work the other way around. most of my dogs don't like gunshots much, they just haven't done it that way, so if my catch dogs are down I'm in a pickle as far as hunting. I'm breaking a couple of young dogs to guns to remedy that. I prefer catch dogs to shooting myself, but it would be nice to at least have the option.

My ultimate goal is to be able to get a catch dog after I get out of college and then start using knives. That was the first way that I ever killed a pig while hunting with dogs, but as I am a college student I can only afford so much at a time.

I dont really like to kill em any more unless I have customers im testin loads or somebody needs the meat. Usually i just put em in the pen for awhile until somebody wants one. As far as gun breaking dogs catch, it doesnt usually take a whole lot. The first year i guided my dogs werent trained to come out so it was a handful. By the end of the first week one of my old timers was picking up on the idea and now i have two or three that will do it.

biggest problem I'm having to overcome with that is that a guy that was hunting dove on the property adjacent to mine shot up my kennels this past dove season. so now some of the dogs hear a shot and think they're gonna get peppered again. I think it's just gonna take some time and consistency to get it going.

I used to blow off a 20 gauge to stop barkers at night. It doesnt seem to affect most of my dogs. Sometimes for whatever reason a dog doesnt like loud noises i.e thunder, cars backfiring, hammmering or gunshots. My mom has an APBT that is out of our old line. Hes fearless on a hog or whatever but hell run and hide at the first loud noise. A blank pistol helped the slower learners I had. Also work with giving em voice commands to "back up" or "come outta there". My old man dog now when I tell em to "come outta there" run straight to my feet until the shot then hell go straight back to the hog. Its not too hard and ive been lucky with smart dogs that make me look good.

Not to hijack your post, but it's kind of on topic. I am trying to learn the ropes of hog hunting, be it with dogs or without. I live in Clermont, FL, so if anyone wants someone to trail along with them and be a teacher, I am a willing student.
