Default How many love to hunt with a tree dog?

Love to hunt with a dog! I have an original MT
Cur squirrel dog. ' lucie 'She's a dandy tree dog, and my best friend to boot!! I use to coon hunt, but at 70 yrs old, I had to slow down a little. I've had walkers, blueticks, but the best breed I've had for coon and squirrel are MT curs. I had an excellent MT Cur coon dog, ' bandit' and 2 great Mr Cur squirrel dogs. Mollie, and Lucie. And I love to talk about tree dogs, would love to hear about your dogs and hunts !!

first off welcome to the site
and I can agree, not much better in life than watching a good dog do what nature wanted it to do
However, I never did much tree dog hunting, be it squirrels, coons, or other things
as to be honest I don;t care to eat any of that stuff, and don't shoot things I don't eat, or have others that want

But I have many many many great memories of my bird dogs over pheasants and other upland game in some picture perfect places over the yrs, that I will cherish till the day I pass on!
and still miss them dogs that passed on!

its a joy that those that never hunted over there best friend/dog, will never understand I think and a its shame too!
there missing out on something pure and natural and amazing at times to watch them work with there noses
NO toy or play time will ever compare , to seeing them do what they were made to do! IMO!

I'm with you on the bird dogs. It's special to watch.

Default Tree dog

Thanks for the welcome mrbb. I've never had bird dogs, but I know I'd enjoy it just as much as my tree dogs. Your right, there's a special bond between the hunter and his dog,!!

I'm planning to take a new puppy in my family and I'm planning to grow it as a hunter dog. Which breed can you suggest?

I have a 5 mo old brindle cur male that I'm hoping loves to chase squirrels as much as my 8yr old son. Haven't really chased them much in the last 30 years after I discovered bowhunting. However, now that I've taken the boy and he is ate up with it, I figured I'd get back into it. We are definitely in a target rich area as they are literally everywhere. Care to give any tips on training or getting the dog started? I've never hunted them with a dog.
