Squirrel dogs
« on: January 28, 2017, 06:56:34 PM »
Jeremy (topdawg) brought his dogs to Hopkinsville for a little squirrel hunting with some friends.  :biggrin: A good time was had by all.  :yahoo:

Sugar and Peanut kept us busy. You better be ready for some walking if you're going to follow those two around the woods for hours.  :whew:

Now that sounds fun! The one dog is so small I bet he could make it halfway up the trees :congrats:

It is great fun Jim, but there is a LOT of walking invloved.

 I would love to do that for sure!  I have been doing some studying on them but I don't think they would survive the winters  :madd:

They live in the Grand Rapids area of MI and don't seem to have any problems.  I don't know about your temps, but snow doesn't bother them at all.  Then again you might have more animals that look at them as a tasty snack.  There is a Red-Tailed hawk that comes to visit about every day but that hasn't slowed the population growth.

I know a teacher here in town (actually lives outside of town) who has a few coon hounds and also started one of the dogs running squirrel.  Not sure, but I don't think it is also used for coons, but I don't know.  He has been having lots of fun with the dog and the squirrels.  Two weekends ago he took his dog and others brought theirs for a youth squirrel hunt over in Indiana.  The kids really enjoyed it.
