    We tell the dogs only in the hardwoods and they listen. LOL
    Pure Luck..... That was on a base of a ridge slope leading down into some pretty miserable country.

    Love the looks of those " Plockers " ! LOL
    Nice built hounds also.
    Used to have one myself.
    She didn't care for bears , but was a coon catching machine. Fastest track dog I've ever seen.

    Had a marathon run on our last training session. The bear took the start dogs into no mans land and walked circles for awhile. Eventually he moved to within earshot and we cut more pups to him. When the cut dogs caught up, things moved along a little better. He treed just long enough for us to get halfway there before he bailed. The dogs were caught up at the next road after about 6hrs on the run. I didn't see him but the guys who did said he was about 180. Looking forward to camp and the real deal next week.

    I sure hope these are delayed posts as I thought training ended early in the month.

    I stand corrected. I wasn't aware of the difference with lower and upper, now I know.

    Good luck this season.
