  1. Sylamore Creek Sambone treed on a yard squirrel by scent today in the Ozarks.  This will be his year, I'm hoping, as he turned on toward the end of last season.  He looks alot like a female in Southern Ark....

      Sambone is a good looking well built Cur and he is looking good stretched out on that tree treeing. There has been some good well trained Road dogs of different breeds that I have personally hunted with and owned that was trained in those Ozark Mountains. Good luck with him this season and thanks for sharing. Jerry

  2. When training pups do you find it better to work one at a time

      ....... You are welcome. For what ever reason I was thinking you was getting a male off of him instead of a female. LOL I have been on this site for several years now and I have never tried to post a picture on here because I use a flip phone and I can not post pictures off of it. I can send people pictures of my dogs to their phone but I can not post pictures on here off of it. My number is 770-686-6782 if you ever want to send me a picture on my phone or want to call me for any reason. Take care. Jerry

      ....... The reason I have not received any replies on our old post is because I deleted all my old stuff on here because it was pilling up and I cleaned it out. LOL If you send me a new PM it will come through and I will reply to them. I did text Seth to see if you had came and got him yet and he told me you did. I personally think he will make you a good Combo type Coon and Squirrel dog that you and your grand daughters can enjoy for several years. Thanks for letting me know and take care. Jerry

      ...... If you have tried to send me anymore PM's on here I have not received any because I cleaned all my PM off of here and deleted them after the last one you sent me that I replied too because they were taking up to much space. Take care. Jerry

      ....... When you take 2 or more young dogs to the woods at the same time trying to get them started, all they want to do is play with one another instead of learning what you have them out in the woods to learn about the game you want them to hunt for, find, and tree. If you are training 2 or more Beagles/Rabbit dogs/pups at the same time, that is a total different story. They are bred to be a pack type dog, meaning they are bred to run a Rabbit with more than 1 dog at a time. As far as training a squirrel dog no matter its breed, they normally will learn quicker and do better when you hunt them solo. I start all my young pups off at first by hunting them with one of my older better trained dogs until I see them hunting for, finding, and treeing their own game while I am hunting them with my older dog. The young dogs I keep to hunt and train, needs to show me at a early age that they can and will split tree with my older dog and hold their tree under gun and dog pressure. Normally I will go to my old dog that is treed first and shoot out its squirrel to it and then I will go to my young pup that is split treeing with my old dog and shoot its squirrel out to it that it has treed. If they will not, then I will find someone else that wants them to hunt. Once my young dogs shows me it can and will hold its tree under gun and dog pressure, I will hunt it solo from that point on as long as I keep it. Just like Levi said, I like hunting 1 dog at a time because they have to learn how to do everything by themselves if they want to become a well rounded, well trained, squirrel dog one day in the future.

      ....... YES, YES, YES! Working 2 at a time means twice the work and twice the amount of time you have to have to work with each pup. Most people has a limited amount of spare time to work with a pup. Jerry

  7. Jerry, I really enjoyed looking at and reading about your dogs from the past 20 years. I really like the looks of that Sport dog. Its's really nice of you to share the sport with others like you have. Thanks for sharing.

      ....... You are welcome. Sport was a real nice Road and walk type dog. I raised, started, hunted, and trained him and during the 6 years I hunted him I knocked out over 1,100 squirrels to him and I knocked out over 1,100 to his full litter mate sister Baby the Black and Tan female in those pictures. The half Black and half White faced male dog was their full litter mate brother that I called Pistol. He is colored up like "Trent's" Jack dog on here that is out of my Toby dog and his Rae female. I like the bigger size Feist because I enjoy road hunting as much as I do walk hunting and they are big enough to do both. Take care and stay after them. Jerry
