    Socialization

    That’s basically what happened however I do feel setting played a role as well, this I think because when he’s met the friends dogs he’s had no issue. With them he goes in, sniffs, and they’re done really. This situation (with regards to this post) worked out great IMO because while my dog got worked up the other was bored basically. It didn’t pay much mind to the little dog barking at it chest all puffed out

    I assume the little guy reacted as he did because he was startled. He gets taken out to parks etc multiple days of the week and loves people. I’m just sort of realizing he hasn’t interacted much with dogs except for those we own and a friends. Going to have make a bit more of a point to do so

    My pup gets along great with my dogs, but as we found out today he’s protective of me when encountering another dog that’s not expected. So, how much do you all get your dogs around other dogs? I know us yanks do things a bit different with barn hunting and using two dogs at once with some regularity so I just want my dog to be ok with others

    best age to start pups

    So I take my pup (just over 5 months) for a leashed walk around town once a day and 3-5 days take him out and about off leash in the woods. I’ve avoided one opossum with the pup so far but have been walking him near brush piles and blow downs. Should I avoid them for the time being? I’m trying to get him out and about but don’t wanna rush him

    Guy I hunt with ONLY barn hunts and will let me use his anytime I want. Gotta get this pups teeth set before I consider any groundhogs.

    I don’t know for sure but my guess would be I couldn’t afford the start up plus sales in general just isn’t my scene. I’m becoming less and less in the mood for having to do stuff like that.

    They’re tough to find. I’ve heard Johnson telemetry sells a few, otherwise the guys I know that use them got them from over there and got killed with shipping. Debens you can get over here however?

    New Season In France

    I guess what I was attempting to say was that it was much more ingrained in French culture? I don’t remember if I read it or heard in an interview with a guy from Canada who hunted with hounds; he compared it to Americans and guns.

    New Season In France

    I’ve heard France is one of the best places for hunting/working dogs. Would you say this is true? The US is still doing well however I feel we will be gradually losing the rights to use dogs for hunting. France, if it remains, might become the place to go!

    We had a pair of gray foxes that lived under an old shed by my parents probably 8-10 years ago. They had a few kits. All of them got rabies/distemper and were killed because of that but that was a year that predator numbers were incredibly high. The rabbit population was shit witching a 45 mile radius of where I live. Coyotes got hunted pretty heavy that year so I’d assume we are close to the up swing on this current cycle. Guys have been huntin coyotes real hard so it’ll be interesting to see if the fox can rebound.

    I have considered it. It’s way too early for me to worry much about any hunting other than rats and the like. We will see how the summer is for them.

    This is the first year in 4 years I’ve seen a fox and it was in town. Coyotes have really pushed them out of the area. I talked to a couple guys this week that know the areas of a few but I really don’t know if I want to hunt them with their population being so low the past couple years.

    Got the pup out today for a walk. Checked out this rock pile, didn’t look like anything of significance was living in the area but good experience for him
