Hello Lennard.
I dont like hunting jackals, i dont hunt what i cant eat thats how i work.. Hows the dogs doing Lennard?

Hello Jimmy,
We hunt on private property so no problem what we hunt.
I will see how many pic and videos i can take, coz its bit hard to take pics and chase something. I have 2 Greyhounds that we call Boerwindhond but i dont hunt with them they are bit slow, then i have 2 Racing Greyhounds that i use for hunting they are very good. The one is a son of Crokers Nikita from Ierland, then i have that other male Big Time Spartan the son of Count lani and Foxy Addis, but to me the Irish male is a better hunting dog than the Aussie one.. Then i also have one female that is coming from my own dogs, she have not hunted yet but the brothers and sisters of her is doing very good in the field.. What type of dogs are you using that side Jimmy.?

Nah Ik dacht dat jakhals legaal was in SA en hazen/bokken illegaal? I am not into predator hunting either.

My dogs are fine, I spend time to keep the old one fit and bring the young one on. Real rabbit/hare work has stopped, spring is coming and the hares are mating.

Are your boerwindhonde totally not good at hunting? Don't they stay without injuries better than the track greys?

Very nice Greyhounds you have Jimmy, do you hunt with them or race them?
I will take some pics of my dogs and post them for you. I will also post some pics of racing in SA, we can race the dogs now but no Betting on them..
I had a very very good racing Greyhound that i used for hunting but she died last year November after i used my male to her..

Lennard, Any type of Hunting with Dogs is Illegal in South Africa thats why I hunt on Private Property. The Boerwindhonde are good but i like the speed of Racing Greyhounds, and i dont let my dogs chase while its hot, the South African Greyhounds is just not for me, but if you cross them with Racing stock they get better. it will also depend what you want to chase.. Noting can beat a pure Racing Greyhound with speed..

Jimmy or other readers..
What do you think of this mating.
http://www.greyhound...4&damid=1317899
Pure Irish blood lines are getting hard to find in South Africa and i like them very much, so i think this mating will be good to keep the Irish Bloodline allive in South Africa for some time..

so its like over here really long as you got permission your ok really. I have had a few greys you need to bring them up from a pup like i would a lurcher and there ok but had a couple of retired ones good breeding but it was no good to me head iton luis look it up on greyhound data im on my phone and things like that are hard so you say you can race them now but not bet on them i thought thats what you meant before and do you not think a springbok could beat a grey or do you not hunt them name what you hunt and how the dogs get on and i didn't think there was hares over there either

cheers mate but i cant really take the credit for them they were bred bye someone with over 70 yrs involvement with racing greys :victory: the blue dog was in a rescue and i took him to try hunting as he was so young and he has turned into a decent dog but one thing is he is taking an age to mature but when he does we should be laughing :laugh:

them two greys look nice mate what did they hunt mainly??? :thumbs: :thumbs:

Hi Bradaz2009..
Yes it looks like it, yes using a Greyhound for hunting is all in how they work really, coz if they don't know hunting they can die chasing something.
I only hear from some one last week that its okay to race them but NO bets.
Catch a SpringBok.. Lol if you use a Saluki X or this Boerwindhond with lots of stamina yeah i think they can, but its bit risky trying to catch them coz they run far and going on other peoples grounds is not a very good idea..

We normally hunt DuikerPosted Image

Or Steenbok they are bit harder to catch coz they can really run Posted Image
And some Rabbits

Jimmy.
They are nice anyway lol.
Yea some Racing Greyhounds take some time learning to chase. try and let him see something big and see if he will chase.. I had a good laugh with my young Racing Grey x BoerGrey when she found her first rabbit, when she strike the rabbit makes noise then she let go then the rabbit run again then she chase again it went on for 10min then the rabbit got tired and she walked away..
This Count Lani x Foxy Addis male of me seems to take a long time to mature as well..
I normally hunt Rabbits but now and then a buck or 2, but mostly Duiker coz you can find them every where here in South Africa..
