Love those rigs  :thumbs:  Just a question: how many square miles does 'the high desert' cover? Just can't get my head around the vastness of where you live/run the dogs.

Skycat-We are 80 miles apart from each other, and hunt all the ground between us. There is ALOT more ground than that though. I had an Englishman here to hunt years ago, and the thing he seemed most amazed by was the vastness...

 

Take care.

Thanks and WOW! 

 

One thing I've always wondered is what else, apart from coyotes, live on that sort of ground. Ground hogs?  But what about hares? Or something similar. It would seem strange for that kind of open land not to contain hares of some sort: they are all over the rest of the world but I don't hear of them in the US much.

There doesn't seem to be a coursing community over there: any thoughts on that?

Brill pics  :yes:  , same as skycat  do you get many rabbits or hares out there, as the yotes got to eat somting.? would imagine your stags would do well on rabbit+hares ,with there speed+stamina, or dont you bother and just do yotes.??

skycat/bird-Our blacktail jackrabbits (hares) mostly stay where the sage is thick, so not great running. The coyotes live on mice, voles, whistle pigs (gophers), badger, antelope fawns, deer fawns, sheep and calves etc...
We run jacks on the lamp, and on the occasion we find one in the open. There are spots and folks here that just run hares.

 

Take care.

One thing i've always wanted to know is how fast are the Pronghorns when compared to a white tail or a jackrabbit? if it were legal I'd love to have a pop at one of those 'speed-goats'...

Lets just say this.  Good luck catchin a white tail with a dog unless the situation is way in your dogs favor and catching a pronghorn aint friggin happening unless something goes drastically wrong for the goat.

Thanks for the reply. I've always wondered about Pronghorn. They said that the Blackbuck of India was uncatchable but I think some pure saluki's caught them by a war of attrition.

How would, say, a greyhound compare to a whitetail, speedwise?  thanks  JD
