There's alot on Aussie hunting forums to do with boar and such where they have or do use them. Personally I don't think many of the ones bred in the UK would be much use unless they had the balls to be Caesar dogs at the end of a dig prior to the hunting ban.

We use a few as catch dogs when we hog hunt. The ones we have have never let us down.

I know in the southern U.S were I am. From a lot of hog hunter run them as catch dogs but I have been thinking about seeing what there would do as a catch dog for coyote's and coon sometimes when we run coon the tracking dog get one on the ground and it takes a hard dog to deal with a big coon and on the coyotes the tracking dogs just push them until they are running in a big loop and can get ahead of them I could use any input from you all on what you would think I have never hunted hog but from what I Read any dog that can stop a bor hog should be OK for what I am thinking

I had one some years back black pied bitch was a house dog soft as shit in house and round people with the other dogs ,but one day while I was out checking the fox traps she took a nip off vixen my god she was unstoppable nearly smashed the cage to bits to get to it ,from then on she became my draw dog hard as nails, bushed any cover,got in anywhere you would not believe were she got .but still slept on my daughters bed every night . I think you want the athletic type they have guts and stamina to work all day.butlook for working ones there must be ones in us but oz lads have them and work them

What does a draw do does that mine when a animal goeas to ground that the dog. That brings it out if it is that could be good on coon when they go to ground but on the one were people run them on hogs I have never seen on in real life just in pictures they look kind of small and short legs to have any kind of speed but the ones from a working line could be a total different dog I was just wanted to ask any of you All that has run them
