Stomp, Like I said I believe starting late is a fault. But with the bigger stags they may start a little later in life. I expect them to progress on till 24 months or second season and by then I have a pretty good idea what they are going to be. We here breed for throat dogs 100%, with are eye on getting that elusive single handed  stag .

would 12 month young stag, be on the yotes   maybe feeling  few bites, as  ok  only foxes in the country  but some young dogs that feel the teeth  when young can be put off. its not so much the size of the dogs, really but there mind set, as bigger dogs take long while to mature , my  dog  big animal  and  he is full on in field ,and( as yet) will have go at what ever he sees in front of him , but in some ways still bit puppy  and wimpy temp, he is  just over 2 year old. s o I know what you mean  at that age what there about, but he is compared to smaller type dog  different I think, got a lurcher 25 in 60lb   who always been different mind set to my young big dog  who is 3in taller  20 odd lb heavier .!!

Hay Hound has a 13 month old that stepped up today and made one of the best catches ever, If he keeps up at this pace he'll be something. Vid coming soon.

That second catch was an excellent example of a dog wanting his quarry. :yes:

If importing dogs from the US to the UK wasn't so difficult, id love to see a couple of female coyote dogs sent over and used as fox dogs, i know they'd turn heads and make the bullx lads think

 well when you think about, a yote prob 2 times bigger+ stronger than a fox, and to what they say good fighter so  a  stag hound would kill a fox no prob, and putting  that hybrid  vigour  to good  bull x grey , you have good chance of a lurcher that take any quarry we have in the UK . :yes:  wonder if it will ever happen/?

Bird here is Hay Hound and I broke down in the high desert,he walked a few miles back to the tow rig an brought it back with the trailer . It happens but we have  been lucky..... few miles at the most. Some places if we did it would get unconformable hahahahah! But the badger is equipped  with everything for repairs like a good Baja truck. should be.

great videos, beautiful dogs, how are those dogs bred? any of Uphill scott's blood in them? I'm pleased for you, nice to see you having fun.

  I'm putting another rig together this spring for next year.  Some of the boys are helping me out with some dogs for next year, Lucky to know some great guys.

if you mean  stamina =wind  I reckon a lot more, but grit =guts don't lnow, I think they stags got bit of pit in them in there lines , but 1x pit x grey  nothing touch them for guts .

I dont see British quarry being a problem or running against any BullX. We have them here and in general speaking terms they dont make better coyote dogs than straight Staghounds.Dont get me wrong the American Staghound is not some superdog , just one bred for a very long time by men smarter than me,  I think you have to look at Quarry. The coyote,, is something special, master of the running fight and I'd put my money on a good winter 30 lb coyote against any two lurcher dogs.If dont have it, you cant hunt it , then you cant breed for it,

They do look a powerful animal them coyotes and the stag hound fits the bill to take them on
I would love to see these run British quarry the red stag is where it's at for a test stunt man
Would have loved to see them preban ;)
Good topic this one

single handed cant imagine any dog taking a red stag? Heard of dogs doing it in pairs. A lad up north lost a big 28" half cross on a red stag according to facebook lol ;-). However I wasn't referring to deer :thumbs: . Very enjoyable thread thanks for sharing gents.
