deer dogs (preban)

Recommended Posts

Chinks can be roe size in the body but with shorter legs and munties are smaller and maybe 1/2 grown lamb size,it's the fight in the munties that makes them harder work but not every one fights back..

Right, so not that big so, now I understand how some whippets could take them, preban, .

What are the like to reproduce, would it take them long to populate an area

Yeah they don't go down with out a rough and tumble to a big dog there nothing really but to a light framed dog they are abit of a handful places I used to run them preban are basicly places that are thick with cover with spots here and there that they can break abit of open ground you deffo need a dog that doesn't give them much breathing space

A collie or fast lab could take a chink on arable land and totaly unsporting with a running dog imo and if we were just running for sport rather than just for the pot we'd wait till after xmas when the meadows were half flooded or the arable good and soggy.Then you get some of the best small deer coursing you can think of and i heard "that's dead" a few times only to see the chink hit some water then fly off and the dog hit a dead end..

Reproduction they do all year round where it's mild enough but in all the numbers we took i'd say we only had a dozen or so carrying young,so maybe just a spring,summer time breeder???...I'd say they'd do well in some parts of soggy Ireland as the name Chinese WATER Deer holds a bit of a clue in where they like to live..Come over with a big long net and i'll take you to a place:laugh:,but transporting them they need to be caged in crammed conditions as they thrash about and bust themselves up like hares can do....

So preban, when running for sport or freezer, a grew, would be plenty capable for them, no need for big strong lurchers.

On wet ground i saw bull x's and other heavy dogs not do so well as the lighter boned ones and that good dog i knew was a merlin and eve bred dog..My own bull x was taken enough times to have been fit enough and to have had the knack sussed so she didn't suffer like others did.

here’s a pic of a munty buck if you can make it out. There like rabbits round by us. As I have thermal I can easily go out for 4 hours lamping and spot 5,6,7. Like people say they do mainly stick to the edges and dikes but they often venture out aswel. They are tough little fuckers for there size but for me if a dog had one out in the field they shouldn’t really get away unless close to cover as they will just put there heads down and smash whatever’s in there way. I’m sure they would try and go through a brick wall if that was what was in front of them, I find them quite thick to be honest. You’ll get a lot closer to one than what you will a roe or fallow anyway.

They were a bit wasted on the lamp, daytime hunting them with little dogs and a runner is the sport of kings, some of the most fun I’ve had in the uk, along with bushing boar, but that’s another story!

Yes mate, much preferred to hunt them daytime, busher and runner or as long as your Lurcher  keen enough you don’t really need a busher to nock them up as they will sit tight, like you say a bit wasted on the lamp for a bigger dog.
