Terrier work in the USA - Photos and Stories.


Recommended Posts

Coons in Dixie went back up trees a few weeks ago.So I basically  hunt beaver this time of year as they don't welp until April.

I headed to one of my favorite spots.While the terrier was trying to stop a beaver I seen something bolt out the backside.I ran it down and caught it.It was a beaver kit who looked to be a couple weeks old already.I held the little fellow until I could catch the terrier.

After catching the terrier I released  the kit.

I started walking back to the truck.I was feeling warm and fuzzy from holding that tiny furball.Then I stepped on a snake.

Good topic this I’ve enjoyed flicking through it, thanks for sharing your pics and stories. What kind of snake is that? Do you have any venomous in the areas you hunt?

Glad you enjoyed them.That snake was a rat snake.Non poisonous.As far as poisonous  snakes we have copperhead,rattlesnake and cottonmouth.In the swamps that I dig I mostly encounter cottonmouths.I killed these two around January 2020

During the summer the swamps are full of cottonmouths.

Its the time of year to dig groundhog. They are not my main quarry.The little  red one has done good in tiny spots.Screenshot_20220727-120438_Photos.jpg.0161d41f12fad6eab30a1610ec57b037.jpg1234561226_20220725_194003_exported_402.jpg.9666aaf18dcfa8b6df8475248218eaec.jpg

Why don’t you do much to the groundhogs Rick?

Its a combination  of several reasons really.First you need a terrier 12 pounds or smaller.Its usually 100 degrees in my area when you dig groundhog.Poison ivy,chiggers and rattlesnakes are a few more reasons.But if you want to see how tight of a tube a terrier is willing to push through then groundhog is the perfect quarry for this in my opinion.

Can’t comment on groundhog but is surprising we’re a fox will get to. You mostly work to otter?

Anywhere a 10 pound groundhog can fit so can a 10 pound fox in my opinion.

This time of year I begin scouting for signs.I look for persimmons and Muscadines.These are the two main wild  fruit that coons eat.The two most important things I look for is otter shit and venomous  snake population.This time of year otter shit will change from fish scales to crawdad shells and claws.When this happens otters generally leave the creeks and go back to the swamps where there is thousands of crawdads.I found the information I needed this morning.First the good news.All crawdads.Screenshot_20220827-082426_Photos.jpg.ea252e30d87a8eba855afb520f536d05.jpg

Now the bad news lol.
