Terrier work in the USA - Photos and Stories.


Recommended Posts

I would like to tell the story of the two young brothers I posted earlier in the season.

About 3 or 4 years ago I realized I was breeding myself in a corner.I called up a man I had dug with 10 years earlier.I knew he had terriers similar bred to mine.I asked him to keep me in mind if he had something  available. A couple months later he called me and asked if I wanted a niece to my old stud dog.This was an older tested bitch.I was thrilled.It was a 2000 mile round-trip journey to get her.No money was discussed.All the man asked me was to work the pups.I bred this bitch to produce these two young dogs.

The little one has been used on coon in places where the digging is slow but he has done well.

The bigger black one has been used for larger quarry and has shown well.

The man who gifted me the bitch was named Mike.He passed away in April and didn't get to see these terriers work.Rest in peace Mike.You were a true dogman.I will never forget your kindness.

I had an interesting adventure today but struggled with pictures.I took my boat to a river where the quarry is very educated.Got the boat anchored and started walking through a swamp.I seen an otter swimming with a fish in its mouth at the other end of the swamp.Finally made it there.Otter bolts and goes deeper in the swamp instead of going towards the river as is normal.

I started to walk around a beaver pond hoping the terrier could pick up the scent.

Terrier entered under a tree.Otter bolted.At this point i lost his bubble trail.I circled the swamp trying to relocate him but no luck.I began the long walk back to the boat.As I got near the boat I seen ripples.It was the otter circling my boat with his tail raised.😄

He had been at the boat waiting on me.As I watched him leave I began to smell a horrible smell.From what I could tell this little b*****d marked his scent under the bow of my boat.According to Otter law He now owns my boat and I'm his girlfriend.😢

I dont often take the time to explain the importance of terrierwork in the swamps.There is a large swamp a few counties over from me that is a sanctuary for some endangered  cranes. The game wardens only allow me to coon hunt it in February  as they say I will disturb the cranes mating rituals.🤨

I went to this swamp a couple days ago.

Found remains of a crane and dug a coon.The coons are so thick in this swamp they are starving and eating the cranes that the government  is supposedly  protecting.Without a few of us coonhunters it would be even worse.

I'm always surprised by how little wildlife biologists  actually  understand  about varmints.Right now ,Biologists are studying  otters in a park in Alaska.These otters continually attack dogs and people.The otters drug a full grown husky in a pond.The otters also stole a child's bike while the little boy was riding it.The biologists say they don't understand. I understand  it.Ive had dogs getting attacked by otters for the past ten years.Biologists are just now realizing  that otters exhibit this behavior.I figure someone will die in America from an otter attack in next 5 years.Have a search for otter attacks on the web.It makes me laugh but I might have a twisted sense of humor.

 

 

 

To close yes all vermin need controlling.

That’s some going as huskies are  pretty strong dogs well ones I’ve encountered are .

The news said it was 4 otters and the husky weighed 50 pounds.

I have personally seen a 15 pound otter drag a 40 pound grass carp through the swamp.They have superhuman strength for their size as they swim all day.Their only weakness is their blind courage.

That doesn't surprise, I saw a clip where otters killed a pretty big caiman in the water. Only thing I can relate to them is a ferret, 10 times the size which would take some killing.
