Here’s a question for you ........

Recommended Posts

If you were a man, mid thirties, fairly obsessed with Lurchers and their various forms of hunting, and you were potentially have the opportunity of some time and some money, due to having an early midlife crises and selling your buisness etc

Where would you go for a great hunting holiday / Experiance? 
 

Im leaning toward the states. I’d love to see some coyotes run, lamp some coins, dig a few bits, hunt some pigs etc and would really like to go see the big Loomis coyote dog sale if it’s still on ......

Be honest with ya mate i think you could travel the world and you wont find exactly what the uk has to offer. You know yourself people from all over come here to hunt. Why ? Because for a small island she jam packed with gear with plenty enough dogs to take it if there owners are willing to push out and tread the unknown.

sounds great, them stags that hunt yotes in states  are great dogs, i used like Dan Edwards  posts on here with posts and pics . his line of stags go back over 100 years, mainly deerhoundx greys with drop of bulldog= apbt in the the genes , nothing  like our deehoundxs over here. hope you do it mate, and if you ever got one of his line of dogs , he trained his pups on foxes lol be great love to see one in the flesh+ work, some males hit 100lb  run all day and still kill 35 lb yote.

How about Australia? A good variety of game and fishing too. There or the states there'd be plenty to do and no worries about it coming on top either.

New Zealand for me, oz would be nice but to many things to kill you over there, 😂

Yeah I'd love to live,hunt in NZ, plenty of rabbits and you could hunt all year without snakes killing your dogs.They do have Wetters,giant crickets the size of Jack Russells(not quite) I'd rather deal with an angry buffalo than one of those b*****ds 😬.

Depends where you can find the opportunities. If you can get the right leads then the states without doubt imo. Getting a black bear bayed up on the ground or a lion in a tree, approaching that out of breath and with aching muscles must be absolutely exhilarating! Then you have the staghounds running coyotes and barn hunting coons with terriers. Hog dogging in the South. Heaps of quite special dog work and that's without even considering gundogs.

Scandi or Eastern Europe might be worth a look, they do a lot of interesting stuff. Mostly involves guns though from what I have seen.

Pig hunting in NZ is good but other than deer dogs for rifle hunting that's really all they do dog wise.
