Bobcats

hey guys. been a looong time since i posted. im living in north central colorado now, but still get on this forum often because PA is where Im from and the country I love. Im fixing to get a mt cur or two here in the near future to run on cats here in the mountains. Im looking to see if any of you have any info on running these dogs and cats and the occasional coon. I have run coons and rabbits over hounds a lot back east, but cats will be a new thing to me. any advice, tips, tricks, or special considerations to take into account? your help is appreciated.

Re: Bobcats

There are some big game Kemmer's out west used on cats but if it was me, I'd be looking for a hound from someone out there that is a successful cat hunter.

Re: Bobcats

Out there where you are at is where to look, like CasB said. Used to be a guy that posted on cur sites with Kemmers that went back to a dog named Frey's Nevada Stryker. He hunted his dog on cats- bobcats and mountain lion. They could cold trail and were very impressive. If you can find a Stryker bred Kemmer that is where I would look for a cur. He also used his dogs on 'yotes. He went by the screen name Maverick. Don't know if he still has dogs or is around.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: Bobcats

Just checked do a search for Frey's Nevada Striker or Stryker not to sure of the spelling or if it is Frey's or Freyes. Lots of stuff out there on him. Here is a link that has some pictures of Striker breed kemmers.

Re: Bobcats

Right on. i will look into that, thanks. Im not really interested in conventional trail hound breeds, because I do like to hunt a number of different critters, and curs seem more versatile.

Re: Bobcats

You should check out the Cameron line of blueticks, excellent big game hounds.......a lot of guys out west, and in the northeast run them on bear, and cats.........and a lot of guys here in the east hunt them on coon, they are a very versatile bluetick line....

Re: Bobcats

Sure. If you look around there are striker bred curs out there. I believe stiker was out of Kemmers Gold Nugget and Blondie lv. Not sure of the female but the female was heavy in Gold Nugget. That links tells of his breeding. So if you can't get one that is striker bred maybe a heavy breed Gold Nugget will do you good. I think there is a site called kemmer haters which is all about kemmers. You could register there and see what you can learn and maybe get some leads. Some of them sure look like awsome dogs. Maverick used to post some awsome pictures on squirrel dog central years ago.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: Bobcats

thanks huntsmen. i have been doing a lot of research on the topic, but theres a lot to wade through. like i say, id like to run cats primarily, but occasionally pinch hit on coons here, and maybe squirrels whenever im back east. curs, from what i understand, seem to be versatile enough to do that. if im wrong, feel free to correct me.
