I have Plott hounds and a Walker. Question is, do any of you other Houndman run your dogs in this deep snow? The area I hunt now has over 3 foot of snow and more to come. Any concerns with this and the safety of the dogs.
Snowshoes are made for deep snow...they work pretty well. I ran beagles in it on Wednesday and altho we did not get a run(no Rabbits out) they did hunt hard for 3 hours. I do not coon hunt in it, coons do not like it either. If they did I would definitely run in it.
We ran last Saturday after the first storm and then this Saturday with another foot of snow about 3 foot total in the woods. The dogs did well in it can't say that about the humans we had a tough time.
