Squirrel Hunters in the Making(Hopefully)

Postby hillbillyfab » Sun Dec 16, 2018 6:59 pm

Been looking for a squirrel dog for my 10 year old to have as a companion and hunting partner. I had a pair of fiest growing up, so this is new territory for me. I've never had a Cur before. Just picked up " Charlie" today. She's a 7 week old Original Mountain Cur. It'll be interesting to see who trains who.ImageImage

Keep that puppy and kid in the woods. I have had cur that tree at 6 months and some that it didn't click till they were nearly 3 years old. Best dog I had was a late bloomer.
Treed 12 yesterday with 2 dogs in 2 hours. Great day.

Great to see. I'm sure they'll both do great.

Had a little time this evening after doing chores so we took a walk through the woods. We came back with one, but several squirrels made it to den trees before we could get a shot off. He was proud(so was I) as he knocked this one down with my little Henry lever action 22LR. The little pup kept up with us stride for stride. I bet both sleep good tonight. Image

Congrats ! That’s what memories are made from!

Good looking pup& A happy young man.

Well done.

I lost one of the best dogs I ever had one Christmas Eve night, he got out of the pen and got hit by a car.

1/2 Fiest & 1/2 Beagle. RIP Brownie

If she is true Original Mountain Cur then all you have to do is keep her in the woods with squirrels, she will do the rest. Good luck they are amazing animals.

The bond between a boy and his hunting dog is just an amazing thing, those two will be inseparable and make tons of memories! Way to go on raising him right and giving him such an awesome opportunity for memories that he will always cherish.

Hit the woods again and had a decent trip. Knocked 3 down between the 2 of us. The little pup is growing and learning. Maybe she'll make a good dog. I believe I had the most fun of all. It's sure hard to beat spending time in the woods with my youngin. I hope he enjoys it as much as I do. ImageImage
