You put twenty dogs on a bear or hog and your greatly decreasing the chances of catching it. All your gonna do is push the animal harder it knows it can't take them whereas you put out half a dozen or even less, the animal might think it has a chance and is more likely to hold its ground and bay or tree. I always caught more hogs with only two or three dogs on the ground at a time.

I think the day in East Tenn is fastly approaching where folks are going to have to start changing their habits as it pertains to putting out their garbage, their bird feeders, etc. It is unbelievable how many bears I have had on game cameras for the last 3 years. Funny thing is, I have been running game cameras for a fairly long time and just in the last 3 years my camera sightings have exploded. I hate them. I hope you guys kill them all.

Best way to describe dragging a bear is like pulling several hundred pounds of Velcro or steel wool through the woods! Lol They ain't as slick as they look!

And from the one I helped drag and load, they are cumbersome and when you go to lift it into a truck, it's a lot heavier than it looks.

That's a nice one
