yfz-Most often the dogs are carried around in a truck. They are in a "jump box" (similar to hound box) where they can see out the sides, but the doors can be opened from inside the cab to release dogs when a coyote is spotted. Imagine driving down road and you spot a coyote, hit the brakes, release the dogs, and the chase is on. Some they catch, some they dont. You can also hunt them on foot or horseback, and they will wind a coyote, or see one get up, and then they will try to run it down. They will run a hot track, but not everyone likes them to. Alot depends on the terrain you hunt in, for what you like in a runnin dog...ie flat, open country=more speed, hilly/rough ground=more nose and durability, as a general rule.
If you have them on a calling stand, you can have them mill around to keep coyotes focus on them, but you better have a good handle on them, cause once they spot the coyote they will want to go...no matter how far. They can see way better than most dogs. I would down my dog when I spotted a coyote, or thought they had one spotted. If the coyote spots the dog first, and then the dog lays down, the coyotes seem to come in even faster. If the coyote was in a good spot to run, then I let the dogs have a go, if not I pulled the trigger.

Take care.

Thank you sir. That's Gunner coming out of a den. That den was in a crevice in a caliche pit and went down about 9-10 feet, before it turned. The lurcher is "Bullet", 50% Collie, 25% Greyhound, 25% Bulldog. The black pups I showed in one of my episodes are out of him and a greyhound/bulldog cross. I currently have him covering the leggy catahoula/bmc female, Annie, the "Coyote Freak". She's the bloody faced female in the same pics.

If you ever want to talk lurchers or longdogs, just give me a holler sometime. Would love to swap old stories. (575) 390-0048

Thanks...Tony

Reno looks pretty good... What kind of dog is he? You use him to bloodtrail the deer?

He is a 52 pound male McNab. I use him to jump deer on push drives, locate and bay up crippled deer, and trail and mark dead deer. We hunt in some very steep and thick terrain, so a dog is a huge help.

Jeremy. I have only participated out of the jump box trucks that UphillDoc referred to. Can't remember a time when it wasn't a part of life. As a teenager going through my dirt bike phase (another whole story) the old timers would occasionally let us take our bikes along to flush coyotes out of rough country to the divides where the dog wagons could get on them.

I had a pretty bad wreck with a High School Literature teacher over his refusal to sign a grade report that had to come home one Friday to clear me for one of those Dirt Bike/Dog Wagon weekends. My grade was back up but he felt my behavior was sub par. From my point of view all I needed was the grade info. Made a bit of a fool of myself. There may have even been some personal attacks and insults involved. You know the type I am always worried about around here on Predator Masters?

Our legends could see, line out, catch and some even kill a coyote by themselves consistently. But those outstanding dogs were rare over the years. Most often you were breeding, trading, buying, borrowing matching up dogs to get all those skills from a side of three to four dogs to haul and dump together. Then that pack would normally get it done consistently.

But there are also those legendary coyotes out there that could out run all. There is one that lives on the north divide of the Frenchman river right now. I haven't seen him run, but they tell me is unbelievable. Different rigs swing by his territory and give him a try regularly. One good friend had one of his best dogs of 30 plus years blow out a hind leg trying. It will be a sad day when some one does flush him with a full stomach or when he get's some years on him and get's him stretched.
