i have a chance to pick up two lion hounds one is a walker the male is a black and tan.
i have always wanted hounds but don't really know that much about hunting with hounds.
my wife said I'd have to clean up after them and the daughter said flat out no.
two hounds for a battle with the women in my life. what do you think is it worth the fight?
Tammy said they can't be in the house but i told her yes they can one on each side of my recliner. autumn said no they slobber i told her I'd let them in her room to wake her in the mornings. then she said no dog hair on her clothes so i guess i can stop buying her clothes then they wont get dog hair on them.
the owner had a heart attack he use to outfit for lions and can't now. i can't pick them up tell the walkers pups are weened.
what do you guys think? the wife doesn't give me any anyhow and autumn will do whatever i tell her no about this would get me even.

First thing you need 2 tracking collars and a tracker!! if you plan on hunting them. You wil spend more time looking for them then hunting if you dont!!

Hounds IMO are not house dogs. And YES on the tracker if I could only have one piece of equiptment it would be a tracker. My girls love my hounds and my Lab so I got it good. Hound hunting is the most fun you will have ever IMO. If you can get em for the right price I'd do it. Hound hunting isn't a pastime it is a lifestyle thyey require a lot of your time to get em good and keep em there.

wow just went over and looked at the male. if he ever hunted he hasn't for a while he is fat. the people were not out of bed so i didn't get a look at the female.
I'll do more checking them out before i agree to take them.
the females puppies are only 4 days old so i got time to think it out.
the male seemed better behaved than i expected he didn't bark and a three yr old boy with no cloths on was able to handle him on a leash.
wow i don't know how people live with that many dogs they raise Chesapeake's, poodles and some other little dog. like 10 dogs in their trailer house. i don't think i could go in the house without gaging.
i know those dogs need a new home and better living conditions i may take them just to give them that. the little boy needs that too. i was totally disgusted.
i use to raise Samoyed's and had 5 adults they never had to live in squaller like that. it was a chore they all had to be brushed daily and you can full a 55 gallon barrel with hair every time. it was a lot of work but they sure turned heads they are the prettiest dog out there. all the chicks dig them. i could go into a store and when i came out there would be girls flocked around my truck. didn't do me any good though i was married. my male was well known around Cheyenne everyone knew him as he rode in the truck all the time and when parked he sat on top of the cab. the weather lady even came and did a weather forecast on the news with him.
do black and tans look fat normally i was surprised to see a three year old dog that looked ten? i don't think these dogs have been exercised properly as of lately the people who have them right now i know have never hunted them and i think they have had them for over a year it was a year and three months ago when rob had his heart attack so these jokers have had them that long.

I own hounds in montana and i love it. but like others have posted it is a lot of work and it does take away from other hunting. during elk season i do not hunt as much as i used to cause i'm tuning the dogs up for the upcoming cat season. but if those dogs can tree their own lion and you want to put time in with them, i'd say go for it.

The fat can be fixed easily, if they do what their suppose to and they handel well they should be nice to hunt behind.
It may be as easy as cutting food back. When does your cat season start?

we have a kill quota here on muddy mountain it is 28 lions and a year round season. the quota never gets filled.
other areas in the state the season runs 1st Sept threw march 15th.
i got a better look at them today the male isn't as fat as i thought maybe 10 lbs over the female looks better they call her a walker but she is black and tan with the build of a walker i think she is a cross breed. she looks much better then i thought she would with new puppies. i expected her to be a little over weight but she is slim and has a good build she is smaller than the male.
i really think both need a better dog food is there only problem i saw a bag of old Roy dog food. if they would get some higher quality food their coats would look better.
they would also crap less and generally feel better.
i was impressed as to how well they behaved, sit stay and heal were second nature to them and even with all the other dogs barking and raising cain they never made a sound.
the bad news is my wife is fighting me on them.

C- get the dogs build them a real nice house, one that is big enuogh for you all your stuff lol. If you really want the dogs then go for it. Maybe you should pull the heart strings bit and do it as a favor to the dogs. Simply put we all have things we want to try. For you running hounds is one. You will never have a better chance to get started. 2 good odgs for free? Heck at the very least you could shape them up and sell em...

I would go out and try it first for a year or 2 and see if it is really what you want to do. I am sure there are other guys in your areas that runs dogs and see if you could ride along with them? Hounds in town, not trying to change your mind, but I don`t think that is the best idea.
