    I know folks running Floyd B dogs down from skull and scream. I know others running various lines. Not heavy line breed like the FB dogs. Don't know a lot of folks gonna pay a ton for a high bred dog. CD's have a short life expectancy. Some simply find a cross better suited for the task. To hog hunters bull dogs cost in the 150 to 300 range with good ones going for 500. Bay dogs go for 300 to 3000 depending on dog. Dogs selectively bred for the box have more traits that make them culls in the CD world. It is a fine line to be walked.

    I'm getting into bulldogs for hog hunting too. From what I've been able to research, lots of OFRN breeders seem to be into hogs. Some good videos on YouTube of these dogs working. Ironline is one kennel I can think of and I've seen Iron Mike around on these forums.
     
  7. Thanks I'll look into that.


    I'm all ears.

    Saw a little red nosed gyp that was owned by a Fireman in St. Pete Fl. He hog hunted large ranches on his days off as a side job clearing hogs. She was a wide open dog that had more stitches than Frankenstein. She was retired (before he went broke on vet. bills) and was bred to his Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Those pups were hunting and catching machines. Got to see them in action out on Boot Ranch and some of Starkey's land.

    I used to know a hardcore feral boar hunter in Nor Cal who had both a Colby-bred bulldog and an American Bullmastiff (1/2 APBT, 1/4 Neo and 1/4 Great Dane) sired by the Colby dog, who must have weighed at least 100 lb and was ferocious on the hunt but a big ol' lapdog at home. This fellow owned a deep freeze full of feral pork and had a mystery method of getting the funkiness out of wild boar meat. He used to hunt bear as well before the idiots banned hunting bear with dogs in CA.

  13. The hog dogs are cool, but man it is an easy way to loose one. I have seen a lot of Hammonds crosses used for hog hunting. The boudreaux x Hammonds cross seems to work well. Also seen some really nice dogs off Hammonds Scotch Gator that were real nice working dogs when crossed to some Leblanc blood. I have been interested in getting one of my dogs started on hogs but man oh man, I don't know if I would ever take him hunting on some big 'ol ferrel hogs just be too scarred to loose him :(

    I would hate to loose a dog also but that's part of the game/sport. If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. :)

    ^ yup you are spot on. These hogs do get very big and have nasty cutters razor sharp. I will be looking into this sport in the next few years as I transition from city folk to that country life. Also have to be careful the hogs don't get you as well the dogs.
