Does anyone else take their dogs hunting when they go traditional? I try to take my catahoula dog, Biscuit, every chance I get. He's hell on hogs...(and cow's.......). I just love having the company and he more than earns his meals on hunts.

I have done it with modern guns on rabbits but never occured to me with the flintlock.

My Beagle Dolly is hell on rabbits.



She loves to squirrel hunt too.

I had a yellow lab, seventh generation pointing lab, who was the most rabid bird dog I EVER shot over. We used to get four or five of us together to spend a day out shooting partridges with our trade guns, fowlers and even muskets, and Shunka would hunt all day long, and be disappointed when it was time to make camp.

I like to hunt grouse here in Maine and have been priveleged to hunt with two English Setters. Bess was my first and she was my partner for some thirteen years. She hated reenactors, but would shake with excitement whenever I pulled out my club butt or double barreled Gilgun. My first day out, my friends were making fun of my flinter. Bess pointed a bird, up it went, BANG, down it came. Bess headed off and fetched it up and brought it to my hand. I was showing the young bird off when Bess came back with the second bird that I got with that one shot. If it wern't for old Bess I never would have known I got that second bird. In the subsequent years Bess would find many a bird I would have lost. Tessie has been my new partner for the last three seasons and has been an even better grouse dog. Tess will not wear her 18th century collar though. My only probem is that in the 18th century my persona would not have been out hunting grouse and certainly not with such fine dogs. Dogs are my favorite people! Pictures to come. Paul

Red squirrel, Thank you for your kind remark, new chapters are written everyday. Tess went on point the day after my last post and up went four grouse. I was left with an open mouth and a shouldered club butt on half cock. Good thing those birds don't have guns or I'd be hanging from a tree somewhere. Good hunting to all. Paul

One of my dream hunts would be taking a few good dogs and hunting for black bear like Meshach Browning did. But hunting bear with dogs these days, may be considered "uncivilized".
;) :)
I plan on hunting coyotes this winter and spring in kit. Wanting to boost the deer population.

I love hunting with Dogs, be it rabbits and pheasants around home, or when I hunted wild boar in tennessee. I've had Dogs my whole life and I'll have one till I'm dead.

Dogs have been my best friends.

I never tried hunting squirrels with a Dog but would sure like to.

Once as a youth I hunted rabbits with my brothers beagle. I didnt see any, but shot 3 squirrels. That dog would bark up any tree with a squirrel in it, and I would wait for it to come around on my side to shoot it.

It was almost like I ordered rabbit, but the dog ordered squirrel.

;) :)

I love hunting with dogs. Everytime I shoot a bird the dog will be the one to get it where it fall and bring it to me afterwards.

I hunt birds behind my drathaar from Sept. 1st. until the end of March. Blue Grouse in the mountains, Sage Grouse,pheasant,Huns and Sharptail in the prairies, Chukkar in the foot hills. Nothing better then hunting behind a good pointing dog. Hunt alot in my kit. Use a fusil or a original double bbl. percussion. Got doubles this year with it on pheasants, sharptail and huns.

I bought a dvd by Outdoor Our Way called Squirrel Hunting with Original Mountain Curs. It's an excellent dvd. They use 22 rimfires but besides that it's worth the money.
