of all these dogs only the curs have a high percentage of good recall off a track.
Interesting. I've always been impressed with Meg's recall compared to most tracking/hunting breeds I've known, but assumed it was just her worried nature that prevents her from going too far.

Having said that, the one creature I have never been able to call her off once she is on the trail is rabbit. Our off-leash time around the neighborhood is pretty much nil most of the summer because of their presence.

I have to agree that in general, I wouldn't go out looking for a hound or other similar breed if you wanted something that would hang around the campsite. Sure, you are going to find exceptions in any breed, but the odds are a lot better in most other breeds.
