Default Cougar hunting

Speaking of hunting... Has anyone ever done it or know anything about it?

Reason I am asking is because apparently its pretty big in the area of BC I'm moving to. From my searching it sounds like alot of people are using Coon hounds and other big breed of hounds for hunting Cougars.

*Facepalm* I don't know anything about it, but when I read the title I thought you were talking about old lady / young man syndrome. ROFL

I would like no part of it. I have however done several research papers on the topic for my environmental science classes. Why are you wanting to hunt them?

I can look for my papers on the topic. Hunting with dogs is a small part and pretty similar to other huntings. If you're in an area big for large game hunting it's smart to learn about reflective gear and how to avoid snare traps, etc, including illegals.

All I know is its illegal here in AB unless you have a special liscence at a certain time of year. Not sure if it is the same or not in BC. I know someone who has done it. Not something I could ever do. I understand hunting and agree with it, but I couldnt send my dogs after a animal when I know that there is a good chance they whont come back alive. He has lost a few that way.

LOL me too.
Tj is 22 months younger than me, but I don't consider myself a cougar. I offer get called the cradle robber

On the actual topic though, I have seen videos on youtube about cougar hunting. Go check them out. Some a wee bit graphic, but some aren't to terribly bad.
One video is of a man that has 5 blue tick coon hounds hunting a cougar. It was very weird to me, cause I always thought people used big dogs of the non hound variety to hunt them.

There's a line of hounds, I think they're called Logan Walkers? Basically a specialized line of blue ticks that excel at hunting big cats. DrMom knows more about them and I'm sure Pops can fill in most of the blanks as well.

some people try to run one breed packs because they love the breed. people who make their living catching lions use a mix of foxhounds, coonhounds & crosses of the two. of the pure breeds treeing walkers tend to have the best blend of speed, nose & treeing instinct. i have heard of a guy running pure triggs and selecting for treeing. if people are running bobs & lions & need to catch they are more likely to run foxhounds & their crosses. except for certain parts of ID & MT (wolves), the most common causes of dog deaths while running lion are overheating & getting hit by cars when the lion crosses a road. lions will almost never face down the dogs. the ones that will usually go into a hole so they can face them head on one or two at a time. i know of a fella that treed a mature tom lion w/ a pair of jagds.
lots of good lines out there.
