Both are outstanding squirrel and coon dogs.
Sure you once in a while run into a daytime coon, but that's not a problem.
After taking the coon, they will go right back to squirrel hunting.
Take them out after dark and look out Mr. Ringtail.
Both are also outstanding family dogs.
Wouldn't give either of them up for any amount of money.
Do a little research on the OMCBA mountain curs.
They are also very good hog, cat and stock dogs.
Old Yellar was a mountain cur.
Not a Lab as many people think.
Really well bred pups are available for $250-$300.
Give Castlehill Mountain Curs a look see.
Nope, never hunted with a Castlehill Mountain Cur! I've hunted with a lot of dogs in my time, and there is no set breed that is all around best. Two of the best squirrel dogs I've ever hunted with was a Chihuahua, and a Samoyed. The Chihuahua belonged to a friend, and the Samoyed belonged to my dad. I've hunted deer with Beagles. I've hunted squirrels with anything that would tree them, and not wander off to far. I've hunted rabbits with Beagles, and Basset Hounds. I've hunted coon with several different breeds of dogs. I've hunted ducks, quail, and just about anything you can hunt with a dog! I have also spent my fare share of time out in the woods looking for dogs that liked to run deer, or anything else, that they could chase clean out of the Parish!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
