Mis wrote another great article on how to start a hog dog: http://workinglacys.wordpress.com/2009/ ... -training/. It is primarily geared towards pups, but has information for introducing grown dogs to pigs as well. Regardless of their age, it is great to see a Lacy key off for the first time.

How do you start your dogs of hogs? Any other tips or important things to remember?

Hey remember when she wrote that
I also remember the first time I put her in the pen with pups and pigs and her camera
talk about funny :))

I will tell you this the sooner you show them a pig the better and it is cool to see a 6 to 7 week old puppy bay a piglet . Have to have Mis show me how to put pictures on here and Ill show you puppies on pigs ;)

Your favorite red-neck

I got some bad news the other day. The rancher next to us killed a hog, dont know the size, on the place next to him. So, they are on the way to my place.

I need to send my dogs to a spa retreat at the Brooks house so that they will know how to treat the suckers when they get here. I also am going to start doing some target practice. I'm pretty good at a still target, but havent worked on moving ones. Guess that I had better get at it!!

It is sure going to make a difference in whether I remember to take a gun with me when we go walking. During the winter, I dont always carry a gun, but guess that it will become regular dress when the hogs get here.

Danged old Hogs..they are everywhere!!

The "Brook's Spa" is always open to you Mrs. Betty ;)
Lucy has shown us though that she knows what to do with a hog
so I don't worry too much about you out there on your walks but a refresher course
never hurt anyone !

You will be surprised how still they stand when they are being bayed tight. They just kinda sway side to side until that little Ruger goes "POP", then their knees get real stiff and they flop over like there is a lead ball rolling around in their cranium :)

Don't forget to freeze them for a week or two before feeding them to the dogs.

Betty, after seeing Larry on the trap line, I don't think you'll have any trouble training him on hogs. I'm sure he and Lucy will keep you plenty safe.

Speaking of hogs in new places... Steve and I were driving down MoPac in the middle of downtown Austin on Saturday. We were about a mile from Town Lake, maybe 1.5 miles from 6th Street, well within the city limits. And there, hit on the side of MoPac, was a hog :-o I couldn't believe it! It won't be long before they are rooting at the capitol building. And Sadie will be more than happy to help out :))

I left the house yesterday and was getting on the highway and there were 3 small hogs on the side of the road in some property. Less than 3 or 4 miles from our residential neighborhood.

Yep, people down in Round Rock dont like the deer messing up their yards, their really not going to like what the hogs do to it. My sister's house has a creek in the back yard. There are the houses that are across the street, then there is a HUGE ranch behind that. She has more deer in her yard than I have ever seen out here. Some of the people that live in that neighborhood feed the deer, the others hate them for what they do to the landscaping. I think Donny told me that he saw a sow and piglets in Liberty Hill. It wont be long until the city folk hate the pigs as much as farmers and ranchers do.

Thanks for describing how the pigs do, Steve. I have a good picture in my head now!!

Julie,

I lived in Austin for over 20 years before I was driven out by high cost of living but want to move to Central Texas someday. Anyway I know there is an old mountain lion that roams the Lake Travis area because it's overrun with deer. One time on NYE, I was exiting Mopac and getting on 183 (before they built the new 183) and had to stop and run out and grab a WHITE rabbit that was sitting in the middle of the exit!!!! :)) My friends and I were unsure if we had drunk too much champagne!!!! That rabbit went to a friend who kept rabbits so he wasn't eaten or anything like that.
