If the books open at 7 a.m., do you know what time the baying starts? And what is the difference between the Pro and Am divisions for the One Dog?

You know I have looked everywhere and can't find a start time...guess I`ll email the folks putting it on and see if I can't get an answer for that! lol

The Pro & AM divisions are to make it fair for people who don't have well polished competition dogs. First timers or dogs that are still learning and have not won or placed at Uncle Earls or other judged bay comps.

I spoke with Kelley about the comp. time, they are wanting to start the calcutta 8:a.m. when they finish there the bay will start. Time depends on number of dogs entered.

Pro> If you have ever won an open money bay with 25 dogs entered.

IF you go and you have ANY questions about ANYTHING, judging, safety equipment, the hogs, WHATEVER....ask anyone there where to find Kelley and they will point her out and she will be more than happy to help you.

This competition will consist of a lot of serious handlers & well polished dogs. This is a warm up for Uncle Earls. If you have not ever been to a Bay competition and are thinking of starting into that field with your Lacy then this would be a good one to go and watch. It is open to all breeds of hog dogs. The amateur division gives newer competitors the chance to learn and gain experience.

I may attend simply because I've not been to a bay event for a very long time (3 years!) and need to place a pit bull female pup to a working home. If interested, contact me. She's housebroken, excellent with kids/people/dogs, pretty good in the house. She needs work on leash manners and jumping (won't do it to me but will to other people). Has the lean and rangy build (excellent for hog catching). Is not registered and up to date on shots except rabies (wife refuses to allow me to get her the rabies because she belonged to a friend who abandonded her at our place after he found out the town he moved to has a pit bull ban and didn't tell us!). The pup is a rednose and looks somewhat like Rachael Ray's pit bull Isaboo except she doesn't have so much white.

I may bring along my lacy, Moonshine.

She is a good looking pit!

Hope you get the chance to go to the Bay Comp. It should be fun & educational.

Thank you. I've been to bay pen events before but am finding out that dogs who work in bay pens usually aren't recommended for working in the woods because they are scored on how close they bay the hog and with that being said, supposedly they get cut up and killed faster if they bay too close in the woods. I know several people who run bay pen dogs only in the pen contests and woods dogs in the woods only and very few dogs can do both. Also was told that a bay pen dog gets in the habit of not using the nose in the woods. That kind of makes sense in a way. Any bay pen dogs do well in the woods? I was starting to get out of bay pen comps to the woods thing when I had to move to KS....oh well.

So who all is planning on going to this bay? It sounds like we might have a lot of folks, which would make it a fun excuse to socialize too!

Since Sulphur Springs is a long drive and the start time is pretty early, I'd need to come up Friday night after work and stay in a hotel. It would be fun to all stay in the same place if we have lots of people driving in. Anyone know their plans yet? Mis, are there are any recommendations on lodging?

Ted, so ironic you posted this, because this afternoon we're putting up a blog that addresses the difference between pen and woods dogs. I'll come put up the link when it's up.

Mis, or anyone else, let me know if you decide to get a room at one of those hotels.

Ted, here is the article: http://workinglacys.wordpress.com/2009/ ... e-hog-dog/. It is a great primer on the difference between woods and pen dogs.

I'm thinking about renting a campsite at a state park. Cheaper that way. I'm not gonna spend $60-80 bucks for 1 night at a hotel. They also do group camping..$42 split several ways is cheaper. I think single person camping is maybe $10? I'm gonna check. My brother works at the Tyler State Park. There's another one at Lake Tawakoni that's an hour away or so.

Ted, has the pit ever been on hogs? DJ's been talking about getting another one, but I've been resisting so far. He says that he will semi-retire our pit Shelly if we get another one. Also, is she spayed?

Who all is planning on attending? DJ and I are thinking about it. We would be bringing Sunny & Piper to compete and we'd be open to tent camping.

I'm living in Wichita, KS, and they have rather severe laws against hog hunting. They do not want people to start hog hunting as a hunting thing. They are allowing only landowners who register their lands as "hog infested" to get rid of the hogs on their land ONLY and they have to apply for a permit! On their own LAND! Used to be you had to get handwritten note from landowner then go apply for a permit for that land only...now they have changed the laws to only landowners. Problem with this is: we have feral hogs here but the morons running the hunting divisions have decided that it is illegal to hunt them and want to take care of the problem themselves. That is not the right solution because hogs breed like rabbits and KS is a huge agriculture state. They claimed to have machine gunned 200 hogs from a helicopter at Fort Riley where the military has a base..I highly doubt that happened...most likely they shot maybe a few and the rest scattered then they were embarassed for wasting so much $ on gas they came up with that lie. They didn't mention taking in the bodies and counting them. To answer your question: no the pit hasn't had any hog work experiences. She does like to hang from a huge rope toy that I have so in the past, I used to breed pits for hog hunting..wasn't able to hog hunt at the time and every pup I sold were able to catch hogs and they all did work out on tug ropes. She's not spayed.

My friend was the one who brought her over to my house saying he would be back in 2 weeks then after 2 weeks, I heard nothing from him. Decided to try to contact him. Turned out he changed email addresses, text numbers, etc. The town where he moved to apparently decided not to grandfather in any pits in the city limits if they were recently brought in and the coward decided not to tell me. My wife wants the dog gone because we're over the city limit on dogs plus we're expecting another baby in April. She's actually quite good with my 21 month old son and never nips or bites at people/kids. Loves to play with that tug rope toy though. I gave her Ivomec last month. She's housebroken and knows two commands: sit and stay. She's starting to come to a whistle. Needs to work on two things: jumping (getting much better) and leash pulling espically if there is another dog walking with her then it becomes a tug fest, lol.
