    I was a houndsman for many years. Loved that sh*t!
    i was mentored by a terrific hunter. I chose bluetick cross.
    Great times. My advice take it or leave it is to be aware of choosing a quiet dog. If a cat or bear is gonna turn on your dog it will turn quicker on a quiet dog. If you choose a quiet dog be sure you fit him or her with a noisy bell on their collar before you cut it loose. It also helps you find your dog when things aren’t going well. It confuses the quarry and keeps them looking for a tree.
    A properly trained hound also makes an amazing family pet. Trust me.
    Best of luck!

    sorry one more piece of advice. Because a dogs breed states it’s a hunting dog, not all are created equal on the track. I strongly recommend buying fro a line of active hunters (parents /grandparents). It really makes a difference training and in the field.

    I am seriously toying with the Idea getting (importing from Germany) another purebred "German Hunting Terrier" (Deutscher Jagdterrier). Had 4 over a span of almost 40 years. Most versatile hunting Dogs I ever knew and also excellent Watchdogs. Small and Lightweight means easily transported even in small Aircraft also means considerable less Dog food and Dog%$*(&. Absolutely no Fear tracking anything including any Bear and Cat but also Antlered/horned Game.

    The negative is there are very few Breeders in North America therefore importing from Germany/Austria/Hungry where the are plentiful is likely the only option.

    Would also make an excellent companion/protector for Wilderness Hikers in Bear Country.

    Cheers

    Agreed. Wonderful dogs.
    My biggest heart ache from my chasing days was losing my hounds. The bigger breeds have a shorter lifespan. Not to sound like a wimp but I still mourn for some of them. The character and humour in a hounds soul is gripping.

    Biggest disappointment was buying hounds not from hunting lineage. Way more work and more frustration in the field. However I wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything!!

    For many years there was a German fella running those terriers in revelstoke. Worth looking into!! He had 2 complaints with those dogs (but tons of success)
    the little guys had a tough time in certain deep snow and no tongues. (Noise)

    No..still mouths are meat dogs.....it is a whole different style of hunting.
    I had a good open mouthed dog that would clam up when it was needed...he had brains.
    Quite dog generally mean shorter chase.
    Fool me once..your fault. Fool me twice my fault.
