no no, dont get me wrong, i was just curious on how you tell four dogs to attack a wild boar or pig or whatever it is, and not have them take it by the throat and kill it? just well trained or something? ive never been hunting, or know nothing about it, quite ignorant on the subject lol (i live in southern californaia) ;P

The dogs are not attacking the hog, they are catching and holding it...something they have been bred to do for generations upon generations. It is instinctual for them to grab ceratin areas of a hog and hold it until the hunter arrives. If you notice in the pic, there are barely any marks on the hog....if these dogs were attack dogs, the hog would have been shredded.

If you want a good story book on hog catching, look up Lem Miller's American Bulldog Stories, Facts and Legends book.

To the OP..Great pics, thanks for sharing them! Beautiful Dogo!

carrie is right,the hog has minimal damage! a good catchdog hits a spot and holds it.we hunt close to medium range dogs so its only a few minites till we get to the hog after its caught.that also helps keep the damage on the hog and dogs to a minimum.im glad everybody enjoyed seeing working dogs ,i know i sure enjoy working them...rs

WOW...big ass hog! :shock:

Where do you go hog catching at? Is it close to Tampa or do you travel to other places? I never realized how big they are...and how close to home they are...kind a scary. LOL!I have never seen a wild boar but know plenty of people who have and have seen the distruction they cause...but I always thought they were smaller. Dont know why but I was not expecting them to be 200+!!

I saw that nice aligator tail cooking on your stove...I love that stuff! Its so sweet that you can cook your own! Home made is always better!
