Hello redfox18,

    I run grey fox (in addition to hogs, coon, bear and cat) with hounds.  

    I had an uncle who used to run coyote, fox and cat in Oklahoma who said that he couldn't imagine anything more exciting than running coyote.  You might want to check out Hunter's Horn and Red Ranger magazines.

Regards,
RIFLEMAN

I don't too much running these days, but when predators go to ground....they are are all mine with my terriers.

However, I have been seriously thinking about getting a Lurcher specifically for running down Yote.

Yup been running yote hounds for 27 years now. We are getting our biggest snow for the year right now. Round here the big snows causes the yotes to bay up and not run. Dogs stretchum right there. But usually they are very entertaining. You would be suprised where they will run to when pressed.

goatman,

    What do you run coyote with?  Running Walkers? Julys?  Goodmans?  Triggs?

    Whereabouts you live?

I had a coyote decoy dog that was a Kemmer Cur,
I'M going to try to get another one when I go visit a friend in New Mexico.He uses a decoy dog and Grey Hounds, or just the Grey Hounds, he also uses Salukis. talk about an exciting race those Grey Hounds show no mercy when it comes to catching.

Boarrunner; Thats what I'm talking about! For a Predator, use a predator.  Its the funniest thing calling in a Yote who thinks he is coming! And then watching him get run down and smoked by a Lurcher hound or two.

I'd like to here more about the advantages and disadvantages on using the Saluki vs Greyhound.

Rifleman we run mostly running walkers with one july. Only the older ones are capable of handling a yote. I'm from west central IL and the male yotes average around 35lbs. We love to go to the brush with the hounds on foot.Terrierman our hounds take a beaten when it comes bay time.

Nothing gets the blood flowing through my veins faster on a cold morning than a good pack of hounds about 6 feet behind a yote! I got 2 today! Hounds caught one right in the middle of a creek.
