Slickie, you ever have an issue with a hound chasing a bunny and after a few minutes just quit? My dog Charley did that yesterday morning several times. She has no problem picking them up, gets on them hard and just stops. However, as the day progresses, around 11:00 am, she seems to get her act together and will hold a bunny for over 30 minutes. She did this the last 2 times I had her out, frustrating as hell. 2 Saturdays ago she started a bunny at 10:50, chased it hard for an hour and I got it on the 4th loop just after 12. The weather wasn't the best yesterday, one of the windiest days I have ever bunny hunted. I think I just need to get her out as much as possible.Sounds like you had lots of fun.
I took the hounds out yesterday for a run, we didn't shoot any but the pup, nori, picked up the first bunny and stayed on long enough for tony to get 2 shots off. We called it a day around 1pm as i had plans in the evening.
Looking forward to the mid week hunt
