It’s amazing we don’t have many hog dog hunters on here. When I was into it I lived for it . Moving and getting away from old hunting friends took me away from it but I sure do miss it . Here’s a few old pictures from back in the day . I was going through a old photo album from back in the day when we actually had pictures developed reminiscing and thought about sharing a few .

There’s some in here they just hanging out in the shadows. I was the same as you. I hunted every weekend and any night during the week up until my girlfriend had a stroke back in 2016. Since then I’ve been twice and to be honest I miss it but don’t care if I ever go back. I swapped a dog box with dogs for an AR topped with a thermal. This was my first victim with the gun and stalking across a wide open field to within 40 yds in one heck of an adrenaline rush

Man, I used to be into it purty heavy...Had a good brindle catch dog named Tank.

The bunch I hung with were catch and release types. Did it purely for the chase, catch, and tie.

Kept a staple gun, purple stuff, and nitrofurazone in the tool box to patch up dogs, hogs, and us.. 😂

Looking back, we should have killed a lot more than we turned loose...

It was great fun, but I done got too old for it now...

Same for the crew I hunted with railroader , we hardly ever killed one unless someone wanted one to eat or to mount . I’ve got a couple of them ugly things mounted .

My bulldog Tank may have weighed 40#. He was a house pet and the wife at the time made me put a cut vest on him to catch pigs.

Tank learned that the vest meant bizness, and got fired up when he saw it. Once, a big ol sow got loose from all of us except Tank, and she carried him bout a quarter mile cross a clearcut hanging off the side of her head...:LOL:

He came back with a tired, "I'm sorry" look on his face...
 
I was deep into hog dogs back in the late '80's early '90's. We lost our club and didn't really have a good place to hunt. Also now, at 50 y/o and living in a subdivision (as opposed to a 220 acre farm) I just don't have the energy or ability to have a bunch of dogs. The 1 dog I have is nearly too much sometimes.

Most people who hunt with dogs dont post online because they dont want a bunch of idiots chirping at them for their dogs running onto posted property.

Ironically, the same people who complain about people hunting hogs with dogs are the same people who complain about the hog population being too high and dont want anyone on their land. lol
