I "cut my teeth" on coon and bear hounds in the early 80's, as I got older I got into Beagles, then for a brief time had no dogs. In 1998 I read about "Coyote Decoy Dogs". Being that I had called coyotes since I was a kid, I thought the whole idea very interesting "call coyotes, and use a dog????" In '98 I got a blue heeler, I took him calling 3 or 4 days a week for 2 years, before "we" got it figured out. I had no money and not much sense, but I did know one thing, "dogs in general". No shock collars, no tracking collars, just hunt, hunt, hunt. I retired that dog last year with over 400 coyotes decoyed. He has since passed on but will be remembered in my heart forever. I decided a few years ago that I was, "going to breed the best decoy dog that I could". I like the curs and really like the catahoulas. I have two catahoula studs.
The short story is after some trial and error, I have a cross that after four generations consistently produces, grit, nose, and brains. But just as important are people friendly dogs. My dogs are all over the country, doing anything from working cattle to blood trailing deer, hunting coons or just plain pets. But most are hunting coyotes and loving it. I will continue the line I have now until the loss of a dog causes me to make a change. If you want a dog that gets it done, contact me. I sell pups at weaning and also started dogs. I don't ever sell a "finished dog", because in my mind a dog is never "finished". Check out our photo section for pictures of the dogs in action.
