The Other Kansas Hunting Dogs



Wes and I came across this interesting rig and motley pack of hounds at a gas station in the dark hours before legal shooting time.  I've seen vehicles like this on country roads a few times here and there.  From what I can gather when the driver spots a yote' he pulls a rope or chain run to the cab via a pulley system.  This releases the door and the dogs charge into action.  The greyhounds are the chase dogs that close the distance and surround the coyote, and the wolfhounds move in for the kill.

Steve Bodio has some good accounts of such hunts in New Mexico in his book "Querencia".

I've been checking out his blog and he seems to be into some really wild stuff...thanks for the note.

Running yotes with hounds would be pretty cool!
