The "crew" Belle, Whitey, Zap, Moss, Finn, and new comer Leaf.

Our Kuris, (photo taken by my daughter age 6), will post some of my favorite photos here of hunting with the dogs in the future.

I have 2 experienced dogs (Whitey and Finn here) and best to start bringing a pup (Leaf) through once your main dog is getting to 6-7 yrs old, especially if working bailing dogs, your pup/young dog isn't going to start hitting its straps until 2-3 yrs of age (and that's hunting every day).

Yep, but hunters have been using working dogs for decades, look back into the NZ cullers web site, you'll see working dogs on the JOB back in to at least the 60s, well before this lastest fad.

heres Sam my 1st hunting dog, a old school/thick set long haired collie, was the family pet until I dragged him into the hills as a 16-17 yr old, he would accompany me on 7-10 day walk abouts in the ruahines and then again when I got a job shooting on Mt Taranaki in the mid 90s


Sambo at the "bivy" on the Ouri, Mt Taranaki


NW ruahines 89/90, not a great deer dog, but we shot a few all the same.


once I got a job shooting he made a good honest bailer, here with his first solo find and bail near the Kaupokonui strm, Mt Taranaki (he learnt at the ripe old age of 7, a natural) and helped me train Jill


Loved to chase a pig or 2, even got the odd one, here with Jill

NICE ONE SAMBO  Smiley, a pole pissa to the end

Trusty do you have many more photos of dogs from your old mans era? Would love to see a kuri crusing through Kiwi Saddle or Manson area.

Cheers Dan

I think there was only ever one hunter that used a dog on the block during the era that Dad shot the kawekas, never made much mention of it, he did comment on a collie that Joe Keeley was using on another block that was good.

Sam and Jill, Mt Taranaki 1996/7, the Stoney below cataract stream

A handful of goats shot in the easy country, most were found in the leatherwood, bluffs or supplejack and kiekie swamps.

Cheers.

The odd hound appears in Tararua Hunters photos but you're right not so many.

All sorts around now, ran into a monster near Otumore.  Staf x Lab from memory.  Must of been 50 plus kilo. Good buggers with the dog too.
