In Honor of Jimmy Young

I need to keep this as short as possible, due to a time restraint.

Many comments have been made regarding the crap I stirred up after the Uncle Earl's in 2011.

I have even been accused of attacking Jimmy Young.

But what I did was in honor of Jimmy and duty to the Uncle Earl's family.

The reports have come in that the 2013 event was well done.

Correct me if I am wrong, because I couldn't be there, and so I did not be an eyewitness as I had hoped.

My understanding is: there was an even set of hogs, and the judging was fair.

That was my goal to preserve this sport now and for future generations.

Now....I am not going to mention any names, but I will say this: 3 people were for some time very much involved in controling the outcome of the Uncle Earl's. To be blunt about it: the Uncle Earl's WAS rigged.


Due to the overwhelming duties of staging, producing, organizing, and just plain making it happen it was imperitive that Jimmy deligate responsibilities to volunteers, some of which later became paid employees.

Some of these people were in key positions to load the chutes, and control who got what hog, and thus control who won OR lost.

Until they re-loaded the chutes right in front of me at UE 2011, I had no idea what all was going on.

But they made that critical error, and I am holding accountable.

This is not over.

I have a duty and I claim the right to question everything that goes on in there for 360 days a year.

I will not question the hogs or the judges decisions during the 5 days of the event, but that "sportsmans rule" only applies to the 5 days of the event.

Attack me if you will, I don't care...but beware if you decieve and defraud the Uncle Earl's family, because I got their back.

I have many fond memories of good times and good friends I made at the UE for over 15 years.

Next year we will be back to compete now that it is a fair competition.

How to START a hog dog?

I plan to start writing a lot more in the near future as it seems that a lot of new people are seeking ways to get into hunting hogs.

A question that seems to plague many of the newbies is how to motivate a dog to hunt hogs.

First lets go back to nature: what motivates a dog to hunt in the wild? Hunger!

So I advise you to cut back on the crap you buy to feed your dog especially the day or two before you hunt and get their natural diet into the program.

Feed them raw meat as much as possible, and ALWAYS give them some of the spoils of war: feed them some hog!

Please be advised that I do not recommend feeding raw meat as a sole source.

But 70-80% raw meat is healthy, and table scraps can make up the difference.

I use store bought kibble as a supplement to the raw meat diet when I need to.

Of all the bay pens I have ever visited and competed in this is my favorite.

Also note that there is a sportsman bay at the end of the event where anyone who did not place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd during the weekend can compete no charge for a $500 winner take all baying.

Nice don't ya think?

Uncle Earl's Hog Dog Trial 2013

OK, Catahoulaville, I don't ask for much, for me, but for my dogs, I have to ask because I know we all care for them.

These 2 were born on my property about 2 1/2 years ago, and sold to a hunting club in Gainesville, Florida, in January, 2011 as blood tracking dogs.

Due to a divorce, they need a new(hopefully temporary) home, and I am their only(short term, because the owner wants to keep them) option in this difficult transition for everyone involved.

Can someone from Florida (or Georgia), who is coming to the Uncle Earl's this week,                     (via I-10 @ Lafayette, where I live) assist in a transport?

This is NOT a freebie, and you can name your price, we can supply a crate in Florida and a down payment, and I will pay full price upon delivery to south La..

Anyone need some extra gasoline money to get to Winnfield 2013?

My phone # is: 337 298 2630.

The male comes from Bruce Halls bloodline, and we need to keep him around, don't you think?

I am busy with swamp tours this week, AND Uncle Earl's, and cannot fit a 20 hour round trip into my schedule.

Thank you to the Uncle Earl's family
