I know this is really going to sound dumb, but, I have been reading your posts about stags. I am curious, are they greyhounds crossed with wolfhounds or are they a cross with an airdale or just a breed of their own?
I honestly had never heard that term before. sheCat

Ma'am she cat,
there is nothing dumb about your queston.I just figured that with so many dog people here then they would be interested in hunting coyotes a different way

Stags are usally greyhound, deerhound or wolfhound crosses. where the stag name comes from I have know clue. When I was introduced to them years ago the gentleman that started me runnin the called them stags. I have also heard them called lurchers. It is quite popular in some parts of New Mexico. Over seas they are called coarsing hounds.

The reason for the greyhound wolf hound cross is the greyhound for speed and the wolfhound for endurance and grit. They are an extremely gentle dog till it comes time for them to work then they are all business. The wolf hound and deer hounds were bred to sight chase and catch their game and that is what you are doin.They are fast in there own right but a little clumsy so ya add a touch of greydog and they Run excellent.

Wolfer,
Could you really? I would love to see how they work and watch them run. When I was checking heifers in the middle of the night I heard them howling night before last. So they should be moving back in on the creek bottom. sheCat
