I've been debating over the past couple of years on whether to get a Feist to use for squirrels. Squirrel hunting is my favorite kind of hunting, second only to whitetails. I took the plunge this year and got a nice female pup. I'll start training her in about a month on basic commands and walking on a lead. By January, I hope to have her fully treeing squirrels on her own. I'm excited to add this new dimension to my hunting. Now to find some new spots...

Squirrel hunting with dogs is the only way to hunt them
I hunt with curs. Good luck and just your pup in the woods and it will be treeing in no time.

Congrats on the new puppy. She's a cute one.

Get her all trained, and maybe we could trade a squirrel hunt for a rabbit hunt!

You will have alot of fun with it. My dad always talked about getting one so i bought him a mountain cur pup two years ago and now he is hooked. It is neat to watch them work i grew up with coonhounds that rely on their nose it was different to watch a dog hunt using it eyes ears and nose. Dad said now he hates to see em hit on the road he said they should all die fallin out of a tree to a good dog.
