Porky's are tough to work with. You can catch them in a live trap by using apples and other fruits. It is best to try and break em young. Hide the trap and let em wind the porky in the trap and as soon as they commit to going into the scent push the button until they decide to move off of the scent. You may have to go up through the levels of stimulation pretty quick. Whatever you do do not shoot the porky's out where the dogs have any idea of what your doing. If or when they tree them, give em all kinds of heck at the tree, get a switch and loosin their hides good and move em on down the way. They know what they are barking at and this is a good way to teach em they are barking up the wrong tree. There is something about a porcupine that really turns a hound on. I sure wish I could tell you they were easy to break but they are not. Just keep at it. Porky's will eventually kill a dog. I hate em worse than about anything else. Good luck.

Well, after reading LCK's comment I'm feeling like a real jerk. Last night my dog found a couple porcupines in a tree and I was standing right there just watching him. Having never seen a porcupine I assumed the silouettes were coon so I didn't zap him or do anything. I couldn't understand why he sniffed up the tree but didn't bawl treed. He sat down and looked up and saw them (first time I've ever seen him use his eyes) and gave a few real soft bawls, probably because I was standing there and he likes to "impress" me. So here I am, praising him until I shine up and get one heck of a startle, and then I yell at my dog and I'm sure thoroughly confuse him. We tied him a hundred yards back, out of eye-sight and I shot the porcupine out, thinking "what a breaking opportunity for my other dog at home!"
Every time the dog sniffed the bag with the dead coon I scolded him very loudly. His interest in it waned, but now I realize I made one heck of an idiot move.

does anybody else hunt where theres a ton of porcupines?
do you try to clear them out or just hope for the best when ya cut loose? theres only so much anybody can do but anybody have any ideas other than shooting them when ya can or trapping?
does anybody ever have much luck on trash breaking from them like with one in a live trap?




i couldnt find any other posts really talking much about this but if there already is one just point me in the right direction please.

thanks, jamie
