"dear Board member..Could you tell us what qualifications you and the rest of the board have that would qualify you to properly choose a "Producer". And If you say you were there and did not see hogs being ripped you are a liar. How much money do you get paid or do you make off the event ? who appoints your board? where will your hogs come from and will they be tested for disease and sickness. How much money does the Mayor make from taking pictures? And once again how will you insure the safty of the animals and spectators?"
1. The only qualification I personally have is that I was willing to serve on the board. As for the rest of the board, I can't speak for them. 2. No, I am not a liar. Which day, and how many hogs did you see get "ripped up"? 3. I make no money out of this event. The UEHDT got a small percentage of the gate, which went 100% to the Winn Western Riding club, for improvements on the arena.4. The hogs are provided by the producer, and they are his responsibility. 5.As far as I know the mayor makes no money - but if he does, it comes from the producer. Last year Jimmy Young and Bayed Solid had ALL rights to pictures. 6. The WWRC spends $$ to fix up the arena, including replacing boards in the stands, etc., for the safety of the spectators.
Once again, the dogs are only allowed to "bay" the hogs, not catch them. If you saw hogs "ripped up" as you say, provide proof - pictures, witnesses, etc.
As to "doglover", everything possible is done to protect the animals. You may feel this is heathen entertainment; that is your right. However it is a tradition in this parish. People from all over the US take off a week from their work to come and participate in the event. It brings lots of money into our parish, which has been hit hard in the last few years. Our main industry is logging, and when the construction industry goes down, so does logging.
I am sorry that I didn't respond earlier. I have a life beyond topix. I only came on here because someone told me of the article.
i HAVE FRIENDS IN THE SOUTH - LOUISIANA - BUT I COULD NEVER LIVE IN AN AREA THAT IS SO OBVIOUSLY PRIMITIVE. DO YOU SERIOUSLY THINK THAT GOD IS LOOKING UPON THIS WITHOUT CRYING. GOD MADE ALL THE CREATURES AND HE DID NOT MAKE THEM TO BE TORN APART FOR AMUSEMENT. WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE THINK OF THIS AS AMUSEMENT - THEY WILL ABUSE THEIR CHILDREN, OTHER CHILDREN, OR THEMSELVES. GOOD GOD THE SOUTH SHOULD BE SEPARATED FROM THE NORTH AND THE WEST - WE ARE SO FAR APART. ONE PART OF THE COUNTRY - THE SOUTH - DOES NOT GIVE TO THE OTHER PART ANYTHING WORTHWHILE. LET THOSE THAT ARE LIKE MINDED STAY IN THEIR AREA.

I have visited your state - CA - at least here I can go to bed at night and not worry that gunshots will be fired through my walls/windows and kill me. I can walk outside my home at night and not be mugged or raped. I can breathe fresh, clean air - no smog. You are right - we are far apart - why don't you buy your oil and gas from somewhere else. I am racking my brain trying to figure out what your state contributes other than ill-educated actors who try to tell the rest of the world how to live.

As for your statement regarding the "tearing apart" of animals - you don't have a clue what you are talking about. Hogs, nor dogs are torn apart in "bayings". You are showing your ignorance.

In my opinion, God does a lot more crying looking at your state - no morals, no character, etc. I used to work in the school system, and we had children moving in over the years from CA - and guess what - they were always way behind our students.

I'm not normally this outspoken, but your picture of our area of the US is so out of touch with reality I just had to respond.

California is a great State. The only place in the States that you can find all the " Nuts, Fruits and Flakes" crammed together. Kind of like a giant bowl of Cereal. Some of your more free thinking, more literate acting residents of the Great State of Californis escape from the likes of you and make a two week long trip to come to Uncle Earl's yearly. Cultured ,Intelligent people. Might warrant you to get out more and let some wind blow through that "smog" laden brain(LOL) of yours before attacking the Southern States per se'. Really hard for me to believe that this little Topix got all the way to your "livin' quattas" without some help from someone else.

All you people talking crap about the Hog Dog Trials need to go see it and check it out before you start knocking it. It is not a "blood sport", "blood bath" whatever words you used. If you would have taken the chance to go and form your own opinion rather than letting idiots develop an opinion for you and stick it in your head, you would know that they BAY the hogs and get points knocked off of their score for biting or latching on to the pigs. The pigs are not hurt in any way shape form or fashion. Imagine what the hogs go through in the wild!! Being in the baying competition is probably a welcomed vacation from that! Some of the hogs actually look bored standing there while the dogs bark at them lol

Just go find out what it's all about on your own before you take other people's words for it.

i think a person from Louisiana should have gotten to take over uncle earls. i am not sure how much money the people are getting from doing this but just how much actually goes to winnfield? the prices have gone up this year and alot of competitors arent too happy! i know several people who said they will not be attending this year because of some of the changes.

While I can't speak to the price changes - I don't know anything about that, I do know that Winn Parish benefits from the trials. The people who attend spend money here, at least one hotel is pretty much booked up for that week. The rodeo arena and general area there is upgraded through these funds also. It is really easy to sit back in your chair and judge everything that the board does; it is not so easy when you are having to choose the person who is going to produce. It is also easy to criticize, but from what I saw, no one else tried to get Uncle Earl's started again - where were all of you who are complaining. Last year's trials had to be put together in 3 months - that is almost an impossibility. We are just trying to do the best that we can for our parish, city, and the sport of hog baying. I hope you will give it a chance to succeed.

sport? that is so untrue, it's not sporting to turn piggy loose inside a pen then have a pack of curs tear into it. the negative publicity to the community is greater than any benefit received by having a bunch of hog hunters staying in a cheap motel, eating fast food, & buying truckloads of whiskey & beer. find another backwater to host your "sport".

To ara:
You obviously do not know what you are talking about - the dogs are not allowed to touch the hog - they lose points if they do. It is called a "baying" because that is what they do - bay - or bark at the hog to hold it in place. I could say more, but I don't want to stoop to your level.

How does this relate to her/his concern for the animals?

You make it sound like money means class then denigrate people who attend community colleges. I assume you're an adult, and this is how you argue with someone? You put them down like a sixth-grader?

ARA, I don't like it, either. Even if the dogs aren't supposed to hurt the hogs, it could still happen, and probably happens more often than any of the people who like this sort of thing would be willing to admit (except when talking about it with people who enjoy seeing animals get hurt - to those people, it would be a selling point). The dogs could be hurt, too. I LOVE animals and don't want any animal to get hurt, and one should NEVER get hurt in the process of being forced to entertain people. Even if there were no chance of any of the animals getting hurt, I would still be against it. If someone trapped a person in a room and held a growling, snarling, slobbering dog a few feet away from the person's face and said "don't worry, he can't get to you" , even if it was clear the dog couldn't get to the person, the person would still be terrified. Imagine how the hogs feel.

Now let the childish put-downs begin because I don't agree with somebody about something.

The post was not about his/her concern for the animals, was more about bad publicity and namecalling.

and no money does not mean class but throwing around that you are educated just because you have a degree is ridiculous, I could have several degrees but that does not mean I know what I am talking about on every subject matter. Yes I am an adult and was not trying to argue with anyone, just simply stating facts but since you "put me down like a sixth grader" I will ask...what grade are you in???

i doubt you got any degrees at all. people that use dogs to hunt n catch animals for sport are trapped in the past, backwoods living, neanderthals. don't take no degree to be one of those. chasing pigs in a pen with dogs is SICK!

Judging by your grammar I bet you ain't got none of them fancy degrees either. Judging other people is what is sick. There's nothing backwoods about what we do. Meet me at Earls, help me handle and run my dogs, then you make a decision, if not then you are all talk. These dogs love what they do and they are well trained athletes. Nothing sick about it.
