I suspect you could get a little more versatility from them, even though they are also used on hogs. BMC's come with a couple different coat types. You would want to make sure that you got one with a thicker coat for the cold. Why not get a true versatile/continental that was bred for waterfowling/upland and tracking if your wanting something a little different? Why a catahula? Just curious.
Good post, Slight correction.
Catahoulas are a bay dog, and used as such. Bulldogs and Pits/Dogos are generally used a Catch dogs.
Agree with you on a good versatile.
Pudelpointers, Drahthaars a good choice. Drahthaars are most widely used by hunting establishment in Germany/Austria and their main quarry IS Boar, a team here in the states recently placed 10th in a Pro hog baying contest out of 42 teams, his dogs first try.
Jagd terriers are also heck on hogs and can be used to fetch though they are smaller in stature (20#) but dont let that fool you.
They are basically insane on hogs/fur with no quit or sense of self preservation, and very trainable.
