    Which do most of you like better? Males or Females? I have 8 grown hounds 4 males and 4 females. I have 6 pups 3 males and 3 females. I like the way females usually start early but I like a good male once they are grown.

    Don't matter much to me. The best hound I have now is a female, but there is 2 times a year I can't run her. I have 2 grown males and 3 grown females, 1 male pup 1 female pup. I guess my problem is I like them both to much.
  5. problem with my two males is they like to fight, and are really competitive with each other. I like the females.

    In the field Females. In the kennel for sure Females. I have 2 males, but my females are so much easier. I wouldnt say they hunt harder, but in every other catagory their heads above males in my opinion.:thumb: Oh I forgot to say they do come in heat twice a year, but males are in heat every day of the year.

    I like to hunt females better than males. In nature the females are the ones that hunt for food. :up:

    I prefer females it seems to me they are better hunters most of the time,but I will say when you do find a sure enough good male they are hard to beat.
