Not right off hand, but I'll bet Aaron can get you hooked up with someone. I'll keep my eyes out for you.

I don't know if I would want in on a 3 year old started dog. But, that is just me.

Chad, what are you looking for? Everyone's views on a started dog are different. Are you looking for a pup that has some exposure to the woods or are you looking for a dog that is treeing its own squirrels solo?
Depending on what you are looking for the price will vary. For exmp. A pup 6wks old can go $200 and up.a st arted dog depending on if he's treeing his own game or just exposed to hang up squirrels or caged squirrels can be the difference between $200 on up to thousands. To me a good started squirrel dog treeing its own game but still needs plenty of woods time is worth $1000-$2000. Sometimes you can get lucky and find a good deal. There are dogs out there for sale that are started and I could probably point you in the right direction. Let me ask around and do some research.

If I'm not mistaken your in N.E. MS Right? If so I will be in Corinth area for a competition hunt at the end of this month
. If you want to see some great squirrel dogs come on out.

Yes I'm in the Corinth area. I really want a younger dog (12weeks +) that's had exposure to squirrel and somewhat knows what to do.

10-4 I will keep my ears out.

There are a few guys in your area that squirrel hunt and have pups from time to time.
