Yes those photos are from japanese hunters and their shibas. As far as I know the only people hunting with their nk's are just dave and myself. I don't think there is anyone hunting with shibas in the us but I can be wrong.
In 1994, Mr. Ichihara acquired 50 days old shiba pup. He named this red bitch "Koro". Koro was not an easy pup to train and he could not call her back very well until she was full one year old. On several occasions he had to leave her in the mountain and retrieve her the next day. Otherwise, she had a very good quality to be an excellent hunting dog, easily maneuvering in and out of bushes and streams. By the time Koro was three years of age, she became a wonderful companion for Mr. Ichihara in the mountains of Tanzawa.
