Hey that looks cool!


Do you ever use the dogs to tree something beside raccoons?

I ask because I saw Coon Dogs used to tree a lynx or some big cat.

Just curious.

My dogs are only Coon dogs. Other people use them to hunt Bear, Cougar, Bobcat, Hogs, they'll track and tree/bay pretty much anything that you can hunt. I've never seen them run anything besides coon, but one day I'd like to see them hunt Big Game. I think it'd be awesome!

Thanks for the post! I hope to make it over there at least on Saturday. I read somewhere about how many pups are for sale there....I'd best leave the checkbook at home ;)

Lots of pups of many breeds! Took some will power, but I didn't buy any of them! :D
This will also be the first Autumn Oaks that allows a new breed of hound to enter. The American Leopard Hound.
