Great pictures. I spent many nights in the woods coon hunting. I had some real outstanding Walker coon hounds.

HH, You need to get you a dog!! Or at least tag along with some folks.

Ranger, What line of Walkers did you hunt?

Tried the new girl out yesterday. She did better than expected. Her and Sally ran it and then from what I could tell of Wendy's tree bark, I think she hit the tree first. It was close though, her and Sal got there right about the same time. Wendy was off milling until we got a little closer, but then she went right back to treeing.

This is a Funny pic! She just landed from a jump. Lol

years ago i had a walker that was as means as they come ... REX... this dog would rip your arm off if given a chance... i used to have to use a stick to push his food to him... that is true ..i could not get close enough to feed him..i bet your thinking why i would have or keep a hound like that...well let me tell you ... this dog was not a people person ..unless you had a rifle in your hand .. no rifle couldn`t get close to him .. with a rifle in your hand he turned into your best friend and as playful as a kitten.. he was the best coon hound i have ever seen..

When we took him hunting i used to get me rifle ..then i could walk right to him let him loose .. he would jump and want to play like he was your nomal house pet.. set him on a coon and he would never give up till he had him tree or caught..,, after a night or day of hunting take him home pen him up.. go to feed him and loose an arm if not carful... i loved that dog .. reminded me of myself ..

Man Yogi, I think I would have retired from Coon hunting if that's all I had! I've hunted with a handful of mean dogs, but never one that made you take a gun along. A friend of my dad had one called, Lover Boy. You had to be real careful about pulling him off a tree, if you weren't...he'd bite the hand that fed him.

Got some more Pics on the way! And Good News!!

Tanner competed in a Bench Show this past weekend. She took home Best Female Of Show!! Brought home two Plaques and now she lacks just 15 points to be a Show Champion!!

Here's a pic of a Bluetick from last night. That's Sally in the back too. I girl I know was in the area for a big Youth event so she dropped by with her dad and we took the dogs for a couple rounds.


The first drop it Poured rain! Couldn't hear a darn thing, but thought we could hear her dog, Prancer. Well it finally let up and soon Sally opened and then treed. Prancer was also in the same spot. Tanner, I had her along and well, she just came out of heat and hasn't been out for sometime... Anyway, We got to them and I caught Tanner and Sally and Prancer would not show a tree and left. Well I'm standing there with Tanner and she smells up this tiny little sapling. Whatever. 5-10 minutes goes by and Sally comes in and we catch her. She smells up this sapling too and starts treeing. 10 feet up and YEP, a Kitten coon!! Prancer came in so we caught him and moved on.


Next drop, they hit a hot one!! Prancer struck first and they got it moved not too far in the woods and treed it.

Then the 3rd drop.....Dogs went in and struck real good. I thought they were going to lock down on tree, but no. They moved back behind us and crossed the road and tracked and again it sounded like they were going to tree. Tanner never went with them, she came running up the road, not good, so I put her in the box. Well they boo hoo'd that tracked and it blew into nothing. We walked in and seen Prancer swimming a pond, finally caught him. Then Sally was gone and went and got treed deep with a mother and Kitten.
Wasn't the best of hunting last night I'll say.
Got more pics, just need to upload.......

So... maybe this is just my ignorance talking here, but... I see plenty of shots with the dogs working, and that's awesome, but I don't see the end.

I guess what I'm asking is do you just track the raccoon and that's that, or are you taking the coon once it's treed?

Cale actually took one in Texas and we are working on tanning it now, but I just realized I never read about the finish, unless what's here is the finish.

Does that even make sense?

Rick,
She's gonna have to answer for her situation, but in Va we have a chase or training season, then a kill season(for lack of a better term) during the winter.
A lot of the bear or coon hunters I know now run their dogs to the tree, pull em off and go find another.
