    Default Raccoon hunting with a dog

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Just wondering if anyone has experience with this. What exactly are the roles of the dog? How do you hunt with them? On leash off leash etc. Wouldn’t mind getting involved but haven’t a clue. Any kind of dog? Cheers.

    Loads of fun with a good.dog that will tree them and stay there til you get there.


    Went out with a friend and his dog last fall. The dog put up a lot of coons! But he'd loose interest in that coon if we didn't get there within a few minutes. The dog would start running another one and we spent all night trying to catch up to him lol

    My dog will track and tree a coon at night time, or in the day he will stay at the base of the tree and bark. My dog will also dispatch any raccoons he can catch on the ground.
    If we are targeting raccoons at night time, I recommend the brightest flashlight you can buy, and a reflective collar for the dog, but a flashing light on their collar is best.
    I hunt with a Drahthaar, having a versatile dog is just easier than buying a different breed for every species I hunt.

    Yup. lots of fun , stumbling all over , tripping over logs, roots, falling into creeks while you're trying to cross it on a wet log, cuts and scratches all over your face, but a lot of fun.
    But the best part is when the dog/dogs tree a coon in the farmers yard at 12:30 /1:00 in the morning and the irate farmer comes out.

    Nothing says fun more than a couple of beagles, a corn field and a full moon...

    damn, that would be cool. Had a beagle that would chase pheasants, but not raccoons!

    A bait bucket, a few solar walkway/patio lights, Turkey blind comfortable chair, a tieout and bed for dog to lay on.

    Setup bait and lights in a opening, fill bait with cheap walmart dog food($20 for 50lbs), refill over the week as needed. Lights turn on at night and raccoons get use to them. Head out before dark with rifle, turkey blind, chair, dog bed and tie-out. Setup behind your blind with the dog tied up. When it gets dark raccoons can still be seen because of lights. Any racoon that runs off after been shot, you track down and finish using dog.

    Buddy of mine had a blue tick hound many years ago and was amazing at treeing raccoon. Depending on the tree the dog could climb into it. It was a lot of fun watching the dog in action.
