    My Walker is hell on coons. Loves to tree them and wait for me to show up for the finishing shot. The coolest thing he does though is when he catches up to one on open ground. In those cases he will hold them by running around the coon nipping at it to prevent escape and effectively hold it in area about 10x10 until I show up to finish it. Amazing to watch as he nips and occasionally head butts or body checks the coon to knock it off its feet. That most incredible part is he does this without damaging the the coon's hide and almost never gets a scratch on himself. I love watching that dog work as he is as graceful as any animal I have ever seen.
    Bring a compass. It's awkward when you have to eat your friends.

    Awesome. Thanks for the responses. Kinda thought thats how it was done. I like the idea of pre baiting them with dog food and sitting and waiting.

    These work great!!! I had one up for the deer and all I ever got was pictures of coons all over them. Not one deer though!

    I always wanted to get some terriers and go around to barns in the spring and let them go in the loft. We have trapped 27 coons in the barn since Christmas.

    I know some.guys that go to abondoned houses and barns and let the dogs go.

    Stand outside where their escape route is and wait for them to appear

    I love those coon hounds. That is a smart dog. My terrier attacks the coons which makes it vulnerable to wounds and disease.

    Yup the idea is to make them work for the kibble and spend as much time as possible getting a meal. There is also the the fact that they leave a trail of powdered food every time they leave the feeder.

    My only problem is that I am gone so much, I can't keep a feeder stocked and can't find anyone to do it.

    If your terrier is attacking the coon hounds, maybe you should leave him at home. He seemed like a nice pup when I met him.

    My uncle's all ran coon hounds back in the 70 and 80s.thy would travel all over Canada and the USA.. had some great dogs.remember the 100 dollar coons. Great memories and a heck of a way to grow up.
    geesh I probably ran against them all! One summer I went to 18 different events. PA NY OH and most of Ontario.

    got $114 for one coon, my best ever! got 187 that fall averaged $37 each. those were the days!

    was only making $6 and hour back then and clearing about $150 week.

    Was getting paid to go hunting! One night I got 17 coon. Also got fleas and lice. but they wash off!

    One friend of mine Marv Carlson, (Jarvis) walker male named Spike and female Betsey, took 423 coons!

    He's long gone now but he was a dog man!
