    Bring a compass. It's awkward when you have to eat your friends.

    I've got the DVD ... Dan and Ann 2 redbones.
    My hunting partner ran redbones. redbone skunk killers. tough on the nose some nights!
    I had the black ones!
    quite the rivalry every night we ran.

    Skeeter, I went to a few of the hunt competitions as well. likely hunted with Merv. I ran blueticks, English , lots of good memories. Had a few good dogs, if I do say so myself. Also the odd pot licker. Takes a lot of work, to get a dog trained, and keep them straight on coon. old243

    I remember seeing a lot more coon hunting with hounds but it’s seems to be fading here in Ontario. Seems to still be popular in the states, kinda sad it’s not more popular here.

    too many cars and too much permission needed in southern Ontario. We lost more then a few dogs to cars. Painful experience!

    coons and dogs don't care about permissions / private property and cars will hit your dog as likely as hitting a coon.

    toss in record low fur prices. lot of work to get a hide ready for sale only to give it away or have it sit in the auction house till it sells - if ever. and I ain't eatin coons! ... so if I shoot it and toss it I'm a criminal.

    So you adapt and hunt something else. I still love hearin a hound run!

    Wrong words. What I meant to say was that "My terrier attacks raccoons which makes him susceptible to disease , bites etc..."

    I never read any books I was given in school, I hated reading. But when I was given that book "Where the red fern grows", I read that book 3 times I think before I gave it back. Reading this post has made me want to read that book again.....and I still hate reading. Thanks for the reminder!!

    Iíve read it to a few of my classes. A lot of the kids today just donít get it. Was also a favorite of mine as a child.

    I did a night hunt with a friend a few years ago. Enjoyed watching the dogs work very much. It's too bad the hides aren't worth more so the dog owners could make a little to feed their dogs.
