    I hunted with a coon hunting legend last night, sort of like the Jim Moyer of Coon hunting. Hunted with Leon Childers and a dog called Gunsmoke, and my 16 month old Walker hound too. Made 3 den trees, 2 trees with coons, and 1 blank.I learned alot from him, real nice guy, and he only lives about 10 minutes from me. We will be hitting the woods again...Maybe tonight:big_smile:

    Back in my younger years, I took up coon hunting and really enjoyed it. Had a redbone hound named "Flash",that could get the job done most everytime out. Also had a male walker "Dan" and a bluetick pup "Susie" that I trained and sold later on. Those were the good ole days.

    I hear ya about the good ol' days! I had a good run back in the 80s. Had some GREAT dogs. Really enjoyed it. Still go occasionally with friends. Rough sport on an old man with a fake hip.
