i did alot of coon hunting with dogs for many years growing up. my son is 6yrs old now and i bought him a walker female last fall. she's 2 yrs old and never been hunted. she is a house dog now and sleeps with him, and a good watch dog also. nate and i would like any advise on the best way to get her running/treeing coons. we did take her a few times last year, she run a few tracks, rabbits i'am guessing and a possum, which she barked awhile on tree and left it when we got to her. heres a picture of nate and his first dog. thanks for any info, scott and nate.
