    That's some of the funnest hunting I have ever done. I use to go with a kid that owned a couple of dogs.

    I agree Crazy. I had hounds for most of my life and rate coonhunting as much fun as anything I've done. Its getting tough to hunt around here any more because the landowners have all changed. The oldtime landowners used to not only allow coon hunting;most of the times they had dogs of their own and would hunt with me. Now most of them have died off and the new owners don't know the difference between a Bluetick and a Blue Healer and don't care either. Kansas just doesn't have enough public land to run coons on.

    Glad to see a thread on coon hunting. I have had the pleasure of owning a few fine hounds includeing 2 nite champions. One is the old walker hound in the pic. Trixie, and the other was the bluetick in the pic. Sadie. The pup in the pic. is one of Trixie's pups Ranger. Both these gals raised several fine pups and as you guys know even with the finest parents it's not allways passed on. I use to do a lot of UKC hunts in the 80's. I also allways had a good jumping mule or 2 around. Since both my old dogs passed on I kind of lots my motivation, I have owned several since but never had any close to being as good as there were. I still have a mule out of a reg. tennesse walking horse that a friend of mine is fine tuneing up in no. Missouri. He is gaited and a lot of fun to trail and pleasure ride and to hunt from.
    Good hunting to ya guys!

    spoonfish... Thanks for the photo, it sure does bring back alot of memories from the 80's. I had a Walker that would tree every coon it came across, only problem was it would also tree anything else it came across, always kept the night exciting though. :) We are being overrun with coons where I live, sure wish the pelts were worth what they were worth in the 80's and kept up with inflation, I could actually afford gasoline to make it worthwhile. :) Abu

    If anyone wanted to sell a few whole frozen coons ( or other small animals)that were in excelent fur with no damage I would be interested. I cant pay much with do to frieghjt but no skinning involved on your part and no market to deal with. Im in south Georgia and would prefer it be someone form mid U.S. to eastern U.S. for shipping cost.
    Anyone interested please send a private message and I will respond with my email addy.

    Take crae.. Sam

    Thats quite a article Dusty,
    I have been in a some bad situations, and its not a good feeling to have when your hound is in danger. They are the most gentle dogs I know of and also the tuffest. I sure enjoyed reading that, it brings back a lot of memories. Thank you bro!
