Since theres not many videos gettin posted nowadays heres a c o o n hunt video a couple nights ago on a full moon night.C o o n s were scarce.The hounds covered alot of woods without a bark and then had a hot race straight to a den tree up a straight up hill.I could barely climb it and stand on it to shine the den tree.Not often does a c o o n look out a den tree at you. Made two clips out of a longer video due to poor camera work.ha

My older son went with a guy couple times that had a jam up racoon hound
I told him, you don’t realize how much a good one cost nor what’s involved in training one
Laying in bed the other night I heard something yapping it’s head off, knew it weren’t no beagle
Went down next morning and he had bought 2 blk tan coonhound pups and put them in one of my kennels
I said boy, have you lost your mind, putting those long legged yapping howling things in with my dogs
He said I’m going to sale one and have the other trained
I said you better get them about 20 acres from my beagles and away from the house
I can appreciate a good treeing hound but he don’t realize the training/time and work to get them like that

Everyone should have coonhound at least once in their lifetime, good for them 👍🏻

I like that he wants to join the Raccoon hunting club, he’s doing just what we want. The younger generation to get involved with hounds and hunting. Just saying, JMHO

Totally agree it’s a good thing to have a interest in racoon hunting and have a good treeing dog
But as you know it takes a lot of work and know how to train a treeing hound or you pay big dollars for a good trained hound
My fear is he don’t have the patience/time nor know how to train racoon pups
Hate to see them become kennel hounds
If he had been a little less shoot from the hip and threw 2 blk tan pups in my beagle kennels I would have helped him get into racoon hunting as I did with field trial quality beagles
Anything to keep kids in the woods or on the water, I’m all for it

I totally agree, a pretty impulsive move. Did he put the cart in front of the horse? I believe with your expertise and help it will get him in the right direction to get the pup going. I surely hope he has the patience while training the pup, or the money to pay for a trained dog to help the pup. JMHO

Son’s standing around fire pit last night
Young guy showed up with a 3 year old hound that had already won 11 events
Turned him out while they were at the fire pit
Hound headed towards back field
10 or 15 minutes he was on a trail
Shortly after guy said he had him treed 400 yds away
They left the fire pit and headed that way
Time they got to him the hound was tearing bark off the tree that the racoon was in
Guy said dead and hound followed back to the house
Then the guy said load up and dog went to truck and jumped back in box
Now that’s my kind of hound
Kid said he had turned down $10,000 for that dog
Now my son is more fired up and hooked more than ever Lol

Just curious son is getting into coonhounds
Do you compete or would you possibly recognize pedigrees if I posted
I’m not familiar with UKC nor coonhounds
