When I first started reading this post I was understanding. I am a disabled Veteran and living on a limited base income. See the current prices, and being a coon hunter since a kid know a little about price of coon hunting. So I could relate to both sides. Is expensive and you have to be truly bitten by the bug to stick with it. However more I read I had to swing to the side of fair pricing for a hounds worth. You lost me when you continued to complain when several options were given to help you out. I just gave away a fair B T that needed finishing. There's a B T right now listed on this site for 100, and she's registered. What the Hell you want, someone to give you a Gnite for free and help train you to hunt it? Yes we all try to help beginners get started but you have to get up off your backside and help yourself! There are countless hunters out there with GOOD Grade hounds who do not advertise because most want Reg. Instead of posting a complaint about prices try asking for an in-expensive beginner's pleasure hound.

As for not knowing how to train a pup, or young hound, try reading. Too many "How To" books out there to use that excuse!

You could also find someone to let you and your son hunt with them and make sure your son is going to like it before spending any money.

Well thing is, as you already know or are soon to find out, your boy won't really care how many coon you shoot. Get any old mut that's free or cheap that will almost tree a coon and not leave the country. Most likely your son will still love that dog an still love you and will be eager to hunt and just be out there with you!! I take my boy with me every time and we don't have world champs but they will tree an generally have a coon. I got one dog I paid for,$250 dollars. The others are all freebies that people couldn't stand any more. They hunt good sometimes sometimes they don't!!
Since your not comp hunting and don't care about papers,
IT AINT ABOUT THE DOG
Who cares just get on Craigslist find a cheap hound that isn't mean an go hunting.
Hell load your kid up an spend 6 months riding all over looking at dogs tell the owners what your up to an they'll take you hunting. When ya find an ol worn out dog get it. Or don't fact is the boy will have a good time just riding along looking, not to mention all the other things your gonna be ( shopping) for. Guns, lights, boots 22 shells their like finding the holy grail.
Pleasure hunting is just that, pleasure! Take the kid hunting. It don't matter what for. Come to my place I'll take ya and I got a pup I'll give you to take back with ya,. It's a racket buddy big name dogs are big money but the average joe don't need them. They just need a dog and a coon to run from it. It's only sniffin an barkin.

why such high prices??? i dont sell dogs first off but if i did sell anything on the place people would laugh at the price i would put on any dog.

i have young family, house mortage, all the regular bills. money is always tight. hunt all my dogs a lot, have good hunting gear from transportation to tracking equipment and lights ect... dogfood, wormer, other shots it adds up quick. any dog i have that makes the cut over a year old and doing good isnt leaving and if did would cost some bucks. the older dogs that you spend thousands of hours with and are hunting machines and family buddies no way in hell would go anywhere.

all that above isnt even considering all the time in the woods away from family, gas money, sleepless nites that sure affect work the next day, ect.....

i hear it all the time someone wants a cheap turn key dog to take the kids hunting and you may find it but rarely. if you wanna teach the kids something start a pup from scratch go through all the headaches, the ups, and downs and in the end will have something you appreciate. may sound crazy but im a puppy guy and every dog on my place raised and watched become hound dogs.

on the other hand though there are plenty of hunting age dogs started that get either messed up or just need a change of zip code or game pursued and make nice dogs quick and for cheap price.

I no where I live I see these young guys that wont a good coon dogs for a cheap price and they do buy dogs but when asked how many coon they tree and find its less that 50 % well Im not feeding a dog like that so you do get what you pay for so if you wont a cheap dog there out there for 400.00 - 500.00 atleast where I live I know of at least a half a dozen that fits thise type of dog. these guys are always reselling looking for a better dog for the same price that's all that type dog will every be worth. so keep looking or change how much you think a dogs worth. I would think if you trained a few coon dogs you would change your mind on what the dogs would be worth to.

Seems like at least once a month someone gets on here complains about the prices of what dogs are going for. Coonhounds are much cheaper then a lot of other breeds, and a top coon dog is often times much cheaper then a top bird dog and a hell of a lot cheaper then a top show dog. These are facts. If you can't understand why a dog costs as much as it does, don't buy it. Coon hunting like most other hobbies often become a money pit. Ever own a boat? If you can't afford a hobby, go find a second job, and quit your complaining.

No sense answering this post guys. All this guy wants to do is whine and cry. Nothing can be said to help such folks. Plays that 10 year old like a violin. I have a 13 yo grandson and he has his own and I have mine in the kennel. I didn't give him his, he earned it over two summers cutting lawns. More you post back more he likes it. Save your advice for someone who really wants it.

Yet again more smart ##*%* comments that aren't needed. Its hard to find much a 10 year old can do around this area like cutting lawns most people around me either do it their self or have some fancy company to do it. If some people would get there head out of there ##*%* and pay attention they would see where it says I don't have a problem spending money for a dog but when something is not affordable thenyou can't get it there have been a few that have offeres good ideas but some people just want to criticize other people like me that don't make a lot of money and want to invole others in something that should be enjoyable for just about everyone.

Msmith82, have you ever tried saving some money back?

When I was a kid, my folks would make me save up if there was something expensive I wanted...to this day, I still do it.

Back earlier this year, there was 2 big sporting events out of town I attended. With a family of 5, I saved some "fun" money to be able to do it. By saving up, I was able to pay for the event tickets, hotels for a couple nights in each city, food, gas, local attractions, and etc....One of the sporting events, my middle son also attended.

I just know saving money has sure made things I wanted more affordable...........Just an idea. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I was reading stuff on this site two years ago and saved up and just got my first coondogs last may...... it took me a while since I had my first son Sawyer and made sure he was takeen care of first but it was well worth it

Buy a standard ukc pup. Keep track of every penny you spend on it. Vet bills, feed bills, time training,flea and tick prevention, dog house etc. Keep track and I garuntee you will be well over a 1000. That's just 1 year. Selling a hound for 2000 after 2 or 3 years of training, is barely breaking even. Hound prices are dirt cheap.
