I am new to the sport but I need to say my 2 cents worth here. My local clubs is mostly english, with couple guys having a walker and atleast 1 guy a black and tan. My self I just got to young redtick english. However I hunted way back when ,20 years ago, with a guy who had a redbone. I hope I never find myslef getting to the piont of only hunting 1 breed, to me its all about the hunt and seeing what a dog can do. now at my club because of the numbers english usally out performs all others however there is 4 english to every 1 of any other breed, therefore the % is in english favor. Also a person can take the best of any bloodline and depending on the person or type of trianing that pup gets depends on what he will turn out to be. I truely plan to get into comp hunts soon but I knew if I every get to the piont where i feel any other breed than the one I am running at that present time is worthless then I hope I have enough sence left to retire from the sport all the way around. I guess I am just saying its more about the hunt and seeing what the dogs, no matter what breed can do, beacuse of its trianing or bloodline.

Walkers always win the titles thats funny look at the percentages B&T's have a higher percentage in the hunts for numbers entered verus wins than walkers do. I sure the heck aint jealous of any walkers If I was I wouldn't hunt with people that have them. It is a fact that 3-1 ratio the 3 usually come on top. But it is funny at B&T sectionals I hear walker people saying the same thing those Black dog people won't have it for a walker to win thier sectional. So I guess those walker people are jealous of our B&T's right.

I didn't say they were I was refering to your statement of jealousy. It is the same instance as what you stated jealousy. I sure aint jealous of any walker dog. I am a firm believer of the best dog wins but that does not always happen and we all know it is true. I don't care what you hunt if it deserves to win then it deserves to win but I have seen to many instances that the dog doesn't deserve to win and does. You look at bench shows it is the same thing if you have a walker in a show and the judge is a bluetick guy the odds are already stacked against you. With todays system if there is 3 englishes in a cast and 1 bluetick the odds are already stacked against the bluetick. It is just how it is. But also look at other breeds I have seen some good plotts but you don't see them in alot of hunts does this not mean they are coonhounds and couldn't win the hunts no it doesn't there are far fewer comp hunters in the "smaller" breeds than walkers. Go to a few PKC hunts alot you go to probably only have walkers in them hmm wonder what breed will win. I know at my club and the clubs I hunt at unless I hunt they are all walkers in the hunts and I don't comp hunt much right now. Just look at it from a different light. Because I hunt with alot of walker people and they will tell you the same thing and all they have is walkers they will admit the odds are in favor of a walker especially in the summertime. and some of them actually have walkers that I would consider a coonhound. But most walkers I would not consider that because I look at trailing and treeing ability and to me walkers have the treeing ability but the majority don't have the trailing ability. We can debate this all day long and will never see where each other are comming from. Just go to a hunt with another breed besides walkers and see what you get.

Because walkers have a hotter nose and that means they will tree sooner and can tree more coons in the time limit than the other breeds

I really dont care if they listen. I know a good dog when I hunt with it and thre isnt a dog out there that doesnt slick tree and just because Walkers win all the titles now the jealous hunters are saying there is cheating going on. I learned quick that jealousy gets you NO WHERE!

I really don't think you would know a good coon dog if one bit you in the butt.And you keep saying Walkers win all the titles?Have you not noticed some good B&T and English winning some big hunts lately?I have seen some good Walker dogs but more and more they are turning to hot nosed slick treeing dogs.I will not feed one like that.Also I am damn sure not jealous of the breed.And all those excuses you make about smart coons making a dog slick tree.If you got a balanced coon dog with a nose they won't fall for that.You need to also understand that some of the best coon dogs in the world don't comp.hunt.When you get on here running your mouth and use a sign off signature like that is disrespectful.
