Last night was the craziest night i ever had coon huntin. We took my 6 year old walker dog maggie and our puppy. We walked down the creek and cut the dogs. a few min later we heard this weird noise i thought it was out puppy wineing. I shined the light and about 10 feet from us was a coon walking towards us in the creek and our dog didntt even know it was there at first. I guess we could have shot it but we were in shock this had never happend to us before adn ive never heard of it. So we ran and got them and cut them where the coon went up the creek they struck and ran it for about 15 min and just quit. Maggie has treed hundreds of coons in her life time but couldnt tree that coon after it was right there and that was unusual to us. We didnt get to take her alot last season because my pawpaw died adn hunting wasnt really on my mind to much. but i couldnt believe she couldnt tree that coon after it was right there. Can a dog forget how to tree a coon after a while i dont think she can as many as she has treed buit a little concerned aabout that.

It could be that it was a hot track most dogs cant run a really hot track

Try this... next time you see one crossing the road that you wish to run. Wait about fifteen or twenty minutes before you drop a hound on it and I promise you will tree a lot more road crossing coon. :)

question. I have a 13 month old walker. he just now started coming on. he'll tree with other dogs , will fight a coon alittle. but some times he wont run out to far, and he runs into things all the time at night. he even ran into the truck the other night. Is this part of him being a pup . if so how do I get him to run out and hunt good all the time.

I have a 7 month old english, an I was having the same problem! This is what I have been doing. I have been taking him out to the woods by himself every night and I mean every night for the past month and turning him loose, and each night he has gone out further and further, and staying out longer! By letting him get use to the dark by himself. He is naturally getting use to the dark , without having another dog being there to make him feel secure and safe. He is getting over the fear of the dark. I don't know of a quicker or better way, but has been working so far! Tonight he went out about 250 yrds and stayed out for about 45 mins. He didn't run anything, but we are working on that! He came back when a pack of Yotes' started up, he did bring me a half eaten coon! Lol We are over run with Yotes' and they seem to be killing off everything! Has anyone ever heard of Yotes attacking hounds? I apologize for changing the subject!

heres one for ya. in early june we went out a little earlier and all of the dogs were hunting close for whatever reason. one of mine hit a tree ONCE. he opened a short chop and left. we stood around for a bit and was shining the tree and there was a coon WAY up. we tried to encourage all the dogs to tree but they looked at us like we had lost our minds. ill throw it in that one of the dogs is a NTCH. only reason we could come up with was the coon hadnt come down from the tree yet. and that short chop was my dog getting a whiff of him somewhere around. we could have shot it out but it wasnt season and we couldnt even get the dogs to stay on the tree or show any interest towards that one tree.
