Re: A love for hunting, but first time coonhound "Dad"

Armyhunter1 - That is a great looking pup, she should make a great hound. I started out like you are 3 years ago and have trained two hounds from scratch, they still need lots work and more hunting time. We ran and treed our first lion last weekend twice, so it was a major confidence booster. I had ...

Re: Getting started on coon hunting

Hey coonslayer quit being a knucklehead. K Canterbury, don't worry about what other hounds men say, there are lots of na-Sayers and some good guys that generally want to help others. It took me a couple years of hunting before my dogs started treeing fairly regularly. Feeders work great, and I think...

Re: anyone in eastern mt or western nd

Does North Dakota require a hunting license to coon hunting there? I will be working periodically from north of Sidney, Mt to Eklaka, Mt and I'm planning to bring one dog with me. I mainly planning on staying in eastern Montana but was interested to know if there was more public land in ND. Thanks

Re: What's your shooting iron ?

I carry a Henry 22 mag level action. It doesn't get used much due to limited amounts of treed game. Hopeful, that will change this year. :D

Re: The Misfit Cat Hunting Thread

Duck Goose, I started hunting hounds again three years ago after a long break as a kid hunting coons and bobcats in Oklahoma. I would definitely recommend reading David's book bobcat dogs, a very good book. Secondly keep hunting one dog at a time until they improve, or don't work out. I have one wal...

Re: Running lions with one dog????

Justahunter, I assume you mean leading your dogs on a fresh lion/bobcat track until you jump it? I have been very successful in tracking elk in the rifle seasons, and normally if it's a fresh track (>8 hours) you can at least see it, jump it, or get a shot in 3-6 hours later. It may take walking 3-5...

Re: Trump

Some really good thoughts and posts. I thought about the 2008 election between Obama and McCain how I really didn't like either, so I voted for McCain. Likewise in 2012 I couldn't believe Obama was still in the office as COC and Romney was the GOP nominee. I voted for Romney, but not with very much ...

Re: Lake Tahoe Houndsmen

Thanks Jim. I appreciate the help. I'd be a little concerned about rattlesnakes on the NV side. I worked around ELy, NV and they were thick.

Lake Tahoe Houndsmen

I'm will be traveling from Montana to Reno/Lake Tahoe area to work on a construction project from late May until October. Does anyone have any recommendations for hound friendly areas for coon hunting, clubs, training areas, or license requirements for either NV/CA. I have two hounds that will be wi...

Re: Wanted hound dog

Keep watching this forum on the classified section or coondawgs classified forum, ever so often someone has a good cross-bred or grade hound for giveaway. You will just need to pick it up. Be patient and say a prayer for the perfect hound. It works. I found mine in Oregon after the owner drove off w...

Re: caging coons for dogs

I took my Walker hound out before daylight this morning and she hunted and treed like a seasoned hound. She still doesn't open on track, but barked solid on a coon she ran into a base of a hollow tree. The coon was only in the tree a few feet and growling ever few seconds. The second she barked on t...

Re: caging coons for dogs

I took this young hound out twice this week, 1st night she hunted pretty hard even through it was about 70, but she never barked on a track. Last night we hunted until midnight, and she didn't want to hunt too hard, I lightly scolded her and she hunted out further, maybe a 100 yards, and never opene...
