What is everybody’s opinion on running coon in daylight vs night

Night time is my vote. That’s all I’ve ever know people to run them but I’m sure people have especially this time of year.

I prefer day time. The races are a lot shorter. For me I like to stick to bigger tule patches or small briar patches. It usually some pretty good puppy work.

Man I guess I may be missing something. Never ran coon during the day.

Coons travel and feed day and night. The best time I’ve hunted was from sundown till midnight. Next best was about 2 hrs before daylight up to about 8:00am.

My coon hunting is mostly a side product of keeping dogs in shape. I road them in rice country. We tend to cover a good 15 to 20 miles. And they will catch coons here and there while they do it. That is the main reason I prefer daytime. Most every one is laid up somewhere shady and cool
