Age To Start

How old should a pup be before you start knocking squirrels out to them? This pup is 6 weeks old. Is that too early? Should I wait until they are weaned?

For dogs of that color I would start with possum drags, that generally gets them real excited

Boy I sure hate to tell you this, but looks like you waited to late on these pups. If they are not treeing before their eyes open, then it's too late. Lol
Nice looking pups

What does their color have to do with it? How old are y'all's spotted pups before you start knocking anything out to them?

Mr. Lambert

Personally, I have seen spotted dogs as you call them, running and treeing their own coons by 9 months old. Now that was in Janurary not the summer and they could hunt far enough to strike wild coons, not off feeders, run and tree and have the meat. I am sure some will say younger than that, but in these mountains, I think that was the youngest I have seen do so consistently. How about you and those red dogs, how old before they can and do tree their own wild coons consistently? Dave

Mr. Lambert

When they start treeing them by themselves, to borrow a phrase from another forum member ( Rocky Tanner ) "if a puppy can pull a train, hook them up to it". Hope that answers your question better. Squirrel might be a better option for you, I was talking coon dogs, I am getting old and forgot you were talking about Redbone pups. Lol. Dave
