I see it used for hounds that are silent on track. I have hunted a few hounds that were like that and I can see how people would use that term for such a hunting style.

I use it and understand it to be a dog that will go as far as he needs to more less run up on one on the ground and tree it up the closest tree to him, by the time the coon knows the dog is around he has to climb, this dog is not interested in trailing and pushing the coon, and is overlooking this type of track looking for one red hot

This is so easyŚ-

COMPETITION DOG

Just read the ads.

Let me know if you see one that has:
Good cold trailer
Open on track
Big bawl track mouth
Dying locate
Nice steady chop on tree
Checks back in after 20/30 minutes if nothing found
90% accurate

Purple12, You hit the nail on the head with this description of a ambush dog. One that seeks red hot tracks that tree quickly. Definitely NOT my style of dog, but one that does good in competition, as they have a coon most of the time. Dave

Ambush style dogs are fun to watch in coons, if coons are scarce alot of ambushers outhunt their mouth.
