.

Tar the answer is I sure would. I have been to several major hunts in the past. I dont think I ever had a dog entered in a major hunt that I attended as a vendor. I have also been to several major hunts or had people at major hunts competing with a dog that we did not set up and sell supplies at. When I want to sell things I go to sell. When I want to have a dog hunted in a hunt. We go to hunt. One correction. Maybe 7 years agp I did attend and have a dog in the breeders showcase in Ky. I have been to the breeders showcase more times just hunting than I have as a vendor.

I have a young one now being hunted by a friend in another state. . Seeing more coon than I can put on him right now. If he has any ability once the training is done. We will be on the road testing his ability. If he doesnt have the ability. We will move on to another one. You can say I have sorry dogs. But you cant say I wont give one a chance to prove his ability. I dont worry about 300 dogs. Only the other 3 in the cast are my concern.

I guess thatís where we are different I went to the hunts to participate yes but I cannot remember a time I went that I had at least one dog or high as 5 sold and the money waiting on me when I got there. I always enjoyed myself I usually got beat but make no mistake about it I was there to make money. And I ainít driving to bum Egypt spending a $1,000 to get beat or get a complimentary dog food bowl.


Letís move autum oaks to southern Oklahoma itís been in Indiana long enough we need equality in coonhunting !!

So take a dog good enough to win then. You're sounding more like a dog trader then a coon hunter.

Tar I've been sending dogs to Indiana and Texas and all points in between for 25 years... including Oklahoma. If they tree coons here they tree coons anywhere and that's a fact. I've drove further to hunts then you'd ever even imagine and never conceded anything because the hunt was in somebody else's back yard. Autumn Oaks ain't coming to Oklahoma...get over it.

You what OMG ! Oh my goodness ! Holy cow ! Your right I never been to Canada lol. Buuuuut not many northern dogs have a good coon treeing average down here. And it is rougher than those crop lands and we got armadillos lol. But the ukc staff likes the big hunts close to home and those northern boys are spoiled rotten for having to travel. I canít count the 16 hr drives I have made and if you ainít rich or have some way to make your expenses back a working man wonít go to many. Itís to expensive it was ok back in the day to listen to the big boys talk that far from home but I am way over all that.


How many complimentary dog food bowls you got ?

Kudos to you my friend, you addressed Tars concerns in a positive, but factual manner. You have proved that a coondog is a coondog anywhere, I have always believed that fact myself. I have hunted a coondog in these mountains, took them up north to Indiania, Mich, and down South in the swamps and they performed in all of those places. I Hate those excuses that certain places are so much harder to tree coons, NOT SO with a Real Coondog. Dave

You got that right! Location certainly helps with a dogs training, some places just have more coons and are easier to hunt, but a true coondog is just that, a dog that trees coons where ever it's turned loose. I have seen my share of so so dogs, but not very many that I called a coondog. Dave

being average is being like most of the pack. I wish I could find just that right now. Most of the pack, including mine only tree with eyes about 15 % of the time. Dog power is awful. Makes hunting a task that is just not enjoyable anymore. If I can't find something very soon that suits me, I am done.

I agree that dogs have changed alot in the last 40 years but I don't agree that there are way more good dogs now. I think the percentage of good dogs are probably about the same their faults are just in different areas.
