They just leave and the dog that hunted a few hollers here got treed and we could have loaded up and made another drop. Instead, we end up riding around for a couple hours trying to find deep and lonely. Finally get to send them again at midnight or after and the same story, speedy blows out of here and we listen to a good old track unravel and get it treed then start our search for old barn burner. Find him treed way through the country at 4 or 5 am and have to go home cause there isnít enough time left before the deer hunters are out and about to turn loose again. Those type just are not worth anything to me or anybody else that I know around here. Why not breed dogs that hunt out an area instead of racehorse through the country needing a button to keep any form of sanity to them?
I know of several fogs that hunt their way out from you, and if they have what I like to call "coon sense" they will normally find a track to run within hearing and tree within hearing. But what I like and what you like might be different dogs completely. Cuz I don't want the 1-5 mph hunting dogs. I want the ones that hunt at 10+ mph, and when they get struck to bump it up even faster. I don't like ones that are straight line hunters, never have never will. If a dog is smart it heads for water to find a coon tracks here. And when I want to go home, the last thing I want is to dog hunt or chase a dog down to catch it.
But the type of dog you're describing I wouldn't hunt but about 3 nights and I'd go to work on it. Just to try and get it to hunt the way I want, not the way the previous guy wanted. If the dog goes a mile before it starts hunting I don't have much use for it here cuz you'll never be able to hunt it here and keep it alive, too many roads and too many different land owners to cross in s mile.
