Thanks Mr Noeske, and nothing backed her?
No. Here's how it went.
First Spot: Three dogs struck in front of us and trailed about 500+ yards to the right. Bonnie stayed closer to the left, struck and treed a coon about 200 yards up the hill in front of us and a bit to the left on the edge of a cornfield. Turned her back into the others. One treed a deep with a coon, one had a circle on the way to that dog and Bonnie and the fourth dog treed a circle near the other circle. I'd say Bonnie and the other came on their tree together. Bonnie had 175+. Timeout.
Second Spot: Bonnie had second strike... probably 600 yards ahead and a bit to the left, treed and had a coon on the edge of a cornfield. Meanwhile, one treed back behind us and to the left as we were walking back. She had a slick. Bonnie had been cut and ended up back on her previously scored tree with the coon. The other two had been treed probably.75 mile and treed along a road on a slick. Timeout. Bonnie had 375+.
Third Spot: Cut in timber along road. Bonnie had 1st strike. She stayed in timber. Other dogs crossed road and ran a hot cornfield chase...left to right. Down the hill to the right the cornfield ends and there's a small valley. Bonnie crossed the road down there and treed a coon on the edge of the cornfield. The other three treed a coon about 100 yards away...a bit farther ahead and down the hill a bit to the right. Hunt over. Bonnie 600+ CW.
She'll win under any set of rules out there. Good coondog. Nice owner/handler, too.
