There NEVER has been many cold nosed dogs with the ability to be FAST. Just my opinion, Ken Risley
Slow as we know today doesn't mean cold nosed and fast doesn't mean hotter tracks.
Tracks are still the same because how a coon lays a track is still the same. But people have always associated a dog boo hoo around and eventually getting treed cold nosed.
What if those dogs really were just poor track dogs not cold nosed? Ya they rarely missed because they took their time and checked trees and the pack finally decided on the right one. How often did it take more than just one dog to get a coon treed. All the tracks couldn't have been old bad tracks that required such a cold nosed dog and that long to get one treed.
To many still hunt low population coon areas where tracking is more limited and difficult yet it doesn't take them that long to get a coon treed when they get it worked up. Many now have witnessed dogs today taking that boo hooing track away from that dog when cut after him.
What if the ambush dogs of today are just that fast and some are superior lay up dogs?
What if as a whole dogs are just that much better track dogs than those 40-50 years or longer ago?
We know that all breeds are breeding for different traits than dogs once were. What if we are at a moment in time when we are finally about to get it right? If we are can we stay at the precipice without falling off back to where we started from?
My point, our description of the dogs then and now may be completely wrong.
