Re: Den trees

I enjoyed the video and I am sure these men are packing some coon dogs. My question is why so many den trees. I understand its December and these coon may not move far from their den but I believe these dogs trailed some of these coon they treed quite a little ways. Were these coon out feeding and decided to call it a night early and headed back to their den and the dogs picked up the track while these coon were already back in bed? Did these coon hightail it to the den once they heard the dogs? What are everyone's thoughts on this? Certainly not trying to start anything bad here. Just curious.
I have given up trying to understand the whims of raccoons, but what I do know, is that from about Thanksgiving till spring coon movement is pretty spotty in the Midwest. You'll tree em like crazy for an hour or two out of every night, and when they aren't moving you'll go a mile and a half to tree a den.
