I have a Bone dog and he has limited ability because of my age and lack of being hunted right, but he has unlimited potential because he has what it takes to have been a very good one. I have seen him do things naturally that amazed me and made me wish I had him when I was younger. I had a dog in a final cast a few years ago with his dad Bone Collector when he won his 3rd truck. Bad part for Bone that night, is that he actually made a mistake that he usually didn't make in a cast and was beatable. But even on one of his bad nights he was good enough to win and collected his third truck. I think one of the best all round hounds of all time. Doug could take him to a large hunt. Breed him there and still win the hunt. Something most people wouldn't even think of doing.
Thing is we all talk about different dogs and depending on your age and experience. You have different feelings and excitement about coon hunting. When you get older it just takes a little more to excite you as you have seen a lot of nonsense, mediocre dogs and very good ones over the years. My Bone dog is fun to hunt. He excites even my old spirit. He can tree a coon anyway you can think of. Just lay one up, trail one up or scorch a track to the tree. If the coon doesn't want to tree. He can catch him and he isn't doing it by sneaking up on them. He is doing it barking every breath with his head in the air, running him down.
