Where do you think coon hunting will be 15 years from now.

Look at the changes we have had since the 90's. Do you think there will be much left of this sport?

Well all i know is try your best to keep on good terms with land owners. there are alot of good people out there who remember hunting with ol dad and like to see people doing thing the way they used to. as far as laws go all we can do is vote. if we would do more like cancer benifit hunts and fundraisers instead of fighting with each other it wouldnt hurt either there is always more we can do i mean look at swamp people they put what they do on tv and everybody loves them for it.

Other then cooler tracking systems and better lights I haven't noticed any changes in the last five years. Not expecting to much for the next five either.

I was watchin some outdoor tv and they had deer farmers on there raising deer to sell to farms to help genetics like cattle. this got me thinkin why dont coon hunters do things like this if they do ive never heard of it. i think its a neat idea you know raise coons vaccinate them for distemper and rabies keep the females and turn the boars loose in your hunting woods. im sure youd have to have permits but i think it would be worth it. something worth thinkin about.

Here you can have a permit to raise domestic coon was just thinkin a guy could raise the litters seperate boars and release them just like quail or deer.

I use to think wed go on forever. I never thought Id see ukc stand with hsus either. So it very well may be gone in 15yrs for yall. Im nto stopping. I use to say the same thing about chicken fighting though. Every generation born turns out to be more and more tree hugger city fied types. Would not surprize for it to become illegal. They believe animals have more rights than people.

15 years from now... I hope we are still able to free cast hounds and able to enjoy hunting. I also hope the government stays out of how we raise dogs and these anti-tethering bills go away.

The way I see it we have far greater concerns than turning loose coon. Coon are one adaptable animal. If they can find food, water, and shelter they can survive. Disease may knock them back for a few years, but give them time and their numbers will rebound.

I am more concerned about anti-tethering bills, HSUS, PETA, coon hunters putting inappropriate videos and photos on the internet, and loss of hunting habitat. This is the kind of stuff that poses a real threat to us!

It will be stronger then it is today. Social media can hurt the hunters but a news media paid by lobbyist can do a lot more damage. Social media can put the facts and info. out there that the news media never would. Be vary cautious of joining an Assoc. that believes you need to pussy foot around the enemy to defeat them the enemy will then be embolden and destroy you. When this country and it citizens gets enough of it's freedom taken from them they will stand up go against and defy there lobbiest, media and government to take back there freedom that was taken from them.

SAME HERE IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF MARYLAND. I THINK SOME OF THE COON CLUBS HAVE TROUBLE GETTING A PERMIT FOR A LIVE COON AT FIELD TRIALS. GUESS THE BLEEDING HEART ANIMAL LOVERS ENDED THAT.

Im not talking about feild trials or treeing contest just raisin litters out of domestic coons and turnin them loose to get wild. and if you immunized them it would cut down on distemper and such.

We've come a long way since "coon on a log"..... Well Let's see. Back then we had well I would say 40 to 50 dogs in a club hunt now lucky to have 10 , maybe 2 or 3 "gnc" there now "gnc" under every bush, dogs that treed coons not trees, plenty of land to hunt on never saw a posted sigh, NO SLICK handlers, and men that were men. in closing I bet there are not over 30 people on this board that has EVER been to a COON ON THE LOG contest. And no body I mean no body had ever heard of "peta". Yep we have come a long ways. And I'm glad to have made the trip. Hope I am wrong BUT 15 years from now this will only be a memory or even maybe a nightmare, JUST look where we are now compared to a year ago.

Fifty years ago you couldn't have made anybody believe we could no longer have coon on a log contest.
