Jeremy and I traveled to Mendenhall, Ms. last night to their U.K.C. hunt. Jeremy hunted Tramp 11. They didn't do any good, one of those nights. The dogs in his cast were going about 75 yrds and locking up treed and never looked at. a coon. We decided to pull Tramp 11 from the nite hunts and let him mature a little more, and get a little more age and experience on him. I hunted Sheba, she looked good considering she hadn't been out of the pen for about a year till last week. 1st drop, two dog cast, Sheba struck 100, English dog struck 75. They went about 100 yrds. Sheba Treed 125, English treed 75, we got almost to tree English dog was off to the right trying to trail off, Minused English dog tree pts. we went on in to tree, spreaded out to shine tree. Almost emidiatly Mr. Williams said that he saw the coon. I went over, but I could not find the coon. Sheba was treed up a big turkey pine. Mr Williams saw the coon again,but I never saw the coon. Mr. Williams told me not to worry for he had seen the coon and the coon was there, but I told him by the rules, we both would have to see the coon to get plus pts. Sheba 225 circle. English 75- tree, 75 circle strike. 2nd drop, Sheba struck 100 English 75. They worked for about 200 yrds. Sheba treed 125, English never treed. We went to tree, large beech, I got to shaking vinesand Mr. Williams said he saw the coon. I went out, but I never could see the coon. Sheba 225 circle, English 75 circle strike. 3rd drop they went in Sheba struck 100, English 75, they went deeper about another 50 yrds. Sheba treed 125, English dog trailed back toward us for about 25 yrds. and treed 125. We passed by the English dog first, he leashed him there and we went on to Sheba. She was treed up a small tree about 5 inches thick and 20' tall. The coon was balled up right in the top, even I could see that one. We went back and shined the English dogs tree, but never could find the coon, Sheba 225+, English 200 circle. 4th drop, They went in about 300 yrds Sheba 100 strike, English 75. It was a bad track. Sheba treed 125, she hushed 2 min. caught her 125- They were beginning to warm the track up, but time ran out on them. Mr. Keith Williams was the guy that I was hunting with, He was a real nice guy and a great guy to hunt with. I told Mr. Williams at the end of the hunt that my eye sight was about gone, my hearing wasn't too good and my mind was about the same as my eye sight. He laughed about that. We had a good hunt.
