There isn't too many flaws that I can pick out of buck. He's been a pretty good hound for me. When I cut him loose, he's going to be treed somewhere someway. I don't believe I can recall of a time where I've casted him and haven't treed.
He casts out hard and hunts hard. I've seen him tree 50 yards in front of me, other times I've seen him pick up his head and get out and cover some real estate.
His track mouth is a short bawl mouth. Doesn't say too little nor says too much. Gives just enough mouth and doesn't get bogged down. He is pretty good about getting under a coon in short time. he isn't the type that needs to stay on top of the beaten path, he will pick up his head and straddle. He is very hard to beat getting to the tree first. Throws a BIG one bark bawl locate. the kind of locate where you tree him off it. I've done it a lot in hunts with him. If he locates, start loading the clip. He is a 2nd strike, 1st tree caliber animal. Usually split treed 50-75% of the time. After he locates, he rolls into a steady chop and stays put. If he's 100% confident and locked down, he's locked down for the night.
He is really good about finding lay ups. Last night was the opening night of the 2015-16 NY hide season and he was doing more lay ups than driving tracks. We saw 7 coon in just over 2 hours. Just kept recasting along the edge of cornfields. Never did get more than 100 yards off the edge of the corn. Boom, boom. boom, locate, on to the next one.
