The new no leash lock rule should negate the deep and lonely babbling type dogs that strike first and tree a mile deep. I think we will start seeing winners that tree coons that the deep and lonely dogs ran over trying to get away from the other dogs. Dave
Yes sir Dave...a good coon dog should win most of the time...competition hunts should be set up for the best coon dogs to win day in and day out...the rest will fall in place...there will be better coon dogs as time goes by...
Training dogs is not so much about quantity, it's more about timing, and the right situations...After that it's up to the dog....A hunting dog is born...
