Interesting responses, thanks Folks..
By law you have to until nov8 unless itís a sanctioned hunt.
LOL - not if you live 8 miles from the MI line and hunt up there most of October .. Huge benefit for us northern IN guys.. I've only missed 6 nights across the line this month.
Nightshift - that is what I actually had in mind when asking the question.. Deep and lonely blows thru and is treed 5/8 in 10 minutes on a hot one.. Old cold trailer takes 15 minutes to grub one up 400 right handed after trailing it over 500-600 yards.. Still going to be a slight benefit for deep and lonely just due to time burn on the recast..
The new rule could really punish the dog that just flat won't tree with another and blows out of pocket when one gets treed close and with a coon. Now the close treeing dog has a strong probability of treeing two coons to deep and lonely's one.. Huge advantage and eliminates the automatic strike dogs advantage as Tar alluded to.
Pam Johnson/Allen - you all just trying to kill an fat old man.. Haters!!
Bowling I will agree to disagree with you.. Leash lock absolutely will take an honest, trailing hound and put him on the bench for a good portion of a hunt all too often and he will get beat. Happens all the time, but it's the rules for now. I believe this is a huge step in the right direction by UKC.. Be surprised if it is not forced on the the other KC by the membership soon as well..
This could absolutely change the type of dog that is winning the big hunts and we crazy, butted hunters are breeding to. Score card dogs vs coon dogs.. My .02 worth anyways. Not saying deep and lonely are not coon dogs, because they tree a bunch.. But can this current crop of big time winners produce a dog that can take a track away from three other hounds in a cast and tree it first and stay with company? That is a competition coonhound.. Not one who can take enough Ecollar correction to always be deep, alone and not have to compete on trailing the coon up and treeing first.
Rollin Blues - i hunted with your Sassy female once before she died, was a nice bitch for a blue dog .. She won the cast that night by falling treed with just a few mnutes left in the cast and having a coon.. did it right.. Hated to hear she passed.
Great conversatin all, one more night off and back to MI tomorrow night.. My best to you all.
