Ive had a few guys ask about how he hunts by himself so I hunted him alone 1 night last week and 3 nights this week.
When you first cut him loose, especially on the first drop of the night you have to walk him about 25 yards while he takes his male bathroom breaks, then he is off on his own. He circles out 450 to 600 yards out from you on the Garmin and comes back into you. If you don't leash him he will hunt back out and circle the other direction from what he went. He will hunt up a creek bed you turn him on a few hundred yards and then circle off away and come back.. He reminds me of his father when young.
He opens on the track with a bawl mouth but says less than Im use to. He is a chop mouth tree dog.
I have noticed he is independent of the dog you turn him with and I have seen him split tree. He acts like he would rather be by himself with the couple of other dogs ive turned him with.
The more I see of this dog the more I don't care I sell him. I am going to stop hunting this dog this fall because I have others I want to hunt.
