The cream always rises to the top and you read about them on those glossy pages !! As far as coondogs now depends on who you are talking to.

Mr. Bowling

Yes, I agree, as I too have seen open trailing dogs tighten or go silient as they got older and smarter. Not all dogs do this, but some sure do. Dave

I hunt open trailing dogs, but enjoy a good coondog silient or open. If my open trailing dogs can't beat a silient dog in a competition hunt, then they deserve to get beat. I should have more strike points to start off with, and if they beat me by treeing more coons, then I need a better dog. I have owned a couple of silient dogs that were pretty good coon dogs, but not competition dogs that could win hunts on a consistent basis. I would love to draw 3 silient dogs in every cast I hunt in competition and if any one of them trees more coons than my dog, I WILL NOT complain. Dave

Dave,
This post and your later post were two of the best posts on this board. IMO
You speak the truth that some don't want to hear.
Comp hunt rules haven't always helped the way some train their hounds. I feel as long as they're giving up to a 75 pt advantage for barking 1st you'll always have babblers, booger barkers, ghost chasers and the issues that always come with that. I too like an open trailing hound, but agree, a good coonhound is a good coonhound. It would be great if we could prove just what every open hound is ACTUALLY opening on (if anything), but that is IMPOSSIBLE and so that issue will never end as structured.
At least now they better get their own or get there fast.
