Took Sunday off of hunting, after getting to bed @ 3 am. Went to river, dip the worm 4x & came home with a 3# & 7# catfish, so have been eating good this week.
Monday night was just an average night for this area. Freak & Queen smoked a track through some thick stuff, but coon went in ground. Next drop, Freak 'slipped out of dodge' on old track & got it treed ahead of Queen on a big den tree. 3rd drop was with Freak, solo. Hit track & worked it a long way, with several tap trees, on bright moonlit night. Finally, heard a batch of coyotes 'light it up' right in area she was at, so she got out of there. Cub & Hunter were ready to quit anyway, so we called her in.
Update on Rolin Blue Country Rox pup I just bought a couple weeks ago. Showed him a coon last week & he we bizzzerk over it, when it came out of cage. Monday night, when we led him up to one he couldn't see in cage, his nose took over & he tried tearing cage apart, till we flipped kit out for a reward. No backing down on that live one!!! Ready start hunting him now that he has shown he wants to get some action.
Last night was action packed on 3 drops. Freak & Lil were in competition against each other with Cub & Augie handling & Hunter judging. Cub bet Augie $20 he was going to win, so let the fun begin. Might mention, Augie is very competitive in nature. !st drop, Lil has 1st/1st on a coon. Now Augie is really letting Dad have it!!! Next drop, Freak has 1st/1st on big leafy tree, Lil has 2nd/1st on big leafy tree as the 2 dogs were 20 feet apart on split trees & couldn't get either coon to look. Last drop, Freak has 1st/1st on a coon together after a nice 350 yd. running track. Hunter declared it a draw, even though Cub had a slight edge on circle pts. Overall, very enjoyable evening. That is the way it is supposed to be on nice evening in Iowa. Oh, I forgot, we must have seen 15 coon crossing the roads. Take care, Ron.
