Biggest hunting and most consistent redbone I've been with was Shotgun Red. He was pretty much the same every night, through the country by himself with a coon. He was the type that when you cut loose he was looking to get away from the other dogs and get his own treed. And the more you hunted him the harder he went. And yes I agree Richard, the few times I've hunted with Fancy and Boone they were looking to get one treed by their self. Fancy seemed to be looking for a coon the moment you un snap her, if my memory is correct didn't she tree a coon like 10yds from the truck a couple nights before the purina nationals last year lol.
The night I drew Fancy she got deep and alone with a coon on the first drop. After the 2nd drop the other 3 dogs in the cast (mine included) were scratched on possum. Now hunting alone, Fancy appeared to be hunting closer and more thorough it seemed, treeing 2 more coons alone with a short walk to both. I was pretty impressed, and this won her the entire hunt that night. I bought a pup off her the day before and was thankful I did after seeing her in the woods that night.
I never did get a chance to hunt with Boone, but heard he would make you walk.
