well that sounds a lot like how she is. she rarely follows strange dogs. 9 out of 10 times when trees, she is spilt off from the group. i might get the 7 gen pedigree on her. she just turned 8 years but still has a ton a drive her. she is not the fastest out there but she got alot of young pups started for me. im not sure if its that she has such a cold nose or just alot of experience but last weekend at a nite hunt she treed a coon up in a river birch tree and the none of the other dogs even barked at once. the other dogs are nite champs, so i know they can get it done. all the guys were giving me a hard time by telling me that it has to be a possum, cat or just some trash just because their dogs wouldnt tree. the tree was big and full of leaves, so when i got there i had some doubt but i shined it anyways and after a few minutes of looking, i saw him laying on a big limb. i pretty sure that he didnt walk that night. this has happened a quite a few times. i know when she strikes, she is on a coon, but sometimes there aint no telling how far away he could be. she is honest, hard hunting solid coondog. The best ive had up to this point.
There is no better feeling than when your setting on a creek bank listening some swamp music.
