    Well guys, after being out of coon hunting for over 20 years, I'm getting back in! When I was in high school I hunted every night, literally almost every night for years. I had a pretty dang good pair of female redbones. I loved it more than any other type of hunting and that says a lot cause I live for deer season. I got out of it cause I didn't really have much time for it once I started working and going to college and the other normal stuff that college age boys do.

    Well the other day me and a buddy I work with started talking about how much we miss coon hunting so we decided to do something about it! I'm picking up an 8 month old X-bred male ( redbone/English cross ) that's lightly started and my buddy is getting a 14 month old bluetick female that's already treeing her own coon. He also has a 12 year old walker female that we are hoping still has a little training left in her. Some stuff has changed in the last 20 years, this whole X-bred thing was something I had never heard of and was really surprised they can be registered. This male that I'm getting is UKC and PKC registered.

    Now I've gotta get a new light, dog box, tracking system, and training collar! My wife is gonna kill me! Lol. I'm as excited as a fat kid on a chocolate cake! I'll post a pic of him as soon as I update tapatalk so it will let me upload a pic.

    Went coon hunting once and vowed to never go again....and haven't.

    However, I must admit I envy your passion for it and wish you the best of luck! That's how I feel about rabbit hunting again.

    Btw.....don't worry about others on here giving you grief as it's not popular on here.

    How'd the ol x-bred turn out? I'd love to get back into it. My story is the same done it in high school every night. Now with kids and a job just don't have time. Hoping when the youngins get big enough I can get them interested in going and that'll get me back in.

    He's a coon treeing machine! I let my buddy talk me into selling him to him but I regret it. I've got a 3 year old redbone male that I really like but I wish I'd kept that x-bred.

    Good luck, brother! I'm still a relatively young man (29) but those late nights don't treat me as well as they used to. I stick to the birds (grouse, quail, turkey) but I've always enjoyed watching a good gun dog go to work!

    Good luck! I'm still trying to convince the little lady that the addition of a coon hound would really be something. All I get is eye rolls. I'm just waiting until my son gets old enough then I can use him. She has a hard time saying no to him. She finds it very easy to say no to me. Lol.
