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.
