    Here i am sitting in the recliner about 9:00 and I see lights coming down my road. I hollered to my wife if she was expecting anyone. She said no. I put my beer down and grabbed my pistol. Watched the truck pull all the way around to my driveway and stopped. I opened up the garage to meet him and he identified himself and told me he was looking for his dogs, that they a coon treed on my property. I told him who I was and turns out he knew all of my family. So I walked him down to the creek and showed him the best place to cross. The coon went about 20 yards over the fence into another tree. After 10 minutes of 3 guys spotlighting the tree, they never could find it. Brought all 4 Walkers back and of course my dogs were going nuts.

    Thought I'd share my 1st experience with you guys. He was a real nice guy and so were his 2 sons. Told him to come back whenever he had to but to make sure he stopped at the house first.

    And I always thought coon hunting was a midnight or later sport.

    Nice to know your one of the descent people in the world. Glad they asked to go get their dogs too.

    I'm glad you had a good experience with coon hunters. They are just like Deer hunters, good and bad in all. I always make an attempt to contact landowners if my dogs happen to stray off on posted land but if I can't get ahold of you I will get my dogs but that usually don't happen because I huntil big country.
