I was at a local show yesterday and got talking to a lady with a coonhound.

I didn't get a pic, but it was very much like this "stock photo";

I'd never seen one in this country before, but the lady said they are starting to get popular. Probably as pets, as I can't see much use for them in the field here.

Still, it was very interesting, to me, to see one and have a chat about it.

If they do get popular, how long before the woke lefties demand a name change ? 

Cheers.

Been a lot mixed in to deer hunting dogs out here chartpolski. This one being a black and tan, the ones I find most interesting are called English coonhound coincidently. Think it comes from the original English foxhounds the breed came from.

Yeah, a friend of mine down there runs a mixed pack of bloodhounds and beagles on deer, and I see a few black mouth curs and their crosses being used on pigs and deer, so I guess coonhound would fit in, but there's no chance of us ever doing that sort of hunting here, unfortunately 👍

Cheers.

I have a huge beagle pack less than 500m from me as the crow flies . 
 

yiu can hear them in full cry when they are getting let out , it’s quite the noise to be honest !! 
 

A couple on our road bought a pedigree beagle puppy a while back , you never see it getting walked , or off the lead , instead it gets crated all day and you can hear it joining it with the pack in the distance . Last I spoke they wanted to breed it . 
 

some people eh ?

I’d love to get over to America tk hunt and fish, but even for all the running yotes an treeing cats an bears, which I’d love to do, it would be the coonhounds an squirrel dogs id want out with first an would be more gutted at not getting to do it than any of the rest, maybe one day

Pal of mines moved out to Seattle few year ago some cracking hunting and fishing in the states he invited me and the mrs over few year ago and I got knocked back for a visa sure some parts of Eastern Europe must have similar types of game to the states and a Lott more accessible for most
