Read your post below about coon hunting got a couple of questions for you. Do many still hunt coon in your area? What is the most popular dogs used. Not hardly anybody round here hunts them any more. You mentione MIL eyebrows in your recipe I would think that the bluing would give it an off taste.

We still have a few coon hunters in this area. Most of em are running redbone hounds and ridgebacks. They do a pretty good job of keeping the coon population in check. My dog is a ridgeback and she does a great job with the coons. She got tore up bout 5 years ago by a big male coon and she learned a tough lesson then.

BTW: de MIL eyebrow's wuz just for garnish.....

Walker hounds and Blueticks here. I still see a few Black and Tans though. The best coon dog I ever saw was a plain ol' cur dog. That dog hated coons and would at times go off an tree one by herself...and keep it treed for days.

Sid, This aint Clipper but there are a lot of coon hunters out there. The number one coon dog in my opinion are the treeing walker next the english red or bluetick.We had and still have olde tyme english kennels. One at my sons house and i took mine and made a tack room and a feed room out of it with a three stall barn attached. I let the lake west point cooners used my property as as their club. They only have 5 UKC hunts a year and they are huge. The deer hunters has most of the land leased around here makeing it hard for the coon hunters but a lot of them hunt here on our farm. I used to go and just lision to the dogs run but have gotten so sorry i dont even do that any more. Hope this helps to answer your questions. James

If I remember right walkers and blueticks were popular around here. One of our favorites was a redbone. I haven't been coon hunting in years. I sure did like to sit out and listen to them. The mention of coon hunting stirred up some old memories. I am working local now and hope to make time to go with some of the fells that still hunt. Once in awhile we would take one to someone who wanted to cook it and for awhile the price of hides was pretty good. It has gotten so a lot of people don't want any dogs on their place and it is kinda hard to find room to hunt around close.
