All the coon hunters know I trap, so they call if they are gonna run in the area. If I get a call asking, I usually say yes after rifle season. And to let me know the day before so I can trip the conibears. That word gets around and the people running here w/o permission has stopped. :) for the most part.

Coon hunting is the most annoying sport I have ever seen,if I need a dog pound (what it sounds like) to kill a coon then I would never do it,can’t stand a bunch of barking dogs,and plus they go we’re ever..

Most dumbest thing imo..smh.!!!

Running hounds is quite fun. Used to do it a lot when I was a teenager. It’s more about the dogs than it is killing a coon.

Well, you’re a ray of sunshine if I’ve ever seen one. I guess you don’t know any houndsmen then or you’d know it’s more about listening to the dogs. A lot of them don’t even care about killing the coons. Same thing with fox hunters when there was still them around, i dont remember it but dad said they would build a fire and just sit and listen to their dogs run. I don’t care about being up all night anymore, but there’s not much better sound that a couple hounds running a track. Or a pack of beagles running rabbits. In my opinion.

Therein lies the problem. I don't mind 'coon hunters if they kill EVERY 'coon they tree.
We coon hunted a lot back in the late 70's and 80's. Treed a lot of coons and killed a lot of coons. There were not as many back then as they are now. I wish I had my black an tan bitch now that I had back then. She could flat out tree them.
There is no telling how many coons that I see ran over on the roads everyday.

We as hunters should all get along we have enough people that’s not in the hunting world against us any way. I understand it’s your land and you evidently don’t want anyone on your land. I’m not trying to argue with you maybe just try to make you and some others understand from a different point of view. Coon hounds cost thousands of dollars these days and let’s say they did turn loose on your neighbors place and trees a coon on your deer paradise. If you was them would you leave a 6 to 10 thousand dollar dog over there just because it crossed over the fence? If you was in there shoes I say you would not. If they get in there and get their dog and don’t bother nothing then there is really no harm. The coon hunters and the dogs will not scare your deer herd. If any thing it will save you money keeping dang coons out of your corn pile.
Respectfully disagree. Don’t turn your dogs out if they aren’t going to stay on the property you are allowed to hunt.

No harm? Disagree. If dogs are on your property 22-3am and you go to hunt at 6 to think deer won’t be busted out for a bit. Off their pattern. Human scent etc is in my humble opinion clearly incorrect.


You own the property. You pay taxes, take care of it etc. YOU should ge the only one dictating what goes on the land and whose there etc

I don’t agree with trespassing and am not going into the whole dogs scare deer debate. But unless you own a whole lot of land, there is a really really good chance that your dog is going to cross a property line.

So i dont know how you can say don’t turn your dogs loose unless they are going to stay on the property you are allowed to hunt. I don’t coonhunt anymore but if I did I wouldn’t turn loose with the intentions of ending up on someone else….

Old farmer told me Never trust a man with sawdust on their shirt or dog box in their truck. Coon hunters are bad, deer doggers are 100x worse. Run the piss out their leases and land then move on to others land once deer sightings drop. Run over everyone’s land for miles and make no apologies for it. They’ll be the reason the sport they love disappears one day.

Had a lease in Western KY where the coon hunters ripped the gate down on the backside. Was a big timber tract and guess they didn’t want to not be able to drive in.

Always love the these dogs cost thousands of dollars they arent going to just leave them response. I know some mutts from the pound that can be taught to come when called. Coon hunters love to tresspass most around here get permission on little 10-20 acre tracts and just go where ever they want to go from there. When we had beagles we could beep their collars and they would leave the track and come back if they were getting on land we did not have permission on, Its not that difficult to teach just takes some time to actually train a dog but they perfer to just let them run instead of actually training a dog.

I have met one coon hunter that was considerate enough to stop and ask permission. I told him no. he then said I have permisson on the neighbor if my dogs get on you could I come retrieve them. told him yes get them shoot the coon and get off the property as quickly as possible. Imagine that going to the neighbors at 5 in the afternoon instead of tresspassing at 3am. His dogs got on us one time that I know of and he had them off the property before I could make it up there on the 4wheeler. after that I never tried to catch him because he did what he told me he would do.

I have since allowed one guy to coon hunt under the condition he shoots everyone he trees. the turkey population has improved.
