I used to a little when I was in high school but had a couple of very bad experiences and I'll never do it again. My brother and I pleasure hunt alot but I doubt you'll ever see us in the competition circles again.

nc hunt,i live in central va.chesterfield county.i competiton hunted a few times,but its not for me,while i had fun coon huntin,the competition part was no good.my oldest female(may she rest in peace) was a grandaughter of flag,and many people i hunted against either loved that line or hated it and felt they had to prove my dog no good either way,and it pissed me off,because that dog could flat find a coon.i hunted with alot of dogs that could win a competition but couldnt find a coon if it were on top of the dogs head,dont get me wrong though,theres alot of good/great dogs in the compitition circles,but its just not my cup of tea.right now im houndless but looking for a pup or a started dog,but coon hunters in va.seem to be slim,so ive been attending some compititions to take a look at whats out there before i buy a new dog.

Well, here in the Peach state it is getting harder and harder to find spots to hunt, but I still try. I am a UKC master of hounds and bench show judge, so very often I am working at a hunt instead of participating. When I do get in the woods I am mostly pleasure hunting. But then, isn't that what we are supposed to be out there for?
