I have hunted just about every breed of hound,some I like better than others. We now use mostly walkers on coon here, they tend to run a track faster than the oters, Really important when you are surrounded by limestone bluffs that the coon just love to hide in! I will always have a softspot for black&tans though!

Josh-I use almost every breed, or cross thereof that works!! If they dont work they get a bullet!!! I have redbones black and tans wlkers, and I had a plot male that just had a stroke and I had to put him down. I have had bluetics, english, bloodhounds. I just sold a little redtick female and a redbone male in texas. I am not really into any certain breed, just into the dog performing!!! I like them all!!!!!!! I used to get Full Cry, even had a lion hunter write a story in it on a lion hunt he did with me back in 1996 I think! I have let most of my subscriptions expire as most of it turned into advertizements!!!! bcat

All the dogs I have right now are registered walkers, I had a blackmouth cur, but he was run over and killed this fall. Im not really into the regestered thing, its just the way things have worked out! Most of the dogs I have owned were crossbreds of some sort, the best hounds I have ever hunted were either crosses or of unknown orgin.

I've only hunted with a handful of registered dogs over the years, and they didn't prove anything over the crosses. Any breed can be a good dog, I've seen it. Right now my dad runs (all crosses) a walker, two black and tans, one redbone, one bluetick and a plott.

It seems like the plotts have been grittier on bear, but that is definitely not a rule. I likem all as long as they hunt, and if they dont, like Bcat said, they should go down or at least get fixed.
