I might be mistaken...but.. Not sure if calling coons is even legal in this state.
If it is..It must be done at night...Legal hunting hours are 1hour AFTER sunset to 1 hour Before sunrise.

Coons are hunted at night with hounds. The dogs 'tree' the coon and keep them 'treed' till the hunter or hunters get there to locate the coon in the tree and shoot it.usually with a 22.

Everyone knows you hunt them on the porch with a broom.
Hunting and fishing is not a sport to me its a way of life:rock:

Coon hunt'n with Hounds is a unique experience. From the mid 70's till the early 90's A buddy and me would go EVERY night during the season. We killed alot of coons and had alot of fun. I wish we still had the land to hunt and not as much traffic on the roads. Back 'in the day'... People didn't mind if your dog ran a coon on to their property. They actually welcomed coon hunters. That has all changed, Farms were sold, 'City' folk have moved in, the old timers are gone, and there is just to much traffic on the roads. Not to mention all the bear that are around, Dogs would be treeing just as many bear as coon !
I often think about how nice it would have been to of had a set of Garmin Astro GPS collars on the dogs.

Ah- yes....The Good 'ol Days.:up:

Hunterbob,,,The coat trick always worked. If we lost both dogs we would leave the dog box behind and they would be in it or near it in th morning....Made for some sleepless nights though.
