We don't start seeing kittens till late july or early august in north GA. Atleast that's how its always been for me. You will have folks start claiming to see em on hunts any time now. What they see is spider eyes!

I agree, it's too early. But, they sure are looking since shoot-out season is over...I guess they have a calendar.

Its been hard to see any coons. Surely we cant making that many slick trees all of a sudden. Just cant get em to look. ANd one of the last was found but it wasnt looking.

You can train your hounds by running coon year round. Just cant kill any coon..Your right about the season.

You can kill coons during training season it just has to be on private land. Thats how i train my pups in the summer i just got lucky and found a man who is having problems with them and he give me permission to hunt if i wood get rid of them there killing his chickens

Yeah its true, its legal to kill a nest full of Bald Eagles too if your hunting on "private" land
Ive heard it all now. I want the page number that this regulation is on.

I've been hunting a couple of nights a week but good Lord it's dry. I can deal with the heat but it's tough striking a track right now. The last time I hunted we made 4 trees and all 4 were layups, we didn't get a single bark on the ground. We need some rain in the worse kind of way.

I finally took the dogs out last night for the first time since the season ended. I had to leave the coondog at home because she has not dried up completly from the pups, so it was just 2 15 month dogs and a year old dog. Red had something treed on the second drop out, but i did not go to the tree so i could not tell you what it was. I dont go to trees in the summertime unless they are real close. But It was good to hear a dog run again.

Who went to the tree then? Coons still not stirring much. Blackberries are the ticket right now. Wild cherries will be ripe in a short time. Should start seeing a few kittens any time now. From here till about feb. Coons will have plenty to eat!

Nobody went to the tree. I let him tree on it a while and called him off. I was just letting them get some exercise.

Have been for about the last week and a half straight. All dogs are having problems sticking a track.( and I've been hunting with some big named dogs. so it just aint mine) Theyll hit a track hard then run it a little ways and loose it. Its so dry. We have been making trees and seeing one about every 3 or 4 tree aint to bad i guess, just ready for it to cool off.

Somthing has happened to our coons.We cant find any tracks on the sandbarsand you hardly ever see one dead in the road.Dog's will hunt out an area and never get a bark.This time last year coons were everywhere and we had no problem treeing them. Very few were shot out back in the winter where we are hunting now.I have been told that parvo or destimper may have got in them. At least i know my dog's want slick tree.

My grandpa told me when i was a boy that years ago the coons died off around here and it took years for them to come back.Their was a coon crossed the road in front of me the other night and it was poor as a snake hair looked ruff to. It should have been fat because it came out of 50 ac corn field.When the distemper hit your area did you notice any signs or were they just all of a sudden gone.

My Dog did good up North but the arrangements I had for him to get in the Breed hunts didn't work out so I Brought him back Home.

Distemper is very Bad you'll know if its in your woods you'll find Dead coon everywhere!!! Dogs will catch sick coon a lot so make sure your hounds are up to Date on all shots.

Mostly just got gone. We found a dead one or 2 in fields. Buddy caught a sick one on the ground one night. If you suspect you have. Quit feeding them. Coons don't hang out together unless at a feeder or during rut. You might save a few without feeders.

With this rain coming thru this afternoon it should be a good night to run a coon. Those kittens will be playing all over the place. I called my buddy up to invite him to go and he has just got a walker female gave to him that is supposed to be a Jam up dog.: We will see this evening, ive already told him the guy had to be lying. It has two things going against it right from the start. 1 its a walker and 2 it was free. She does look good for a walker tho, I just hope she can find it in her heart to stay on the 5,000 + acres on the club, instead of heading for the next county like all of the other ones i have hunted with.

Well Sissy did pretty good on first time out in 5 months 1 tree 1 coon. My buddy did not make it with his walker so i guess I will wait and see how she does sometime this weekend. Im just Glad I had my Daddy with me or we never would have found the coon. I barley can find them without any leaves on the tree let alone when they are covered. She was good to me and treed in a nice easy spot to get to too. October cant get here quick enough!!
