An Actual Hunt

    Getting your dog involved in an actual raccoon hunt is key.  It may mean hunting on your own in an area where raccoons are known to be causing damage or asking another hunter if you and your dog can go along.  In either case, the goal is to give your dog some first-hand exposure as to what it should be chasing.

    Remember to get permission to hunt and let the landowner know when you will be there.  Even then, a coon dog can easily end up on posted property.  Avoid hunting too close to such areas as well as next to busy highways.

Hunting on Your Own

    When hunting on your own, it's important to hit an area. . . .
