    Howdy- I saw the link for this site on Fartbook, so I thought(?) I'd check it out.

    The first gun I ever bought new was a 1987 336CS in .35Rem. I was 20yrs old at the time. Fast foward 24yrs later, I still have it and put it in the "rotation" when I go deer hunt'n. It's currently set up with a Williams WGRS rear and Firesight front post. I would like to add a scout scope set up to it so I can use it just about anywhere on the land I hunt on.

    Welcome LT67. Jump in, relax and enjoy yourself.
    That is a sharp looking Blue Tick.
    In past years, I dabbled in coon hunting. Had 3 Purple Ribbon Blue Ticks but only 1 was worth his salt.

    I tired to train a rat terrier for squirrel and rat hunting, all it wanted to do is make friends with them.

    Good to see you have a good dog!

    I'll show my dog pics of your dog and see if it doesn't whip it into shape.

    That's a good look'n Bluetick you got there...

    My Bluetick has never been trained to hunt, but my female Redbone has. They're mainly for pets/critter control... and taking up floor space in front of the wood stove during the cooler months:D Although I do want to take the Redbone out on a lead where I hunt just to see what she can find before season ends here in Ga

    both of those blue ticks are good looking animals. many, many years ago i use to coon hunt with my great uncle all over east texas. he passed awy several years ago and i sure missed all that fun we had hunting late at night, running and chasing those dogs. i haven't done it in over twenty years now. the last coon dog i had back then was a female walker hound i bought from my uncle, and she turned into a pretty decent coon dog after he helped me train her. that brought back some fond memories guys.
