I've been thinking about getting a Blue Tick Hound to coon hunt with. Has anybody been around them before? Are they easy to train, and can they be used with rabbits too? Sorry about the questions, I've never trained dogs for coon and rabbit hunting, I've only helped my dad train our Brittany Spainel for bird hunting.

nice! im jealous, i want to go rabbit hunting, im waiting for deer season to be over with so we can go run my patnas rabbit dogs

im not sure if a blue tick hound and a blue heeler are the same, but my older black next door neighbor as well as my grandfather say never trust a blue heeler, only experience ive ever had with a blue heeler was my ex girlfriends brother had one, he would bite you if you didnt pet him, and bite you if you did

They aren't the same. They do have the same colors, but the heeler looks like it's mixed with something like a German Shepard or something and the hound looks like... well a hound.

I was kind of wanting something I could use for both. Plus, I like the way Blueticks look, and me being from Tennessee it's my university's mascot too. They may just be good for coons, but I still like them. The only problem will be them barking all night, anyone know how to fix that?

I know we had to train our Brittany Spainiel to go after birds. My guess is you'd have to do the same with Beagles for rabbits. I've never trained one to rabbit hunt though.

I take mine to place's like church's ,cemetary's out in the country where you might see a rabbit setting out.if your pup's old enough and ready to start all you'll have to do is get him in to position where he can see a rabbit a couple time's run off .Most of the time after a few sight chase's they will start.DON'T over do the sight chase's .After a few sight chase's pull in to where the rabbit's are setting get out with out the dog then run the rabbit's out of the open .Then get your pup out and walk him over to where the rabbit was setting and he should start running when he smell's it...We went to southern Ill. this weekend and we killed a sack full of rabbit's for the local deer club so they could have a fund raiser cookout what a blast .heres a pic.of my coonhound,Image

Your pictures aren't showing up. Make sure that the Disable BBCode in this post is unchecked. You wouldn't happen to know of any bluetick breeders in Tennessee would you?
