Hell, may as well break out the pictures of Molly at work to give you an idea what's going on out there in case you've never been **** hunting with a good dog.
Here's Molly shortly after we found her, she's really screaming!
She's working the tree pretty good, she hasn't been there 10 minutes and already has quite a catch circle going!
This one was shot in the eye... he was dead on arrival. Molly couldn't tell the difference... she was estatic to get a hold of that **** she'd been screaming at for so long!
Here's the finished product, notice the blood on the belly where Molly worked it over a little bit. Of course some fur handlers would freak out at that sight but I assure you... I sold over 40 ***** this year from the trapline and coonhounds and was never docked for chew marks.
Hope this helps explain the situation a little bit for you, it's not a blood sport. There is an art to training a good dog and taking home good fur, it's a fun art to learn! :coolgleam
