Hounds-Fox and Coon-Does a foxhound hunt coon the same as a coonhound? Is the dog the same stock, or what is a coonhound? Is the dog the same stock, or what is a coonhound? Will a foxhound hunt fox, coon and rabbit, each and all? Does the color of the dog cut any odds? How is the blue ticked fox hound?
There is no such dog as the “coonhound.” They are all foxhounds and are called “coonhounds” because they have been trained to hunt coons instead of foxes. Yes, the foxhound will trail any kind of game, and they are the best dogs for hunting fox, coon, ‘possum, rabbit, etc., in other words the best all-around dog. I don’t think the color makes any difference and the breeding has very little to do; it is nearly all in the training.
