I have a problem: took my B&T 14 mos out last night and he opened real nice, started trailing well and when I heard him over and over again with big bawls in the same spot I walked in to where I could see him. He was just circle'in around these hardwoods bawling like he was dying. He never treed and I didn't shine the trees (don't want that bad habit) but I am fairly certain a coon was in one of those trees he was circle'in around. I ended up pull'in him out of there on lead. Any suggestions?

No he actually has done it several times, when other dogs tree he still tracks, can't locate tree or something?

He isn't putting two and two together that the tree is the end of the trail and that he should stop and tree or something.

Maybe running bobcats. By circling are they tight circles. Like on say an acre or relatively loose circles?

I don't think bob cats are in the area, I live in Indiana.

I've never hunted in indana. However. I believe bobcats are in all of the lower 48. Bobcats also will sometimes run in circles. If he's staying in like a couple acre radius I'd say he's not running bobcats but if he's running big circles its a possibility.

I never thought of Bobcats I will keep my eye on ground for tracks.
I did have some progress last night he opened and tracked well good death bawl every 16 to 20 seconds. ( I have been counting the time that passes between them for future competion hunts, I think once they open they have to continue on track silent for no more than a min. at least thats the way I interpeted the rule), when he started treeing I was close enough to yell the command "STAY" now I know in the world of competion hunting this is wrong, probably in most regards it's wrong. But it worked he stayed at the bottom of the tree banging away with great choppy barks, trying to climb it as it was slightly bent over. I tied him at the base of the tree and looked for a long time to find the coon. there were vines and cross logs everywhere I couldn't find the damn thing and really wanted to reward him. It might have been a slick tree but the light I have pretty much sucks and I probably missed it in the tangle of branches. I packed it in after that (I need a new light). anyway maybe time and patience will prevail. "Train" definately has talent at least in my opinion based on some of the dogs I have hunted with in the past.

I don't know exactly where Avon is but I live in Southeastern Indiana and the past week I know my old redbone has treed three of them. I saw two of the three bail out on her and the chase was on again. I dont really know about the third time but every time I would get close to the tree I would shine up to see what tree she was on then Bam she took off on another track. This old female is right about 8 or 9 years old and is a absolute stay put tree dog. So I know for sure there are a bunch down here!!

Good luck with figuring what to do cause I cant seem to!! Just Kidding!!

If you're running a bobcat, you will definitely know it. Your dogs will bust out of hearing and they will be treed. As you are walking into them, they will bust out again and tree again. If you don't catch them right away, you may be in for one of the longest nights of walking you ever had in the woods lol. It's hard to get close to a treed cat with lights and if you do, most likely it's getting tired and going up every 100 yards or so. You will definitely know it if it's a cat (atleast after you walk in 3 or 4 times and your dog is gone LOL)

Is shining the trees a bad habit? When my dog trees, or when he is circleing a few very close trees I shine them to see if his treeing is correct, or if he is at least close to doing the right thing. I don't praise him unless he is accurate, but I wouldn't know if he was accurate if I couldn't see the coon myself.
