Is it possible/hard to train an older sent hound to hunt?

Question by : Is it possible/hard to train an older sent hound to hunt?

I just adopted a black and tan/bluetick coon hound from the Humane Society. I used to coon hunt and know how to train a puppy but not an adult. Is it possible or hard to train “retrain” her? If it’s possible would I just start her out like I would a pup?

Best answer:

Answer by Rayven ~ Life’s a B
Its possible but that is on the assumption she has the drive to hunt and the temperament for it. If yes then its possible. If not? then you are SOL.

  • You’re training her right from the very beginning, so yes, start out just like you would a pup. Once she gets the idea, she should be absolutely thrilled!

  • OF course it’s possible & OF COURSE you start from square one.
    BUT………..an adult coonhound was most likely DUMPED ***because**** it was a ROTTEN useless worthless lousy hunter.
