Hound hunting is truly a traditional method of hunting in the America. The first European settlers brought hounds with them to the New World and they've been running, treeing and baying game here ever since. If you never owned, trained and hunted your own hound it may be hard to understand. However, the bond between a hound and his master is a unique one. The sound of a hound trailing game enlivens the houndsman's soul to an almost child-like glee - truly a rare human pleasure. Clay started raccoon hunting when he was 14 years old, but then got out of it for almost 20 years. Recently, his passion for hound hunting has reignited and he thoroughly enjoys hunting his American Plott hounds for raccoon. This is always a family adventure.
