Shoot it out and tie the dang thing to its collar. Let the dog wear it for a few days and he will never want to smell a possum again.

Nope.......... Don't even want a dog that trees coons. If you need a good Conndog, I know where you can find some. They would be down in Florida in my old backyard.

Coon hunting 101: You never shoot anything out to your dog that is not a coon.

You are rewarding him for treeing a possum. The old timers would beat it out of them.

Don't give-up. I saw a possum dog turn into the best coon dog I have ever been in the woods with. A shock collar will break him.

And sometimes you have to cut bait and move on. One thing I have learned about good coon hunters. They never get to attached to their dogs.

Right. A young dog will get a good full season if he shows he is learning and wants to hunt. After that they become someone else's problem. Hunting a dog hard... Several times a week is what it takes.

If it's an old dog they can be broke but it may break you in the process. most of the time it's not worth it. Hunting near residential areas increases the number of possums usually. They take the easy meals and the road kill.
