Hounds IMO are not house dogs. And YES on the tracker if I could only have one piece of equiptment it would be a tracker. My girls love my hounds and my Lab so I got it good. Hound hunting is the most fun you will have ever IMO. If you can get em for the right price I'd do it. Hound hunting isn't a pastime it is a lifestyle thyey require a lot of your time to get em good and keep em there.
