Basically the dogs track a coon's scent and pursue it. They corner the coon and Billy can kill it. Chapter 13 has a great example of a hunt. Billy leaves after dinner and sets his dogs free on the trail. They soon track a coon, but the coon loses them with a trick. The dogs quickly figure it out and trail the coon, but the coon eludes them again. Just as Billy packs up to leave, they chase the coon again. They tree (send up in a tree so it cannot escape) the coon.
