Default Another Coonhound Question....

I didn't want to hijack the blue tick thread, so I made myself a new one

I've always had an interest in coonhounds, but recently my friend rented some land next to a guy that breeds various types of hounds-he's had black and tans, walkers, redbones, beagles, and plotts out at his place--they are all kennel and/or tether kept dogs. These dogs bark like CRAZY. There are times when they will bark for hours while we are there. There is one individual that we have nicknamed "The Water Torture Dog" because his bark is so steady, consistent, and constant that it's like Chinese water torture.

Since experiencing this, DH says no hounds ever. However, in our situation we have 2 other dogs and live in town with a fenced yard. Any dog we had would be a house dog--going outside for recreation, exercise and potty but living inside with us.

For those that have lived with hounds/coonhounds, what is the noise level like? Are they normally constant barkers or are the above mentioned coonhounds just loud due to their living situation? Also, what kind of coonhounds would do best for someone who has never had a hound before?
