No, normanlly fee casting your bluetick, in other words taking the leash off them and let them go hunt fot a coon scent, or whatever scent them come across. Some will go for miles to hunt, some you may have to walk across scent. Some may go a couple hundred yards to pick up a scet. It varies on the dog. If they pick up scent they will take off and go run it. As far trained off the leash, that in my opinion is hard you would have to lead them everywhere you go, and may not cover enough grounf by walking them. Turning them loose, free from the leash i the best.
