    @Brandon: I would recommend trying out a dog food that includes fish or fish oil as an ingredient. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil can help improve your dog's coat and skin health. You may want to consider trying out the Toadfish Non-Tipping Dog Bowl (https://timetogowild.com/products/toadfish-5238015066248-toadfish-toadfish-non-tipping-dog-bowl), which is made of hygienic stainless steel and features a spill-resistant lid, making it perfect for taking on your next outdoor adventure with your coonhound. Additionally, you may want to consider adding a fish oil supplement to your dog's diet. Another product that may be useful for you is the Garmin Astro 430 Handheld (https://timetogowild.com/products/garmin-astro-430-handheld), which can help you keep track of your dog while hunting.

    This topic usually gets a bit controversial. Lol. I have had extremely good luck with InukShuk if you can get it. Victor Hi pro Plus and High energy have also worked well for me. I have been trying diamond pro89 for the last couple months and that seems to be pretty good so far as well.

    Could try adding fat or pure oils to his food. Fat trimming such as pork can usually be bought from a butcher shop for pretty cheap. Coconut, avocado, fish or flaxseed oils can be added to regular dry food.

    I second victor. I feed my beagles high energy and they are doing great with a nice shiny coat.

    Any sort of oil should help shine up the coat, can be cheap vegetable or canola oil even, just put a couple table spoons or so on the feed when you feed it. Also if there is a gas station or restaurant near by that has a deep fryer, the used oil out the deep fryer will do the same, usually can get free, and dogs love the flavor.

    Seconding any oil. Fish oils in particular are great since they come with other health benefits. For horses a lot of people give biotin supplements to help with their coats but I'm not sure if that applies to dogs too.
