Never had a bluetick, but we had a Plott hound for about twelve years. (If you don't know Plotts, here's a good read: The Plott hound, the ninja warrior of dogdom. )

For the first couple years, she was a challenge. (That's being generous.) Among other things, she would bolt at any opportunity. Not intentionally but she had too many opportunities. 15 minutes after she disappeared I'd get a call - often from a couple miles away and across the river.

Something clicked after about three years and she matured into an excellent, loyal family dog. I'd say it was worth it and my family would probably agree, but those first few years were pretty rough.
