Re: 2015 NBC Triple Challenge Show Winners

Hey daddy Rabbit How are you there Old Timer? Hope all is well with you and your hounds. In 2006 I went up to the National Beagle club in Aldie,Virginia to participate in their Triple Challenge weekend. I met Joe Hester and his wife Courtney and I believe this was their first time at this hunt as it...

Re: less rabbits

There are those hunters that I would consider ethical sportsmen and those that aren't.Not that hard to tell the difference. Seems to me that 80 men gathering at a bar to see how many rabbits they can go out and kill would grate on a lot of true sportsmen's sensibilities. Kind of like finding a big d...

Re: dogs didnt tie while mating

There was a Little Pack Grand Rabbit Champion in middle Tn. some years back that was bred a fair amount.His owner told me in his later years that he couldn't make a successful tie but still was getting them bred. ??

Re: less rabbits

Rabbit population here in east Tn. seems to be good and can't say I've noticed any difference in the past couple of years. Got a couple of places that I only run and never gun.They tend to be small and hold a few rabbits but I can always get a couple runs there. Have a couple of W.M.A.'s nearby that...

It was a beautiful 60 degrees.The beagles showed out in a way to make me proud and the boys had a ball and were able t...

Re: Run to catch

The Z-Man is now 30 and getting a fair amount of gray on his head and face. I started going gray when I was mid 20's and turned 68 a couple of weeks ago. Good grief! How'd I get this old this fast? Seems like just yesterday I'd be delivering the Worcester Telegram on my morning paper route before sc...

Re: Run to catch

Here's Zack with a couple of long runners that to my way of thinking ran very similar to the northern hare.Had several that took the dogs about out of hearing. Almost no briars in the Delta which after hunting Tennessee where EVERYTHING seems to have thorns was a nice relief except they have a thick...

Re: Run to catch

My son Zack and I got back yesterday from spending 5 days down in the Mississippi Delta hunting swamp rabbits with my four beagles. You might think that the 1,000 mile round trip to run / hunt some rabbits is a bit much but it was a great time hanging out with Zack and the swampers are almost the eq...

Re: running bred females

I usually can see signs of being bred by the 5'th-6'th week. At that point I will run them some solo for a couple of hours.I don't run them with other hounds where they may try to be competitive or get pulled too hard. You want to keep your bred female in good shape before she whelps as it will make...

I'm hoping it was a successful trip. This is a cross I've been considering for a while.I've run / gun hunted with Spook half a d...

Re: Bloodline???

Bloodline??? I don't know how to define the term although I think we all know what we mean when we use it. Or do we? Kyle and Philip Onstott in their book "The New Art of Breeding Better Dogs" use the term "strain" and define it thus-----" A more or less numerous family of the same breed,members whi...
