Staten's Blue Samurai RIP

Heard from my good friend Jonah Staten today the sad news that his Sam dog had passed on at 10 years old. Sam was sired by World Champion and International Field Champion Greenwell's Reggie and out of Frazier's Big Shot Suzie [a line bred Jiggs female]. Sam was an outstanding rabbit hound with a rep...

Re: Run to catch

Thanks Ed. Yes she is a big girl,close to a full 15". In some ways I do miss Bomber as I had him from a pup and he is a good dog in the kennel and in the field. I don't like keeping a mixed sex kennel and dealing with that hassel and I like the personality of my girls better. I know where he is and ...

Re: Nose

Mr. Carder I too have watched some of your videos and I can definitely appreciate what your beagles are capable of. Reminds me of watching a Bloodhound work a man's track.Smelling every molecule of scent and never losing it. They are what the old timers here in Tennessee refer to as "beetles". As Ha...

Making a nice young rabbit dog that appears will have all the tools.Hearing similar things from guys that have her litter mates.Alw...

Re: Run to catch

Our gun season for rabbits is open but even so there's plenty of times during season when I'll leave the shotgun home. Sometimes it's because I just don't feel like toting it,other times cause I just don't want to kill rabbits out of the place I'm going to or like today--a small piece of ground with...

Re: pressure on a rabbit

Read the "Run To Catch" posting on here. Don't know what "too much pressure " is.
Over the past 50 years I've run hounds on most game chaseable and I ALWAYS want a hound to be putting pressure on it's game.
Constant pressure is what puts rabbits in the sack and game up a tree.

Re: Run to catch

Great pics Rowdy. Thanks for posting! Had a nice cool / wet morning today.Took all four of my females. First rabbit up was a pounder with very short checks and the girls drove him hard and to a hole after about 45 minutes. Second rabbit they could drive pretty hard but he must have been an educated ...

Re: Run to catch

BMBeagles If you are asking me if my dogs regularly catch rabbits in Jan. and Feb. the answer is no. I live here in Tn. so the snow question is often moot.We often go through a hunting season with no snow at all and when we do get 3-4" it doesn't affect my dogs at all. All my dogs are from hunting s...

Re: Hot stud dog

Harechaser You couldn't have said it better. Years ago when I lived in New Hampshire I had a pretty decent Bluetick coonhound.Never Nite hunted her in competition but she had quite a few coon knocked down to her and could do a pretty good all around job on them in most all conditions. I took a trip ...

Re: Female just comes in to heat in the spring

I have had one to come in season only once a year.Had another that went 18 months before coming back in.Have two now that will go 7-8 months between heats. Sometimes if you get them bred successfully they then will get on a regular 6 month cycle. Also something to consider...... If you are running a...
