Here's one circa 1950s. Guess you could call it "First Coyote Hound." Ole Jack could get'er done!

This is my current dog, but I figure I'd show him off just the same. These two pics are actually from today.

Well i have been telling DoubleCK that i would put up some old pics for quite some time now, well i finally got around to digging through some old pics and figured i would dig this one up and share. Hopefully some of you will join in.
I have lots of them so i will try to spread them out some. These are all pics of pics, so the quality of some aren't the best.

Start from the beginning, this is my first hound that i raised and trained. I had always claimed my dads hounds, but this was my first. Zeek.

This one wasnt a hunter obviously but loved the same. Me, my dad, and our ebd katie, doing the fastest dog in the world trick! lol.

This is one of my dads hounds, he was one of my fav's and i usually handled him on hunts.

And a pup i called Hammer. He also gree into a heck of a hound.

Here is hammer and his dad Sam at the AKC world hunt. This is the night that Sam was crowned World Champ Treeing Walker.

What dog man can resist this thread??

Here is a photo of my old Black and Tan on his last lion tree. The dog was 15 years old at the time. While the younger dogs got hung up on the dry ground and crusty snow that day, like he had done countless times during his career, ol' Buster figured it out and caught the lion on his own. RIP Buster 3/25/1989-9/17/2004

All right, here's a few more. This is another i raised. We took him and some of his brothers and sisters to "autumn oaks" one year along with his daddy Sam. Kindof a sampler of what to expect from our stud i guess. Well they all came home with parvo. We lost all but three of that litter, he was one of the lucky ones.

Well one morning it was just like he was cured, and a puppy again. He came tearing out of the bathroom where we were nursing him and ran smack into my sisters big tom cat snickers. He decided to try the cat but didnt have the lead for it, and the cat laid him open about two inches on top of his head. For a while that pup was scared to death of the cat. Then they became best friends. I sold this hound to a guid in New Mexico by the name of Keith Riley. Told me later that he wouldnt touch a cat track, but turned out to be the best bear dog he had owned.

Rhino. He was a coyote hound banned from all the pens around here. Coyote never fared well if they stopped on him. I have a couple younger hounds out oh him. They have big shoes to fill.

Awesome pics guys!

This Beagle cross was my "Best Dog Ever" for a long time. As a youngster that dog, Tim and I terrorized furry critters along the Frenchman River Valley with Gusto! Just a Boy and his Dog. 1960s.

Those are sure good memories aren't they DoubleCK. Some of my favorite hunts and memories took place when it was just me and a hound in the woods. I got this Mountain cur on a trip me and dad made to north Carolina. She would keep up with the hounds at night, then tree squirrels all day the next day. She had no quit. She got hunted every single day. Just her and me, i wasnt even old enough to buy a hunting license yet, but i had a trail through that wheat behind her leading streight to the woods where we hunted.

I ended up selling her, got tired of squirrel hunting, and got this little beagle. This dog started my fascination of running dogs. I made alot of good memories with her. She was one of a kind, and will never be replaced.

Here's an old pic of Dad's Kennels. Circa 1966. That's Mike. One of the best we ever ran. Treed lot's of coons, won some night hunts and treeing contests.

When I was 10 dad and I dug up a den and got some coyote pups. Here is me with Kelli the coyote.



Here is Kimber and Pieces, 2 days after I got Pieces home(pieces is the puppy). I lost Kimber in a atv wreck a year and a half ago. It was like loosing a child.

I buried Blitzen last week.
I never had a better friend.





Blitzen and Sugar in better days:

I miss her too.....



Watch dog, baby sitter, raccoon and coyote fighter, he'd even watch your rod tip while you napped and bark when you got a bite.

Helluva bird dog too....



....you just had to keep a close eye on him while you were cleaning birds.



I'm gonna miss the old boy. He turned 13 in January.

my old lab Gunner. this was his last phesant hunt. he fluched this bird out of a small cattail slough and i winged it. he was SO exausted trying to find it but would not give up. he finally pushed it out where i could ground shoot it. we sat down for a bit to let him rest. was real tough on me and i did a bit of tearing up on the way to the truck knowing that this was his last bird. he was put down a week later.




heres Tucker. got him as a stray. he was the worst dog i'd ever been around but with some time/work, he turned into a great dog. he was just getting good at decoying when he got Lymes and had to be put down.

Good looking dog. Is he an American Bulldog? I have an American that looks similar.

Man, that story and pic just about made me tear up reading it. What a great looking dog. I have a dog right now that has worked his way into my brain, and I don't know how I am going to deal with it when he is on his last deer hunt.

Not for me... I like dogs better than people.
