Mom

Thanks Guys. My mom was liked and loved by many people and it was standing room only at the visitation. Never saw so many folks and appreciate everyone of them. The cancer got her here on earth but Gods got her now. I had a Dream after she died and I will tell of it when I get time to put it down. Right now we in Kentucky, been driving for over 10 hours and got 7 more to go. Iím not as fond of road trips as I used to be. Hurts to much.

Bo Treed the Ghost Coon!!!

We came home a couple days early from Ohio. Made one hunt in the Wayne National Forest and Bo got in theee Quarters Of a mile and treed one. Up and down 3 hills that were more like mountains. Had to slide 500 feet down one it was so steep and slick rock just under the leaves. The guy I met up there and had been talking to thru Facebook wasnít as I had pictured in my mind. Just one of those things, sometimes 2 folks just donít get along and I also felt like something else was going on that involved Bo and someone off in the Forest on a 4 wheeler. So I made the decision to get away from the area before my hound ended up stolen or I ended up in prison. Worst trip we have ever took and a lesson learned. Been treeing some at home and last night Bo treed the Albino Ghost Coon up a medium sized gnarly Turkey Pine. White as New Snow. The deer hunters have been seeing 2 white ones on their game cameras so apparently the one I saw 3 years ago is a Sow and has reproducered another white one. I left her to tree again. If Bo treed one of them again when I have Cayden or Mason and they want to take it I will let them and I will get it mounted for them. Other than that, Iím inly trying to get her treed where I can get Outstanding photographs and videos. In that pine tree I couldnít find a good spot that it would show up on my cell phone. She was almost to the very top and surrounded by pine needles and limbs but her brilliant white gave her away. 3 Years of hunting in that area trying to get her treed and it happened on the Eve of the Orange Hunters Full Moon rising Tonight. Gonna try to put her up again when it gets dark. Sleepy texted and said that Rose sister won Queen of Hunt at the Fall Roundup this weekend in Missouri. Congrats to Earl and Elmo on the Big Win. Her name is Kandy and she is off my BO and Sleepyís Ann female. Rose is just a few days away from having pups. She is due Wednesday or Thursday. Her belly isnít showing big but her chest cavity is. She has bagged up and you can squeeze milk out. Hoping for a half dozen or so Black Headed Natural Coon Treeíers.

Sad News on Rose Pups

There will be No Pups from Rose and Bocephus. She was due today. The past 2 days she had a dark brown/black discharge. Not good. Took her to Vet today and the Ultrasound showed a Mummified Pup in her. They are keeping her a few days and possibly a week, giving her shots and antibiotics to try and clean her out. If that donít work she will have to be spayed. All pups were sold before I even bred her and I was keeping a couple. Lot of disappointed folks but none as bad as we are. Beverly and I along with Mason and Cayden were really wanting these pups. Heartbreaking when you put so much time, effort and money into something like this and then get nothing. I only Pray that Rose will fully recover and cycle again so I can get pups off her one day. Iím in the market for a pup off Bocephus and a top female if anyone has any or knows of some. Prefer female pup. Me and the grand boys need a pup to tromp around with here on the River this Fall and Winter. Bo treed the Albino Coon Again last night. Hoping to get some great pictures of her soon.

Rose

Thanks Ron and Danny. Rose passed the dead Mummified Pup out of her Friday Night at the Vets. He called me late Saturday evening and said she was starting to eat again and acting better and I could come get her. Picked her up and shucked several hundred more bucks out of my wallet and brought her home. Sheís eating and drinking ok and I have her on the antibiotics he sent home for the next week. I believe she will be ok. She cycles every 9 months and should come back in around her 3rd birthday In May. We will see. I spent 1,610 bucks to get this litter of pups. Less the stud fee that should be in the mail on the way back to me, Iím still out 1,110 bucks and No Pups. Thatís Vet Bills, test done, gas and hotel expenses getting her to Alabama then back from Tennessee. And other things for the pups like worker and milk replacer, kiddie pool for whelping, etc. Oh well, thatís life of a Coon Hunter. Try again another day. Iím buying a pup that should be here on the River soon. Mason and Cayden were really looking forward to some pups, same as me. Been a year since we had a little one around. Hopefully next week the new pup Iím buying will be here. Bo had been treeing Coon most every night and looking great doing it. Rose will be back in the woods end of next week. Time to get her in shape after 3 months of being off.

Wet

September we didnít get a drop of Rain and now October it wonít stop. Rained all day yesterday but quit before dark so me and Bo went for a while. Haunted House Bottom he Treed over 700 yards deep and had the Coon. Took pictures and videos and moved to the Ghost Coons Territory. He worked a bad track and come Treed and had the Coon. Not the white one, just a regular colored Coon. Sun is out today and cooler. Be nice out tonight. Got 2 new pups coming off the Zero dog and a well bred gyp. Zero is half brother to Bo, both being off Bocephus. Iím going to start keeping a couple pups for the public each month. Anything from 3 months old to a year. They will be cared for as good as the Best and Better than Most. I am retired and have lots of time and take lots of walks along the River and woods where I live. Pups will learn to swim and handle water, the ways of the woods, riding in the Yamaha Rhino and Jet Boat, staked our and broke to lead, handled Every Day and run loose as much as possible with tracking collars on them under my supervision. They will eat Purina One, Turkey and Venison. Itís a 30/17 feed. Wormed if needed and ears get cleaned once a week and some drops put in them. They will live in insulated Sinker Cypress dog houses in a concert kennel with wood middle and upper decks. Have all the references you want on how I treat and handle pups. Guys in the cold north, you could send your pups here for the winter and they would be way ahead of the game when spring hit and you were ready to put them in the woods treeing Coon after your harsh winter was over. Iím headed to Indiana and Illinois sometimes Iím November and could pick the pup up and bring it home with me. 250 per month, 2 month minimum and that price includes Everything the pup needs except Vaccinations and Vet Care if needed. Look back through this thread I have on here and you will see how I love and care for pups and the type environment they will be in. None Better in my humble opinion.

New Pups

Beverly and I rode 8 hours round trip to West Monroe Louisiana yesterday in hard rain and picked up my 2 new female pups. They turn 4 months old today and will be ready to start after deer season is over. Bold, Outgoing, Good Looking Girls. We have a Tropical Depression that is affecting us right now and have had 6 inches of rain in the past 24 hours and right now have 50mph winds. So playing with the pups and letting them explore their new river home isnít an option today. Think I will name them Karma and Katrina. Two Bad Girls.
Ron, anytime you ready I will be glad to have your pup for a while down here. I will be at Mr Edís on November the 17th and leave for home on the morning if the 20th. You can come down and make a hunt with us one night and I can take the pup with me then if you like. It will learn a lot being out everyday for hours tromping around this river and riding with me Artifact Hunting and filling up Coon Fedders fir my pups that will be getting ready to start. Just let me know. Thanks.

Ghost Coon

Bo and Rose got after the Ghost Coon last night. I think she loves to run as much as the hounds do because she can sure lay down a track that will challenge the best of them. They drove her into the old river bed and it took them a few minutes but they got her out of there and the race was on. She went over the bank of the river then up itís side going upriver a ways then doubled back to a big sandbar. She crossed the river and Bo did to. Rose was right behind him but got swept downstream further and couldnít get up the bluff so came back to my side and I caught her up. Bo took that Coon way upriver and got treed at 0.96 miles. I drove the 2 miles home and put Rose in the kennel and loaded up in the Jet Boat. Been a couple of years since Iíve went down the river in it at night. I promised Beverly after I had my neck surgery that I wouldnít hunt out of it again but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Bo was 1.11 miles downriver from the house and we could hear him good. The search light on my boat didnít work so I had to use my Coon Hunting light to see as I drove. It was bad foggy in places and dangerous running wide open. I got down near him and tied up then walked the 537 yards on to him. Bo had her up a huge water oak and I left her to run again. Love running a Coon that loves to run and lays a tough track. Donít get on many of those kind anymore. I said a Prayer before me and Bo headed back upriver for home and as I nailed the throttle and took off, a shooting star shot by right over our heads. I knew God heard me and that was his sign we would make it home safely, and we did.

Ghost Coon

Sure sounds like a good hunt Steve. I love those good races. I don't like to have to put a boat in the river at night. I've had to do it a few times, but it sure is dangerous. There are so many snags sticking up just above the water and just below the water here on Pearl River, just waiting to rip a hole in the bottom of the boat, and I know that they are there on the Bogue Chitto River. Glad ole Bo got her treed again. I would have left her too. Take care and be careful Steve.

Illinois Road Trip

Thanks Mr. Jack, Darren and Gary. Hope you all are doing well and having fun in the woods following the Blue Hounds. I know I am. Doing better this year heath wise than I have in a while. Changed the way I was eating and added things to my diet and give all the credit to that. I follow Medical Medium on Facebook and have his books. Its about getting back to natural healing and boosting your immune system with stuff like, Raw Honey, Ginger, Garlic, Herbal Tea and Celery Juice. I bought a juicer and squeeze a bundle of celery every morning and drink 16 ounces of celery juice first thing every morning on empty stomach. It has truly made a huge difference in the way I feel and I don't have colds or sinus trouble anymore. Get away from Doctors and drug stores, they are killing us with big pharma. Go Natural and get back to what God put on this earth for us, not what man makes and profits from.

Been hunting almost every night and dogs looking good. Love my new pups and they have the best mouths on them for 4 months old of any pip I have had except Blue. Going to breed Rose next heat cycle to Blue. Both having Bocephus as Grandsire. They have been doing some winning with him and should be a Gr. Nt. soon if not already. He was as natural as ive ever had and coon crazy over scent at 3 months old. Rose didn't start that young but she is a natural and 100 percent straight on coon. Never trashed on anything. Pups out of them should be real nice, easy starting, trouble free, big mouth hounds. Headed to Illinois Sunday to hunt with Mr Ed and Caleb a few days. The Artic Blast will be Fizzled out by then and coon should be crawling like fleas on a warm hound. We gonna kill our share. Full Moon will be gone and the bitter cold. I have a feeling this will be the best trip Ever. Planning on hunting hard and as long as Mr Ed wants to stay out every night.

Illinois Road Trip

We enjoyed our trip last week to Illinois to visit and hunt with Mr Ed and Family. Looked at a bunch of coons, Deer and Eagles. Got some great pictures and saw some good hound work out of all of them. Shot down 11 to the hounds over the 3 nights of hunting. One was huge, 25 to 30 pounds I would say. Did some Antique Shopping and site seeing. Saw several good bucks running the Doeís in the daytime in the middle of open fields beside busy highways. Rut was definitely on. Got home and had a mess. Hot water heater line had busted and flooded some floors. Ran into the AC vent in the floor and filled up the Duct Work and it blew out. Had to buy new hot water heater, electric dryer, flooring, ect. It was a mess but Iím slowly getting it back to normal. Start laying the new luxury vinyl plank flooring tomorrow. Cayden came for opening day of deer season. I got one that morning and he killed his first ever deer sitting beside me that evening with my Colt AR-15. Dropped that big Doe in her tracks. Such a proud moment for both of us. Been working my pups. Staking them out, breaking to lead and hauling in the Rhino to feed the cows and horses. Loving their actions and excited to get them started this spring.

ROXY & ROO

Been hunting Bo pretty regular. Heís treeing Coon about every night. Not looking as sharp as he usually does but getting the job done. ROXY and ROO are growing and will be good sized females when grown. They will be 6 months old the day after Christmas. Wonít be long and it will be GO Time. They both have big mouths on them and really looking forward to hearing them on track and hitting some trees. Hope to have them going good by Summer Time. Have both of them broke to lead and loading in the Rhino. They love to be hauled places and get out pretty good in new woods when I take them. Very smart pups and love the water. Next month will show them a Coon and see how they react. Hope to have them running and treeing easy Coon by end of February. Going to put all my time in them once they start. If one of them looks like she is the kind I like, Rose will probably be Sold. Donít want a young hound like her just sitting while I work the pups. Bo will get out maybe once a week and will get to swim this summer so he will be fine. Hoping to breed one of these pups to Bo a couple years from now if it all works out.
