A little background info on Kraken.
My partner Grant Whitmer started hunting him at 4 and a half months old. He couldn't believe his eyes when he pulled up treed split his second night in the woods. From then he started taking him with his dad Main Street Blue. At 5 months old he was getting treed on a regular basis.
I told Grant to please bring him to me here in Ohio. When he turned 7 months old Grant brought him to me. The first night hunting him I knew I hadn't personally seen a pup do any of the things he was doing. I hunted him for a few weeks and entered him in his first PKC cast and UKC at 8 months old in 25 degree weather and a full moon. He treed the only coon seen in both casts.
By 10 months old he was a Nite Ch and hadn't been in a cast where it was above freezing.
As the weather improved he began treeing coon with greater speed and finishing tough old tracks with a coon at the end.
He is the most accurate dog I have ever turned loose even as a 1 year old.
By 15 months old He was a Grand Nite scoring over 550 plus in an hour 2 times and over 350 3 times. In his 8 CH cast wins he didn't take a single minus point and only had 4 circle trees while totaling over 3000 plus points.
At 18 months old we won a early cast at the PKC World hunt the only night I hunted him.
Since he was 12 months old he has hunted like a 3 or 4 year old veteran dog. Come see him go and see if what he has can get you excited!
