GRNITECH 'PR' Uchtman's So. Blue Hawk

For this week’s stud dog, we are shifting over to the blue side. Bluetick that is. And while GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Blue Hawk hasn’t produced the most puppies for the bluetick breed like Lipper and Rooster had for their respective breeds, he does have the most titled dogs on his resume similar to Ace that we highlighted last week.

Hawk was born in May of 1981 and was owned by Lonnie Uchtman of Missouri. Hawk’s first litter was born in July of 1983 while he was just two-years old and he was bred steadily until his last litter was born in January of 1990. With all the notable Bluetick hounds that have the name Uchtman attached to them, I wasn’t surprised to see one on the Top Reproducer’s list.

Hawk’s 2nd litter to hit the ground helped establish him as a reproducer right off the bat. This litter, born July 13, 1983 out of Hawk and NITECH GRCH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue Cheater produced 13 pups with 5 of them finishing out to NITECH or better. Those titled dogs include, NITECH ‘PR’ Wallis’ So. Blue Drum, GRNITECH CH ‘PR’ Perdue’s Blue Lite, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Blue Eagle, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Blue Jackie, and GRNITECH GRCH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Blue Jessie. Later that same year, still as a two-year old, Hawk produced a litter of 7 pups with ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue Sack that saw 4 of them finish out. Those dogs were, NITECH CH ‘PR’ Wilt’s Blue Hawk, NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Sandy, NITECH ‘PR’ Reidy’s Blue Joleen, and NITECH ‘PR’ Sinor’s So Blue Jane.

In May of 1984 Hawk’s reproduction numbers continued to rise as a litter hit the ground out of him and NITECH ‘PR’ Stowers’ Blue Sadie Mae that had 4 of the 7 pups finish with a hunt title. Those dogs were, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Jones’ Boeuf River Hawk, GRCH GRNITECH ‘PR’ Stoney Creek Blue Lite, NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue Thunder, and GRCH GRNITECH ‘PR’ Hartwick’s Bluesky Lesa. It is important to note that at this point, I have mentioned 3 of Hawk’s first 5 litters. For the record that is 16 of 30 puppies from his first 5 litters attaining a nite hunt title. No wonder he became such a popular reproducer.

Fast forward just a couple of months and another notable litter was born in July of 1984 out of Hawk and NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue Bell. Out of the 10-pup litter, 6 finished to NITECH or better. Those 6 were, NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtmans So. Blue Lacy, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue B.A., NITECH ‘PR’ East Texas Blue Rambler, NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Bl. Jack, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Dump Road Eazy, and CH GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So Blue Hawk Jr. This same cross out of Hawk and Bell happened again in February of 1987 and produced another 10 puppies with 4 of them finishing out. Those four were, NITECH CH ‘PR’ O’Neal’s Blue Locket, NITECH ‘PR’ Jet’s Belle Star, CH GRNITECH ‘PR’ Poudre River Bl. Kari, and the young dog Lonnie has on his ad with Hawk below, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s Blue B.J. Bell whelped 38 pups with 14 of them earning titles. Impressive!

Though I could mention many more litters, I am going to conclude this week’s article with these two litters from 1989. In January of 1989 Hawk and GRNITECH CH ‘PR’ Russell’s Blue Misty produced a litter of 11 pups with 7 pups finishing out. Those dogs were, NITECH GRCH ‘PR’ Hubbard’s Mid-Ohio Dozer, NITECH ‘PR’ Dark Hollow Doc, NITECH ‘PR’ Uchtman’s So. Bl Kitten, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Prairie Creek Blue Kitty, NITECH ‘PR’ Russell’s Blue Dee, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Little Lady, and NITECH ‘PR’ Blue Belle. Later that year in May of 1989 a litter out of Hawk and NITECH ‘PR’ Smiley’s Rock Ann hit the ground with 6 of the 12 pups finishing out. Those dogs were, GRCH GRNITECH ‘PR’ Hall’s County-Line Hank, GRNITECH GRCH ‘PR’ Smokey River Blue Thunder, NITECH ‘PR’ Smiley’s Blue Dominek, NITECH ‘PR’ Smiley’s Blue Zeus, GRNITECH ‘PR’ Leech’s Blue Frosty, and NITECH ‘PR’ Leech’s Patch.

Maybe a different litter. But there was also GrNtCh Choctaw Rambo that was out of the Hawk/Russels Misty' cross.
These dogs have such genetically fixed traits that they reproduce on just about everything they are crossed on.
I got my first Uchtman bred hound in the 80's
She is in many pedigrees today.
She was out of the Uchtmans Lacy female in your article that I later bred to Mid Ohio Dozer also named in your article. Wonderful coonhound that also reproduced .
Also owned a female out of the Choctaw Rambo that was Dozers brother.
This line of dogs are intelligent, natural tree ,and early starting.
Real nice balanced line.
