Pete Barber texted me yesterday and said Ole Deacon had died. I had the privilege to hunt with Deacon numerous times, and he was all coondog. When you turned him loose, you had to go get him off the tree. He had coons in the tree, and he took the tracks as they came to him. He didn't run through the country trying to ambush hot coons, he could actually trail a track something that's missing in hounds today. I also had the privilege to breed my Katy female to Deacon, and she had one pup a dog that I called FrenchBroad Deacon's Preacher. I have hunted the same dogs for over 20 years, and breeding Katy to Deacon was the best decision for my breeding program that I have ever made!!!
Terry Fisher raised and trained Deacon, and Pete has had him for the past few years. You will hear about Deacon for years to come, and rightfully so, He is a legend for the ones of us that got to hunt with him!!!!!!!!!!
