made that cross for longer legged rabbit hounds ,out of two coldnosed outstanding hounds .result was athletic medium sized hounds with hot noses.the nose part kept them from being real complete hare hounds when scent conditions get to the point a good beagle shows why they excel on hares.made this same cross many years before that with an average beagle and outstanding ,but med nosed walker with the same exact results .hot nosed,athletic hounds which was why I had to try it again with the more outstanding cold nosed hounds,but it ended the same.should of probably tried breeding back to another great beagle with the offspring for more beagle genetics ,but just never did,because I heard a lot of other guys getting the same results crossing tree hounds with beagles for hare. twice was enough of a disappointment i never saw any natural treeing tendencies in the offspring I produced either .my treeing walker pups always show that naturally.my first patch beagle was everything and more than I was hopeing for in a harehound ,but I couldn't quite reproduce her either,**** beagles.lol.
