Smilely's Rambo ll

I know Rambo produced a lot of really nice dogs and shows up in a lot of pedigrees.
With that being said I've never heard much about the dog himself, how he operated or his strong or weak points?
What was he known for putting into his pups?
Any info would be great.
Thanks

Grnitech grch pr smiley's blue rambo 2
Total pups produced 612
Total pups registered 484
Sc 50
Gs 60
Nc 42
Gn 32
Wc 1
Highlights

Of course there are other quality females bred as well but these crosses either carry high percentages or was made multiple times creating a good portion of the line we see in pedigrees today

Rambo's Flag (Jane) was breed twice. had 5 Grnitech and 2 nitech if I remember correctly. there were a few that never were put in the hunts that made great hounds. I tried buying 2 of them with no luck.
that might have been 4 Grnitech and 3 nitech. either way at least 7 of them titled out. most of these hounds reproduced nice hounds also. Grnitech Grch Hamlin's Davie Crocket HTX came from this cross. What he did in 2015 speaks for itself. Rambo's Flag (Jane), was a coon TREEING machine that hunted hard and fast. She was out of Rambo II. I'm glad that Larry and Lonnie made that cross. Jane was also on the reproducer's list.

With all that said, still nothing that answers the original question. I would love to hear some first hand knowledge on RAMBO 11 myself.

Rambo was from a good litter.
Rambo was a very good looking hound and he had all of the bells and whistles that a top hound is supposed to have.
Rambo had a good mouth and used it right however like many Slifeís Rambo dogs he didnít have to run a track to get treed.
When Rambo was hunted with the conditions favorable for scent in the air currents he could tree coon all night like a cur dog and the next night he could do an outstanding job of running and treeing coon.
Rambo II was a balanced dog that displayed better than average ability along with above average looks, class and mouth that most demanding hunters of any breed would be happy with.

Thank you very much, thatís the kinda info l believe Dave was looking for, & I sure wish I could have seen him tree a few.

Thank you for the information, any one else hunt with him that would share their thoughts and experiences?

Never hunted with him but have a lot of Cl. Rv. Diamond Jim blood in my potlickers and of course, he was sired by Rambo II.
I see above average confirmation; tight hided dogs with good feet and legs. The offspring out of Jim and Curlee like to run with their heads up more like a running dog. While they can make good coondogs, they really like cats and if given the choice, would rather run a bobcat over a coon. I am not sure this is true with all of the Rambo II dogs but when crossed with my Upson Blue Boy II and heavy Smokey River Chief breeding that's seem to be what you get.
I use them on lion as well and they need to mature a little before they learn to slow down and work a bad track. Some of the pups are a year old or more before they really turn on so I would say that they are a little slow to start.
Adios,
Gary

Thanks for the info Gary, good to hear the strengths and weaknesses.
Gary
Just want to say love the show, unfortunately being up here in Canada it's not available.
I used to watch it on dish network and miss the adventures and the hounds.
Keep up the good work and hopefully someday it will be available up here.

Dave, I just inked a deal with Wild Television Network for the first and second quarters of 2021. We will be airing 13 episodes on Wild so you will be able to view if you have the channel. You can also download PursuitUP on any smart device and view many episodes over the last several year on demand.
Thanks and Adios,
Gary
