BO

Took BO to a UKC RQE last night in Louisiana. Told Beverly before Christmas that I wanted to do something I have never done before and thatís to hit the hunts hard this year. We kicked it off last night with our first hunt and Bo won the cast and was High Scoring Dog of the Hunt, winning the Plaque for First Place. We scored on 3 Coons seen under the Bright, Full, Super Snow Moon with no leaves on the trees. While the other dogs were not hunting and treeing slicks and possums, Bo was putting Coons up. Darren Willams, aka Sleepy, placed Second with Redstick Ann. She is Roseíes dam. He bred her to BO almost 3 years ago. Rose is in Illinois right now treeing Coon in the Snow. Her parents did her proud last night. Lot of hunts coming up the next few weeks and we gonna give them all a shot. Now that heís Qualified for the World Hunt, I want to get 4 more wins and get Qualified for the Tournament of Champions which is a great thing UKC has done. BO is the dog tied out back behind the barn you always hear about. We fixing to Show Out.

BO

Took BO out for a round last night and he went 2 for 2 in 37 minutes. Feeder track on the first one and struck off the leash on the next one which was a hot, less than 200 yard track. We have had such warm wet weather the past two months the leaves are right at the bursting point of appearing on the trees. Another month and the easy to find Coon wonít be so easy to find anymore.

BO

Bo went 2 for 2 again the other night and 3 for 3 in less than two hours last night. Flooded Seamps and timber. Took ROO with him last night and she went every time I cut him and treed on the last tree which was a hot track. These two pups have the Giddy Up that most do not. 7 months old and taking to the swamps like old pros. Going to keep hunting them this spring and summer until I decide which one I will push this Fall. Might be the hardest decision Iíve had to make in a long time because I really like both of them that much. Congrats to all the ones that won at the Winter Classic and took the time to tell me Congrats on Boís Win and getting Qualified for the World Hunt. Kyle Bush Of Coon Hunters suits me just Fine. Itís what Fuels me and Bo, the dog tied out behind the barn.

All three

Took Bo and both pups tonight. When cut they left like shot out of a cannon and soon struck a hot track at 152 yards. Ran it over 200 more and hit the tree. Bo and ROXY were knocking the top out. Roo was there and treeing just not as hard as ROXY was. It was something to hear echoing up out of that swamp bottom. They had the Coon and I knocked it out to them. Only the second track and tree the pups have been in on and they have treed on both and got to pull some fur. Gonna make some fine ones and going to be fun watching them mature and get better all summer long.

2 for 2

Bobby Gates II came down for a hunt last night. We had two inches of rain all day and itís a flooded mess in the woods. He had Tabby and I took my pup ROXY. I used to own Tabby. Sheís off Bocephus and a sister to the Bam dog I used to have. Tabby is a year and a half old and has really made a nice hound. She went 2 for 2 last night and ROXY treed with her both times. Really proud of my 7 month old pup. She get a few treed by herself she will be well on her way.

Snake Bit

Went to a BBCHA Sectional the other night and BO got Snake Bit with the temperature in the 30ís. It has been warm and rainy for quite a while and I have killed several cottonmouths so I knew they were out. But with the cold front coming in I didnít think it could happen but it did. We were in Rattlesnake Country so we think thatís what got him or a Cottonmouth. Front Paw the size of a tennis ball. Needless to say we didnít have any luck, he didnít even make a tree. Garmin looked plum crazy the way he was moving and hunting, nothing normal. Venum had him screwed up bad. Giving him penicillin twice a day and Benadryl. Heís eating but itís still swollen bad. Give him a cc of Dex too. Hopefully he will be better in a few days. Another hunt coming up Saturday night that I would like to hit. Pups looking good. ROXY worked a track last night 300 yards through a lot of water and located up a few times but didnít stick. Tough track in tough conditions. Seven Month old pup doing a hell of a job and hunting out good to. Always on the move and knows that sheís got something to go find and do. Just putting it all together is fun to watch a smart pup do. Going to enjoy hunting her this spring and summer. Just ease her along and keep her progressing in the right direction then push her hard this fall and winter.

Winner!!

Took Bo back down to Louisiana last night for a competition hunt. Itís been one week since he was snake bit on his right front paw. Was still limping a little but not to bad. He won his cast by being split near the end with the Coon. 75 yards from the other hounds that got circled up. They had scored on a Coon early in the hunt but Bo got them at the end. So far 3 hunts entered in 2020 and Bo had 2 wins and the other hunt he was Snake Bit. A first place at an RQE and last night second overall. Just missed winning the Light they were giving away to high scoring dog by 50 points. The dog tied outback behind the barn is on the loose and having fun. Another hunt next weekend. Be qualified for the Tournament of Champions soon.

Bo

Thanks Mr Jack. I see old Smoke is doing a lot of winning for his new owner. I know your proud to see him getting hunted hard and pushed in the hunts and the success heís having. Does us good to see something we started as a pup grow up to be as nice a hound as Smoke whether we still own them or not.

I had 3 females that were to be bred to Bo as soon as they came in heat but I have decided not to breed him and have contacted the owners and let them know. Pushing him in the hunts I donít have time for breeding and donít need him distracted and weak in the knees like females will do to a guy or hound. I am still breeding him to one that a friend of mine owns that I had as a pup and got lightly started. Tabby. That will be half brother sister cross doubling up on Bocephus. Rose has been sold to a good guy in Illinois. She will make a name for herself up there, just wait and see. My ROXY and Roo pups are still coming on strong. As good as the most demanding Hunter could hope for. Especially ROXY. She had the potential to be Outstanding. Boís wins and these pups have me super excited. Lots of plans and lots of traveling that Iím looking forward to.

Bo

Thanks Sleepy and I will be looking forward to drawing out with you Saturday night in Franklinton. After my experience with Rose and the A I, Iím done with that. Natural or Nothing for me from now on. As for canceling the breedings, people do a lot of talking and yapping but you never know if they Serious or not. I donít have time for the BS to be honest. So I just saved myself some headache of worrying if their gyp would need to be bred when Iím on the road far from home at a hunt. We doing a lot of traveling this year and I have it scheduled out and I donít like changing plans. So the little dab of money ainít worth the hassel and Iím not interested in breeding to any old gyp they want to back up to Bo. Just to put out a bunch of pups in an already flooded market. Ainít my thing and never has been. Bobby Gates gonna breed Tabby but other than that Iím not breeding Bo to anything else until after the World Hunt. Two years from now when he slows down I will breed him to ROXY and get me a male pup. Hopefully I will be pushing her in the hunts by then. Hope to see you Saturday.

Bo

Took Bo to a hunt last night in Louisiana. Not much to talk about. Had a dead cast and Bo got Snake Bit again. Going to be a tough year for my boy if he donít start dodging the snakes. Next week temps will be 80 during the day and 60ís at night. Snakes gonna be bad this year for sure. Very mild to hardly no winter at all. We will try again on the 21st. ROXY still looking good. Working tracks real well and hitting the trees hard. Excited to see how she progresses over the summer. This Fall will be fun with her.

ROXY

Cayden came for spring break last week and we did a lot of fishing and hunted ROXY a few times. Looked at Coon every night we took her. Took Bo with her last night. First time heís been out since the snake bite last Saturday night. They got deep and treed one up a viney pine tree. From 500 yards ROXY was treeing so hard I couldnít hear Bo. She is the real deal. Hardest going and hardest tree dog Iíve ever had at 8 months old. Got the Giddy Up that so many are lacking these days. Hunts and trees like a three year old finished dog. Unbelievable and Iím a lucky man.

ROXY

Been hunting pretty regular and ROXY making it look easy for a 9 month old pup. Outstanding track dog that knows how to get hooked quick and accurate. Sure hope the wheels donít fall off on down the road. She keeps me wanting to go a waiting on dark every night. Finally drying up some around here and the fishing has been pretty good. Garden looking great and tomatoes are blooming. Mississippi Governor issued a Shelter In Place today. Starts 5pm on Friday for the entire month. Donít bother me any. My life rocks on normal as can be. Iíve been social distancing for Years and try to live life like God intended for people to live. Order most everything online that I need and itís delivered to the door. Was hoping to go out to Oklahoma and to the Garden of the Gods in Illinois Coon Hunting with ROXY to give her an early taste of what coons are like in different states. But that wonít happen in April. Maybe it will all be over soon and they will put people back to work before they collapse this country to the point of no return.
