I prefer the Branko & Northway bloodlines, just because they produce some fine blueticks. We are a bluetick kennel, so we have limited bloodlines to choose from. Branko & Northway beagles were originally hare hounds, but were brought into the U.S. to increase the speed in the beagles. Hope this information was helpful, Hunter Hall.
P.S.- If you Google Branko's beagles, there will be plenty of kennel names that pop up, including the Branko's kennel website. The same thing goes for Northway, except there is no Northway kennels website.

Branko's line goes back to the 70's. If you want to run UKC hunts, I would recommend Branko or some kind of hare hound breeding, crossed over the White River line.

there are many different bloodlines its according to what kind ya want do you plan on trialing or hunting or both there are different types of trials ya really need to know what kind of dog you want before you decide on a certail bloodline go to some different types of trials if you plan on trialing your beagle then decide the type of dog that will please you its kinda hard to tell ya what bloodline is the best till you know what you are going to do with the dog if its strictly for hunting you dont need no wind splitters that pushes the rabbit you only see a blur when it comes out of the brush

re

I agree with the branko/northway. We also have a great male Northway Bred (also a blue dog) and also many others. I have the peds all the way back to the 50's on most of them, back to some blue cap stuff on others. I am a firm follower of this blood.

Most of what I raise now came from Dexter Reffett in Ky. He has raised these hounds for 30 years... same blood... same line the whole time. He raised the Buzzsaw dog of lynn's (world champion) and lord knows how many other champs.. and just all around rabbit dogs. Now for the most part we raise our own and continue the same blood. I seek the man's opinion on some crosses.

If you choose to go with registered stock (akc) then check breeders before you buy. Just like I said Northway and Branko... but those are back in pedigree's, most of it now are hounds that have been bred down from those grand hounds of the past. Right now I have a male in my kennel that carries the northway name, direct out of Northway Slim Jim. He is the only pure Northway here at my house.

People talk all about the backyard super dogs.. and all that is well and good, but unless you have raised your grade hounds for many generations then you are throwing some darts on the breeding program, you don't know the traits (health and otherwise) that could be getting passed along. This does not at all lean to the fact that breeding paper to paper makes hounds, but it guides you when you are breeding good hound to good hound, and you know what their parents were and theirs ect. I have spoken to Paul in Ny about Northway hounds of the past, Krypan Branko on his hounds... find out what was flash and what was just word of mouth.


Choose what you want, hunt several out of a line and see what you think. Some of these long lines have been around so long for one reason.... it works.... they produce hounds.. and produce traits that that owner wants.

Just my thoughts...

indian Hills

you might want to do a search of some of the old Indian Hills kennels in Kentucky. it was started back about 1975 or so by mr. R.B. Sester. many many field champions have come from that line. mr. sester is still breeding altho he has slowed down, at seventy years old, on the trialing.

I know this is an old post but I don't think Dexter raised Buzz or was even the breeder on him. I think a guy by the name of Delmer Thornsbery was the breeder. It's Dexters Cousin I think. Dexter did have Buzz in his starting pen when Lynn went and baught him at around 8-9 months though. Can't argue Dexter did have some influance on the breeding behind Buzzsaw though.

We have mostly Branko some Northway and one dog that goes back to Primetime/Buddys Iron Eagle. In our opinion these are the BEST bloodlines. As far as Mags you can get the American Beagler or Better Beagling.

You can check out our website at
www.blueridgemtnkennels.weebly.com

We have a GRHBCH and HBCH that are Branko our Primetime female is also a HBCH and 2 other Branko females that need a 1st place to be HBCH in UKC.

What is the best bloodline?

As we all know there are many different bloodlines in the beagling world and a few can trace lineages back for decades. With that being said, there are Good AND Bad in all bloodlines, but the most important thing to do when selecting yourself a rabbit dog you must ask yourself what style of dog do you want. Just like abunch of the gentle men said, Northway and Branko are two fine bloodlines that usually throw an upper medium speed dog with above average hunt and the northway are usually tight mouth and so are some of the branko but with some of the newer breeding you need to watch out for looser mouthed dogs. And the REFFET's bloodline that was mentioned also goes back to Northway hounds. Then indian hills bloodline such as Indian hils Major or Indian Hills Trapper also threw some fine hounds that are leggy with usually gud foot speed, but some tend to be a bit rattle headed, but still all around a good bloodline. ALSO other bloodlines that are good for UKC format are Ranger Dan, Dingus Macre, Round Pond Mr. T, Mark V Ace in the Hole,and Haunted Hill Shaker are just a few more of the bloodlines that one might consider when looking for a prestigous AKC bred hound. But also you might try looking at a UKC bloodline that has come to the scene in the last ten to fifteen years and that is the White River bloodline with dogs such as Tuff E' Nuff, Big Jake, Cane, Striker, and more. Its a big decision when purchasing a rabbit dog so take your time and review all your options.
