i used to live close to gary and hunted with him a lot. gary might had kept jukebox at carls some when he was young i dont ever remember that, they were good friends and hunting buddies. but his name was choctaw chief, becasue gary got him from an indian man in tenn. the dog, as far as i know was never owned by carl. gary called him brownie it was just a nickname. then when chuck bought him they called him the jukebox. whatever you want to call him he was a good dog.
Carl never owned the dog as far as I know. Rather, he was apparently dropped off at Carl's for a little hunting/tuning by a local fella. The local fella came back a little while later and retrieved the dog. Next time Carl saw the dog, was when Deaton brought him down here to MS for one of the first OMCBA World Hunts in the Delta in the early 1990's. Deaton evidently presented the dog to Carl as "Choctaw Chief," to which Carl replied something to the effect of: "Well, Gary that might be his name now, but when he was at my place, the fella that owned him then called him 'Brownie'."
That's the story as best I remember Carl telling it to me a couple of years ago.
