    Well as I stated in a earlier post, I am going to bred my two gyps. Both of which are sisters. Well I stuck my female fiest in the pen with them of which is in heat. Both of my gyps humped their butts off untill they came in today:clap:. It took 5 days from first putting that female in the pen with em, untill they started showing themselfs, going to have 2 litters at the same time if all goes well.:up:

    Good luck with the breedings and pups.

    I have seen most of the hounds in the back part of the pedigrees. Some great ole blood in there and some that was just good.

    Hey Blgnut, what is your favorite blackcreek hound? Did you ever get to see Ban jo run? Thanks, sounds like you have seen most of the better known hounds of the south.

    Yes I have seen Ban-Jo run several times - Nice hound - I finished a female out of him and Bulter's Jill - Sadie is the Dam in this pedigree - - I have owned several other hounds that Ban-Jo was the sire and a lot more with him in the pedigree.

    My honest opinion - When Mr Bridges brought in the Backroads Buddy dogs to breed to his females, he took a step back for his breeding programs. (well for a trialing hound - med to med plus speed) I know why he did it, cause I have talked to him several times.

    Now don't get me wrong here - Mr Bridges still produces some GREAT hound with his crosses, but it just didn't work for most SPO trials, they worked great for the TCP trials and the people that enjoyed the run hounds where the hounds would run tight and hunt, but their speed dropped down a little.

    I am glad to see Mr. Bridges got Cotton Country Stokers Ace -- -- in his kennel now and going to breed his female to him. Ace is a nice male and has a brother that finished quickly in the SPO trials.

    You are right, I have seen a LOT of different Blackcreek hounds in my short life (36 yrs old). I have followed a many hounds in the field and that is where I get 99% of my info on a hound. I am not a tailgate hound person.

    Any more info just ask,

    Hey David I agree with you.

    Last week I bred a good 9 year old double bred FC Mcnair Prince female to Bo-Dee.

    I'm breeding my Speck bitch she needs a win to FC Bo-Dee this weekend also.

    I'm also breeding a real good FC One Way's Justice bitch to Buck this weekend too. I will start trialing this female next year.

    Gonna give em a try.

    Good info bglnut. I like my dogs to run a steady rabbit, and yes throw a dip net over them all when they come through! Most of my hounds run a good upper med speed. I have had a couple that were just two slow. I will say ole Locky and Feddy both just need one rabbit, cause when their on it they are glued to it:up:

    Sorry - I have never seen him run.

    And - I do like my pack to stay TIGHT and close, but in a med to upper med speed.
