How would some of you in the know describe the running style, speed, etc. of dogs that compete and place in these trials?

]FB,
There are a lot of guys who go to more trials than we do but here is my thoughts. Straight down the line is a must. Speed is optional. Do not over run the line. The dog has to do its own work. I would venture to say when they put the winners on the table they will be med. speed. maybe an upper med. or two. If you run 6 on speed I think you are ok. Blackjack, otis types and blackcreek types do very well. A running joke I have heard at the trials. " If you want to be in the band have a black and tan." To sum it up jump the rabbit , run the line , get the check. We are rebuilding our kennel with otis, buck and cotton country to run ds. I have a real good female that is great for rabbit hunting that is just to fast for ds. She will over run the line but catches her mistake before the other hounds catch her. You have got to run the line.
Come run one you will see good hounds and meet great folks. A little Miss. or La. cooking is always worth the drive.

Thanks rosco. That sounds like the style dog that I like. Ive heard the dogs were pretty strong and that they let em get away with over running the line as long as they cleaned it up.

Id like to try some of em this fall. Mississippi and Lousiana are alot closer to me than most of the other SPO trials.
