If you think that is to far, then It would be a good cross with Cooter Joe. I just have not seen any pups off him yet. I have seen several from Shooter and Deacon and they are NICE with plenty of HUNT, GRIT, and LINE CONTROL.
I had a brother to cooter joe - same dam but mine was out of Reaper. Nice dog, I have a litter of pups coming out of him. the bitch line these dogs are out of is awesome! I did a littel research and Gass's chopping penny pops of in several places. I also have a derby male out of Deacon and a blackjack bitch that I got a couple of weeks ago. I really like what I see with him so far. I dont think you could go wrong with either of those two dogs from what I have seen. A wise man once told me that hed rather be lucky than good any day so Good Luck!
Im not trying to talk you out of a dog if thats the one you want to breed to but Leonard Robinson has an Otis FC that probably isnt 30 miles from you.
Ive got some pretty decent dogs sired by him including a male that it would take way more to buy than a sane person would be willing to spend for one his age and Randy McMillin has a female that has one win in SPO and maybe a place or two. Im sure there are others that I dont know about.
Ive seen him run several times and even tried to get Leonard to price him to me but he wont do it. He's pretty much got it all imo.
I forgot that Jeff Williams has him right now conditioning him for a hunt this weekend. Sorry. :smack:
I talk to Leonard almost every day and I think he's gonna bring him home after the hunt. Depending on her cycle next Saturday would only be a week so it might still work out for you. If your afraid youll time it wrong you could take her to Jeff's and let him keep her a few days then Leonard could bring her back with him.
Since neither one of em are on this site (that I know of anyway) Ill go ahead and say that both of em are pretty good guys and will work with you to help if they can. Just dont tell em you heard that from me.
