So, what we’ve done here is solicited a cross that I’m almost positive the “old school rabbit hunter” can appreciate. Without further ado.. in search of the ‘better beagle’ I’m always looking to implement the very oldest of the oldest (RABBIT DAWGS) and bring them together in the whelping area. This cross was solely based off one female bred over 20 years ago... HOF LPRGCH Pine Mtn Chester’s DAM: Dandy Run North Star! Having spoke to a very personal lean-to being that of, Mr. Rufus Stewart (Pine Mtn Beagles), we feel nothing less than sure of this litter. Not claiming to have reinvented the wheel, just giving it another SPIN! I’m a small kennel owner that raises roughly a litter to two litters in a year. Here I may keep a pair of gyps and let the rest go as this isn’t the core of our kennel’s direction. But it would’ve been absurd to miss out on a lifetime “duplicate” cross like this one. Dandy Run North Star was the result of FC Northway Spur bred back to a daughter of the infamous FC Birch Lake Texas T (Birch Lake Mrs T). The Sire (47% FC Northway Spur) of this litter is HANDS DOWN a rabbit Dawg!!!! SOLID HUNT, an excellent nose and a check master! The Dam (39% FC Birch Lake Texas T) is that of my own and as good of a gyp as ANY real dogger would desire to collar. GOOD HUNT, well above average nose, and can TURN OUT of a ‘bobbling (unsure) pack’ of hounds like nobody’s business. If you’re interested call or PM me for pricing: (984) 215-9714 . Pups will be due around the last week of this month! Our kennel is known for producing and making rabbit hatterz available. Get some! I’m an open book, so ask away!!! Thanks to ALL for the warm welcomes to the board and interest.

Now, be sure to checkout the promo video of this cross we made on YouTube:

i know this is a beagle board but i would be interested in seeing your bird dogs
LOL the few I do have now is just that... FEW, lol. Haha! But I used to carry quite a bit of the original Black Hawk blood of old man Dean Lord’s (TX) and Bob’s ole Elhew Snakefoot hound. I’ll definitely dig up a few and post for sure. 👍 Thanks again!

i have a 15 acre running pen full of serecia---sage grass and briars and chic peas----it keeps worrying my mind to raise some quail and turn loose in there and get a pointer or setter pup

I’d say go for it! But I tell you what would really bring you great pleasure in something like that... a SOLID Brittany Spaniel!! Those have to be some of the grittiest and most “underrated” little boogers on the market, lol. That was my late grandfather’s go-to dog. I mean he believed in the Brittany haha. Go for it though! Only live once, Sir! 👍

Most pointers today would cover your 15 acres in about 60 seconds, especially the field trial variety. A closer working Brittany or a close working Setter might be better. I don’t know if you could be successful raising quail on 15 acres unless the cover outside your pen was sufficient to protect and feed them. They might not stay in your pen if they felt pressured. I have hundreds of acres of quail habitat around my farm and had a good population until about 8-9 years ago. The grouse and quail are as scarce as hen’s teeth in Ohio today. Birds of most types are in significant decline, especially grassland species.

I had 3 Brittany spaniels that had FC Kansas Renegade Kid as their grandfather, 3 of the best birds dogs I have ever own. I have a GSP now and when she is gone I will get another Brittany. Took them to Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa, they pointed pheasants that the hard hitting Pointers ran by. Truly amazing.

Mr. Will, 2 friends of mine and myself went to Kansas to hunt pheasant, I took 2 Brittanie's and a Patch beagle. Jim brought a pointing lab- which was pretty cool to see point a pheasant. George brought a buddies English Pointer.
While pheasant hunting we came into covey of Quail, all dogs pointed, birds went up 10 or more I shot one of the Quail, the Pointer went to the bird and picked it up, I was calling her, she stopped and stood there. She made 2 quick gulps and ate the Quail, went to the other birds that was down and ate the last two that were shot.
I stayed away from the Pointer for the rest of the time we were there.
Heck, we would have starved to death if she kept eating the birds, she even tried it with pheasants. Had to sprint to the bird before she got there. She never retrieved a bird. JMO
