4 dogs, 6yo out of rising sun line, from Ohio, 2 out of ranger Dan from NY they are 3yo and 2yo, 1yo out of buckshot mr. Bill x with some 5 star Smokey in the mix. I hunt private and public land here in NY. It鈥檚 been getting more and more difficult to find some good hunting areas but we strive. Having young dogs I have to shoot a few rabbits to show them what they are chasing but I don鈥檛 usually like harvesting them, I wanna keep good runs going. I am a member of Souther NY beagle Club. I run the dogs with garmin alpha 200 with TT 15 minis. I feed Victor performance year round. Very happy with the product.

I keep around 20 total dogs, all AKC registered. UBGF bloodlines, mainly Five Star Smokey and Star R. (Cocoa Bear)
I try to raise 3 litters a year and keep the little males and start them as that's the class I trial. I also have an old birddog I try to take a time or two a year to a hunting preserve.
I have fed Tops and Value Pack the past two or three years. Before that I fed Purina for 30 years.
I Hunt and run on public land. Since I started participating in AKC SPO field trials 12 years ago I only get to hunt about 6 times a season.

Phillip Mayhew
South Central VA
2 - 13" males
8 - 13" females
1 male puppy (probably go <13")
I run a SPO or a touch stronger pack and love the little dogs. Most are Bear/Flat Creek/Bullocks Creek/Shaker bred.
I am a gun hunter first and foremost and always will be but am getting more involved in trialing.
I have Garmin 100 & 200 with TT15mini's.
Feed The Pride 24/20 for years now. Long enough for it to go from $18/bag to $32/bag.
My wife and young son are very interested and involved too. Hoping he and his baby brother will fall right into it as I am.

Anybody in this area ever want to get up and listen to the dogs run shoot me a message! Hoping to get out to the rabbitdogs.net hunt next year and put some faces with names work and weather permitting!

Usually keep to many but I love running and listening to my dogs. Mr. Henry Griffin and I hunt 3-4 times a year but run dogs together all the time. We will make a trial or two every year to see what we have but at the end of the day we feed what we like.

Larry Barnard/ Southern Ohio. Skullfork / Weircreek bred dogs more specifically based on old Pon Run A-Train & Boggy Holler Buddie to create our own strain / line of dogs through a co -op of friends who have the same goal in mind & that is what we call the complete rabbit dog. I keep between 10 & 15 dogs including pups at any given time & still enjoy hunting and pleasure packing as well as traveling once in awhile to different areas to hunt different terrain and rabbits. I鈥檝e been blessed to hunt not only cottontail, but snow shoe hare, blue tail & the swampers of the Deep South. What I really have enjoyed is line breeding & the challenge of breeding, training our own line of dogs that suit us & preform acceptable in every phase of hunting. My dogs are on the high side of medium speed, hunt well with the ability to jump rabbits & not cause any headaches in the process lol. I鈥檒l some it up by saying they have to find game & account for it consistently wherever or whenever the opportunity comes. I haven鈥檛 participated in any type of field trial in close to 30 years. I鈥檝e attended 2 since 1994 & enjoyed the fellowship and meeting others , my advice don鈥檛 take them to seriously.

Little did I know on my 11th bday in may of 1965 when my parents got me my first registered beagle that some 58 years later I鈥檇 still be just as Enthused now as the morning I received that little linesman/ fish creek pup. What a Journey it鈥檚 been Iv been Blessed being able to meet some of the great houndsmen and seeing some of the best hounds on the ground.
At present I have 13 females and nine males
Along with two litters of pups. One litter being 51/2 mo and the other 6 weeks Thanks to my friend Reddog and his fine program in helping me make this happen it鈥檚 been five years in the making of this cross.
Basically been line breeding since early 80s
Some of the late outcrosses iv used have been North Town Frosty x2 later his son Hitman also have used strongbow Chip off the block and strongbow Briarhill Buster to keep the hunt but add Confirmation. Like to say thanks for putting up with me I know at time I can be a little head strong lol. Dave
