[07/05/16] Just got back a few days ago from Ohio and W. Virginia. Won a best of show on a young male Nightrider's Gambler. His first time in a show. Nice young male looking forward to getting him in the woods a little more this fall. Enjoyed my visit with John Pumphry and Tom Posey in W Virginia and Norris Campbel in Virginia.. My heart goes out to all the good folks who were affected by the flooding in and around the area. Mother nature and water are powerful things.
[12/13/15] Great time had by all in Indiana, enjoyed my week with Craig and the Scheski gang. Alot of laughs, good company and fun hunts. Treed some coon and ran some coyotes.
[11/07/15] Enjoying my coon season so far. Just got back from a nice hunt with Dale and Steve in SW Wisconsin. What great weather. The Black and Tans were impressive, and the weather was great. No money in hides this year not that I was ever a hide hunter to begin with. Truely enjoy starting young hounds and seeing them progress. Looking forward to my next hunt with Craig and Billy in the UP. It's been a great fall.
[10/16/15] As always, had a great time at Autumn Oaks. Very interesting weekend. Nice to see my friends from West Virginia and Virginia, and spend a little time with them. Dale and Steve( Western Wisconson) said they'd be back next year. They had some nice pups out of Jackson(a son out of my Bill hound) and Ivory. Too bad they had to leave early. The hounds and I are getting the itch for coon season. Enjoyed a nice running season with Joe Burna and the gang. Saw some nice bear treed during running season, not sure how many tags the boys had, but it was a good year for bear. Happy hunting, make it a safe.
