A Rabbit Hunting " We Did Go" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>

When a Coon Hunter, ask you if you want to go Rabbit Hunting, You better Go!

Last year a Good Friend, Joey Bennet ask me if I wanted to go Rabbit Hunting with him and another Coon Hunter, Ben Coggins. Why, Sure this time of year, December here in N.E.Ga. you just don't get out, Hooping and Shouting, Running through the woods, after a pack off, 8 or 10 Beagle hounds! As early in the mornings, It's Quiet time, The Deer Hunters, are way up in the top of these pines, looking around for a deer!

Well, I'm thinking if it's a trick, Halloween done come and gone, so these old boys must be serious. When we going rabbit hunting, Joey I ask?

How about this coming Friday, the 11th. you still have some them little Beagle hounds? I said sure do, but you being a Big Coon Hunter, was thinking you was going to take that Walker hound? He just grin, and said that Walker Better Not Run No Rabbit !!

So I get my Chauffer, Old "Doc" and we meet up at a good eating place, somewhere in N.E. Ga. after breakfast and a drive to a place, I never been too in my life, and I have live here in these parts, all my life, swear this was my first time ever up in this part of Ga. Mighty fine looking place, so we turn the hounds our pretty early, I had some of my old hounds, that were not wearing S.C. Pretty Boy Floyd, Flirt & Whistling Dixie. Now there was three very young hounds, Dolly, Tony, Fenny Bob, never been shoot around many times, then I had Jeb, Hambone & Blaze.

One of the best looking Swamps, I ever seen in my life, but with all this rain she was full and running over!! I would say less than 10 minutes , out of the dog box "Doc" starts to calling the hounds, as he just jumped a Swamper, he said was bigger than the Beagles!!

I was very disappointed, my hounds just didn't run those swampers at all! In fact they did the worst I have seen them in many day?? I suppose these rabbits were taking too the water, even though it was 20 degrees, they were gone, and not a race for an hour or so. Ben said lets go to a differant part of the swamp not so much water, Bingo!!

Next two rabbits both ran well and them Coon hunters, both took a pair of Swampers, fully Grown !!

Then they wanted to move, to some cotton tails. They had two rabbit running at a time for the remainder of the morning, and after Ben had took a couple more cotton tails, and Joey shoot at least one cotton tail, with his double 20, we called it a day. I never shoot my 410, and Doc just plain got Skunked!!

So Boys, if some old Coon Hunters ever ask you "Want Go Rabbit Hunting" take my advise and take them Up, you will never regreat it.

Keep Looking Up!

:DPersonally, I like the blueticks. I think I have heard Daddy Rabbit say he would never have any of those ugly bluetick dogs. lol
Somedays, though, those redticks can make those blueticks sweat and make them see RED!!!::ke:

D.R. and Doc were a pleasure to hunt with, and the dogs did better than he's giving them credit for. Had a great time and we'll do it again soon. As for Arrow3, as I remember it you'll not be bringing any blue ribbons home from the county fair either! Good to see ya'll are still kicking down that way though, look us up sometime and tell everyone in the press shop me and Joey send our best.

Rabbit Tracks Everywhere````````````````````````````````````See them?

The two blue ticks, on the right are Father and Daughter. Oak Hill Blue ticks, from Ky. I am the owners, off all these hounds.

The other Red hounds, are Weir Creek, Lilly Creek, Radar & My Back yard breeding, which I call Daddy Rabbit Stock.

We strive to breed, hard hunting, trash free, line control hounds with good foot speed.

Here is a link too my web sight, that was made for me, by Sally Iff Oakhills, in Ky.

Daddy Rabbit: I believe the tri's have extinguished the fiery eyes, as the Preacher would not come to the "proveing grounds" today. By the way, if you need more dog power in the next few days just let me know, as I've got one dog leased out to the bethel preacher to train his pup with and she could be available on a short-call basis. Good luck with your hunts and Happy New Year to you and the family!::ke:::ke:::ke:::ke:::ke:::ke::banana:
