I run a mixed pack. I have one black & tan currently but he's been crossed up enough that he'd never meet the breed standard. I just hunt......I leave the breeding to you other guys.
If memory serves me, my old dog came from a Fireball/Kate cross. The mother was owned by a friend of mine in Provo and was a pretty decent lion/coon dog in her own right. He would have got her from Ken in the early 80's.......so hopefully the timeline is consistant.
One of my dirty little secrets is that my old dog was actually half walker.....the result of a kennel accident. I remember at a field trial Ken's son spotted it right away even though most guys thought he was pure black & tan. Nonetheless I was glad to have him and he more than earned his keep.
