Kevin D, he is a spitting image of Fireball. You runnin any black dogs now?
B&Tman I know the lines your talking about hearing a lot of good things about your guy's line of Duncan hounds your breeding up that way. Ken is a heck of a guy and a fountain of info when it comes to the black dogs. He is as classy as they come true gentlemen stands behind his hounds. Yes it is amazing that he can remember about all the different dogs that he has bred and passed on in the last 40 plus years. I enjoy going up to visit for a few and it turns into a half day outing or when we talk on the phone it turns into a couple hour conversation going over his old lines and cross's hes made over the years and never go over the same stuff that we have talked about before. I am honored to know Ken as a friend and to have gotten the oportunity to spend countless hours visiting and hunting with him and look forward to many more years.
Rigdogs your Missie hound is packed with some of Duncans old stuff. She would cross good with a couple of Kens dogs and theres a couple of Duncan hounds up in MT that she would cross good too. I had Zoei here for a few of years and a male pup out of her. She was a heck of a cat dog tree coons all nite and picked up the rigging and bear hunting with ease. She hadnt been on bear much till I got her and truned into a fine bear dog, she made every tree I dumped her on. I liked her determination and heart and she passed it to her pup, plus being a big houndy female and fun to be around.
Dan v and catdogs good looking hounds and nice pics.
Jeff it is to bad about your luck and is an unfortunate thing in all hounds. I wish I could say all my hounds I have ever owned were world beaters. LOL Thats one of the main things that I really admire about Ken is his pup garauntee of one year. My first Duncan hound Boone was cull that was originally sold to a high flootin tootin cat hunter out of the basin area. Said he wouldnt tree, scared of his owne shadow ect... Ken took him back and worked him a little I took a liking to him and started working him up at Ken's place a few months later took him home. He was 6 months old when Ken got him back and 8 months old when I took him home. He turned out to be a decent hound once I got him to get over what he had been through, I by know means knew what I was doing and still dont. LOL Yes you gave your hound plenty of time 2 years, you should of taken him back up to Ken. I have seen him honor quite a few different situations. You running any black dogs now if not you should call Ken.
