    What stock of dog are ya running?

  • Darrin's avatar

    @Oak Mostly 1/2 Tree hound 1/2 Running hound. The two in the video are heavy Trigg with very little tree dog. Nearly everything I have has come out of Oklahoma.

    @Darrin what's the breeding in the trigg side of the hounds your getting out of Oklahoma?

  • Darrin's avatar

    @Oak I’m not completely sure. I have 3 that have at least half Trigg and I know there’s a very small amount of Cecil Boggs breeding a few generations back but I don’t have any sort of papers on them. Everything else I have from Oklahoma is pure running hound.

    @Darrin gotcha, I live about 45 mins away from Cecil, have tried some pups from him and borrowed some brood gyps in the past, a few years back he told me he sold a bunch of dogs to a guy in Oklahoma, wondered if that was gonna be some of his stock

  • Darrin's avatar

    @Oak Yep, probably the same stuff. I believe they bought several while they were there.

    @Darrin 👍👍, there is a guy in Missouri who raises triggs too, he swapped dogs with Cecil quite a bit, I know he got some of the dogs Cecil had left before he got rid of them a few years ago, a pretty blue trigg I had gotten from Cecil as a pup that ultimately didn't work out for me made it down to this fellow, she had been in on quite a few grey fox and cat catches. She never quite had the speed I wanted , so I let her go after about 2 1/2 years of hunting her. But man was she pretty and a sweet little personality

    @Oak The guy in Oklahoma, where mine came from, went with him when they bought those from Cecil but I can’t recall his name at the moment.

  • Oak Haven's avatar

    @Darrin got to thinking about it, and I believe the guy who got the blue trigg from Mr boggs I had run on grey's and cats is in Mississippi, my geography ain't great lol

    @Oak 😁 I had coyote hounds for many years and a good friend from Rushville, Mo. , Glenn Webb, had nearly all Trigg hounds. He and Cecil were friends so Glenn had some of his breeding. A guy from Southern Missouri bought a pickup load of dogs from Cecil a few years ago to run on cats and that’s who the guy in Oklahoma went with when that took place.

    Yeah I remember him saying he sold a ton to a guy out that way when I visited and the number of dogs on the place were low. I have heard Mr Boggs speak about Mr Webb on several occasions. Those guys who are real trigg fanciers seem to love them. I raised a half trigg off the last gyp Mr Boggs bear hunted and a foxhound of mine, she raised 2 both nice dogs, none the other triggs I've tried ever worked out for my need, but those 2 half triggs x walker would get the job done in the thick or the open

    I have talked to alot of people over the years about how all the guys out west, (and I mean west west not mid west) all think the trigg hound is the best line of American foxhounds to cross with and maintain treeing power and some other traits. It's funny to me because the walker dogs have always seemed a step faster, nose as good, stamina as good or better, desire to catch as good, treeing and locating as good. But they didn't know where to look, and started with a trigg from the Carolinas from a guy named Boozer I believe, who when someone was visiting fell out a race and treed or something to that effect. I've hunted my whole life around people who loved foxhounds that treed a d bred that trait forward, but none were field trial era or big name hunters just run of the mill guys most of which had grade dogs and caught plenty of game year in and year out.

    @Darrin forgot to tag ya on the other comments

  • Darrin's avatar

    @Oak I have several opinions on the Trigg breed but won’t put them on here. I’ve owned several throughout the years and have seen some good ones that were used to run coyotes. The ones I have now lack treeing ability.

    @Darrin as with all breeds there is the good and the bad.

    @Oak Absolutely!!!

Trapping, hunting big game with hounds. I’ve been hunting hounds for over 40 years but also have enjoyed hunting other game without hounds. The outdoors has always been a huge part of who I am.
