Well me and a few of the guys finally went hunting the other night. Dogs were a little rusty at first but did not take them long to get back into the swing of things. I was impressed with several of the dogs. Aggie picked it up a couple of notches and was hunting hard and it was the same for Piper. Piper was not hunting out as far but she was out staying busy. She traveled a little over 15 miles and which was farther and was faster than any of the other dogs. Anyway first we caught about a 180 sow. Dogs bayed about 500 yards from us in a pasture and had her caught before we cut the pits loose. As soon as we had her taken care of they rolled out bayed and caught a little 60 lb sow about 800 yds from the first. They bayed several times after that but were not able hold them long enough for us to get there with the catch dogs. Chase's little lacy dog also did very well. It was his first hunt and although was not getting out real far (25-100yds) he was never under your feet and did not hesitate to go 500 yds to the bay and was gone right after we took the picture.

Rambo is a Trapper grandson. He's about 8 months, and he's a gorgeous dog.

Sounds like a good hunt, congrats.

Do y'all have a 3gen on that Rambo pup? Can I get a description of his strengths and weaknesses along with those of his stud and dame? I'm curious to see how their strengths and weaknesses line up against the blood line and product.

Steve, yes and no
Rambo is still very young but when I have seen him bay he did very well. That was his only time in the woods and on top of that it was at night. But I thought he did very well. He did not necessarily stay with the other dogs the whole time but he was never just at your feet. He continuously got out of sight and would come back and check in. And went to both bays. As far as build, he is still growing of course. He has good markings and ears and he definitely won't be too big (about 40 lbs?)

The sire is Tuff (Brooks' Bull x Brooks' Fiddler). Strike dog, short range, never gets tired, very small (37 lbs.), fast, and quick. Super smart. Definitely the dominant dog at his house and can have some aggressive tendencies, but never had any problems in the box or when hunting.

Dam is Sally (M. Brooks' Trapper x M. Brooks' Ellie). ??? We don't know much about her abilities. She was bred really young accidentally, and she had only been in the woods a handful of times. She has a little more white and a little longer ears than I would prefer, but she's still within standard. About 37 lbs.
