Zeus the Sire

Zeus is my hunt buddy, tracker, deer runner, and friend.  Zeus is a one-of-kind natural alpha self starting lead hunt hound that has never been outperformed. He averages 90 pounds and is gentle to those he loves including our pet deer.  His largest trophy hunt is a 12-point whitetail deer scoring 168 Boone & Crockett.  Zeus is a self-starter and typically runs 3 miles and returns to starting point, getting in 3 to 6 starts a day; the highest his Garmin GPS collar logged for a entire days hunt was 40 miles. Over a dozen deer are harvested in front of Zeus each year and multiple blood trails tracked and located.  Zeus is stately, calm, confident and holds his tail high with a distinct deep resonating coonhound bawl. Zeus never starts a fight with other hunt dogs but always ends them.

 
 

 

 

Athena the Dame

Athena is happy go lucky great hunter, tracker and short runner (less than one mile per run) with an enthusiastic personality that compliments Zeus' quiet, gentle personality.

The Bluetick Hound, Why We Love Them:

 

There is greatness in all dogs and all breeds. There is a quality about a Bluetick coonhound that just puts a catch in your heart. It may be the incongruity of the breed - here is a dog with the endurance and fortitude to trail and track all night, the intelligence and instinct to follow a lead across miles of varying terrain, and the uncanny ability to turn up the next morning - with torn pads and ears - in the same spot where the hunt began, waiting stoically for his human to find him ---- Seemingly imperturbable with their doleful expressions and simple needs, they are also almost heartbreakingly vulnerable - as if their contentment with humble fare is a defense against the possibility that there may never be more offered. But nothing compares to the adoring look in those houndly eyes, nor the profound sigh of bliss when that large head is lowered onto your lap to receive gentle petting. Euphoric appreciation attends every meal placed before a coon hound, and there is not another dog we know who can appreciate with such utter abandon the exquisite comfort of a soft, fleecy bed ---- In these gentle giants' demeanor there are recognition and abject gratitude for the love they inspire in a human heart. Coonhounds bond in a deep and undemanding manner. Their easy-going personalities help them settle into the rhythms of home life easily and naturally, and they are perfect examples of how to make the most of any situation - from down time to play time - no dog sleeps better, bounds into the turck more joyously, endures more patiently, or loves more faithfully than a Bluetick coonhound. - Unknown Author with a few slight modifications by Teddy

"I wanted to give you an update on a pup I purchased last spring (female with the recessive brown trait). She was the 'runt' of the litter. She is the smartest hound I have ever owned, She started treeing squirrels in my yard at 5 months old. She is the most obedient hound I have ever owned also. I started taking her coon hunting about 3 weeks ago. She has treed a coon on 4 out of 6 trips. All of this was done alone. She has never been with another dog. I have never had a hound start that quick.  I had been out of the sport of coon hunting for 30 years. I am starting to get back into it. She has really got me fired up. I plan to take her out squirrel hunting next weekend.  She may have been the runt and look different from a traditional Bluetick, but she is one good dog...."
