It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

Two Wins 800 Miles Apart

Yesterday was a good day.  Logan Elm dogs won two different trials on the same day 800 miles apart.  Zach Moore called me from Kansas on his way home from an ARHA Little Pack trial in Oklahoma.  Logan Elm Blue Ace won the open class which made him a LP Champion.

Zach has owned Ace for a while and doesn't run him in competition too often, but yesterday was his day.  Ace is a grandson of Logan Elm Blue Rocky.  Even as a pup he could run a lot of rabbit so I am not surprised at his success.

Also yesterday, Jeff Allen, Jim Schneider and I headed over to Coshocton, Ohio to the LP hunt.  It was a good time seeing Ivan Mast, the Hughes, Dennis Kennedy, Brian and Jackie Haywood, Jay Hershberger, Delbert and Laverne, and all the bunch there.  They have a great club and we had a lot of fun.  On my cast the first round we saw over 20 rabbits in the one hour cast.  It was unbelievable.

Logan Elm Stubby won the open class.  I was just hoping to get him qualified for the ARHA World Hunt.  He hadn't been in a LP hunt for quite a while, but it didn't seem to matter.  Stubby is a son of Logan Elm Blue Rocky.

I was happy to see these two dogs do well just because of how it reminded me of the days running Rocky years ago. He provided quite a few good times, both at the hunts and in the field running.

Congrats to Zack on his success!  I hope to see Ace in the champion results in the future.
