I have a friend in Idaho that is expecting a litter of pups from his bitch Dossie. Dossie came out of our D-Litter. Edd and his wife own, and run a hunting lodge in Idaho. They are experienced and excellent handlers. If you are interested in one of these pups and would like more information please contact:

Sage (Sage Von Riggan Hibbs SW) will be 5 months old in about a week. I kept her from our last breeding. She has a great temperament along with a really good nose. Here are a couple pictures of her enjoying the fall leaves.
I received this picture of another successful deer track in Alabama involving a recent F-Litter pup named Jen (Feisty Von Riggan Hibbs). This recovery involved a non-typical deer that had been gut shot about 24 hrs. earlier. This was a pretty impressive track for young dogs (Jen is not quite 5 months old). I think much of the success is due to the training and experience of these handlers. For the complete story of the track go to www.alabamadeertracking.com Then go to latest tracks.
Fall is upon us and the tracking season is in full swing. It has been a busy season for us, and a while since I posted anything. I plan to get in the deerstand soon. I’m hoping for a mature buck.
I’ve recently gotten several pictures of some successful tracks. Two of the pups pictured are from the F-Litter (Jimmy Dean and Jen). They are young (4.5 months) and this is their first season. The picture of Jen also includes another young pup named Ray. He came from a different kennel than ours. Ellie Mae from Missouri is from the E-Litter. She is about 1.5 years of age. I really enjoy staying in contact with the owners and hearing how the dogs are doing.
Good luck to everyone this season!
The last three F-Litter pups have been picked up by their new owners. The reports have been good. It sounds like they’re settling in nicely. We decided to keep one of the seven pups (Sage). Sage is doing great. She is being mentored by my older dogs Echo and Jetta. As the days and evenings start to cool off, I am looking forward to Fall, and the upcoming hunting season.
