Actually this cross was made specifically for bigger game. The stud is a WV bear dog and the pups will be going to bear, coyote and bobcat hunters. I plan on keeping two and so far two are going to West Virginia. I'll try and get some pictures up soon.
Wayne, no, I didn't use a Pocahontas Plott from Gene Walker, but I did use a Bluff Creek Plott named Picollo owned by Genes nephew - Joe Walker. Joe, his brother Howard and his dad Norman have their own line of Plotts and are serious bear hunters. Although there are alot of good Pocahontas dogs out there, that wasn't the blood I was looking for.
Pups are a little more than 5 weeks old now. All are healthy and are acting good. It's gonna be hard to pick the ones I want to keep. I'm leaning towards both females. Wanted to get pictures today but the rain started when I got home from work.
