>This one mentions J R McDuffie who is breeder of some of our ES/OTFS
This was a very interesting article. There are many "coon clubs" close around our area and there are a lot of curs that are run there. A man not to far from us raises or at least use to raise Leopard Curs. Many still use the blue or red ticks, plotts and black and tan hounds.
This is where my son got interested in coon hunting but our ES were as good or better than some of these dogs in the hunt. He quit trying to use the "hunting dogs" and started taking his own dog.
Thanks for the link,
