NITE CH GR CH 'PR' Hicks' Smoky Mt. Kawliga

Kawliga was the grandson of Plotts John and sired by NITE CH Purdue's Plott Boss.  

Kawliga was the great sire of all my dogs.  He had a loud, coarse mouth, was extremely cold nosed, and would run a track until it was treed.  He stayed treed one time for three nights and two days.


NITE CH 'PR' Hicks' Rough Ridge Snoot

Snoot was the best coonhound and fastest dog I ever owned.  She was a quick hard tree dog, and great pleasure and competition dog.  She was capable of winning the world hunt if only I had the money to campaign her.  I crossed her five times to Kawliga.  This cross became the backbone of my breeding program. She was sired by John's Radio Jack, who was sired by Scott White's Rambler. Her Dam was a female called Rough Ridge Liz, who I bought from Douglas Simspon out of Crescent, Oklahoma.  

GR NITE CH 'PR' Star Mt. Joe

Joe was from the Kawliga and Snoot cross. Joe was an extremely good hound.  He had Snoot's brain and Kawliga's nose.  He performed really well in all kinds of weather conditions, especially rain or snow.  He could take a cold track and drift it out and get treed, and he would always have the coon.  Joe was an exceptionally good competion dog because of his ability to tree a bad track and stay treed, and of his accuracy.  Many of the top hunters that hunted with Joe said he was the best dog they ever hunted with.

NITE CH 'PR' Hicks' Rough Ridge Slick

Slick was like his mother Snoot -- extremely fast, extra hard tree dog -- and the best lay up dog that I ever owned.  He nite championed in three hunts with two first and a fourth place. He was also out of Kawliga and Snoot.

'PR' Hicks' Rough Ridge Sally

Sally was also from the Kawliga and Snoot cross.  She was never hunted in a hunt, but a great pleasure coon dog, and great reproducer.  I bred her to my friend's BRO Robert Longshores NITE CH Cody.  A female from this cross called Kentucky Jill was the mother of NITE CH Hicks' Sniper Duke.    

CH 'PR' Rough Ridge Sounder

Sounder was sired by NITE CH Hicks' Rough Ridge Slick.  His dam was Womac's Plott Blackie. Sounder was a great coon dog in any kind of conditions.  It was easy for him to tree five singles a night in cold winter weather.  He was very accurate and a great check dog.  

NITE CH 'PR' Hicks' Rough Ridge Casey

Casey was sired by GR NITE CH Otto's Sarge and his dam was a daughter of NITE CH Hicks' Rough Ridge Slick that I purchased from my friend John Chester.  My grandson Scott Trueblood is holding Casey.  He was a great coon dog.  He handled perfect and was hard tree dog with a fast machine gun chop.  He produced a lot of great dogs.  He was in the top ten reproducing males.  He was great competition dog.  













CH NITE CH 'PR' Hicks' Wilderness Jim

Jim was out of Nite CH Hicks' Rough Ridge Casey and NITE CH Moses Rough Ridge Sadie.  Sadie was out of GR NITE CH Star Mt. Joe and Moses Jodie, which is the daughter of NITE CH Hicks' Rough Ridge Slick.  Jim was a great pleasure hound and competition hound also. He was super in all fields, and a great reproducer too.  His abilities were equal to those of CH GR NITE CH Hicks' Rough Ridge Stormy.  He was in the top ten reproducing males.

NITE CH CH 'PR' Hicks' Sniper Duke

Duke was a great hound, and he sired many great dogs.  He was a great pleasure and competition dog.  He handled the best, was extremely intelligent, and was an all around very tough hound.  I could hunt him every night and never wear him down.  He was very fast, accurate, and a hard tree dog.  I never had to leash him in the woods except to take him off the tree. He was trained by Carl Ratliff and Lester Clinton.  He was in the top ten reproducing males.  I bought him at 2 years old, and he died at 12 years old.  

'PR' Hicks Smoky Mt. Smokey

Smokey, who is 14 years old, has been a great hound..  He is top reproducer of good track and tree dogs.  Smokey is linebred back on Joe.  He is very heavy bred top and bottom on my old line of dogs (Kawliga and Snoot).  Smokey has their abilities, and the ability to reproduce these great abilities in his offspring.

CH GR NITE CH 'PR' Hicks' Rough Ridge Stormy DNA-P

Stormy, who is 13 years old, is my all time favorite.  He always gives it his best every time -- unleashed, cold, hot, rain, snow, pleasure hunting, or competition hunting.  He is a winner and true champion.  He has sired 197 puppies.  Also, he qualified for the UKC World Hunt in 2004 and 2006.  No matter what you hunted Stormy with, he would come up the winner.  He is the most consistent hound I have ever seen.  He was in the top ten reproducing males.  

NITE CH 'PR' Kirks Hoss Creek Elle

Ellie was sired by CH NITE CH Hicks' Wilderness Jim and Hicks' Rough Ridge Neil.  Ellie made NITE CH with three first place wins. She's a coon dog in every way.  She is about 95% accurate.   She is the kind of dog that everyone wants to own.
