Show Notes

In this episode Steve joins successful English Coonhound breeder Murray Ragan of

Tennessee in a discussion that explores the nuances of coon hunting in the 160-

thousand acre Dale Bumpers White River National Wild Refuge. Steve and Murray

recap their experiences hunting the refuge and discuss the changes they have

experienced in their combined sixteen years of hunting there.

The conversation turns to a discussion of Ragan’s English Coonhound Hatchie River

Dottie and his quest to achieve a reproduction record for female coonhounds. Dottie

has, to date, produced thirty pups that have earned the United Kennel Club’s coveted

The interview with Ragan, staged in a wooded setting along the banks of Arkansas’

famed White River, runs deep into many areas of hunting and breeding coonhounds

and the camaraderie between these two friends, brought together by the love of a good

hound, flows as smoothly as the mighty river itself.
