Maybe my neighbor has one or two.  His old hound had a litter of eight.  Two walkers, a black and tan, three bluetics, and two I can't quite place.  As far as I know, they are Applician Turkey dogs.  I think the pups stepsire was registered.

I think Noble is as close to an Appalachian Turkey Dog as anyone's ever gonna get. It appears that this breed was invented by some backyard breeder to add value to an ordinary cur dog.

I was talking to a guy today and asked him if he had ever heard of one.  His reply was, " Do they taste anything like kielbasa?"  :D

Tom,

I've not only heard of those dogs but shot several.  They got to be dangerous in our area-----cornering people and killing livestock and pets.  The whole neighborhood got together and eliminated the problem.

If I have to I will, but, it's a shame to shoot a dog whose only mistake was to be owned by someone who goes off to work and lets him run.

These are the new "ranchers" that are so common now who buy 5 acres, 3 horses, 4 dogs, chickens and a tractor.  They haven't a blade of grass on the property, the horses are starving and the dogs and chickens run loose while they spend their day in town behind a desk.

The dogs we had trouble with were strays (likely dumped by some lowlife) that started running in a pack.  They became very aggressive.

Well, fellas I just have to weigh into this, I reckon.  I do not have any hunting dogs around here, except for tresspassers.  He weighs in at 195lbs and is a great house dog to boot.  He started out to be a birthday gift but ended as the wife's puppy and my dog when he is not riding around in here Cadilac.  :D  I lost the gift. :'(

My hounds have to check out every load of logs that come into the place.  My male dog marks them.  
  A few weeks ago Rodney was unlading a truck and a rat ran out of the logs and hit a pile of lumber.  Them hounds were on it like chickens on a june bug.  They worked that pile till the rat lost it's nerve and made a break across the yard.  Never made it as Runt put the sleeper hold on it.  The curr lost interest as soon as it quite moving but the rest played with it till there was not much left.  
 LBJ is bad about getting on top of the log while it is on the mill and jumps off when the head gets near her.  She scares alot of folks the first time they see it.  I tell them she is just the log dog and has to make sure I am cutting it right.
