Hunt Test-Imonial
Sir, I am from the mountains of Pennsylvania and got started back in to coon hunting after my retirement. I must say a lot has changed. I have a young blue dog, ‘PR’ Midnight Blue Rebel HTX, that treed his first wild coon by himself at 10 months and got his HTX title at 13 months old.

I think the HTX program is the best thing going for young dogs to prove themselves (not the handler). I had great judges all three times Rebel was hunted and feel that competition dogs should earn the HTX title at some point.

Thanks, Dave Grigg, for letting me buy this pup, and the Cambria Houndsmen of South Fork Pennsylvania, Scott Hogan and the rest of the guys at the club for your professionalism.
