My name is Jim Whetzel i live in SW( Virginia),with my wife Tina and 2 children Zane and Samantha. The Lord has blessed my family in so many ways i could not begin to describe.I have ran beagles most of my life and just in the past couple of years gotten into Registered dogs. My goal is to produce the ultimate Redtick Gun dog. I am mostly a rabbit hunter but maybe in the very near future get into trialing some dogs. I want to be able to make friends all over this great land of ours by my pasion and others "the Hounds". What i enjoy the most is sitting on the tailgate of my truck with friends and family and listen to the hounds pound a rabbit in the brush. I beleive there are honest people still in this land and that is what i will give you "Honesty " I want to bring back that a hand shake and a smile still mean something. So if you want to listen to the hounds and have a cup of coffee please give me a shout, We will have a great time i promise.
