For those who know of Wyoming mountain cur's from the last few year's, my daughter Maranda Kuck was the owner/operator and I was providing the stud dog's. She had the females but has since quit the dog breeding business after doing a great job of breeding and promoting this breed. I am just now starting back up and hope to do as well as Maranda. I am Perry Elliott the new-old guy and for my kennel I chose the name Caleb because of the Biblical Caleb. When facing the Giants who were inhabiting the promised land he and Joshua had no fear.. They believed the Lord fully and could take the land that the Lord promised. After hunting these dogs they have the same heart, only to them you are the lord. They give with all there heart. A little about myself and how I started. I had have been running tree dogs now for 30 years. I started with Walker Hounds along with Plott and Bluetick. They are great dogs but did not fit me in all I wanted my dog to be. So after 15 years of hounds I did some internet research on a breed I had read about in my old Coonhound and Full Cry magazines. After researching Mountain Curs or Curs, it seemed like there were several different breeds within the Cur breed. So I picked two, the Kemmer stock Mountain Cur and the OMCBA Mountain Cur. My thinking came down to the Presidents of the these two Associations. If the presidents are not producing good dogs then I did not need to spend more time there. After raising and working with the two my all around favorite was my Caleb's Jake from Carl Smith in the OMCBA. This dog had brains, grit, speed, solid as they come on the tree, and would adapt to my ever changing activities. He would run a Mountain Lion one day, go trapping Bobcat the next, then shift to Beaver in helping to locate lodges and banked beavs the next. No matter what you were doing he adapted and gave it 100% everyday. The Kemmer Cur was a very good dog but did not fit me as well. Since I have been hunting and breeding this very special dog we have breed dogs that tree Lion, Bobcat, Coons, Dogging Coyotes, go camping, backpacking, trapping, or just a lazy day on the boat fishing. Where you are they want to be there with you.
