Intelligent, pleasing. An equally fine companion for a day at
home or a night of hunting.
An intelligent, cold-nosed, honest hunter, that trees hard and long,
the Bluetick has the ability and endurance to stay on the most intricate
track. He is a free tonguer on the trail with a medium bawl or bugle
voice when striking and trailing. This changes to a steady chop
when running and a steady course chop at tree.
for: Active people & families.
