Treeing Walker History

JOHN J. MONROE

Our Friend Mr. John J. Monroe has recently undergone heart surgery.  We wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully he will be back doing what he loves so much. Coon Hunting.  If you love the Treeing Walker Coon Hound Breed and especially the Finley River Strain of hounds you owe John Monroe a big thank you.


Through the years he has had a big impact and influence on the Treeing Walker Breed of Coon Hounds.  He has owned and studded some of the top and famous hounds in our breed.  FINLEY RIVER CHIEF, 1965 ACHA WORLD CHAMPION CLAXTON'S FINLEY RIVER SPOT, GRAND NITE CHAMPION MONROE'S FINLEY RIVER JOE, DUAL GRAND CHAMPION BEAVER LAKE LIGHTING, GRAND NITE CHAMPION FINLEY RIVER PETE, 2009 ACHA WORLD CHAMPION BUCK CREEK IKE are just a few of the top hounds he has offered to the public.

Working With New Scanner - New Forum Added

As I mentioned in an earlier post we were getting a new scanner.  We have had it for a while but just took it out of the box and working on getting to know it and how to use it.  We have a lot of pictures and information to archive.  Over the last few months we have been gathering a lot of great information and pictures.

We are always looking for more so anyone that has pictures or stories or information they want to share please feel free to do so.  We will give you credit on anything you provide if you want the credit or keep it quite if you don't.

We have also added a forum to the website.  This forum is open to questions and discussions.  Please feel free to join it (it costs nothing) and help make this a great forum.  If there are categories we need to add please let us know.

This Website, Forum and Blog is about preserving the History of this great Treeing Walker Breed.  It is about providing a place where you can research for the history, a place you can see hard to find pictures and ads.  It is about providing a place to celebrate and enjoy the past so we can know where we are going.

On the Forum we will have pictures and ads that aren't on the website.  We have a few now and will be adding more every week.  Check them out and please take part or start discussions.
