SPRING CREEK ROCK and DUANE CLARK


Spring Creek Rock had a great impact on the Treeing Walker Breed.  Not because of a lot of hype or full page color ads every month in the magazines.  He had an impact for a number of reasons. 

He had a good solid pedigree besides being a grandson of Finley River Chief.

 He was a good looking hound that was colored up differently then a majority of the walker hounds of the day.  His looks got people wanting to know more about him. 

He was a good coon hound that could also compete in the big hunts of the day.

He was the National Grand Nite Champion 2 years in a row and the National Grand Nite Champion Treeing Walker 3 years in a row.  Titles won at Autumn Oak.  Then Duane Clark put Spring Creek Rock in the new Professional Organization PCA  and their hunts.  There again Spring Creek Rock proved he was a winner.

He reproduced top hounds of his day.  Many of his sons and daughters were not only big winners they also proved to be good reproducers for the Treeing Walker Breed. 

It was because of SPRING CREEK ROCK that people started talking about a Spring Creek Strain of hounds.  BUT


There were other hounds from the Spring Creek Kennels of Duane Clark.

Duane Clark had the foresight to collect Spring Creek Rock semen before people even knew if it would ever be an acceptable practice.  Duane Clark deserves and is owed better then what happened with HIS Rock semen.
