Below is a poem that I wrote as part of my multi-genre project for a writing workshop class for college. My topic for my project is Rob and his love for coonhunting.
 
I THINK HE'S CRAZY
By:  Katina Childers
 
The moon is peeking from behind the clouds on a bitter winter night.
The silence in the timber is deafening, the animals taking refuge
As he loads his hounds into the dog box in the back of his pickup truck.
This is an evening for training the wee ones, out he goes into the night.
Why does he do it?  I think he's crazy!
 
Another night he drives twelve hours to make the competition deadline.
He walks in with an empty stomach and a hunting light around his neck
As he enters the hunt and prepares his hound, it's clear that they are ready.
He's in for a night of climbing up and down the merciless hills of Alabama.
Why does he do it?  I think he's crazy!
 
He and his hound are leading the hunt but a dog fight is brewing
He gets to the tree in time to see a plott hound hanging off the side of Razor's neck
As Razor stays steady treeing every breath; he can take all the pressure in the world.
But they try to scratch both dogs and off they go to argue it out with the Master of Hounds.
Why does he do it?  I think he's crazy!
 
He gets home from a hard day of trimming trees, cutting off dead limbs.
He pops in his head for a quick hello and out to the kennels he goes
As the redbones wail out to him in anticipation and hunger.
There are dogs to feed, kennels to clean, water to change and nails to trim.
Why does he do it?  I think he's crazy!
 
He and Razor win National Redbone Days, Best Overall Dog of Hunt.
In the same year, he is honored with the Purina Outstanding Redbone of the Year
As all of his peers watch him be presented with this prestigious award
And then he hands me the money, the means and the dog to win the same award for the show.
I think I understand him now.... either that or we are BOTH crazy!

About Us (Rob & Katina Childers):

Rob has been hunting for well over 33 years. Has been addicted to coon hunting since that first time out. He was a bluetick man until he met me (Katina) & I fell in love with the redbone breed.  We have been committed to redbones since 1998 when we married & got our first pair of redbone hounds.

Our journey with these redbone coonhounds have led us all over the country and made us many friends.  We enjoy campaigning, raising, training & loving these dogs as a family. 
Coonhunting has become one of three things that truly bound our marriage. The other two are our Faith in the Lord and our children. 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Rob & I just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and have a blended family- his, hers & ours.  Kadie (14) is our beautiful daughter together.  She is the glue that bonds our family together.  Kat has two daughter's (Courtney Breeann-19) & Cassi-21) and Rob has a daughter (Courtney Michelle-24) & a son (Dakota-22). 
 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
 
This redbone venture has been rewarding, heart warming and at times heart breaking.  We've had the pleasure to own some of the best in the breed.  We've also lost some of the best over time.  Many have touched our hearts that can not be replaced- such as Razor, Trippy, T-Rex, Rooster, Star & Anvil- just to name a few.
 
We take a lot of pride in showing and hunting stock that was bred in this kennel.  You can see a list of titles achieved in our kennel on the "Reflections" page and dogs bred by Tree Rizin' Redbones are clearly marked.  
 
As of March 2013, Tree Rizin' Redbones is credited with:
 
66 Show Champions
26 Grand Show Champions
16 Nite Champions
2 Grand Nite Champion
10 Conformation Champions
1 Field Champion
1 Water Champion
1 Grand Water Champion
____
123 titles in all ~ I need to update this list!!
 
2001 Purina Outstanding Redbone of the year (hunt)
2004 Purina Outstanding Redbone Female of the year (show) 
Final UKC Top Ten 7 times in the past 7 yrs
2008 Purina Outstanding Redbone of the Year (Show)
& numerous state and national show & hunt wins
 
Our proudest accomplishments come on a personal level:
 
2003 American Redbone Assn's Show Person Of the Year (Kat)
2006 American Redbone Assn's Hunter of the Year (Rob)
 
These are huge accomplisments and can only be won once in a lifetime.  For both of us to do it in such a short amount of time is a great honor.
 
Raising these hounds is a labor of love.  A lot of time and energy is put into these dogs on a daily basis.  I couldn't even guess the number of hours that Rob gives to them on a weekly basis in addition to his full-time job.  The hounds have truly become a part of our lives though.  It's a labor of love and we couldn't imagine our lives without them.

Chris & Dave Condon
******************************************************************************
Chris & Dave (brothers) bought two redbone puppies from us out of Razor & Star about 3 years ago.  Little did we know that crossing paths with the Condon's would lead to such a cherished friendship and eventual partnership.  Through recent years, Chris has been instrumental in putting wins on and finishing many Tree Rizin' hounds, particularly the Razor offspring.  In 2011, we invited Chris to join Team Razor officially and become part of Tree Rizin' Redbones.  He's proven his loyalty and commitment to these hounds and it seemed fitting to make him a partner.  In 2012, Dave jumped on board as well and is currently hunting X.   

Dave & Chris are an unstoppable brother team that we are so proud to have in our corner.  Never in all the years we've been running these hounds had we ever considered taking on kennel partners that would share in the Tree Rizin' legacy.  Chris & Dave made that decision very easy for us.  They are everything we could want in partners.  The future of Tree Rizin' Redbones is stronger than ever with the addition of these two men.  We are blessed to have them & are fully committed to this partnership.

~Working Together~
We truly believe that the key to a successful marriage and/or relationship is your Faith in the Lord and finding something to bring you together as one. The coonhounds have done that for us.
 
Rob is the 'hunting force' behind us and one of the best pup trainers around.  We don't 'dog trade' so rarely have young started dogs available but if you are fortune to catch us at a time where we need to place a young started dog- rest assured - Rob is one of the best-- he will give you a full assessment of the dogs potential & offers lifetime guidance!
 
Katina is our main show person though she has been grooming the kids in this as well & they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
 
Some of our proudest moments include these wins:
