I have had the pleasure to hunt behind the Melon Ranch Hounds on several occasions. Dan and Joe have done a great job of carrying on their fathers line of Running Walkers. The dogs are tough and handle the heat and humidity of S. Texas like I couldn't believe. They drift out good when looking for a track and open good when they find one. The races are loud and fast and can last for 30 minutes to an hour on average. I was impressed with their ability to catch multiple cats on a hunt in the heat and humidity. The dogs handle good and are always doing what they are suppose to be doing,they are fun to hunt.

A blend of unique landscape mixed with incredible hounds provides you with a truly unforgettable experience chasing the elusive bobcat here at the Mellon Ranch. 




For 70+ years the Braman family has been perfecting a blood line that works perfectly for bobcats in the thick south Texas brush country. The hounds are bred to have speed, toughness, and the ability to do whatever it takes to consistently catch cats.

“I’m sure there are a lot of great cat hunters across this country, but I don’t know of any that catch more cats than we do. It is a combination of hound bloodline, great cat habitat, and decades of experience.” 

-Dan Braman
