Yea, I've hunted swampers a few times and they make for some awesome running. You'll think the dogs are running a deer. First time we hit them in Mississippi and my dogs which were not used to water hit the deep water and lost every one of them. They looked aweful, but dogs eventually figure it out. Not too many in KY, but there are a few down in the SW part of the state. You'd be better off to go South if you really want a swamper -- and if you go when it is wet your dogs won't look too good (in fact I was embarrased) -- even though I would have swore my dogs can run ANY rabbit before that first trip. Them critters can weigh well over 10 pounds, try backing 3 or 4 of them all day in a swamp. Most we killed weighed 4-7pounds, but the old ones can get huge.
