Welcome to Crimson Kennels!


We are Jimmy and Tracy Hughes and we are located in North Alabama, in a small community called Greenhill.  We are a small family owned Labrador Retriever kennel that was created out of our love of labs and duck hunting.  Built in 2000, our kennel offers Labrador Retriever puppies, born here and lovingly cared for until they become part of your family!  We participate regularly in AKC Hunt Tests.  We've also participated in AKC Field Trials and the Super Retriever Series.  We are members of the Middle Tennessee Amateur Retriever Club where Tracy serves on the board, and Jimmy serves as the Treasurer of the Master National Retriever Club.  We are avid duck hunters and enjoy nothing more than spending the morning in a pit or a blind with one of our labs and watching them love it as much as we do!  Our labs are part of our family and our daily lives.  Whether we are in a holding blind at a Hunt Test, in a duck blind in an Arkansas field, or on the couch in our living room, you'll always find one of our labs close to our side.  We both enjoy all these activities, and it allows us to spend time together as a couple making lots of great memories.  It has also given us the opportunity to develop many friendships all over the United States.  We hope you enjoy our website and come back to visit often!  Click on any of the pictures on the site to enlarge them.

At the close of each season, it's alwasy fun to look back and talk about how things went that year.  And it always seems that as much fun as it is killing birds, we always talk as much about the laughter and fun times with our friends as we do about the hunting.  We talk about the shenanigans of our dogs, and wonder if it was the last trip for some of them.  We usually have a few new faces in the camp, and it is fun to develop those frienships.  But it's always extra special to spend time with our old friends, and continue to build our friendships and memories with them.  Maybe when we go hunting, it's not just the birds we are looking for.  Because it seems that we always find so very much more than that.
