Steve,

I’ve reproduced one of Doherty’s posts about his 9 mile alterna. I remember this being covered a few years ago so I performed an archive search. There may have been more posts, but they probably vanished as part of a string that included a few “terms of service” violations, lol. Anyway, his version of his 9 mile history follows:

I`ll try to shed alittle light on this thread. I cannot confirm the specific lineage of the original 2 pictures that were posted because I did not produce them. Evidently, Bob produced them and they are probably descendants from animals that I once worked with in the early to mid 90`s. I collected one female on the North (9 mile) cut in Sanderson around 1990-91. The picture that Damon posted is the correct animal. Because I could not obtain a 9 mile mate for her, I used a Hwy 90 (5 mile east of Sanderson) male that John Hollister caught to produce a couple clutches in the early 90`s. Around 1994, I obtained the 9 mile male that Gerry Salmon collected (the one Damon posted). I also obtained another 9 mile female (wc by Joe Forks) in the mid 90s. I then had 1.2 wild caughts and did produce a few clutches (probably 15-20 babies) from this trio in the mid 90s. I can`t remember who ended up with which animals, but everyone knew that the early 90s animals were not pure 9 milers. Two of the three wild caughts died around 1997, and I haven`t produced a 9 mile Sanderson since then.
Hope this helps,
David Doherty
