USDM Andy Fryer and bloodhounds

Robert Ernst has good article in the latest Oklahombres Journal ("A Texas Lawman Enters Oklahoma--And Dies") which mentions USDM Andy J Fryer. This is of interest to me because USDM Fryer is mentioned in my great grandfather's (Captain JJ Kinney)diary as the keeper of a pack of bloodhounds loaned out to officers in the aftermath of crimes.

On September 15, 1891, Captain Kinney "got a message at 10 PM stating that No. 3 was held up by train robbers at Leliaetta at 9 Pm." The next day, he and Captain Leflore "got a posse of ten men and started after the train robbers at 11 AM. Took Andy Fryer's bloodhounds to Leliaetta but they would not take the trail."

I get the impression that bloodhounds were frequently used during those days. But does anybody have any impression on how successfully they were used?

In my next book, a bio on Bass Reeves, there is a story that took place in the middle of the first decade of the 20th century. Reeves and a lawman who owned bloodhounds went out after an attempted murderer. It was so hot that the bloodhounds gave out. Reeves devined which way the outlaw went and caught him.
