Tony Browning has been mushing dogs for 43 years. Browning got into mushing to haul wood, ice, and check his trapline. The last nine years he has partnered with Aaron Burmeister Alaskan Wild Style Racing: a small kennel of 30 beautiful animals. Browning would like to thank sponsor NAC for getting him to Kotzebue. He would also like to thank his wife Marion, Aaron and his wife for all their support, and handler Eddie Burke Jr. for his great help with everything. About the Kobuk 440, Browning says "the Kobuk valley is my favorite place and I love the people."
