Hound needs rancher, hunter or good ol' boy

Less than a year old and already 70 pounds, Cooper a possible Plott, catahoula or bloodhound mix, perhaps even Dane and is a lot of dog who needs a job and room to live. He bays, he tracks and he is a quick learner, but not if other dogs are involved. Too much dog for me, he creates havoc with my other four rescues.
Cooper is a red Merle with a touch of blue in one eye. He has huge white paws some white stripe down his chest and a smattering of black dots on his nose.
I rescued him about three months ago from a yard of a duplex he was quickly outgrowing. He has been vetted, wormed, vaccinated and castrated.
He is still full of puppy antics and is very strong. He could be a one dog family pet or easily be trained for hunting. He can stay sweet, but in the wrong hands become vicious. No doubt he would hunt hogs, especially with his size, drive and focus.
Although he has made friends with my indoor alpha cat under supervision, outdoors he would no doubt kill a cat.
I'm getting desperate with SPCA saying he is too much for their program. There are no fees for adopting Cooper.
He has initiated fights with my other dogs and they are all beat up. It turns into rumbles that Cooper comes out of unscathed.
Cooper needs a rancher who will put him to work. He rides well and he has a huge bark.
One on one he sits, stays and listens and has intense focus if you are working with him teaching. And he is surprisingly affectionate.
I've tried rotating dog run time, muzzles, training to the leash and more, but with the distraction of my other dogs Cooper is not getting the quality attention he deserves.
I'll gladly send photos to serious inquiries and I'm will to transport within Texas state lines. Please pass this on to anyone who might want a ranch hunting hound.
