The South Carolina State Youth hunt was held on January 23, 2016 by the Norway Coon Hunters Association. It was a cold, nasty day but it didn't keep the youth from showing and hunting their hounds!! 29 kids went to the woods! I don't think that many adults would have gone out in that weather. This is the future of our sport.
Thanks to Mark Whetstone, Timmy Hughes, Cleo and Doug Bowers for all they do. I am sure there were many others, so forgive me if I didn't mention you. Thank you, Tractor Supply for all of your help.
Here are some pictures:
