    The 2012 NC State Championship, as recognized by UKC, is now history. The event made a successful move from Moore County to Salisbury, NC this year. The show had 89 dogs shown over the course of 2 days. The nite hunt entries were at over 120 entries for the two days with a significant drop, due to thunderstorms on the second night after an 80 plus entry night on Friday. Winners will be published in COONHOUND BLOODLINES. Attached is a picture of the overall hunt winner:

    I do not want to start an arguement on the forum, but for those that realize that shared use of land is becoming a bigger issue and for many clubs adding small game hunters to your deer lease for 'after deer season' hunting is a great way to increase revenue for the club without adding more deer hunters. I have attached a study by the SC DNR which seems to point out that sport raccoon hunting has minimal to no impact on deer movement. Hopefully this scientifically conducted study will help get a few coonhunters access to land, even if it is after deer season...
    Hope everyone is having fun fishing this spring!

    A comment titled: Hogs in response to a report titled: hog hunting at butner falls

    I have coonhunted Butner/Falls lake Gamelands for 10 plus years. I have never seen a hog on this land. There are some coyotes as mentioned earlier, but hogs are usually eastern or slightly south of the triangle area. The closest i have seen them to the Raleigh area is the lowgrounds of Johnston county around Brogden.
    I also coonhunt the gamelands in Nash County and have not seen any there either.

    A comment titled: Shared hunting land, just a suggestion in response to a report titled: Raccoons and Corn

    Consider getting a coonhunter to join your club or hunt your property with coonhunting access only. The coonhunting season lasts until the end of February, since deer hunting season ends Jan 1 you can allow access to someone who can assist in lowering the coon population and they will likely have fun doing it. I am a member of a deer club that allows me access to the land for coonhunting Jan 1 - Jun 1 and it's a great way to share access.

    A comment titled: Coonhunting in response to a report titled: Coonhunting Jordan Or Chatham Game Lands?

    Sorry I missed this, I do not browse the forum here much...
    Next year you should give it a try. I know Jordan has some good coonhunting, it's best to wait after deer season as all that activity seems to blow it up for awhile...

    If you are ever east of Raleigh members of Toisnot Swamp Coon Club in Wilson are nice, they have a facebook and have often let folks stay at their club and pleasure hunt.

    A comment titled: Grand American in response to a report titled: 2011 NC State Coonhound Championship

    The Grand American is one of the largest coonhunting events in the US. A hunter from Middlesex, NC won First Place Nite Champion and Fourth Place overall, a NC dog from the western portion of the state won First place overall...I was proud to see NC so well represented.

    I went to the GA for Saturday to walk around and buy a few supplies. My kids love it.

    A comment titled: Yes, those are nice hounds in response to a report titled: 2011 NC State Coonhound Championship

    I am proud of the way most coonhunters take care of their hounds.
    I love a good coonhunt and try to go a few nights per week all year long. I can relate to the statement that it's hard to find a place to go. I lay low in Deer season, out of respect, and hit it hard afterwards. I myself have 2 Redbone coonhounds, both females.

    A comment titled: coonhunter here in response to a report titled: Deer Population

    I coonhunt off New Light Rd, saw a nice Buck there (for Gamelands) several times deep in closer to the bridge than the parking spot that is cable gated. He was broke off on one side or would have been an 8, as he was a 4 and a nub. He was smart, would sit right there while we walked to the dog and watch us again as we walked her back by on a leash, he recognized we were no danger to him...I think it takes alot of smarts for a deer to make it to 8 pts on game lands...jmo
