The NC State Youth Championship (UKC) also commonly called the 'State Youth Hunt' will be held June 2, 2012 in Norwood, NC. There will be a UKC Licensed Bench Show at 1pm, followed by a treeing contest for the kids to enter their dogs in, then a 'coon squalling' contest for the kids to show off their talent. The final event of the day/evening at 7pm is a UKC Licensed Nite Hunt for the kids only, up to 18.
This is one the the nations largest Youth Hunts and if your child has ever read 'Where the red Fern Grows' this is a great chance to come out see what coonhunts are all about. This event is family friendly and full of fun. The daytime events are very fun and spectator friendly.
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!
