2012 Sunshine State

June 2012 The Hunters Horn Magazine Cover On February 2-4, we held the Annual Three Day Sunshine State at the Carolina Running Pen at Andalusia, AL. We would like to thank Paul Tribble for the use of this fine facility and for having the pen in such great shape. We would also like to thank Sylvia and Betty for the great cooking. If anyone leaves this pen hungry, it is their own fault because their cooking is as good as it gets.
This year we cast 90-95 hounds on day one and running was near constant for five hours with a lot of grey fox being run.
Days two and three were good, but with the conditions and wind, it was tough on the judges to hear the packs but they did a remarkable job. At the pen, they crowned a very deserving hound as Champion, Top Flite Cook, owned by Top Flite Kennels. Congratulations to Charlie and Cody.
As for the judges, everyone knows how tough it is to get enough judges for a three day but these people were more than happy to help out. The judges were: Master of Hounds and Bench Show Judge Larry Etheridge, Don Kiblinger, Runt Cain, Horsefly, Dennis Myrick, Joe Paul Stanford, Hilliard Courtney, Lawrence Philpot, Chew, Jim Huie, Brenda Davis and Gary Hardy.
Without you, this hunt would not be possible so thank you all from Scott and myself. We also want to thank Speciality Feeds for donating the dog food and Johnson’s and Quick Track for the tracking collars. Thanks to all the hunters who support us every year. You all really make it happen! We hope you enjoyed yourselves and we hope to see you again very soon.
