DuQuoin, IL – In most circles, a heart attack is a bad thing. It’s hard to imagin e anything good coming of things when one occurs. Usually, when a heart attack happens, there’s serious damage done. The smallest of elements can bring the entire system to a sudden and deadly halt.

In the big leagues of competitive raccoon hunting, hunters understand that concept, especially if they have drawn a very small Treeing Walker female out of Oklahoma that carries the name - Heart Attack. They know the serious damage she can do to one’s dream of a major title. As a year old pup, she won the PKC Junior Super Stakes Championship and second place in the prestigious PKC World hunt in a scant six days time. Members of her casts well remember the results of hunting against her.

Last night T. John Treadwell released the pup out of Rat Attack with the big heart with the expected result. The Final Four in the 2004 PKC Walker Championship was a star-studded cast that included a 2003 PKC World Hunt finalist, Richard’s Sam; the recent PKC Pro Division Champion, Southern Pines Mo; and an extremely talented PKC Gold Champion, Mister Jack. Heart Attack scored 150 plus, 25 more than Jack to take home the 2004 Walker Championship crown in a cast that consisted of two coons treed and one caught on the ground. Here’s the way they hunted and how they finished last night in DuQuoin:
