Rushville, IN – The three-night Salt Creek Supply/American Cooner Warm-up Hunts, preliminary contests to t he main event, the PKC Labor Day Classic have drawn 360 entries, an average attendance of 120 hounds! The third hunt in the trio, the $1500 Added hosted by the Rush County Coon Hunters drew 152 dogs on Wednesday night.

Headquarters for the hunt, the Walker Community facility on Indiana Highway 44, just east of the town of Homer was jammed with hunters at the draw out, just the kind of crowd we’ve come to expect on the Wednesday night hunt.

The members of the Rush County Coon Hunters form a hardworking crew for this event. From the entry tables, to the kitchen, to the legwork in the woods, they are willing and able to conduct a quality PKC event and they certainly did last night. Thanks and God bless them for the job they did. They are a great group to work with.

And our congratulations go to the winners that left the clubhouse with that good old “PKC Green” tucked in their jeans.

We’ll be back with the report of the first night of the gigantic and prestigious PKC Labor Day Classic tomorrow night, right here on PROHOUND Online where it’s,

“All the winners. All the time!”
