North Vernon, IN – Friday nights are made for coon hunting. Just ask the 328 hunters who entered pups and big dogs in the second round of the PKC Labor Day Classic here last night. The entry, when added to that of Thursday night climbs to 554 hounds. It’s amazing to note that this hunt in only 5 years or so, has grown to that level but again, considering the amazing growth and popularity of PKC hunting, it’s not surprising.

Here’s how they finished on Friday night in North Vernon.
