More than 200 of the country’s finest hounds, advanced from the original pack of almost 900 dogs that participated in the zones. From the initial group of 730 advanced Nite Hunt entries, 95 dogs qualified to hunt in the World Championship.

 

In the Bench Show, 117 dogs resulting from 153 advanced entries were shown. These amazing hounds endured the cool, and sometimes rainy weather that drizzled, but did not drench the spirits of the participants at the 2000 U.K.C. World Coonhound Championship held this past weekend.

 

Coonhound owners, handlers, and of course the best dogs in the world, voyaged from the four corners of this country with aspirations of winning it all!

 

“The final cast hunted like world champions should,” said Todd Morgan, U.K.C.’s Official Reporter on the Champion Cast, “The dogs battled it out for 2 hours, until the Nite Hunt Champion treed a coon in the last 15 minutes.” The fierce competition was not only apparent in the woods, but also found in the bench show arena.

 

“The U.K.C. World Show Championship recognizes the top conformation coonhounds in the country. Rewarding functional good looks is important in the ‘U.K.C. Total Dog’ philosophy.” said Todd Kellam, U.K.C. Field Operations Manager. “Ultimately, a coonhound should possess not only the natural ability to excel in the woods, but also the conformation that will allow the dog to hunt all night, every night.”

 

CH GRNITE CH ‘PR’ JIMMY D’S HANDSOME HANK, a Treeing Walker owned by Jeff Duvall / Mike Mc Comber of Tiskilwa, IL, became the World Coonhound Nite Hunt Champion Winner when treeing a coon within the last 15 minutes of the final hunt on Saturday night.

 

A young female Plott Hound, CH ‘PR’ SIMMONS IN. NIGHTFALL’S GOTCHA, owned by Lila & Elwood Simmons of Indianapolis, and handled by Randy Riggs won the World Coonhound Show Championship title.
