Reynolds Squirrel Dog

The Finest Things of Life Are Free

​Youth Hunters of March 2016 NKC Ky State Youth Hunt

Slide Show for the Youth Hunt March 2016

South Eastern Ky Cur & Feist hosted and sponsored the NKC KY State Youth Hunt on March 26 2016.

What a wonderful day, this day is what the club is based on, to give all Youth a chance to take a squirrel dog hunting in the woods and learn the basics of hunting for squirrels with a squirrel dog. All the youth are supervised by adults but the youth handles the dog. All our competition hunts are a no kill. These hunts are scored and based on the dog's ability to locate the squirrel, tree it so the owner will know what tree it is sitting in, then it must be seen by the cast. At the end of the hunt all scores are totaled to determine the high scoring dog, then place them 1-10 as the scores permit. This youth hunt is held in March of each year. It is free to all youth age 17 and under. The club covers all the fees, lunch, snacks, drinks, prizes and plaques. We also have great sponsors to help make this day extra special. List of our sponsors below. Temps started out cool and reached 70's by afternoon for the bench and tree contest. We had a big group of future hunters to attend. A total of 24 youth and double this in adults who were excited to see their your in a competition hunt. Some for the first time and others are annual attendees for this hunt as well as scheduled hunts though out squirrel hunting season. Squirrels were on the move and all but one cast saw squirrels. We want to say Thank You to each of you who bought your youth, who offered a dog for a child who did presently have one to hunt, who led casts, who took the time to help in every area that you saw the need, taking trash out, help to keep grounds clean and to each of our sponsors, for the food, prizes, dog leads, drinks and most of all your time. All of this made it a super great day that all youth who attended will ever forget and have those memories to remain in their heart.
