SE Treeing Walker Days continue

UNION COUNTY — The 45th Annual Southeastern Treeing Walker Days is in its second and final day today offering those in attendance the opportunity to see the dogs competing in the event tested for their hunting skills.

The event, which is being held at the Union County Fairgrounds, began on Friday and, as on that day, today’s activities include a United Kennel Club (UKC) licensed Nite Hunt and Bench Show for UKC registered dogs only. Entries for today’s show will be taken until 9 a.m. The winners from Friday’s competition are being brought back today for the Overall SETWA, Inc. Show Champion competition. The entry fee is $20. The Pairs Class will take place after today’s show.

Tonight’s Nite Hunt will have total winnings of $1,500 with the Top 10 Registered Hounds receiving $100 each; the Top 3 Nite Champions receiving $100 each; and the Top 2 Grand Nite Champions receiving $100 each.

Double cast winners that do not make the Final Four will receive $60 each.

(Advanced entries are $30 per entry per night while entries taken on the grounds will be $60 per entry per night and will be available as long as guides are available.)

The Final Four will be a one-hour hunt-0ff with payouts of $500 (1st Place), $250 (2nd Place), $150 (3rd Place), and $100 (4th Place).

While dogs do not have to be Walker hounds to be in the Final Four, they must hunt both Friday night and tonight to be eligible for it.

In addition to the Bench Shows and Nite Hunts, this year’s Treeing Walker Days also has a wide variety of vendors offering hunting-related items, food, jewelry, clothing and craft goods.

The Fairgrounds will be open today from 8 a.m.-until.
