Skuna River Hydee Walker Days Champion
Posted on 04/18/2011 in Coonhounds.
A newly implemented format, to name an overall winner, had the two high scoring Treeing Walkers from Friday and the two high scoring Treeing Walkers from Saturday night compete in a one-hour hunt off Sunday morning. With approximately five minutes left in the hunt, Skuna River Hydee treed split from other cast mates creating an exciting finish in the Final Four. She was on a den tree. As luck would have it for owner/handler Gary Starns, the coon popped it's head out of the hole long enough for the non-hunting judges and all to see. This gave her the edge and winning score (275+) over runner-up 100 Proof Doc with no time left on the clock.
Hydee earned a ticket into the Final Four after a 2nd Place Grand Nite placement on Friday night. Hydee is a 2004 model sired by Skuna River Fred off of a Sackett Jr. granddaughter. Congratulations to Gary Starns of Ada, Oklahoma on a fantastic 2011 Treeing Walker Days win with GRNITECH 'PR' Skuna River Hydee!
Also, a special thanks to the Treeing Walkers Breeders & Fanciers in conjunction with the Host Club; Limberlost Coonhunters Association on a well organized and fantastic 2011 Walker Days!
